Photoshop CC completely crashes whenever I try to use photomerge with the 'geometric distortion correction' box checked. If I do not click that box, it completes the photomerge but the image is very distorted looking because there is no correction.

If i do the photomerge in CS5 with the box checked it works just fine. I would like to use just one version of photoshop to complete this project but as it stands I have to work on my images in CC and then open CS5 to do the photomerge.

Good news bad news. You are right. I can repro this on 10.6.8 with largish sets of images when I have geometric distortion checked. Using 3 images does not crash for me.

I tried 10.7, 10.8 and 10.9 and it does not crash.

So I will log the bug on our side.

I want to set your expectations on this correctly. Since I can only get it to happen on 10.6 it is unlikely that this will be fixed anytime soon. It may get fixed but the chances are low.

I would suggest not using geometric distortion check box in CC. I know that is a pain but that is where we are at.

If you are able to update your OS that may be a good option for you too.
