I have a problem with Photomerge function with Nikon D800 files (NEF and JPEGs as well), when a panorama is created, I can see only some huge pixels on the screen, but when I save a file, the other software (e.g. Nikon ViewNX) can see a normal panorama, but when I open it again in PS5, sometimes I see a normal picture, sometimes again a few huge squares (pixels?) and sometimes Photoshop crash... This problem I see only with Nikon D80 files. Could you pls help me to solve it? Thanks, Romana

It would be helpful to know the OS/version you're running on.

Can you post a screen shot of what you're seeing? Directions: How do I add a screen shot on this feedback site?

Just one more notice - sometimes this process works normally (maybe in 20%), today I stitched several panoramas from 3-6 NEF files succesfully, but sometimes is problem with two, doesn ́t matter whether you use NEFs or JPEGs from D800... I use HP workstation Z400 with 6-core Xeon W3670, 18 GB RAM and SSD OS HDD, so I don ́t think it could be a PC performance issue.

it looks like a video driver bug. I'd make sure the driver is up to date by going directly to the AMD or nVidia website
