But first… here are some guidelines for taking your photos for a panorama. Stand still with feet firmly balanced in one position. Hold your camera level
and take your photos by swinging it around its centre to keep it as close to the start position as possible. Imagine that you are the tripod stand from

Ensure that you have sufficient overlap in the photos. If you have a manual metering mode you may wish to select it to ensure that the exposure on all
of your series of photos remains constant. But don't worry if you don't have it on manual, you'll be amazed at the results in Xara Photo & Graphic
