    Hello everyone and welcome to July! It is amazing how quickly this year is going by! This month I get to bring you the Photography challenge and we are going to use multiple photos to piece together a single image.

    In my example, I used a series of 8 photos that shows a panoramic view of my backyard. Your layout doesn't have to piece together a panoramic view, this is just one example of how to use multiple photos together to form a single image.

    • You must use at least 2 photos to create a single image.

    If your piecing together isn't obvious, please provide a simple explanation in your credits.

    Here is my example:

    As always, please remember the monthly challenge rules: Your page must contain at least 75% Lilypad product. Your page should be posted to the Lilypad Gallery and then linked to the Challenge Layouts thread so it can be tracked, and to this thread.

    The Lilypad uses a percent system for our challenges; the number of challenges you participate in determines the store discount you will receive at the end of the month:

    2 challenges = 10% off
    4 challenges = 20% off
    6 challenges = 30% off

    If you complete 7 challenges, you will receive a coupon for 30% off, plus you will be entered to win a $50 gift certificate from the Lilypad (new prize starting with the July challenges)! The first seven challenges will be posted on the first of the month; the eighth challenge is the BYOC challenge, which is posted on BYOC release day. Each page counts for one challenge (you cannot use one layout for multiple challenges).

    I'm excited to see what you come up with!

    I love panoramic photos but always forget to make them, even though I have two apps for it on my phone. Thanks for the reminder.

    I really am not sure what you mean by take 2 photos and make one--- do you just mean to have them right next to each?

    What I mean is to take 2 or more pictures, but shift the camera over a bit between each picture. Then put the pictures together on the page, overlapping them where appropriate to make a single image. This lets you make an image wider (or taller) than what your camera can take by itself. Does that make more sense?

    This was quite a challenge. I used a total of 5 photos (4 for the background and one in the front). I used a blending mode but there's still a slight variation in the color of each. Here it is:

    If we have a camera that can take panoramic pictures, can we use that mode rather than piece together 2+ photos?

    The point of the challenge is to piece together the photos, so no, I would like to see what you can come up with. Thanks for checking!

    I took a cell phone photography seminar and one of our assignments was to create a college of photos, but to not attempt to line things up exactly. Perfect for this challenge! I also used two other photos from the same location as my background. And yes, my dear friend in the white shirt moves around a lot.

    here is mine, this was already panoramic which I divided in 3, gave different effects and then put them inside the 2 frames as 2 photos:
