Hi! First time here and first post :) I've recently been in NYC and have taken some panoramas. I usually work with Lightroom for correction as I'm used to it and it's simplicity, so now I want to stich my panos from raw source and keep all the data to then make final editing in LR. But I don't know what is the best way to go, should I color correct in HDR and export in tiff16? Should I use ghost removal or fusion?

Welcome to the forum...

What camera and lens did you use?

Did you use a proper pano head?

Are you using bracketed exposures?

Did you shoot 360 HFOV?

Multirow or single row?

I used a Canon 550d with stock 18-55mm without panohead, all shoots were handheld and no bracketing. There are some 360hfov panos and some shorter, single row all.

If single exposures then use anti-ghost. Fusion relates to bracketed exposures.

Many people would recommend doing RAW conversion before stitching.

What about color correction?

I thought it would be better to load raws directly and mount the panorama before starting to work on image correction.

Use the default settings in APG to start with.

export RAW to TIFF to stitch in APG > Stitch in APG and export as TIFF again > import stitched TIFF into LR for tweaks > export from LR to final JPG

So that way the dynamic range of the originals would be preserved (at least most of it) through all the process?

yes as non-destructive/uncompressed (as JPG gives) from the RAW image by using 16bitt tiff
