Well, I’ve been toying with this for months and finally bit the bullet. Lightroom 6 looked pretty good with a really nice stitching feature and I’ve wanted to get access to the newer and improved content aware fill, so I figured what the heck. I can always go back by purchasing the stand alone Lightroom 6 and dropping back to Photoshop CS5 if I decide it’s not worth while.
So my first use of it was to take a group of 8 images that I shot previously just for stitching (prescient, or more likely goading) and to run the very simple stitching facility.

Here is a pointer to the 1920 wide version in my gallery:
I’m pretty satisfied with that result after only a few clicks …
So far I am pretty impressed with CC for Photographers …
