Step 1: Open Photoshop CS5

I'm using the trial version of Photoshop CS5. Well you can download it on You must have an Adobe ID to download it. Install it and open it. It should look like this:

Step 2: Open Your Panorama

Next, open you (crappy) panorama picture.

Step 3: Fill-in the Blanks!

First, use the Magic Wand tool and select the black part of the picture. Then press the Delete button. Once a dialog box appeared, select "Content-Aware" and press OK. That "Content-Aware" function in CS5 is not present in other versions of Photoshop. Just wait.

Step 4: You're Done!

It's done! Now you can fill out the missing parts!

    horrible job, you can clearly see the edges even in this poor quality.

    It works better if you expand the selection by one pixel before content aware and even then some touchup with the healing tool (content-aware mode of course) is needed.

    the delete key only works when you are on the background layer, otherwise Ctrl+5 brings up the fill (with content-aware) dialogue.

    Also the edges always seem to be messed up so it's good to expand the image 20 pixels on all sides and then crop when done.
