Hi Christine,

Your welcome! I try to use a the protractor on a tripod or find markers in the subject matter I'm photographing for consistent overlapping.
The PhotoMerge feature in Photoshop makes stiching the images together a breeze.

Thanks so much for the illustrations! They really help visual students understand overlapping by 20% when shooting for a panoramic.
