I'm using a trial version of PF 3.1
It's amazing how it puts together 17 images of a panorama of the Alps as I see it from my home.
I save the cropped image as *.bmp and would like to bring in additional things (names of the summits etc).
But Photoshop will not open the image.
The same is true with *.jpf and *.tif. I get an error message about error with the "fileformatmodul-interface" or problems with the "the interpretation of the "JPEG-Data".
The file is 30154 x 1519 pixles and 34 MP in JPEG and 134 MB in BMP or TIF.
What am I doing wrong?
Thank you in advance for helping.

You have encountered a fundamental limit in Photoshop. The maximum image width or height in Photoshop is 30000 pixels. Your image exceeds the Photoshop limit because its width is 30154 pixels.
I do not know why Photoshop displays the error message you described rather than telling you that you have exceeded the limit. I also receive that strange error message when I try to open an image larger than 30000 pixels in Photoshop.
Photoshop does display a correct error message ("An integer between 1 and 30000 is required") when you try to create a new image using the New command (File menu) and specify a width or height that is too large.
In order to process your panorama in Photoshop, you will have to resize it to a width that is 30000 or less.
I hope this helps!

What is the recommended workflow starting with raw images in photoshop using Panorama Factory to stitch the images and modifying them in photoshop after stitching?

Here's one sequence you might follow to start with raw images and modify the stitched image in Photoshop.
NOTE: If you wish to convert the final image to a VR format (e.g. QuickTime, IVR or PTViewer), you should follow the instructions given on the web page How to modify the final image in photoshop when you reach step 3 given above.
- Convert the raw images.
Note: You must start by converting the images to one of the image formats that The Panorama Factory accepts (it does not currently accept raw images).
- You may be able to perform this conversion in Photoshop or you may need to use a special program supplied with your digital camera (e.g. Canon's Raw Image Converter.
- We recommend using a lossless format such as BMP, TIFF or PNG.
- You may save your images with 24 bits per pixel (8 bits per channel) or 48 bits per pixel (16 bits per channel). The Panorama Factory accepts both formats.
- Save each image in a different file, numbering the images from left to right, e.g. image_1.tiff, image_2.tiff, ....
- Run The Panorama Factory to stitch the images.
- You may stitch with either the Wizard or the Classic Interface.
- Save the final image using the Save current image as.... command.
- We recommend you save the image in the same format as you chose in step 1.
- If you are using 48 bits per pixel (16 bits per channel), be sure to select Save 48-bit pixels (16 bits per channel) on the TIFF settings dialog box or the PNG settings dialog box.
- Open the final image in Photoshop for post processing.
