PSE 2024 panorama resolution loss

Hello all, new to this forum, looking for a solution to my problem.

I'm a longtime user of PSE 14 and often used the panorama stitching functionality.

I now have a new PC build with Windows 11 and on that occasion I'm currently doing the 30 day trial of PSE 2024. Happy to see that this all works much like what I'm used to from PSE 14. However I'm running into a particular problem that, when looking side by side at the finished panorama and one of the input images, the panorama looks distinctly unsharp compared to its input images. I've confirmed this with several panoramas from two different cameras. PSE 14 doesn't do this...

Is this a settings problem, or has the software changed along the way? Most importantly: how do I solve this?

I'm attaching a PNG screenshot of two images looked at in FastStone (but the problem is visible in PSE 2024 itself). The panorama is on the left.

Many thanks for any assistance.

I think it would help to post a screen shot of the enitre program with the two images side by side.

I'm curious what your explanation will be for that request, so here you go, this is my complete screen:

In photoshop elements, when you see the difference. 

Make sure we can see the panel bar on the right, and zoom each image to 100%

Showing just one image is of no use. Just like in my previous example: one image next to the other, showing the layer panel, both images zoomed in to 100%.

I'm having a hard time seeing any difference other than what I mention in the image below. 

Images don't "have to be perfect" to fool the human eye.  Average viewing distance?  About two feet.  Average time someone spends looking at the average image online? 2 to 5 seconds.

A picture hanging up on the wall?  Viewing distance increased to about 6 feet- and even less time is spent looking at it after the first week or two of being on display becaouse "it's allways there."

Maybe someone else can see a difference, but I have a hard time telling any difference.

I've never ever had any issues with any panoramas I've made.   This one below, Near Los Alamos NM was 3 images.2024-02-05_165908.png

Thanks for looking.

Too bad I can't get my PSE 14 installed under Windows 11, and too bad you can't see what I'm seeing all over the image.

I guess I'll look into a different software package.

Before you draw any firm conclusions i'd like to point out the demo images your showing are jpegs, therefore subject to compression which causes all kinds of anomalies.

 

A better comparison might be archived by saving the panos as flattened psd or tiff files from both pse 14 and pse 2014 and then comparing them.

Thanks for your comments, but I've only ever stitched panoramas from jpegs - in PSE 14 it didn't work with raw, TIFF or DNG files.

I'm getting the impression that this forum isn't where Adobe comes to address issues from its customers. Would you know how I can bring my concerns to their attention?

I've got both pse 14 and pse 2024, so i'll see if there's any difference here.

 

I've got plenty of jpegs for panos from cameras that only did jpegs.

Thanks, I'm looking forward to your findings.

In the screenshots I posted above, do you see the difference?
