REMEMBER, these videos are about Lightroom or Photoshop techniques only and despite what they may infer about a triptych, for the KPS Annual Triptych Competition YOUR TRIPTYCH MUST BE A STORY IN PICTURES, not a collection of similar images and definitely not a single image cut into three.
The triptych below is one that is suitable for KPS, in that it tells a story.
This triptych (below), on the other hand, is not suitable for KPS as it doesn’t tell a story. It is merely a picture of lunch repeated three times.
As lunch, it works perfectly. As a KPS triptych, it fails miserably.
Simply taking a regular photo, cutting it into three bits and putting it back together as in our example below, doesn’t qualify as a KPS triptych either.
It too fails miserably.
Making a triptych is not difficult, particularly if you follow the instructions the videos listed below:

Panoramas or Panoramic Images
Panoramic images by definition have a significantly increased height/width ratio. In general, a panoramic aspect ratio starts at 2:1 and can increase to an even greater width to height ratio, eg. 3.2:1, 4:1.
Prints must adhere to the print and mount conditions as stated in the standard Entry and Size Specifics section above, i.e. maximum mount size 16”x20” or 40cm x 50cm. Projected Images cannot exceed the maximum width of 1920 pixels.
The image immediately below is in the 3:2 ratio which many cameras produce. This is not considered a panoramic image.
A ratio of 2:1 is considered panoramic as are the other images below.
