You cant really. The fish-eye lens so distorts the image that you dont have edges that match up. You MIGHT be able to do it by applying a fish eye  filter in photoshop, but you'll get weird effects in the middle of the image where you had to interpolate.

What I mean to ask is, for example, I have 3 images of a bridge, which takenleft, right and centre. If it is joint, we get full image, but I'm not sure about correct possion of joining points. There is an option to join automaticaly / Manual. I do not know how to do it. What is the way ?

You cant really with fish eye images because when the image was brought into the camera it was already severely distorted.

Do you mean that you have 3 regular photos of this bridge, and you want to put them all together to make a panoramic view of the bridge? If as your initial question implied each of the pictures have already been distorted by a fish-eye lense, then as Weed said, it may not be possible. However, if your pictures are not distorted you should be able to use File>Automate>Photomerge to connect the pictures. I did it just a few days ago, and it was pretty much self-explanatory.

why am i the only one in the world without a "photomerge" option.  people use it all over the web in tutorials like it comes free with breakfast cereal but i have PS 7 and no photomerge tool.

Oh, by the way, kovaisaba, I'd suggest you let it try to arrange the images automatically, if it can't it will then let you arrange them yourself--you get a nice big window where you can move your pieces around. You can also keep the layers so you can modify it once they're all in one file if you need to.

Thank you for the points kovaisaba! Could you please offer some feedback as to if my suggestion actually worked and why you graded it with a B?
I hope I was a help.
