Errored REPEATEDLY when processing 10 or more photos, unlike Acropano Photo Stitcher and Zoner Photo Studio which both produced a stunning panorama from 15 photos as samples in a short period. TheoreX PhotoStitcher was able to produced a panorama only when I reduced the number of photos to 7.

PhotoStitcher is excellent. I had a problem with an 8 photo panorama that I took hand held knowing it would create problems. In December, 2012, I used Hugin with Autopano-SIFT 2.3 stitcher which produces a circle shape to this panorama. For the life of me, I could not get the control points to solve the problem and I did not have the time to work on the photos. My first effort with PhotoStitcher produced a very acceptable panorama. It needs tweaking but, for me, they all do. The GOTD Activate.exe was effective in licensing the software. My first and eighth photo had an individual who was bent over a spotting scope and then stood up. There were waterside pilings that were close, thus, prone to distortion. PhotoStitcher solved all these problems acceptably. I could not solve these problems using Hugin…because I am not that expert in all the intricacies of the very fine Hugin. Anyone interested in panorama photography should install this product. Giovanni’s and Dottech’s lukewarm review must be because they do not have difficult panoramas to stitch…the key is in the stitching.

I like InPaint so when I saw this, I thought it would be useful in solving a problem I have: I took a panorama of the employees of the company I work for last year. i took 4 photos and ICE was only able to stitch 3 together to make something somewhat useful. Would this be able to create a 4 picture panorama?

I was surprised when this was unable to even stitch two of these photos together. No output at all. Zip, zero, nada. An error message stating that no stitching is possible would be good.

The input method was not convenient as I had to navigate to the folder 4 times and no way to allow for selecting multiple images, something which should be automatic in software such as this.

This may be good for landscape panoramas, but when people are involved, it may be too much for this program. The lack of (what I feel are) basic features is another negative. This does nothing above and beyond what ICE is able to do.

Competition is good as it brings out the best in everyone. I just do not see what this offering brings that isn't already done by other programs.

I found I had to run the program with administrator rights in order to save a stitched result using Windows 8. I find that very irritating when programs are written this way. What if I wasn't the administrator? I normally run my computer as a normal user.

Rarely have this issue come up with other GOTD offerings. Is this a GOTD activation issue or the program vendor (photostitcher) issue?

I shot 2 horizontal rows of 3 images in each, one above the other.
Stitcher left out the last image of both rows, and the resulting image quality was not great.
Zoner made a hash of arranging the images.
PTGui did it perfectly with good image quality.

I took four screen captures with 50% overlaps from this live panning camera site from Stavanger, Norway - http://www.aftenbladet.no/webkamera/livekamera/Strandkaien-og-Skagenkaien-2838057.html - and PhotoStitcher stitched the four pictures flawlessly for a very nice panorama.

Some stunningly fatuous comments on here today.

If you want to make a panorama out of images *taken for the purposes of creating a panorama* then this works fine. If you don't set out to create a panorama in the first place, then how that's the fault of the software -- this or any other stitch software -- is your own fault: what you feed in is what you get out, doesn't matter whether it's this or Microsoft's ICE or excellent commercial stuff like Arcsoft.

Expecting a 'panorama maker' to produce a satisfying result with images which weren't shot with overlapping in the first place is as daft as setting out to paint a canvas without a brush and wondering er, um, why isn't it working out for me???? Sheesh. Some people, sometimes. . .

Hi, I first came across the idea of "stitching" images in earlier, but already sophisticated enough Photoshops (not sure if that was actually called "stitching" then..) I reckon that to people working with photo/image/art Programs a lot, and dealing with layers, objects, text that final Project might consist of - "stitching" is more or less the same as "merging", except when we merge various layers we deal more with things "piled up" on top of another, than alongside.. Here, after we are happy and ready to merge - we then discover (more than not) little imperfections, or "odd-nesses" of end product that have to be further corrected manually..

I imagine that Programs dealing solely with "stitching" will always ask to leave a margin (overlapping margin) on which the merging must occur (here only two layers "stitched" to one another horizontally or vertically) and the whole effort lies in making these margins so "tiny" that effect of two/more images (usually photos, and to be more specific - panoramic photos) merged together - look "uncanny"..
Some Programs perform this task better, and what's more better automatically(!), some leave plenty to get it right after first attempt.
Panoramic stitching can naturally be just a plugin in some Programs, but Software specializing in performing that one task (only) and..commercially - should perfect this skill to maximum!

TeoreX normally comes with decent and simple to operate Tools worth keeping handy, and free (today) PhotoStitcher might be one of those Tools. The proof is always in a pudding.., depending how well this Software stands out in similar (crowded) Field - might decide whether one would find it indispensable and worth every proverbial penny.

Sorry for not having enough time to test PhotoStitcher 1.2 thoroughly, on this occasion I am truly grateful to Fubar testing it with proper approach and understanding (on the day, sleeves up, props ready, hands on:) and sharing His findings with the rest of us, sterling job!

Thanks GAOTD and TeoreX for this Tool. Hope it (yet) strikes that unexpected "wow" factor when put through it's paces well and proper. Stitching Panoramic pictures specifically is not something I personaly deal with on daily bases.

Does anyone know if this will work with camera RAW? What image formats does it support, and which ones can it output to? I'd assume it does JPG, but I find working with JPG is often less than ideal.

Program works well, does a good job of stitching but does not allow saving of the final product. This function requires the registered version and no serial is included with the GOTD version.

I was actually looking forward to this program. I usually hand-stitch photos in Photoshop (by far the best, most accurate method), but thought this would be helpful for smaller, less important jobs. I was wrong. I threw four photos at it to stitch together and it crashes on me every time. I haven't seen it even do anything.

Pity, I thought it had potential. Thankfully a lot of you guys here have listed some free versions I'll try.

I would like to try this, hoping the registration process is better than yesterday's (still waiting on registration after submitting email address). Question for the experts, can I stitch random photos of the same person together, or it must have in the same elements in each photo?

This program did a wonderful job of stitching some cherished photos of mine. But when I went to save the stitched photo, the program told me that it needs to be registered. I unzipped ALL the files and then double clicked the "activate" application, but nothing seemed to happen. What can I be doing wrong?

If there are FREE alternatives out there supporting the creation of a panorama from pictures with no overlap, I can't see why I should be happy with this tool worth 20 bucks which doesn't support that feature....as simple as that!!

I have made excellent panorama pictures using the Microsoft ICE freeware. The latest version is absolutely fantastic.
You just tell it which photos to stitch and irrespective of orientation it will stitch them together even rejecting pictures which don't fit.
I would gladly pay for this software but its free!

Default window size does not quite fit into a 1026 x 600 pixel screen of a netbook, and will not resize smaller. It is still barely useable.

This was previously pointed out for an earlier version released here on GOTD, but apparently has still not been addressed.

#12, You don't like it because it doesn't support creating a panorama from pictures with no overlap? I guess I should complain that it doesn't use the new RPM instruction set (Read Programmer's Mind). The math that stands behind this and many other products requires that there be some overlap between images to establish how the images are to be arranged in the panorama.

I've used similar packages and found most do a good job at creating a single scene from multiple overlapping images with no trouble. I've not used this package, but all such packages must have some overlap between images to identify how to stitch the scenes together.

I'm sure this package does a good job, though I'm surprised at the "no undo" comments. This is a basic feature that should be present.

Their program "Inpaint" is great, so I expect this to be also good, but no 'undo' button? That's a shame. Also, if the stitching doesn't go well, we should have the option to choose several points to help align the composite.

Thanks GAOTD and TeoreX

Update: Zoner was comparable to PhotoStitcher, more manual intervention was required although it did auto-crop the final result. Zoner did better on brightness and perspective.

Pretty good software for NOOBS only, since it cannot support images with no overlap into a panorama.

20$??

@Howard (currently #6) - try Photoscape, it should work without a problem and not try to find simmilarity or overlap between unrelated images.

Clean and simple installation and activation. I didn't have images to stitch together, so I gave it a fairly hard test. I took an existing panorama, cropped it into 3 fairly overlapping sections of different sizes. The first 2 I rotated a fair amount, brightened one and darkened the other, then cropped them again to deal with the borders generated by the rotation. The third, I changed the perspective. Microsoft Photo Gallery took a long time and finally generated a black rectangle with the wrong aspect ratio, portrait instead of landscape. I didn't test MS ICE. Teorex PhotoStitcher was fast. The final result had a slightly squashed perspective, no doubt due to the 3rd section, but was otherwise quite good. The result panorama was simple to crop within Teorex, several output formats and options available. People having problems may not have enough overlap. Recommended.

I usually complain about another type of photo "whatever" software being offered each week, but this particular photo software looks somewhat interesting! Also, the various photo-type software being offered below, looks good as well!

Downloaded and installed, no problems.
Tested with six shots taken in Lisbon years ago, just loaded all photos from their directory and pressed play button,slight pause and quite a reasonable result. The output would need cropping to give acceptable result, there is slight misalignment, but is comparable with previous stitching done by software supplied with the camera.
I'd give it 8 out of 10.
