Posted a couple of shots on Facebook, don't know if those links will work here, but I'll try. These were done by the previous version of the software.

WWII Memorial in DC (which it stitched together perfectly so far as I can tell)


And this is three shots stitched together of the street from my front porch while it was snowing at 11pm, without a tripod, no less! :) Not AS perfect, there's a post that's a bit glitchy, but for free, I'm not going to complain! LOVE this program.

I downloaded and installed the prior version the last time they offered it. Have been nothing but amazed at how well it worked and how easy it was. Was incredibly impressed with the results. So downloaded and installed the new version without hesitation.

Microsoft's free ICE works very well and I recommend giving it a try

I really like this offering. I took photographs of my garden in sequence and the resulting screen offering was of good quality but did not show the full range of the photoshots shots that I had taken. However my wife liked the restricted view that was shown on the screen and asked me to send it to her laptop. I therefore saved the screens curtailed offering to my desktop and then opened it, to my amazement the Jpeg picture that assailed my eyes was the full area that my individual pictures had covered. I was a law lecturer and I am still coming to grips with the intricacies of the computer so maybe I missed something in translation but if I knew how I would have posted this picture with these comments.

Nowadays compact cameras have built-in panorama feature where you pan the camera while taking the shot. It will produce a nice panoramic photo.
Software like this is at best, a lousy compromise.
If you want a wide scenic view, then use a proper wide angle lens on a camera with a high megapixel sensor and preferably on a tripod.

Thank you Karl for not stitching a pizza.

Mmm - I am having the same trouble as #1 kiwi1960 - I navigate to folder, add images, choose my distortion, click to start the stitch process, it works away for a few moments then crashes. I have tried a number of times on different images and done an uninstall and reinstall but no better

The menu items (drop down lists and such) are very hard to read, it has almost no contrast. Light gray on dark gray, how can we read it??!!
And I could not find a way to change these colors...!!!

Have windows 7 Home Premium.

Addendum to #3

The examples are fake.


This is a normal photo, where the white frames (they should be meant as the photos to produce the stich) are copied into the existing photo.

This is the BEST FREE stitcher I know of.
I use it all the time and it has updates. Very good software.

kiwi1960, your comment #1 is actually very useful, because when I read "you can stitch multiple photos into a picturesque panoramic image" I don't know why I understood exactly the same thing as you! By reading your comment I realised that what this software is meant to do is actually much more interesting!

Perhaps the idiots are no less than two, but I suspect there will be many more around, so your comment (+amendment) is more than welcome! :D

#2, kiwi1960: Don't feel bad, many of us can be idiots even when we're not tired ;-)

I prefer Hugin or MS Image Composite Editor:

* both Hugin and ICE are freeware
* this lacks an auto-crop feature
* The progress bar is really unhelpful here. It's just a linear spinner. Hugin's progress is very easy to track, and even ICE shows actual percentage for each step.
* It feels really slow and it hogs up all resources while stitching. ICE takes a while as well, but Hugin is really fast.
* It asks for the projection before it even starts stitching. ICE makes an intelligent guess, and so does Hugin. Hugin has a lot more projection options. ICE has spherical and cylindrical only. This has a few, but it seems to lack vertical-type projections.
* It just flat out crashed during my second test. I guess it's because I chose the planar projection for a panorama that's wider than 180 degrees.
* Hugin lets you set up positive and negative masks for each image, meaning you won't end up having the same tourist in two places or someone important left out.
* ICE supports video panoramas with positive per-frame masks (masks for image panoramas are strangely missing)
* Where others flat out give up, produce parallax effect, or just for an artistic effect, Hugin still lets you set up control points manually.

As far as ease of use is concerned, the built-in panorama capabilities of the camera I use flat out win. You know instantly if you need to take another scan, you don't have to ensure overlap while shooting, the parallax effects are less pronounced, and it's easier on the memory if that's what you're worried about. The resulting resolution is sub-par, but I guess other cameras don't have that issue (feature?).

Installed and registered without problems on a Win 8.1 Pro 64 bit system.

A (Russian) company without name and address, focusing on photo manipulation and removing unwanted objects, regularly participating here with good products.

My comment for version 1.5 (January 21st) is still valid:

This program has a serious flaw. Panorama means adding several pictures to a combined image. That said, the program should always open the last directory. But it does always return to the default picture directory. Absolute no-go! You have every time, you want to add something to search the directory structure to find your pictures again. In my case : D:>Photo>2008>10>13 …

And then… you should be able to save the photo selection for further operations. No, you have to add all the photos every time again.

Okay, once added the photo, you choose the distortion – if you know what this means. Flat, cylindric, fish-eye. The rest is done automatically.

This works for simple tasks, but is not sufficient for a really good result. One should be able to define the control points by hand, define an average brightness and much more.

A simple photostitcher with an absolutely unsufficient interface…

I have made a sample, so you can see it for yourself:


The examples on their side are carefully selected to produce a good result.
Uninstalled via reboot.

Sadly, I misunderstood what this actually was, I thought it was for making a collage.... no wonder the photos I selected did not work. OK, my bad... but I'll take some photos in the morning, a 360 degree panorama of a local scenic spot and see what this can do.

Please don't base your opinion on my first post, at times, when I am tired, I can be an idiot. :)

Downloaded, installed to D drive, always good.... and registered without a glitch...

Till I started using it. I was able to add some really old photos from my village which I thought would be nice to post on our facebook community page... then... I have yet to actually see any result of the stitching... second time, the program crashed....

I'll keep going with this but not holding out much hope. :( If I ever see a result, I'll rate it... but not till then.

Thanks to the author, and to GAWOTD for this... sorry I can't rate it, YET.
