Microsoft Image Composite Editor is far superior than any other.
It always works fine.

Another possible use of this program is when photocoping a page that is larger than the photocopier area such as a map. You could photocopy parts of it as photos and join them together. using PhotoStitcher.

I have been having the same problem of "A required privilege not held bu the user" for several GAOTDs now. So I have missed many useful free software I could have used/explored. I tried to " Run As Administrator" it didn't help. Double checked if I already had an older version installed in case it wouldn't allow a newer installation and I didn't find any.
I hope someone would enlighten us on this problem.

I had an older version installed so I removed it. Then I followed the installation instructions to the t, but the program didn't install, didn't set the desktop icon, it is nowhere on my system. So I did the installation again. Still not there. Oh well.
Next time, I will not remove a previous version, because now I am without it completely.

Nice comparison of Photo Stitcher to Microsoft ICE except for one small detail.
Microsoft ICE requires Windows 7 or better where Photo Stitcher requires Windows XP or better. Bottom line, If you are not running Microsoft Windows 7 or better than Photo Stitcher will work for you.
Microsoft forgot that some customers still use XP.

Ray Jones: Good point, Ray. Well made. PhotoStitcher is indeed ideal for those with the XP OS (of whom there are many: my wife's laptop is on XP and works flawlessly, regardless of all the nay-sayers out there.) On which basis then, today's giveaway is definitely recommended to them. And, er, to my missus.

Ray Jones, MS ICE works fine in Vista SP2 too! It is NOT currently Windows 7 or better!

MS website clearly states at https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/research/product/computational-photography-applications/image-composite-editor/#system-requirements :

"Image Composite Editor works with 32- or 64-bit versions of Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7, or Windows Vista SP2."

Ray Jones, unfortunately MS didn't forget. They're doing everything they can think of in order to shoehorn everybody into later OS versions. (Win7 is decent if you're cautious as to which monthly updates you install, but they're trying like crazy to move everybody to Win10 with all its built in spyware uh, "telemetry.")

This is the 2nd time I have run into this with GAOD Pgms. " A required privilege not held by the user"
I tried running as administrator and same issue. I have had no problems with any other programs I have installed. Just with GAOD. So can't install. Too bad seems like a useful soft.

In keeping with so much that's depressing about trendiness in contemporary software, PhotoStitcher's GUI is determinedly funereal; users with even a slight impairment of visual acuity aren't going to be comfortable with the predominantly gray-on-black toolbar, even if the icons can be illuminated during work flow. Style has been put before substance, and substance is the loser.

By contrast, the GUI of Microsoft research Labs' Image Compositing Editor (ICE), fashionably dark though it may be, is cleverly thought out with clearly printed white-on-black text rather than icons. PhotoStitcher obviously aims for a minimalist display, so it's bizarre that so many functions are duplicated with a double helping of 'Help', 'About', 'and 'Auto Complete'. Although unnecessary icons relieve PhotoStitcher's gloom, no such confusing redundancy exists in the ICE GUI.

To add a selection of images to PhotoStitcher for merging in the program, click on the (thankfully) white plus icon to import. Drag 'n drop doesn't work particularly well; on test, PhotoStitcher failed to recognise alphanumeric file names and assembled the images out of sequence, whereas using the add button resulted in correct assembly. ICE managed drag 'n drop without muddle.

I dropped four Out Of Camera 8Mb per image Nikon shots into PhotoStitcher's black maw and, also, into ICE's rather more welcoming arms, mindful of the reality that especially where panoramic software is concerned, the end result is only as good as the source material. Don't expect miracles from low-res mobile phone shots.

PhotoStitcher's GUI stacked images vertically, counter-intuitive for any panorama software. ICE, by contrast, presented the images in lateral display. ICE also displayed image file names; PhotoStitcher didn't. ICE further allows the user to sort by file name or sort by EXIF. PhotoStitcher. . . doesn't. The result is that it's impossible, in PhotoStitcher, to see at a glance if images are correctly sequenced. The software itself can be left to disentangle the problem but as that only lengthens the time it spends in image processing, it's best to correctly sequence the images from the get-go.

I clicked on PhotoStitcher's now-illuminated green 'Stitch', chose 'Panorama' from the Mode options and changed 'Projection' from its default, and inexplicable, 'Spherical' to 'Mercator.' I'm well used to working with panoramic images but others may not be. The Help tutorial 'How to Stitch Photos to Panorama' doesn't, er, help with any of the terminology.

ICE at image import stage and before processing commences likewise offers a variety of options, though the range is considerably more comprehensive, including auto-detect (of camera motion), 'Simple Panorama' and 'Structured Panorama'. This latter yields a plethora of individual fine-tuning controls for a complex, stylised output which may or may not be required: it's the user's choice. 'PhotoStitcher' seemingly has no ambitions to similar flexibility.

Where ICE really triumphs though is in its 'Back' facility, because if you've made a mistake in processing or wish to change your mind before final image output, then you can safely back-track. PhotoStitcher offers no such 'Back' option. That's a killer omission.

Stitching time for the 32Mb total of four OOC images took twice as long with PhotoStitcher as it did with ICE. Both programs offer zoom controls, essential at this stage when image assessment is so crucial. Sadly, PhotoStitcher's is dreadful, an all-or-almost-nothing approach that ICE's incremental slider control puts to shame.

Inevitably, the usual black spoilers occurred in the panoramic image, signifying loss of visual information in alignment processing at the compositing stage. PhotoStitcher's Help tutorial is light on details here, but it's easy to manually adjust the proposed crop area using the handles provided, and preferable to the Auto Crop offered in the Edit options menu. ICE offers a similar choice.

I used PhotoStitcher's little pouring jug icon to Auto Complete. Teorex originally majored on content-aware software like InPaint, so it's handy that the algorithm is incorporated here. However: Microsoft Research Labs has moved firmly into Teorex's territory, so ICE now offers the same facility. As before, the difference in performance was noticeable: PhotoStitcher again took twice as long -- if not longer -- than ICE to auto complete. Comparison of the PhotoStitcher and ICE panoramas showed that in both cases, pixel proximity manipulation worked well.

(NOTE: this test was of the ability of both programs to create a horizontal panorama of a lake and surrounding mountains. The broad brush Auto complete in both had to contend only with upper and lower image areas of visual constancy -- sky, and water -- and right /left marginal areas of forested terrain. Auto Complete is OK as far as it goes, but that's actually not very far: it should never be used to in-fill spoilers adjacent to image areas populated with multiple, varying elements.)

Conclusion: source materials for both PhotoStitcher and ICE were jpeg images which by their very nature suffer quality loss when manipulated. Visually, this isn't readily apparent, but heavy manipulation, as in the case of panorama making, will likely produce noticeable degradation. Panorama software, then, needs to handle the compositing process with the utmost delicacy.

Results (technical):
ICE panorama, 16,806 x 4389 dimensions, file size: 51.5 Mb; PhotoStitcher panorama, 16,388 x 4335 dimensions, file size: 16.8Mb.
Results (visual): the ICE panorama was very obviously superior to the PhotoStitcher panorama, which suffered noticeable quality loss in image definition and contrast.

Verdict: In terms of usability, processing power, speed of performance and quality of output, the always-free Microsoft ICE comprehensively trounced the $20 PhotoStitcher.

Thanks, GOTD, and thanks, Teorex. I wish PhotoStitcher well, because healthy competition is good for every computer user, but on the basis of this test of a 4-shot horizontal panorama, PhotoStitcher has a heck of a lot of catching up to do before it can credibly compete with Microsoft's outstanding freeware.

Harry Mangurian: Hi. I'll have to distinguish between work and play here. Workwise, panoramic output is always post-processed by our Art Department's resident Van Goghs in ways I never fathom (ah, the joys of a large advertising agency.) Stuff may finish up online but that'll be down to the client: their money, their ad, their artwork. Sorry, then, but I can't help you in that regard: I myself Adobe post-process as a home user, but never put anything of mine out there.

Incidentally: I use RAW source images, not jpegs, for panorama construction; jpegs were used only for processing speed today and because though ICE handles RAW, PhotoStitcher seems not to. Post processing needs all the information it can get, hence why ICE's substantial jpeg output is better than PhotoStitcher's smaller output. This is particularly relevant where a user hasn't the time, or the computing power, or even the inclination to shoot in RAW in the first place. As for onscreen viewing, well, I guess any will do: FastStone, Irfanview, XNview, etc et al.

Frank Russo: Both Teorex's PhotoStitcher and Microsoft Research Labs' ICE incorporate a content aware algorithm which, though broad brush, is nevertheless exceptionally useful in replacing black (spoilt) image areas that have occurred during alignment processing.

Prior to the incorporation of this facility, panorama makers (as they were known) were dogged by the alignment problem, because the only way to lose the spoilers was to crop them out. With a series of four or five images, the inevitable result was a shrinkage of the panorama, with much in the way of image content having to be junked in order to get rid of the non-image content. The finished panorama was thus much narrower than hoped for.

I found both Teorex's and Microsoft's product to be good at sparing the user this kind of headache. If University of Columbia is incorporating the same or similar alogorithm, then fine. If its alignment process is so good that no black (spoilt) image areas appear, then that's even better -- though I'd suggest that that's verging on the alchemic: panned shots, unless made by a tripod-mounted camera, are never, ever going to align; handheld sequential photography -- and for most people, it will be handheld -- magnifies even the slightest variation in a lens' field of view.

Unfortunately, nothing in the link speaks to Columbia's work in this regard, so there seems to be no basis for thinking that a like-for-like basis exists here. Hopefully, there is, because the last thing anyone wants of panoramic software these days is that it forces the user into accepting images that are more letterbox than widescreen.

Hi Mike R,
Yes, you are certainly correct.

Shots I took to stitch together were done on a tripod.
I expected to discover handheld shots would be problematic for autostitch or most programs for that matter.

I have had ICE installed on my system for a while now.
Without question it is commercial quality.

However, for simplicity I will use autostitch simply because it is free, does a good enough job and is easy to use.

As for the top and bottom black "noise"... Yes, got them. Kinda expected to see them. The cropping didn't really remove much. I didn't find it objectionable.

It was not my intention to compare programs exactly.
Microsoft can afford to make commercial programs free with all their money...

( On an unrelated note, I' love to know where you get all this review energy! : )

Hi James Stone,
It doesn't appear that GAOTD supports photos directly & I don't have a dropbox setup for such an occasion.
However, suffice it to say I have used it to create a scenic panorama and it looks terrific !

It would appear that I have inadvertently created a who's best contest : ) Perhaps that's a good thing.

My intention was simply to point out: easy and works great.

Generally programs only check to see if they are registered ONLY when they are first opened.

The best way to install today's program is to run the setup but do NOT allow it to finish.
Now run the Activate program.
Let the setup program finish.

This way the program opens as registered.

Given the previous post, I downloaded, setup - UNCHECKED launch - then hit the activation icon on the unzipped file, but was taken to the standard GOTD activated page ONLY.
AFTER that, launched the program, but-
NO licence key and NO indication (that I can find) that the software has been registered.
How can I confirm the software HAS been registered?
Thanks for any help.
I've used the previous version in the past and am looking forward to using 2.0.

The Read Me file within the download package of today's package may prove unhelpful to some. The text requests that setup.exe be run to install the software and then, when installation is complete, the activation executable.

The text does not say that on installation, the 'Finish' screen's default status is a pre-checked launch option, the effect of which will be to open PhotoStitcher, as a result of which the activation executable will merely open a link to a confirmation screen from GOTD, not from the developer.

In other words: all that's been 'activated' is an unlicensed copy.

I have been compelled to help a friend this morning who has spent some considerable time preparing a panorama, only for her to finish up with a nag screen saying that only a registered copy of PhotoStitcher allows the saving of a completed panorama. She is required to input a valid license key. She does not have a valid license key.

It would seem that her decision to allow PhotoStitcher to launch and run by default after install but before activation has resulted in the considerable waste of her time and mine. I have advised her to uninstall as re-booting her computer has achieved nothing.

MikeR, I did not have any trouble at all.
I installed it and ran the program:

After closing the program and let Activate do his work, the program was OK:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/zb6tx1eq0haf96h/NaActivate.png
It' is certainly true, that there will be a screen, that's say: Activated. But that a site of GOTD.
And that's confusing, because nothing(program) is activated at that time.

Reply   |   Comment by Ootje  –  2 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+10)

Ootje: thanks for that. The problem seems to be -- from what I can make of it -- that there's no mention in the Read Me file that the program should NOT be allowed to launch after installation.

I've had no trouble with it, incidentally, but then I ran the install exe, didn't allow PhotoStitcher to launch, and then ran activate. When I opened the program, bingo: it was licensed / registered, because it didn't ask for a license key.

I'm now testing PhotoStitcher against its arch competitor, Microsoft's free (and outstanding) ICE.

I've downloaded this one the last two times they've had it. Found that for most of my needs this has done an amazing job of splicing together multiple photos with very little effort. Here's one I did in D.C. when I went a few years back. I think I merged three shots together at the WWII memorial to get this. https://scontent-iad3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t31.0-8/10333566_4126601900817_8935447357005385521_o.jpg?oh=a6f4f8030200204eda513e86c47559d5&oe=595042DF

Karel, Why don't you TRY the software out. Then come back and write a comparative review. That's what GAOTD is all about. Having the ability of testing and reviewing these for the company that's offering this for a day.

Harry, thank you for your kind response. I do understand what GOTD is about. I am just too busy today, so I tried to ask someone who may know the differences already. Sorry if I offended you.

Hello Karel, I'm sorry someone treated you rudely. I apologize on Harry's behalf. I'm sure Harry's intent was different than what was said. We ALL say things without thinking it through and then wish we had the words back. Sometimes it's just the "tone" of what we say. I have been guilty more than most. I'm sure if Harry had thought for a moment, he would have realized that not everyone that visits this site has the luxury of extra time to test software for comparison. They have jobs to go to, children to care for, etc., etc. Whereas, many others DO have lots of free time on their hands because they may be retired, or unemployed, etc. I believe it's entirely appropriate to ask your question. In all likelihood, someone HAS used both programs and may be happy to share their experience with others. I for one, would love to hear the experience of someone else, if they have knowledge of both programs.
Note: Over the years I have heard others express comments similar to what Harry had to say this morning and I thought it should be addressed. (No offense intended to you Harry). -- Mister Lee

dark theme totally ruins a program for me.
you want to make it harder to see menu and control? why?
at least the menu text and status is not tiny so congratulations on decent DPI adjustment!

the popup when you first start should have option to get rid of the dark theme
you can tell how many people use it
and judge for yourself if you want to continue dark theme
as default and apparently the only option.
