software for creating panorama pictures

Discussion in 'Digital SLR' started by Crusader Rabbit, May 15, 2005.

  1. Hi guys,

    I know, it's a little off-topic, but being photo enthusiasts I hope you can
    help me.

    Recently, I bought a Nikon D70s (after using a Minolta X500 for years). I am
    now looking for software to automatically create panoramic views from
    multiple pics. I know Photoshop has such a feature but I'm not always
    satisfied with the result. Is there any dedicated software you could
    recommend?

    thanks,

    Bart.

    Autostitch seems competent, and it's free!

    Others swear by this, but it's not...

  5. I've just been using Panorama Maker 3 and I'm quite impressed with it. So
    much so that when my trial runs out I won't have any qualms about paying to
    register it. It's dead easy to use too.
    Unless, anyone can recommend something better? (I have 7 days left..!)

    Regards,
    Craig

    I have been using PTGui, it takes a bit of work but it has given me the
    best results to date.

  7. What is the problem with the Photoshop stitcher?

    I think it is excellent, here is an example of spherical pano stitched
    from six individual photographs, stitched in Photoshop:

    The blends are horrible.

    I personally prefer Photovista. I've tried just about all of them.

    It should be there and is an app worth giving a try. Though it's interface
    is abysmal, it does a decent job at times. I'd also recommend trying
    Autostitch and it's free.

    The demo version is free. What is the limitation, if any?

    jpeg only, I think. It is astoundingly easy to use.

    The demo version is the only version available.
    See http://www.cs.ubc.ca/~mbrown/autostitch/autostitch.html
    for the FAQ regarding limitations.

  14. Thanks everyone for your suggestions, I think I'll just go and try out a
    couple of programs to see which one suits me best.
