    Stitching software

    This is by no means an exhaustive list of panorama stitching software packages.

    It is instead, a list of software that I tried at one time or another, or have come in contact with by the recommendation of others.

    The notes come from the publisher's websites and the prices are current as of January of 2008.

    Some releases are free, some commercial. Some of them work on multiple platforms others don't, so buyer beware.

    Consult the websites for availability and latest prices.

    Click the table image below to see the complete list.

      Thank you for the exhaustive list. I've actually tried a couple of those programs.

      Adobe Photoshop CS3 (obviously) and find it does a wonderful job. Couldn't say that about CS2.

      Ptgui is a program that also does a wonderful job. I have a friend who uses it exclusively; and the panos he makes are remarkable.

      I also tried the free program autostitch. IMHO, you get what you pay for with this program. Yes, it did a great job stitching the pano together. It also gave me a final file size of about 200 kb. I couldn't even print it. To be fair, it might have been me and my infamous ability to get it wrong. Too late, I deleted it from the computer after a couple of trials.

    Considering software
    by memphishooter
    I am wondering what is the best software I can get and get into to work on my pictures after the fact? I end up shooting skin colors that are a challenge to make look good, and there are other issues to deal with. Is Photoshop CS3 my only good option here, is there less expensive, equally useful software...

    Panorama software options
    by Frank Lopes
    I've tried almost a dozen software packages that create panoramas. Most of the time, I found them to be clunky to use, expensive to purchase and most times both.

    I came across Panorama Composer by accident and I'm very impressed with its simplicity, price and speed.

    Ads in commercial software
    by Doug Nelson
    I'd like to get some opinions. I recently installed a commercial software app (not shareware) that periodically (a couple of times a week or more) will pop up a window within its workspace promoting other things to buy from that same vendor. It's not big, probably only about 10% of the workspace, and...
    Ads don't bother me.
    Ads bother me, but I'd still use the software.
    Ads bother me a lot, and I'd use the software less, or buy an alternative.
    I like ads. They provide valuable information.

    Why is OpenSource software so ugly?
    by Doug Nelson
    I had to use gparted to install Vista this weekend, and I was reminded of my primary objection to Linux: all the interfaces and apps are ugly. Mishmashed fonts, ill-fitting UI features, and no concious attempt at any sort of unified standard.

    Even the apps offered as counter-examples...

    Warping/distortion software search
    by Repairman
    Just had an urgent packaging shot job land on my desk. I have to apply original A/W Illustrator graphics to a photograph of a yoghurt pot/tub. The A/W is created in a distorted form (arc shaped) so that when wrapped around a plastic pot (imagine the central portion of a cone) all the text and graphics...
