View Full Version : Pano Software

07-12-2010, 08:36 AM
Even though I've been into Photography for the past few decades, and digital since 1997, I have not done a lot of pano work (maybe twice in the past 10 years).

A long story short, I'm looking for decent stand-alone pano stitch software.

Any recomendatons?

ICE from Microsoft:

Hugin is another one with more options although when I used it I ended up with about 5 program files on my desktop:

Microsoft ICE every time especially the new version.

I'm another Hugin user. It works well for me - usually, just accepting all the auto defaults produces a nice result.

Also the price (free download!) is very good :)

Thanks all.

ICE it is. Of the 34,000 digital and 3,200 (scanned) film shots in the archives only 5 (digital) are panoramas, and it was so long ago I don't even remember what software I used...:o

The price is right as well. :)

Seems to work well (and easy). A great program, and the price is spot-on.

This is Crystal Springs Reservior Dam... Shot quickly while dodging cars and bikes...

Next time I will pay closer attention to the exposures...:D

PTGui is panoramic stitching software for Windows and Mac OSX. Originally developed as a Graphical User Interface for Panorama Tools (hence the name), PTGui now is a full featured photo stitching application
