My software came with the camera (a Canon A20) and does a really good job). Do you have a digital camera, did you get a CD of software with it?

Otherwise, where's what I've found:

Panavue (shareware)

I have found that the stich capability of Photoshop Elements (obviously not free!) are far superior to the abilities of the software that came with my A70 camera, FWIW.

I've got a Minolta Dimage G400, and the only program that came with it is Dimage Viewer.

As you say is Photoshop Elements not free.
And Panavue is Shareware.

So I wounder if there is a freeware program.

Thanks for the help so far.

I don't claim to be an expert, but I've done a brief search, and any stitch program I've seen that was any good wasn't free!

I did a bit more digging and came up with the following...

PANORAMA TOOLS (website)
http://www.all-in-one.ee/~dersch/
Host site for: PTStitcher, High quality, simple to use, all format stitching software; Panorama Tools, Photoshop plug-in for panorama creation, editing and remapping; PTViewer, High quality spherical viewer, Standalone and java versions for many

I have no idea if the above is any good -- you'll have have to try and see.

I'll second the Panorama Tools suggestion. IMHO it's better than many other shareware & commercial tools.

Autostitch can produce impressive results if you're lucky. However if your not so lucky, the stoneage user interface combined with totally automatic operation and hardly any instructions at all will soon make you pull your hair. Therefore I only wish I had moved forward to PTGui sooner, which is well worth its 70€ price tag, if only to save the rest of my hair.

I tried AutoStitch, but like micromax meant it is too automated. I use PhotoManager (of course) and you can do it all manually. About 10 pictures in 5 minutes. It does not only stitch, but also has a desktop wide (multi monitor) cyclorama (panorama) viewer. See Examples and download PhotoManager from www.caelektronics.nl .

Lately i'm stitching panoramas with AutoPanoPro, it uses Autostitch technology, but with more options, pretty straightforward.
