View Full Version : Panorama Stitching Software
I'm trying to find a solution for making high quality panorama's using photo stitching on a Mac. Is anyone out there successfully using any software they could recommend? I'm trying PTMac but it's really complicated I think.
Let me know
I simply use PhotoShop.
I absolutely recommend Panavue Image Assembler...unfortunately it's PC only.
PTGui is terriffic, and you can run it on Virtual PC, according to their site. It handles images that are not exactly lined up very well.
I don't do it myself but just recently I saw some excellent stitched photos that the photographer said were done in Photoshop CS2.
Photoshop CS2 has a "Photomerge" panel that stitches images just fine for a duffer like myself. I agree, some of the other packages are overwhelming unless you really throw yourself into it.
No doubts that various expensive software exist for panoramic stitching.
So let's mention free software :
And stitching is not all the story. Panoramic assembly is not only the digital version of glueing side-to-side two pictures. Even if you rotate the camera around where it should, i.e. around the entrance pupil and nothing else ;-)
Digital image processing allows you to go far beyond and reconstruct any kind of projection
I've tried several and while I agree PTmac is daunting for someone starting it's well worth the effort to learn. FWIW I don't find PTmac any more difficult to learn or use than the 'pc' counterpart PTgui. I also didn't find apps like RealViz Stitcher to be any less complicated or easier - just a lot more expensive. BTW, if you want a mac app that is 'easy' give Calico a try.
I just do it manually in Photoshop.
I just use a panoramic back on my Toyo.
