Hello everyone! Over the holidays I decided to put up a new virtual tour of Banff.

Photo Stitching Software – The Gift for All Readers

January 14th, 2009

Hi, I want to dedicate my first post of 2009 to Panoramic Photography software or as it is more commonly called Photo Stitching software. Now as it’s a New Year and I’m still in the spirit of giving I wanted to give all you readers out there a gift. So I hope this will inspire all you budding photographers or photography enthusiasts and hobbyists to create your very own 180° or 360° degree panoramas.

I know a lot of you have asked that question, “how can I create a panorama” or “what software do I need to make a panoramic photograph” and, the more you dig in to find the answers the more you find yourself with more questions like, “how can I create a 360 x 360 cylindrical panorama” etc.

So, by now you have probably guessed that your gift is ….. drum roll please ….. yes, a free and complete Panorama Photo Stitching software program. Yes, it’s absolutely free, no catches, obligations or anything else. Oh, and no it’s not some beta version, low end stitching software that only works on one platform. No this is a professional, full working cross-platform photo stitcher that works on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux. You can view Sample QuickTime generated panoramic here or look at Photo Stitching screen shots.

This software has been developed by numerous photographers and will turn any novice into a professional panorama creator. Just click Panorama Photo Stitcher and download your copy today.

Enjoy and let me know how you get on with your results.
