Good point Bill. However there's several ways to deal with tilting lines though and still be able to get a really good result using an automatic stitching program. For me - the PT would be a program to use in "emergencies"...

The link you posted I have read before. I find it much easier to use PS for correcting perspective. But I guess it's a matter of knowing your equipment and what you want to do with your shot. If you already know this when recording your image - you will save a lot of work.

Thanks for the comment!

I agree, it is worth having one of the simple stitching programs for simple jobs. It seems the "emergenies" come up fairly often. Knowing that you can deal with the "emergencies" will let you try shots that you would otherwise pass by.

It is also true that there are a fair number of other programs that will deal with perspective and lens distortion. If you look at the total learning needed to figure out three programs (stitching, perspective, barrel/pincushion), I am not sure it is any easier than figuring out Panorama Tools. Like many other software choices, it is in good part a matter of taste and style.

As you said, "But I guess it's a matter of knowing your equipment and what you want to do with your shot. If you already know this when recording your image - you will save a lot of work."
