Anyone know of a good low cost or free program that can automatcicaly stitch several phots onto a pranorama.... something where I don't have to sit thereand manuallly andblend them together and try to line them up myself. I have tried to do this in photoshop but it takes me forever to get the canvas larger and then get the photos to line up and overlap perfectly.

Any thoughts or ideas would be be appreciated.

I already own photodhop elements 5.0 and a durbook laptop with 2GB of ram iif that helps in your answer.

PSE 5.0 has a panorama tool included that works reasonably well. Have you tried it?

The easiest to use and free program is AutoStitch, which you can download here:

More flexible and powerful (but you have to pay for this power :-)) is Panorama Maker Pro, you can download a fully functional trial here:

There's a 'Panoramas and stitching' forum right here in Steve's Forums, and you'll find information if you delve in its archives.

Funny I didn't see that, so now I have not tried it. I will have to dig deeper and see what I can find out about it

I have used Ulead's Cool 360 with good results. It does flat panos as well as 360 degrees. The dynamics of the 360s result in some odd effects at times, but the flat panos are good, with auto stitching which can be manually fine-tuned. Not bad for a freeby that came with my editing program.
