Hi Steve,

Both look good, I don't know what that autostitch program is like not seen or used it!

But for free it's goto be good not everyone has Photoshop CS or wants to use it (too much advanced) so a basic free panorama stitcher is great.

Nice to know it works ok though

Your an engineer...how can you find CS to advanced? I knew nothing about it but after buying a book about it it is a brilliant programme and not to hard after some practise

Tony,

Mmmmmm, I'm in the don't want to play too much with post processing camp.

I know some peeps love to spend hours "improving" their snaps and thats fine, but I just like to take the shots and print.
Yep this is a divided subject, I'm quite happy with a very basic simple quick fix program.....if needed. Hopefully will try and master good shots straight from the cameraso minimal post processing is required.

Just my own preference.

Ian

So i just tried making a panorama using CS....far to fiddly :-)and just tried autostitch...very very good result as my exposures were slightly different in each pic as i had taken them in auto mode. Auto stitch corrected the exposures so that they all matched. You do not always find the time to use manual mode and it is great to know auto stitch can work around that!

CS can take ages to fiddle with but what it can do to save pics that would otherwise be deleted is fantastic. I never worry about over or underexposure with flash for instance as you can add or detract flash effect for example. Still i know what you mean about having a simple programme to do quick fixes. The nature of digital is that most pics will need some sort of correction or can be improved in an editing suite and i guess everyone has a different look they want to achieve.

Anyway here is my first panorama made from 4 pics...very dull day as you can see

It seems that you can take vertical and horizontal panoramas and Autostitch will make it all into one big photo......very useful feature that!
