Default MS ICE - A Simple free panoramic app

If our looking for a simple to use stitching app for windows, give MS's ICE app a go - I stumbled across it a few months back and from the simple pics that I've worked on it works pretty well.

http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/...7/default.aspx

Here's a couple of pics - 3 or 4 shots each with the E3 and then run through MS ICE

1. Sri Harminder Sahib,The Golden Temple, Amritsar, Punjab India



2. Sarovar, Ludhiana, Punjab India



For somethings thats free and just 200K its a pretty nifty app.

Just looking at their vid of the product, I'll have to give it a try. I'll take the camera to the park tonight and shoot a couple of sets.

Thanks for the heads up mate.

Couldn't believe how simple it was.
Went out on the deck shot off 6 quick shots (same focal length )sized them down and converted to jpeg and dropped them in ICE and Walla!!!

Cropping and tweaking is the same as a normal shot.

Its a pretty nifty bit of software and dead easy to use and what makes it even more remarkable is that it comes with a GUI too for somethings thats just 2.4Mb.

Default grand canyon 6 shot stitch

from my trip this April. Thanks for the tip on MICE I took this shots for a panoramic but apparently didn't put it in the right mode and the Olympus software wouldn't stitch them for me. MICE had zero issues stitching these 6 shots from my Olympus E-PL2 with the Panasonic 14mm.
