Default Silkypix opinions?

What's your opinion of the Silkypix software? I haven't downloaded it as of yet; wanted to see what all of you thought of it, first.

Thanks!

I answered my own question. Downloaded it, would not let me access it on Vista; saying that the resolution had to be 1024x768 16bit font size. If text font size larger than specified 100% size reduce it.

My specs are over that; and am using 32bit font.

Then I uninstalled it (BTW, it's 157MB!!); and I could not delete the shortcut!

Too quirky for me; I'll have to find a separate program to stitch panaramas. Not happy with that software, at all.

I only use silkypix to convert raw to tiff. Try hugin for panoramas - it's freeware and I've found it works really well.

I've also been using hugin - it's extremely powerful and it's free.

Probably not much point posting it here because of the width, but this one of a golf club by the ocean that we visited the other day turned out well:
