Woohoo - stitched my first panorama today - while it's no masterpieceI am quite pleased with myself.

Only 3 photos combined, but used the Arcsoft Panorama Maker sw that came with my FZ20. It could not get any easier and I think it turned out pretty well! Especially considering that all 3 shots were handheld. I urge anyone who has not yet tried it to have a go.

Very nice pan Suze, but I think you should have done some PP on it.

Here is my take.

Thanks for looking and for the encouragement everyone :-).

Lovelife - I actually did do some pp on this - appears not enough though. I do see your point - mine is a little dark so is hiding some of the detail. Yours looks a bit oversharp though to me, a personal preference I guess. I have tried to fix this on another version that'sin between the two - hoping this works :-)

John - thanks for the SW tip, I'll have a peek at those tonight

Nice panorama Suze. You've inspired me to post a couple on mine. I've tried a few in the past but could always see the joins (which I can't in yours), so tried Autostitch. Thanks for the link Boyzo, much quicker and far more realistic results than the software I've used before. Pics taken with my recently acquired FZ5 (I love this camera!).
