Can anyone recommend a good panoramic photo stitching software that will work on a mac? I have photo stitch that came with my cannon but it will not open on my mac. Thanks in advance!

Photoshop CS5. Create panoramic images with Photomerge. Its not the cheapest but it is the best and mostly auto. If you have PS CS5 you have the best tool.

There are two great free options. One is autostitch and the other is Microsoft ICE. Both work great, though I prefer autostitch's results.

Edit: Sorry didn't notice the Mac requirement. Can't help you there.

Glen, I've ran into that same issue on my mac. Right now i'm trying Hugin, which seems to be working out very well.

I've heard some good things about Microsoft Image Composite editor (ICE). I've used to it to stitch with some decent results. However it screws up when there are lots of trees. That happens with any other s/w too I guess.

I use Auto Pano Pro

http://www.kolor.com/panorama-software-autopano-pro.html

On their website it says it works for mac.

I wrote a little tutorial on it on my website:

http://www.100summits.com/articles/tips-and-tricks/photography-tips/item/196-landscape-panoramic-tutorial.html

Since writing it, I learned that it will auto-crop for you too, which is a neat feature. You can even change the center point on a large pano. Pretty neat stuff.

Glad that's working out. I have CS4 and still use Hugin for my panos. Photoshop is great to have but definitely not an all-in-one IMO.

I use Photoshop Elements. I know it's probably CS with training wheels, but it's a lot cheaper and I've been very happy with the photomerge feature.
