Inexpensive panoramic software... ?

Postby brian123 » Wed Dec 19, 2007 12:58 pm

I just purchased a D40x with the two lens package. My next purchase will be a polarized filter or some good software that includes the panoramic function. Any Ideas on good software or lens filters? Thanks for any help!

When I got a new Canon a year or two ago, I was eager to try out the panorama software that came with it and see how nice it was. Ran a few sets of images through both it and Autostitch, a free app available for download on the Internet. Autostitch won easily. I can heartily recommend adding it to your photographic toolbox! (Let me know if you want to see some sample images.)

Thanx man!

Free is about as inexpensive as you can get!

If you want to mess around with digital photos in general, check out GIMP, a free, powerful, hard-to-use (sort of) image manipulation program. Lots of cool features, steep learning curve.

Yeah, GIMP is pretty powerful! On the other hand, if you look at photo manipulation as more of a passing acquaintance than a close relative, then check out Google Picasa (http://picasa.google.com/). It performs many common transformations with just a point-and-click interface, usually with quite pleasing results. I imagine most photographic professionals would scoff at it, as it's more like a butter knife than a scalpel, but that may be exactly what you want.
