    I used to use a software but forget what it was called, and don't even know if there were better ones...

    Does anyone recommend software that does a good job of stitching together photos to create panoramic images?

    Photoshop CS is what I now use, does a very good job. I used to use Panotools. It is free and very powerfull. Its installation is a little obscure but well worth it if you don't have access to the latest versions of Photoshop. If you want Panotools do a google search, it's still out there.

    PS CS2 I've tried Panoramic Maker2 & 3 and two other programs, but I get the best results with CS2.

    I had a little job recently that this feature in PS came in very handy for. I had a client that came in with an 11X16 print of his race car. He had taken the shot at a race his son drove in. He wanted me to use the image for another job he had in mind. My scanner will only scan up to 8.5" X 14". I scanned it in 4 sections and joined the 4 pieces in Photoshop. Very simple and quick. I generated a 300 DPI full size file in about 10 min. and without any trace of the pieces. If you have access to PS, this would be the perfered method I would agree.

    Do it your self in Photoshop.
    When you take your photos make sure you have some room for overlapping, set the erasers opacity to around 50% and experiment.
