    What do you find to be the best photo stitching software out there, either free or fee based?

    Many thanks.

    last year i tested quite a few programs including PSCS2 with a couple of very difficult panos.

    panorama plus from Serif did the best j ob, it was listed on auto stitch site indicating that they had a liscense to use their software which is very powerful.

    it wasn't very expensive which was a plus.

    Totally have to agree that CS3 is one of the best.

    hmm Panorama Plus (version 3 now) looks to be a limited application software, but also as its limited very powerful software - if you were making panoramas a lot I would choose this for the stitching.

    However Photoshop Elements 7 also introduces a decent panorama stitching feature - along with its host of other editing freatures I would say this is one of the better budget editing programs.

    After that there is Paint Shop pro X2 (PSP11) which has a layered stitching feature (allows you to stitch together several different shots of the same scene - for HDR photos). and is also at a decent budget:
    demo here: http://www.corel.com/servlet/Satellite/us/en/Product/1184951547051

    After all that though if you have the money for photoshop the full version then go for it :)

    yes panaroma plus 3 is a stand alone program, sorry i didn't mention that.

    if you are really doing a lot of pano's then i wuoild suggest using it; however, if you only do a few or only on occasion then i would sugget getting a program that provides more editing features.

    Panorama Studio is what I use occasionally. for single row panoramas it is very good.

    They only get lazier as you go up. You can do anything in Elements 4 that you can in CS 3. It just takes longer and more knowlege.
