Automatic panorama stitching application for Mac. Perfect for making high resolution images for large prints.
***Mini version can stitch up to five images***
State of the art algorithm:
- Automatic alignment of source photos.
- Handling of moving objects. Inconsistencies between images in intersections are minimized.
- Automatic exposure levelling and lens shading correction.
- Rectilinear and equirectangular projections for rendering.
- Automatic cropping algorithm.
- Accurate color handling. Output image is in the same color space as source images.
- EXIF tags from source files are merged to output.
Simple and clean user interface:
- Just drag and drop images to start stitching. All editing controls are at hand.
- Straighten and rotate panorama as needed with projection editor. Hardware accelerated preview allows to see all changes in real time.
- Manual exposure correction and crop controls.
- Import in all image formats supported by Mac OS X, including all formats supported by Apple RAW.
- Export in JPG, TIFF and PNG formats.
- Support for planar alignment. Now additionally to standard spherical panoramas it is possible to properly stitch oversized scans, microscope images, aerial maps etc.
- Photosphere tags are added to the output (for spherical panoramas with equirectangular projection). Panoramas with Photosphere tags are navigable on Facebook, Street View or any compatible image viewer.
- As requested by architectural photographers the grid in projection editor is more denser.
- Memory consumption on export of large images is reduced.
- EXIF date on panorama was sometimes in different timezone than source photos.
- Many small stability and performance fixes.
Ratings and Reviews
Works Surprisingly Well
Went to Grand Teton and took some photos. I didn’t have a good wide angle lens and it was just a couple minutes stop on our way back. All I had was a 35mm ZM lens which I knew has some distortion. But regardless wanted to give a try to take three photos horizontally of the Teton.
Back home, edited the photos, I carefully made sure exposure remains constant. Loaded this app to stitch. It actually automatically adjusts exposure and is smart enough to stitch three photos together. It also allows you to adjust the distortion direction.
The result is a 47M large jpg file that I’m quite proud of. This app worth five stars. Give it a try you won’t be disappointed.
Just experimented with 5 poorly taken pictures of a hospital I where I lived. Was frustrated with a different photo stich version and thought I would give this one a try. Was pleasantly surprised how nicely it turned out.
Simple, but very limiting
I’m not an artist or a pro, but I have an eye. I’d like to select photos and put them together as a pano and tweak them to match. This app even decides for me whether or not the selected photos are similar enough to stitch. Big disadvantage! Maybe the paid one gives more flexibility, but for now I’ll keep looking...
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
