Ooh, interesting find! Downloading now...

And your pic reminds me of one I did before with Photoshop Elements. :)

Just fed in a couple of handheld panoramas to test it. It does well on exposure blending, but the joints could be better. It seems to use selective picking on 8x8 blocks so on lines they can be offset by a few pixels when peeping. Compared to the stitcher in Photoshop Elements, it seems to be much less demanding on RAM requirements. But Elements does better detail blending on joins.

Considering the price (free!) I think it worth a play, which I'm going to do more of :)

Only just heard about this program, so downloaded it last night.

I'm mighty impressed with it. 8)

Panorama made with Microsoft Image Composite Editor. Started with seven 38 Mb .NEF files, dragged them into the ICE workspace, waited 3-4 minutes and presto, a great big picture. Never made it to post other than making the pan- so as shot. Thanks to Camera Labs people for the shared info!

I've got the program, it came free with my Canon SX20 IS, but still, thanks.
Anyways, I don't use it because I thought it wasn't that good, never trusted it really :?
Is it worth replacing it with other software it or should I keep Canon's stitcher?

Well I think it will suit my needs, I'll give it a try. Mostly what I'm looking for is that the panorama doesn't have any obvious seams, that kind of annoys me.
Anyways, thanks! :)

I agree, I find it quite easy to fix skies in Photoshop, the only issue would be if the buildings had these obvious seams, but from what I can see, it's pretty good. I'll give it a try with a panorama I had tried to stitch before with Photoshop but failed, unfortunately, and I'll post the result if you're interested. Thanks! :)

Finally found my panorama, here's the result with a little PP. I didn't love the panorama, but I guess Canon's stitcher did good job :)

EDIT: I forgot, there's one really ugly seam in the sky caused by some change in color, but I guess the stitcher would not have been able to sort it out.

I would be interested in a consensus on this as well. I have a copy of Canon's Stitcher (somewhere :P), certainly easier for me to click download/install but I would prefer to install the better of the two.
