PanoramaStudio

Enjoy taking lots of photographs? Do you like to have pictures that reveal a 360 degree image of the pictures? Some users may try to use image editing softwares to try and create a panorama view of the pictures, such as Photoshop. However, such softwares are not specialised in doing these works. If you are into panoramic pictures, then you should give a try on PanoramaStudio.

PanoramaStudio creates seamless 360 degree and wide angle panoramas from sets of photos, offering automatic stitching, enhancing and blending of the images. Thus, users do not need to undergo the pain of merging pictures themselves.

PanoramaStudio can also detect lens correction and focal length. The Exif data of the images will also be processed. Therefore more than 600 digital cameras are already stored in the internal database.


If you feel like doing some touch-up to the image, you can post-process the output manually. Furthermore, additional tools such as filters for post-processing and hotspot editing are included. Another fine function of PanoramaStudio is that it allows export of files to some of the most common file formats, such as interactive QuickTimeVR and Java panoramas, and with the poster printing function.

New features in version 1.3:

  • * New blending mode (multiband blending) for seamless stitching – even of difficult photos
  • * New: Configurable Auto Play for QuickTimeVR panoramas!
  • * Improved poster printing
  • * The camera database was extended by another 150 camera models; more than 600 digital compact and SLR cameras will be detected automatically
  • * Imports existing panoramic images for further processing
  • * Polygon hotspots
  • * Many details improved…

    In the last couple years, I’ve tried several panoramic software programs. I ended up buying OmniStitcher as it was a fairly decent program. Not perfect, but pretty darn good. A bit of a pain to use at times, but it got the job done w/ a minimum of fuss. I don’t recall being overly impressed by PanoramaStudio’s software for some reason. It lost out to OmniStitcher when I was making the decision on which was best. Most of the rest were hard to use or just junk with GUI attached.

    Recently, I found PTGui 5.1 and gave it a try. Liked it enough that I purchased it and now use it instead of OmniStitcher. From my personal experience, PTGui’s the best panorama software around.
