Some of you who like to stitch photos together using photomerge or the crazy people who do it manually, may be interested in this post. You can download a free stitch program (windows only) at
By default it creates quite a low res file. If you go into edit - options however you can change the size to 100% and jpeg quality to 100. Then all you do is go to open and select the jpeg files you want it to stitch. Hit ok and it does its thing. Very easy and extremely accurate.
The sample i am posting is made up of 26 images that were shot vertically and handheld. I retouched the sky and water a bit but only for objects that were in the original photos and not for any problems the software had.
