Panoramic Photos

After reading Rick's post  yesterday morning about a new program for panoramic photo's, I decided to give it a try.

It's called Autostitch and it's really a great, and FREE program.  You can easily convert at least two and apparently many, many pictures into one panoramic shot.  On the link above, scroll down and look at the photo they did with 57 images.

I downloaded the program.  It was so fast, I wasn't sure it actually was there.  Then I went outside and took some pictures.  I just went for between 2 and 4 pictures.  After I got the pictures downloaded, I tried the program and it worked beautifully.  It took me a little while to figure out to save the panoramic shot, I had to select "make a copy."

I don't really have the beautiful panoramic views that would work so well with this program, but here is one I did.  This picture is taken from the far side of the pasture area.  See what I mean about having a lot of grass to mow?  That's 4-5 acres and there is 11 total.  Yeah, there is always grass that needs to be mowed somewhere.  :)

I took some more pictures and will play with them again today. It's a fun and easy program.  Try it.  Thanks again Rick!

I had some trouble getting the photo centered correctly.  I first put it at extra large in size, but that didn't work, as only half of the photo showed up.  I finally decided to move it "left" instead of centered and sized it "large."  That appears to have centered it correctly.  Of course I'm using Blogger to post this, as I haven't been able to fix my LiveWriter problems yet.


  1. After seeing what you've done, I just may have to give that program a try. You make it sound easy and maybe, just maybe, I can figure it out. Thanks

  2. Nice job on the panorama photos Karen, and also, thanks so much for the kind words.

    After your panorama shot is created by AutoStitch, instead of using "Make A Copy", try clicking on the "down arrow" right next to Open and you will see various options for saving your panorama photo including Picasa.

  3. That is really neat! I am gonna hafta try that. Thanks for the information.
