Panoramic image stitching software from MicrosoftJanuary 23, 2010
From the bowels of the Microsoft Research labs comes Image Composite Editor, an:
…advanced panoramic image stitcher [that] takes a set of overlapping photographs of a scene shot from a single camera location and creates a high-resolution panorama incorporating all the source images at full resolution. The stitched panorama can be saved in a wide variety of formats, from common formats like JPEG and TIFF to multi-resolution tiled formats like HD View and Silverlight Deep Zoom.
Image Composite Editor is free, but because it’s from the research labs, it’s not officially supported; however, there is a user forum. It comes in 32-bit and 64-bit flavors.
