Panoramas are high-resolution pictures that are realized in order to capture a very large viewing angle and a substantial amount of details. But, since not every camera comes with the ability to produce such photos, you can improvise and take more pictures one after the other, in order to stitch them together later.
View and select the desired images to blend
STOIK PanoramaMaker is an application that offers a work-around solution, by enabling you to stitch ordinary pictures together and obtain a panorama effect. To achieve that, you first must, obviously, take a few pictures and capture the desired viewing angle, after which you open the said files inside the program and let the application handle the rest.
The files and folders available on your computer can be browsed in the main window of the application and you can also preview thumbnail images of the documents contained by them. To add the desired files, you can use the add button, or simply drag-and-drop them into the timeline, where you can also change their order.
Stitch pictures into horizontal or vertical panoramas
Once you have added all the photos, you can start the stitching process. Depending on your preferences and the nature of the images, the resulting panorama can have either horizontal or vertical orientation. To further adjust the parameters, you can choose the focal length, enable the lens distortion compensation and activate the 360 degrees mode.
Furthermore, you can also choose between tiled and multifocus panoramas, which allow you to switch on the high order aberration and select the cylindrical or spherical geometrical compensation. The elevation, azimuth and tilt sliders can be used to correct various orientation mistakes in the resulting picture and you can also control the export parameters, such as cropping and print page setup.
Although panorama images require a bit of experience to create and adjust, STOIK PanoramaMaker greatly simplifies the process, by automating a large part of the procedure. In addition, you are presented with a wide range of options and adjustments, all of which can be easy-to-handle, as long as you are familiar with the terms.
