Have you enjoyed Panoramic photos? Ever wondered how these panoramic photos are created? If not, Panoramic photographs are big images, which are made by joining together with a group of images. You can create panoramic images manually, using software like Photoshop or you can do it inside your camera. Most of the advanced cameras available on the market has an inbuilt panorama feature. Fro example the Sony HX200V camera has a panorama setting in the dial. After setting the dial in the panorama mode, we can start taking photos from left to right or from right (based on the settings), the camera stitches the images to a nice panorama and the output file is a JPG file. If your camera doesn’t have an inbuilt panorama feature, you can do it using some software.
Most of such software are costly. To purchase the software to create a panoramic photo is not a viable option. In this contest here is a nice tool to create stunning panoramas for free. The tool is Microsoft’s Image Composite Editer (ICE). All you need to do is capture your images.
