Create multiple panoramas simultaneously

PanoramaPlus X4 intelligently recognises different sets of photos, saving you time by stitching multiple panoramas in one go. It does this by analysing overlapping features of related photos. Save each of your panoramas before exporting them, allowing you to edit them time and time again.

Quickly and easily rotate individual source photos or an entire stitched image. This is perfect if, for instance, you've taken portrait orientation photos of high-rise buildings or elevated landscapes.

I used the download version of Serif PanoramaPlus X4 for a computer running Windows XP Pro. Although I don't expect professional quality or performance for $20, the overall product was below par. The output image quality is fair, and contains shadow artifacts where adjacent images overlap. The user interface is simple, but runtime performance of PanoramaPlus X4 was poor when stitching seven 8-megapixel images together. Additional features of PanoramaPlus X4 are limited; it does not provide the ability to adjust lens parameters or adjust perspective. Be sure to select "Optimum Size" in the "Resize" option of export (default image compression is poor).

Also note: I installed the application twice. The first installation was clean and the tool appeared to run, but with poor results (it wouldn't recognize overlapping images). I uninstalled, re-installed, and tried again with better results (but still disappointing).

Consider other free panorama tools: Microsoft Image Composite Editor (ICE) has more features (and it is free). Hugin is also free, but complex capabilities require more effort than a casual software tool. Search the Internet for "free panorama software".

I tried this program after a stitching program I had been using became useless when I upgraded to Windows 8. Evaluation - average at best. While the program stitches photos together, the resulting stitched-photo loses significant definition, having been saved by the program with much less data together than the original photos separately.

Went to Maine during the summer and took a number of shots that needed to be stiched together. While the interface for the program works well, the resulting stiched panoramic images is of very low reslution. It was only after that I used the Serif software that I realized that my CS3 software did the same thing (I played around with it and figured it out). With CS3 the reulting stiched images were more than a sum total of the combined MB's but a friend taught me how to save them as smaller images (12MB). Serif cannot compete. The panoramic prints produced by the software may be OK for sending over the net via Facebook or the like, but for professional quality, look elsewhere.
