PanoWizard is an attempt to let a user create panoramas in a simple way. By using freeware already available on the Internet, PanoWizard tries to tie these existing components together.
The freeware available often assumes that the user is accustomed to DOS
commands, parameters and more. The PanoWizard was designed to make all of this
software work together in a simple way and to limit the userís knowledge to
complex and advanced technology.
In the right way means that you actually have to know a little about the
software being used. A Professor Helmut Dersch created some software (PanoTools)
in the late 90:ies that could stitch (or merge) several images together in a
fabulous way by "bending" them so the result would look like it was actually the
same picture (later versions are continuously being developed by
There are other applications available that serves as a front end for PanoTools. PTGui is one of them. It can do a bit more than PanoWizard but is not freeware. Another popular software is PTAssembler which is similar to PTGui. AutoStitch is a new promising software which is supposed to be a fully automatic panorama generator. I have not tried it much but if you get it to work it is the simplest tool to use. Despite of the previously mentioned applications, I hope PanoWizard justifies it's existence.
Well, this is an introduction to the world of panoramas and PanoWizard. Hope you find this software useful and it will meets your needs. Please, feel free download your version of PanoWizard!
