    Taking Panorama Pictures
    I discovered this tip from looking at how others were taking their pictures.
    Sure made a difference in the output. Tilt the camera to the portrait position
    instead of the landscape position. I use the free Calico panorama software
    but for $30 the water marks can be removed after registration.

    Yeah... That is a great technique! Although it means more stitches the extra resolution is well worth it... For instance...This image is 6560x3107.

    I found a free photo stitching program for mac just a little while ago. It's made by HP and included in their "ImageZone" software. You can download it here.

    I've been using it for a while now, and I prefer it over the photo stitch software that came with my canon. Those are some great pics BTW!!

    I normally use the Photomerge capability in Photoshop, however, I'll give the above mentioed softwarez a go as well, see if they're any better.

    Glad you like it... Here is a 50% res version... Just promise you won't look too close for seams... :dummy: I still need to fix a few places.

    Thanks for the head's up on that HP software. I already had a HP All-in-One printer and it came with HP Image Zone CD. I bought the HP printer in Sep 05 and the software was for 2004. The new imaging software is for 2005 and is much nicer and includes the stitching software. I ended up buying that Calico Software about 2 weeks ago. I thought it worked great until I tried this HP Image Zone. It would take about 15 minutes for the Calico to stitch 12 2.5mg images and then rough crop it. The same stitch with the HP would take about 1 minute and end up cropping it perfectly for printing or saving. Also it saves the .jpg in the raw as it ends up about 25mg vice 3.5mg with the Calico. I get a sharper picture with the raw image. I don't have to worry much about disc space yet on my single core iMac G5 2Ghz with 160gig hard drive.

    Here is a picture from Harbor Island showing Downtown San Diego using the HP sticher.
