Serif PanoramaPlus Starter Edition is the free version of PanoramaPlus, a fully automated graphic editor that seamlessly stitches a series of digital photographs to create a stunning panorama view. The panoramas created can be either vertical or horizontal, and the final result can then be exported as a JPEG image file.
The whole stitching process requires no intervention on your side whatsoever. The program will look for the coinciding features in the selected series of images and will join them together in the most accurate way possible. If all the images have been taken under the same light, with the same exposure values, and without any blurry areas, the resulting panorama will certainly leave your breathless. The overlapping algorithm used by PanoramaPlus is the most accurate I have come across so far.
PanoramaPlus Starter Edition is a one-task tool, and as such there is nothing much you can do with your images before or after the joining process. You can resize your images before putting them all together, and you can have a full-screen view of the panorama once created, and that is basically all the extra functionality you will get. Typically, the resulting panorama will require some cropping and, in some cases, to be slightly rotated to get a perfectly aligned image, but you will need a third-party image editor to perform these small editing tasks.
