One of the more talked about features in iPhone 5 is the panorama option in the camera app. If there’s an easier, less expensive way to create panoramic photos, I don’t know what it is.
For Mac users who want a similar panorama photo you’ll have to do a little extra work, take more photos, and use an app like PanoEdit.
Essentially, PanoEdit is a photo stitcher. It stitches multiple photos together to create the panorama view.
PanoEdit does horizontal, vertical, and multiple row stitching. It also automatically compensates for exposure differences between photos.
Photos can be cropped within PanoEdit, scaled, and resized to pixel perfection. There’s even an option for spherical view to create a fish eye lens photo.
From experience, PanoEdit works best with landscape and nature scenes as opposed to vertical (more photos) and cityscapes (where vertical lines cause problems in the image).
It’s fast and easy to use but there are no additional editing options once PanoEdit brings your photos into a panorama view.
