Been reading about the different software and how they make life easy ...
Have tried a few like Photomerge (works great most of the time), then tried the trial versions of PTGUI, Autostitch and The Pano Factory ... but they seem to work with rotated photos (a series of photos taken from one point rotated around a central axis, like a tripod head or pano mount).
I may be missing something, but I have a series of overlapping shots taken along a STRAIGHT LINE - I kept the camera and sensor plane parallel to the subject, and moved the entire tripod laterally. Made sure I had tons of overlap just to play safe.
How do I stitch these, please?
All the software I tried had problems either recognizing the images, or I ended up with craziiiiieeeee looking panos!
