ive had some bad experiences with PTgui, where the entire pic was distorted very badly and the colour was just off (seriously, can post here if u wanna see)

however, id recommend panorama factory - ive been using it for quite a while, and i must say it works really nicely. corrects brightness falloff, distortion etc and basically corrects some of the mistakes u make while shooting

i would think photomatix is easy for hdr, it's all very intuitive

and well if you can't use it, i know quite a number of people here use it so they can help :)

i haven't tried any other hdr rendering software.. unless you count photoshop which sucks

well i havent tried many pano stitchers, just a small handful. pano factory just requires me to import the pics then press 'next' like seven times cos ive already preset the stuff

i wish could just press next once, but i guess that isnt bad anyway. most stitchers, if u use fully auto will be usually quite fast and easy to use

Is the free and basic version of photomatix good enough to achieve good effects?
