Hi

looking for advice on programs for stitching images together.

Been using CS5 for my panorama shots & find it a bit hit & miss.

Any recommendations on any software/programs that you find great to work with please.

Hello Cookey, many people like Microsoft ICE (external link), and it's free.

I use microsoft ICE first, and if that doesn't do a good job I take my images in photoshop to try it there. PTgui is another program a lot of people I know use, you have a lot more control over stitching and use control points to help the program figure out how to align the photos, but it's not free.

I use PTGui (external link), but you may want to try Hugin (external link) (open source) first.

What kind of subjects are you shooting panoramas of? If they're indoors/have nearby objects, the issue may not be your stitcher, but parallax caused from not rotating the lens around its no-parallax point.

Another vote for Hugin!

One vote for ICE.
I was trying to stitch 20+ captures of the Milky Way in CS6 and it was choking....ICE stitched in less than a minute and I could find no aberrations/stitch lines. Not only free but fast.

Hugin - excellent and for free. Photoshop Elements - probably the same tool like in Photoshop.
