But Apple’s implementation is actually easy to use, therefore, likely to get used. What about those thousands of photos you have in iPhoto? Drag the right photos or videos and drop them into an inexpensive app that produces expensively looking panorama photos.
Drag, Drop. Voila! Panorama!
All that’s really required to create a good panorama photo is a steady hand. Take a photo of a scene. Then, on the same visual plane, take a photo to the left and then to the right of the scene.
Add all the photos together and you get a panorama view. It’s the adding together into a seamless photo that’s the real trick.
Stitcha is the Mac app that does the seamless part. This inexpensive app digitally stitches photos together to create an ultra wide angle panorama view.
All that’s required is a few photos of a scene. Then, drag and drop them onto the Stitcha app. The app then combines the images into one panorama photo.
Here’s what Stitcha looks like before the drag and drop.
What could be easier?
Well, actually, Stitcha has another trick up its digital sleeve that makes panorama photos even easier.
Add a video clip. It’s a simple process.
Use your video camera do create a panoramic video of your scene. Then, add the video to your Mac and then drag and drop the video onto Stitcha.
Stitcha can take a 1080p video (even a vertical video) and extract the panoramic view automatically.
Try that on your iPhone. Stitcha creates a video movement synopsis of your video clip, too. The resulting panorama photos are remarkably seamless, especially those pulled from video clips.
Unfortunately, there’s no trial-before-you-buy option for Stitcha, and it’s priced a few dollars above our throwaway threshold.
