For you Windows users, there is a free photo stitching program available on the AutoStitch
website that is extremely easy to use. Maybe not professional quality but works great for the average shooter.
Once the options are set, you just open the program and then open the files...that's it. It will produce an image called "pano.jpg" (if the file already exists from a previous stitching, it will be overwritten!).
-make sure there is ~30% of overlap between the pics
-turn the camera when taking the pics, not your body
-instead of explaining it, this is what I have...
-You may want to mess with the 'output size'.
this is essentially a fish eye view so there will be distortion.
