Editors' review

ArcSoft Panorama Maker Pro is a simple and elegant way for users to convert multiple images into one panoramic image. Its sleek design and ease of use place it among the best programs we've seen.

The program's interface is quite sleek and attractive. The first screen that users encounter upon opening the program contains information about how to shoot photos that make good panoramic images, including information about camera settings, tripod use, and photo overlap. Past that, to the left is a tree-structured view of the computer, allowing users to quickly locate the images that they want to work with. Because we had access to photos taken by a professional with a tripod, all we had to do was choose our images, click Next, and the program converted our four photos into one seamless panoramic image. We were quite impressed with how good the result looked, with no indication that multiple images had been stitched together. The program recognizes, of course, that in many cases users will not have perfectly level, perfectly metered shots, so it gives users the option of manually adjusting the alignment points and blend. Users can also adjust the brightness and contrast of images. A variety of panoramic layouts is supported, including vertical, horizontal, tile, and 360 degrees. The online Help file is brief but useful.

ArcSoft Panorama Maker Pro is free to try, but results can only be saved at 1/16 size. The program installs desktop icons without asking but uninstalls cleanly. We strongly recommend this program to all users.

    "Horrible Results"

    December 08, 2013   |   By os2er

    Version: ArcSoft Panorama Maker 6.0.0.9418

    Pros

    Believe me, there were none.

    Cons

    I tried my first set of photos, and the resulting panorama was horrible. I read through the docs / tutorials, and tried again. The results were again, horrible, so I tried a different set of photos, and then another, and another. Not one decent panorama was achieved. This software is completely broken, and reading through recent reviews, apparently it's been that way for some time now. To sum up, Panorama Maker was a complete waste of time. I've never experienced commercial software this bad.
