i2k Quickage Pro

CNET Editors' review

DualAlign's I2K Quickage Pro provides the tools for stitching together several similar pictures to create a photomontage. This surprising program performed its tasks with excellent results.

The program's interface has a professional layout that is simple to operate, since it only offers the most minimal options throughout. We did need the Help file to understand our panorama options, however. We easily sorted through our collection of photos and selected a few that were very similar, with both images focused on the same subject but taken from slightly different perspectives. The program was slow to stitch together even two pictures, but after several minutes the two images fused to create a complete shot. While the final shot needed some cropping, since the two originals weren't perfect puzzle pieces, the result showed surprisingly high quality. We envisioned this working well for creating panoramic landscape shots. The program offered a nice feature to adjust the quality of the montage and to choose which panoramic filter to use, though we felt the default setting was best, as it takes a certain level of photographic knowledge to determine the best settings. While we didn't expect much, I2K Quickage Pro did a nice job of stitching together images to make a single, seamless shot.

I2k Quickage Pro is limited to a five-day, 25-use trial period. By fusing two similar pictures into one, this is a great program and one we recommend.

    "Simple to use, works great."

    August 1, 2010  |   By mwooge

    Version: i2k Quickage Pro 1.3.6

    Pros

    Slow, but works well. Better than my manual stitch. watermark. Easy to use: steer to the picture folder, select, click on "Generate Montage". Accepts JPG and TIF images and can save in those formats.

    Cons

    Pricey, but worth it if you need flawless photo stitching.

    Summary

    Output from my test photos was perfect. I could not tell where the images were connected, despite a slight mis-alignment of the scans and uneven lighting. My test images were a scan of an antique, B&W panoramic photo, 8" x 44", scanned in as six TIF images at about 78M each. Output photo was 386 megabytes.

    "phenomenal result"

    September 13, 2009  |   By hikergirl

    Version: i2k Quickage Pro 1.2.1

    Pros

    I gave it 5 film frames of a mountain overlook. The result was so wonderful, I couldn't wait to share it with the world. The company told me I could have obtained the same result with 3 frames.

    Cons

    MS continually stopped at approx. 27% upload. Had to contact DualAlign. All views were stuck in its server. The gentleman who helped me was so gracious and patient. I don't know if we ever discovered the problem, but I did get my finished product.

    Summary

    For someone who has a long way to go before calling herself competent with any software, I was extremely pleased with the result. Because the panoramic came in a compressed 4x6 image, which I forwarded electronically to Walgreens, I was charged only for a 4x6, not a 4x12. Excellent software and ease of use.

    "Great fully automatic panorama software"

    July 27, 2009  |   By train5boy

    Version: i2k Quickage Pro 1.2.1

    Pros

    Just select the images to assemble and click the "generate montage" button to get a fantastic panorama. Does not require any pre alignment of images. Automatically corrects for changes in camera position between shots, no need for a "pano-head"

    Cons

    Panorama generation is not instantanious, but is far faster than software that requires you to arrange the images first.

    Summary

    This software does an amazing job of automatically generating montages or panoramas. Gone are the days when a good panorama required a superb camera mounted on a "pano-head" so it would rotate about the lens nodal (or no-parallax) point. If you have such a setup, use it with this software to easily produce as good or better a panorama as anything else out there. But even with a hand held camera, you can get great panoramas with minimal effort. The software will automatically correct for parallax and differences in exposure between shots to give a seamless image. I had a set of 17 images taken of my living room which it assembled flawlessly. I tried to "break" it by giving it a set of 3 images where the third image was taken from the center of the area seen in the first image, and it did a remarkably good job of assembling them. Overall an amazing piece of software, highly recommended for anyone who take pictures.

    "Easy to use and excellent panorama"

    June 26, 2009  |   By Blue-Vision

    Version: i2k Quickage Pro 1.2.1

    Pros

    - Easy to use: Just pick images and click the "generate" button.
    - Auto-cropping is useful. It saves me time from loading the panorama into an image editor and applying the cropping by myself.
    - Nice and pretty panorama! Haven't run into any pro.

    Cons

    I have not yet found real cons of this software. If one must be named, the software is a bit slow during processing.

    Summary

    In general, I like this software. It does exactly what I want to do --- generation of panorama without manual intervention.
