PTGui for Mac combines similar images in order to create a new one that is of higher resolution. The software comes with a free trial and attempts to guide you through the process by breaking it down into three more or less easy steps. Even though the end result will vary wildly depending on the quality of the images used, the app allows for a high degree of manual fine-tuning, which helps with the removal of faults.

When launched, PTGui for Mac offers you video tutorials on how to get started with the app and how to take photos suitable for the software. After loading the images and analyzing their EXIF data, the application will attempt to find overlaps called "control points" and generate a single image. We were able to fine-tune those points and add new ones, although the app generally manages to align the images on its own. Other noteworthy actions include moving and rotating the image by a numerical value, blending images in various ways, and setting different projections such as a 360° panorama. When you're happy with the alignment, the app lets you choose one of five output formats as well as a resolution before generating the final image. The overall quality is lower than that of a panorama taken with a good-quality smartphone.

If you shoot with a camera that doesn't support a panorama mode, or have old images you'd like to stitch together, you should try PTGui for Mac. Although a camera's native panorama mode will yield generally better results, this app can still bring value by not restricting the panorama's shape.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of PTGui for Mac 9.1.9.

Full Specifications

What's new in version 11.21

  • Added support for the Insta360 EVO, QooCam and QooCam 8k cameras
  • New option in Lens Settings tab: Mirror Horizontally. If enabled, the image will be mirrored. Mirroring is done after shifting and cropping the image, so the orientation of lens shift and cropping are not affected. This was added to support cameras like QooCam, which generate mirrored image files.
  • Fixed: a black line could be visible in the images generated by Publish to Website, if tiles were generated at a smaller than optimum size
  • Fixed: artifacts ('blocky' images) on nvidia GPUs when using lens parameters with a fisheye factor very close to zero
  • Fixed: 'assert failed' error if the blending mode was set to Alpha Blending and the blender subsequently set to SmartBlend
  • Fixed: occasional crash while using GPU acceleration
