PhotoFit Harmony, a Windows image-stitching application that allows you to turn individual images into an ultra-wide, panorama, or fish-eye image. The software can analyze a series of photographs and intelligently build enormous multi-row and multi-column images out of them. In addition to creating ultra-wide linear images, you can create 360-degree horizontal panoramas, vertical panoramas, or whole panoramas. You can even create dramatic 180-degree fish-eye images. Built-in focal-length detection, distortion cancellation, and perspective correction that take all the hard work out of piecing together individual pictures to form stunning images. Most stitching programs require photographs that have been created by a camera mounted on a tripod. PhotoFit Harmony will automatically compensate for the tilt and rotation of photographs that are taken with hand-held cameras, and stitch the photos together seamlessly.
