    Just a heads up...

    About 2007 I used the copy of Canon Photostitch to create some panoramas. In 2012 after completing a trip to my dismay on MacOS10.5 my copy of Photostich no longer worked. I looked all over the internet for updates and in all most all of the cases they have been removed except for one place. I don't know if Canon still supports this software or not. I've not tested on Snow Leopard (my MBP), but it works like a champ on 10.5. For instillation it asked for my original install or my Canon Software CD.

    I'm still playing with Hugin to get a result I like, but Photostitch works wonderfully without having to make bunches of adjustments and control points.

    I wonder about this too if it will work on OSX Lion? I really love this on my Windows 7 PC.

    Have you tried autostitch under CrossOver or in a VM? It's a free stitcher (although there are commercial products available that use the technology under license) that does a good job of automatically sticking a selection of photos.

    Hard to say. I don't know if it uses Rosetta or not.

    Thanks. I'll check these out. Hugin is pretty impressive but more complicated, giving you more control. The amazing aspect of Photostitch is that it just works pretty well without any futzing on your part, pick two-10 photos and simply say stitch. I realize there could be situations where you want more control otherwise the end result could be so so.
