    My canon photo stitch and panorama 4 no longer work now I have installed Lion!

    "because PowerPC applications are no longer supported." according to my Macbook pro.....

    What is available to me?
    I stitch a lot.
    Is there a plug-in for Aperture 3 that achieves this?

    Hugin would be a logical first step, since it's very capable and also free.

    But there are many programs available, including Autopano, PTGUI, Photoshop, etc.

    Thanks,

    I've installed Hugin and I find the interface pretty impenetrable.

    Free is good for me but I was hoping someone might have good news re- "photo stitch" or a similar program....or an Aperture plug-in?

    there is an update for it for it for Lion I think?

    If i remember right (and thats by no means a certanty these days :( ) its only available on new camera's on the disk though...you should be able to find an iso of it on some of the shadier parts of the web...

    ..alternatively (and somewhat strangely) it was available on the Austrialian Canon site as a download...but not on any of the others....????

    Thats where I downloaded the updated photostich from..I just can remember of it was pre lion or post lion???

    My results with Autopano are much better than with PS, and happen in about 1/8 the time.

    another vote for photoshop. I think it does by far the best job. it is very slow however.

    A few years ago I downloaded all the free trials of all the Pano programs and tested with my worst case panos. In the end I went with PTGui and never looked back. Even Photoshop CS5 is not as good unless you did everything perfectly. I suggest doing what I did and test them all with your worst set then decide.
