    I wanted to stitch some photos I took today, but Canon Photostich crashes every time it is launched, under 10.6

    Canon's camerawindow also fails to load. Me thinks Canon have one or two problems with their software and Snow Leopard.

    I rang Canon support on Friday to see if it was just me or a known problem. The chappy I spoke to had not heard of any issues but a quick google search seems to suggest that a lot of people are having problems with SL and Canon's software.

    Fingers crossed they release an update soon.

    I know Leopard broke the ability for my 5D to download images straight from the camera (I figured out a decent workaround), eventually it was fixed on an update from Apple (think around 10.5.5).

    Currently only my Macbook has Snowleopard, and keeping fingers crossed it seems to be all o.k. That said I dumped Camerawindow and just use Eos Utility instead.

    Me too

    I updated ImageBrowser/CameraWindow to v 6.4.1 and while ImageBrowser will run fine on 10.6, Photostitch and CameraWindow do not.

    The Photostitch viewer works fine, however.

    Also I have a older Canon camera that uses CameraWindowDVC instead of CameraWindow-CameraWindowDVC works well on 10.6.

    For stitching images I'll be using Photoshop Elements 6.

    Photostitch does a terrible job. Try the open source project hugin instead.

    What is this "open source project hugin"? Just curious since I downloaded "Calico." This one is not free, however :D

    Here's what you need to know:

    I thought I'd mention, I just gave the pre-compiled binary for hugin 2009.0.2, but it's not quite working right for me, so I reverted to Hugin 0.8.0.

    Canon Photostitch 3.2.4.25 compatible with Mac OS X 10.6

    Just to update the topic,

    Canon have released a newer version of Photostitch for Mac which is compatible with Mac OS X 10.6. The version number is 3.2.4.24. Unfortunately, they have not had the decency to make this available as a downloadable update for current Canon camera owners. To date, it is ONLY available on some of the software DVDs included with newer Canon cameras.

    Fortunately, there are images of the Canon EOS 7D software DVD floating around from which you can install Photostitch. E.g. here:

    http://www.megaupload.com/?d=GW41Z4WT

    The installer allows you to do a custom install, so you can just choose to install Photostitch and not all the other utilities which you don't want or need.

    Canon Photo Stitch

    Thank you "ludicrousgib"

    I was able to download the Photo Stitch installer from the link, <http://support-au.canon.com.au/P/sea...s=Mac%20OS%20X>, that you provided and successfully install.

    This after the canon Email support told me that the installer was not downloadable and that I should contact Canon Support on Monday for more details and pricing info.
