There are many things I could tell you about this tool, but then this review will be to technical and, more importantly, to long! To be short …. hugin is a great stitching tool. Install it, make sure you have a few overlapping photo’s to practice with and go to the tutorial site to play with hugin yourself.
When using hugin for the first time, use this tutorial.
My personal experience with hugin is mostly great. I made few panorama photo’s consisting of 3 normal photo’s and every time hugin stitches them together flawlessly. Even at 100% zoom I just can’t see any wrong overlapping. As a matter of fact, I can’t see where one picture ends and the other starts. It’s truly magic!
I have to say, though, I also had some stitches that went wrong. I haven’t yet found out why, but hugin screwed up a few times. In one case I wanted to stitch two photo’s together, but instead of stitching them below one and another hugin stitched them next to each other. But most of the time hugin works perfect! As you can see by the exclamation marks I’m very excited about hugin. But don’t believe my word for it, try it out yourself.
