Hugin is an opensource graphical user interface (GUI) for Panorama tools.

Like other GUI front-ends, hugin provides an easy-to-use unified point-and-click interface to a whole range of other command-line tools including:

The Hugin project's mission is not only to provide a powerful GUI, but also to provide opensource replacements for the small number of closed source components of Panorama tools, especially PTStitcher. A PTStitcher replacement, called nona has been developed, supporting its most important features.

Among the many flexible Hugin workflow options, it is possible to use increased tonal range data in a 16bit workflow with hugin or work entirely with high dynamic range images such as floating-point TIFF from start to finish in a HDR workflow with hugin.

Hugin components

The following tools are part of the hugin suite:

More information, documentation and tutorials are available on the project website.

User interface

Development

Hugin is Open Source, and like every community-developed software very much dependent on voluntary contributions of resources. If you have coding skills, you are welcome to look at the source code and contribute to it. Even if you don't have coding skills, you most likely have some skills that the project could use and you are more than welcome to contribute your time. The tasks requiring attention change frequently and so do the required skillset and resources. Find more about the development process.
