Welcome to the PanoTools wiki

The wiki that aims to show you what you can do with the panorama tools and how to use them the best way.

The panorama tools are mainly used to build panoramic images from a set of overlapping images. The usability extends beyond "just" building panoramas by far though. You can, for instance, use them to render an average of multiple images to broaden the dynamic range of the images or average out noise. You can also build object movies with them, morph between images and much more. See panorama tools applications for an extensive list.

We hope you'll find this knowledge base interesting and useful. And if you feel something is missing, please feel free to add your knowledge. All pages on this wiki are editable by you. Let the FAQ page help you on your way. If you are not up to adding something yourself, please add a description of what you think is missing to the requested pages page, or maybe just add a comment to an article's discussion tab. However, you need an account and you need to login to edit.

Please see how to contribute for details. There is a list of articles that need enhancement.
