Welcome to the panorama tools 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 "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.
