Panorama Stitcher help

Panorama Stitcher is an application for combining (also know as “stitching”) multiple photographic images into one composite image with higher resolution. The stitching process is automatic and relies on similarities in overlapping photo regions to properly align images. The app has support for two most common types of source image arrangements: spherical and planar. Spherical is a panorama taken by a rotating camera. Planar alignment method assumes the source images are taken by moving along a plane, like scans, microscope images, aerial maps etc.
