For us, this makes a huge difference, as we are now able to get high quality panoramas with just two shots. Also, the batch processing interface is really helpful and intuitive.”

Rob Maw, “Just downloaded your beta Version for Mac. I must say the improvements you¹ve made are marked, you must be really pleased with the results. I¹m most impressed with the batch stitching facility, much more user friendly, it eliminates what has to be said is a tedious task when stitching many panoramas manually. Excellent job!! I found the software easy to navigate and think the new layout, once familiar, will prove much quicker to use. I must congratulate your programmers, the software will be a pleasure to work with.”
