Panorama 360 is the highest-quality panorama app for you, generating beautiful wide-angle panoramas of up to 8000x6000 pixels, with no visible seams.
Panorama360 is the only panorama app that can stitch photos in any order or arrangement, including vertical, horizontal, or mixed arrangements. It achieves superb image quality by stitching full-resolution camera images.
Panoramic photos are a great way to showcase sweeping landscapes. By shooting a series of overlapping images and combining them on your computer, you can take in a much wider angle of view. This technique also means you don’t need an expensive wide-angle lens – your 18-55mm standard lens is fine. The Panorama360 app combines several photographs into one continuous image. For example, you can take 3-20 overlapping photographs of a city skyline, and then merge them into a panorama.
Learn how to make a good panorama photo:
Setting up for your shoot, a stable position to take your panoramas from is important. Once you find your potential spot and set your camera up, rotate it to the extreme right and left edges that you want to include in your photo and make sure that there isn’t anything that is too big of a visual or physical obstruction. Something else to keep in mind is to try to set up so that the full range of your shot does not show shadows from you or your camera.
When you have the settings you want and have taken your extreme left pictures it is time to grab a reference point in the viewfinder about 20%-30% away from the right side of your viewfinder. You do this because you are going to swivel the camera so that this reference point is at the far left but still in the viewfinder so that there is some overlap between your photos.
As far as overlap is concerned, you are shooting digitally so snap away, overlap 30-50% if you want, but err on the side of overlapping too much. If you don’t overlap enough, as Panorama360 app attempts to blend the shots it will not have enough of a fingerprint to blend well.
Now simply repeat this process until you come to the extreme right end of your desired panoramic shot:
1. Choose a reference point about 20-30% away from the right edge of the viewfinder
2. Swivel the camera to the right until your reference point is at the left edge of the viewfinder
3. Take the picture
4. Repeat until you have taken photos that cover the entire area you wish to capture in your panorama
Make your panorama:
Now you are ready to ‘stitch’ your photos together. Please open each photo that you wish to add to the panorama in Panorama360 app. Click OK button. Now Panorama360 app goes into action. It analyzes and blends the photos. This could take several minutes.
Go ahead and save your picture and you have a panorama!
Blend Images Together: to have Panorama360 attempt to seamlessly blend exposure and color.
Vignette Removal: to correct for any natural lens vignetting (darkening) at the edges.
Geometric Distortion Correction: to repair any lens distortion (often caused when shooting at a wider angle).

Crashes when I try to load photos
I was optimistic for this program, but it crashes every time I try to load my own photos. I click the “load your own” button and the window i can choose from opens for about one second, then it crashes the program. Not impressed — at least THIS should work! (Using latest update of Yosemite)
Quick & Easy & Effective
I have pictures of a hiking trail in the woods I wanted to piece together and looked at all the app store options and decided on this one based on price.
I imported 7 busy pictures ( trees, leaves on ground, saplings, sky, etc…) that I took on a small burner cell phone. I picked middle grade quality and cylinder output and the program made a panorama. All in 5 minutes!
This app has 9 picture output options (spherical, round out 360, circle in 360, flat, cylindrical, compressedrectilinear, panini, mercator and transversemercator), 3 speed settings (faster, high quality and best quality) and 2 exposure settings (exposure compensator and source exposure) for your outputting joy.
When your panorama is finished, you have the standard simple save with options concept which worked well.
The app clearly asked that you overlap your pictures 30-50% and since I took my pic a week ago I did not overlap that amount. This caused the app to reject one output option (flat at high quality, but best quality worked!) and the app flat out quit on me when I tried another output (panini at high quality).
But even with pics which were not overlapping, the app created several panoramas.
Bottom line: I want to put together images in a panorama for personal joy and this app is a quick, easy and effective option.
Simple and quick
For the price, this is an excellent app. Photos do need to be photographed well. They must be lined up. I sometimes stitch newspaper articles together after scanning them in several pieces. If they are not scanned at the same angle, they will not stitch in this app. But when everything works right, you will get a very good panoramic photo.
