Description

Creates a panorama of up to 16 images using via perspective transformation between images with overlap. The camera view aids in taking photos with overlap of about 33%.

Panorama is a Camera app alternative for photo stitching that avoids curvature of horizontal edges in photos. (See first screenshot for an illustration.) An additional feature not available in the Camera app:

Panorama enables the creation of rectangular panoramas: 

The 'Build View' provides a stitcher for an arbitrary set of photos that have overlapping regions for horizontal or vertical stitching (For vertical select 'Build Vertical' to rotate input by 90º left and then result by 90º right, since the stitcher only stitches left to right). 

A rectangular panorama is vertical & horizontal stitching combined. (See the third video preview titled 'Rectangular Panorama' for an example.)

In this way you can build two vertically registered panoramas, and then use those to build a horizontally registered panorama (or vice verse): as long as you are careful the photos are aligned for registration.

The camera view provides an overlay view of the previous photo taken so that the next photo can be properly aligned with the previous photo. This is important for proper registration when stitching the photos together.

You can create vertical panoramas also: to do this you need first TURN ON the option to 'lock orientation' in the Settings view.

Then the camera guide works as expected for taking your photos for a vertical panorama: In other words you need to prevent the camera view from taking photos in landscape mode. Then the registration guide will appear at the BOTTOM of the view, as opposed to the left side.

• Use the integrated image editor, in the options menu for all panoramas in the gallery. Enhance, add text, crop and more.

Image editing options: Enhance (Hi-Def, Illuminate, Color Fix), crop, rotate, brightness, contrast, saturation, sharpness, draw, text, redeye, whiten, blemish and meme.

• Build custom panoramas or creatively blend images into photo montages from the camera roll of Photos using the Build pane.

• Use the Build pane to merge two or more vertical overlapping panoramas to easily create 2x2 or 3x3 rectangular panoramas.

• Shoot a scene and save the photos into the gallery for merging later if you prefer. This allows you to save time and battery during a shoot.

• Undo and redo a panorama in the gallery to try different settings or options, such as exposure matching or merge quality.

• High resolution of the 2 and 3 image stitchers essentially doubles and triples your camera's field of view.

• As you shoot pictures they are collected into a sliding pocket drawer, so you can review what you shot at any time, and delete to retake photos.

• Use the "film roll" button in the camera pane to save all the photos currently in the drawer to the gallery, without merging them.

• If you cancel the current merge, you can always resume it anytime from the gallery.

• Panoramas are saved to the gallery automatically when completed, and optionally also to the Photos library.

• In the gallery any saved panorama can be resumed.

• You can undo panoramas, separating them into a film roll of the original photos. Originals can always be saved to the Photos library.

• Export and manually preprocess the photos in your photo shoot in any other image editor, then reload from the Photos library and stitch them together in the Build pane.

• Adds location data to your panoramas so you remember exactly where you shot them. View the location where the panorama was made on a map in the gallery.

• In the gallery you can always undo and then redo a stitch, say for experimenting with different options or image editing.

• Time consuming stitching can be deferred by saving your photo shoots in the gallery.

• Run in the background as you use your device with other apps or put the screen to sleep with the hold button. You'll be notified when the stitch is done.

• The photo alignment guide ensures you properly align your photos for the best stitching results, and facilitates acquiring photos for the Mac version of Panorama.

What’s New

Version 2.0.1

Maintenance update:

• In the Build View an alert has been added to remind you that the option to build vertical needs to be selected before adding images to stitch. (Since images are rotated on load when the build vertical option is on, not at the time of stitching).

• The Options View from the Camera View has been enhanced by changing the background color of some items for better visibility.

Previous updates:

NEW. In the Gallery a new option to resume a panorama in the Build pane is provided: Tap on a panorama for an array of options. When Resume is selected you now have the option to continue the panorama in the Camera (as before) or the Build pane.

NEW. In the Build pane you can also now change the width of the actual overlap between the photos for stitching. It is specified as a percentage of image width (or height if building a vertical panorama).

When stitching images in the Camera pane the expected overlap width is about 33% since that is how the size of the camera guide is set. But now in the Build pane you can stitch images that may overlap more or less than 33%.

This is useful for stitching photos taken from other sources or that have different overlap.

The ability to resume in the Build pane is also useful if you want to re-do a panorama in the Gallery that was created using the app's camera view with guide.

Fixed: After app relaunch the overlay guide in the camera view was not displaying after resuming a merged panorama from the Gallery.

Fixed: The quality and exposure matching controls in Settings have been modified to display better in iOS 13.

New: In the build view the 'Rotate 90º' switch has been renamed to 'Build Vertical', and when this option is ON the input images will be rotated LEFT 90º and the stitched result will be rotated 90º RIGHT (new). (This is done because the image stitcher stitches images left to right assuming that the registration overlap region is on the right and left sides of the images.)

Michael, a "Jesus Freak" ,

It works...BUT...

I tried this app, and it does easily take decent long-distance panoramas (I tried it in my neighborhood)...

BUT, it has these INCREDIBLY ANNOYING ADS that CONSTANTLY pop up the entire time... and when you try to click the "back" button at the top, it's very easy to accidentally click on the ad right above instead (which I did several times), and I'd have to close the ad and then reload the app.

It's BEYOND annoying to say the least... I deleted it in about 10 minutes, and plan to look for another app.

GET WITH IT APPLE... I may not have a new iPhone 6 with panorama built in, but my perfectly-functional iPhone cost enough as it was! You should provide all of your loyal customers ALL of your apps at least AD-FREE (or at least tell us which apps are "laced" with ads, so people aren't unwillingly hassled).

IF NOT for the ads, I'd have rated it 4-5 stars.

Works well

This app has the best image stitching algorithm of all the panorama apps I've tried. The tips it gives while merging are very useful and the app provides detailed help topics. (The help topics are't available offline, unfortunately.) The latest update seems to have optimized the algorithm quite significantly, since before the update, the merging process took much longer. I recommend experimenting with the settings (there are a lot of them) to find the best combination.

The best part of this app, I think, is the ability to postpone image merging. Since merging still takes at least a minute, and even longer for pictures with complicated objects, (like trees) you can take the pictures you want, tap the thumbnail of your last picture to save your current pictures, and start the merger later.

This app is definitely worth the short time it takes to download.

Excellent, Use it all the time.

This app is so easy to use and makes great panoramas. The other apps I have tried distort the stitch photos and make it look unreal, like I photographed the scene with fish-eyed lens.

This app doesn't do that, and produces much more realistic panoramas. It is highly recommended to try it, and take note of the tips it gives in the "Merge" screen. In particular, one tip that helped a lot was the one about rotating the camera to better align the successive photos.

Thank you! At last an app that produces "natural" stitching.
