Creating and stitching together panoramic photos can be really tricky business. Photosynth makes the process so simple you don’t even need a tripod (or even a steady hand).

Photosynth stands a part from most other panoramic tools thanks to a super simple interface and a set of algorithms that seamlessly match up your photos even if you didn’t put the camera on a smooth panning tripod head. Photosynth does all the hard work of lining up, layering, and smoothing your images to create as big or as little of a panoramic as you want (some users create a basic 180 degree bank but you can do a complete 360 panorama if you have enough photos).

Photosynth is available as a Windows-based application or as an iOS application for on-the-go panorama creation.

If you’re interested in using the iOS version, check out the MakeUseOf via link for an in depth look at it.
