Hugin – Create your own panoramic photos : So, did you have a good summer this year? Awesome, even? Perhaps, you came back with lots of pictures of the same landscape and tried awkwardly with Photoshop to get panoramic views out of them but got dubious and disappointing results? Well, enough is enough! You should download Hugin right now! An app that works on both Windows and OS X and lets you bring together many pictures into one single and large image in a very simple way. Hugin offers you the function of opening a series of photos, finding the Exif data to know the settings of your camera when you took the photos, and you can even edit them (contrast, crop, resize, etc.). Then, Hugin automatically place control points on the pictures to match the best one. Once you’ve made the necessary adjustments, you finally have to choose the settings for exporting (exposure compensation, file format, etc.). Wait… and OMG! It’s already done! You will get a nice big panoramic image that you can use as desktop background, play with 3D software, or just have it printed on canvas to decorate your living room. To sum it up, I would say that Hugin is very powerful, with lots of little extras that can confuse new users, but overall most settings are automatically calculated, so it’s still accessible to everyone.


Hugin is an easy to use cross-platform panoramic imaging toolchain based on Panorama Tools. With Hugin you can assemble a mosaic of photographs into a complete immersive panorama, stitch any series of overlapping pictures and much more.

Although Hugin is essentially a panorama stitcher, like other GUI front-ends it has a range of advanced features. Among the Hugin workflow options, it is possible to correct exposure, Vignetting and White balance between photos; generate HDR, exposure fused or focus stacked output from bracketed photos; or use 16bit and HDR input data natively. Photos can be digital or scanned, and taken with any kind of camera. A full range of lenses are supported, from simple cameraphones to obscure fisheye lenses. Hugin supports various output projections including a range of spherical, cartographic, and camera projections.

Hugin supports panoramas taken with multiple rows of photos, with or without bracketing. Bracketed photos can be handheld, taken using a DSLR bracketing function, or as consecutive panoramas shot at different EV exposure levels. Hugin can produce successful panoramas shot with cameras that always shoot using auto-exposure and auto-whitebalance.

Hugin also supports the use of masks which means that you can exclude parts of images you don't want to appear in your panoramas, or include parts of image you specifically want to appear in your panoramas.
