AutoStitch Panorama for iPad App Review
Sometimes it is not enough to take a mere photograph of a view. Sometimes a location is so stunningly vast and epic that it is just too wide to squeeze into the size of a regular photo frame without stepping back several miles in order to capture the full view at once. However this is not always possible and it also results in a lot of empty space above and below the view that takes some of the majesty away from it. Fortunately we now have panorama features on our iOS devices, which allow us to take several photos and then stitch them together to create one big photo that captures the glory of the original view. However the quality of these panoramas can vary and the only way you can guarantee consistent quality is to pay a little extra for a specialist application. Fortunately such an app is available and also very affordable. AutoStitch Panorama is available now from the App Store for just $2.99.
This version of AutoStitch Panorama is not its original incarnation and there is in fact a version available in the App Store for $1.99, which does actually work on the iPad but it is optimised for the iPhone 5 so if you really want the best quality on your iPad, you should spend that extra dollar for the superior version. As its name suggests, AutoStitch Panorama is an app designed for taking panoramic photos and while it still requires a steady hand from you during the initial photo-taking phase, it is the “Auto-” part that results in a superior, more natural-looking image.
The app is incredibly simple to use anyway but just in case you need the extra help, step by step instructions guide you along as you go but the interface is intuitive and self-explanatory so you shouldn’t have any problems with it. All you have to do is point and press the relevant button to capture the image. When it comes to taking the next picture to join onto that image, there is a green outline that helps you line it up smoothly and signifies when the camera is in the optimal position. Additional help comes from orange and red outlines that warn you when you are out of line so it is in fact very difficult to make a mistake.
This simplicity is not just relegated to the photos and when it comes to the editing phase, you will also get through the process with ease. This is where the Auto part really comes into play as the app will adjust the exposure and cropping of the individual images automatically to ensure they all match up. However there is also an option to make manual adjustments too if you so desire, while the individual images can also be saved for future reference.
Overall AutoStitch Panorama is an excellent app that looks a lot better on the iPad’s screen than the slightly cheaper version. If you are into photography and need something to help you make the perfect panoramic photos, this could be the one you need.
