Does anyone know if there is a (Canon) "PhotoStich" type program available for the Mac to make panoramic scenes? Can't seem to find one and certainly iPhoto wont do it.

There are a few apps on the App Store for making panoramas although only 1 gets favourable ratings which is Panoedit & that costs 10.49.You may want to look at Hugin which is free on windows and mac.There are several others including Arcsoft panorama maker but Hugin could be well worth a look.

I hope this is of some help regards Adrian

I use arcsoft panorama maker 4. which came with my panasonic camera.
You can buy the program seperately.
Works better that Adode`s stitch

Elements uses the same engine and interface as full fat shop or at least 11 does. Both it and PS are slower and have less control than PTGui.

When Photoshop works, I find it better, but it too often fails to line the images up (or at least one of them) - particularly iftheres not enough difference between the images (like seascapes). PTgui like you say is more flexible (just watch for blurring at the interfaces) - to get the most from it you need to understand control points.

Somhow I can't see Photoshop managing this

Thank you folks for all the advice. My wife had a good idea, look in the camera box for the original software CD's and of course they were there and on them was the Photostich program. Installed it to my Mac, a visit to Canon site "updated" it and all is well!
