Todd Ogasawara has a great article from Digital Photography Hacks on making panoramic images from your cell phone. I really like how-tos like this, we all have digital cameras, camera phones and little projects like these make your technology investments a lot more fun. Besides the open source Panotools, anyone know of other free photo stitching tools?

    PTAssembler is a “Windows helper” program for Panotools. It is a GREAT help in aligning and creating panoramas. I shot the gigantic arch windo from inside Cincinnati’s Union Terminal with my Casio in four shots, rolling the camera as I went. This sort of shot would choke just about every panoramic tool. PTAssembler and Panotools created a great shot. (I’ll send copy to Make if you’d like to see the results.)
