PRESS RELEASE: Smart And Simple Tool For Making Panoramic Views Of Your Favorite Sights And Picturesque Landscapes
FirmTools announces new Panorama Composer 3
MOSCOW, Russia - Wednesday, April 4, 2007 - FirmTools announced today the release of version 3 of Panorama Composer, the highly anticipated tool to generate a 360 degree panoramic photo out of several snapshots and save it as a jpeg, html or exe file. Thanks to the self-explanatory user interface and enhanced graphics engine, the application simplifies photo pan creation for amateurs and provides professionals with extended customization options to ensure the best quality of the processed pan.
Panorama Composer 3 features an exceptionally well-designed program interface that will easily guide you through all three steps of pan generating from adding and arranging jpeg images to stitching them into a solid photo pan. With the unique blending algorithm developed by FirmTools research department, the application can make a high quality pan out of photos with an intersection starting from 2% which is a leap forward compared to 50% overlapping in other competitive products. Analyzing the blending images, Panorama Composer enhances image focusing and eliminates photo distortion. A built-in additional configuration utility allows users to forget about common photo focusing defects, small intersection problems and using a tripod for making "steady" pictures as, choosing from several sets of parameters, they can successfully fix all quality-related problems. The resulting pan may be saved as a jpeg file, an html file or as a self-starting postcard in the exe-format. Simplicity plus innovation make Panorama Composer and the whole FirmTools family of products the ultimate digital imaging software for digital camera owners.
