Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"A previous article described how to make small panoramas with
fotoxx. But when you get serious about panoramas on Linux, there's
really only one answer: Hugin.
"Named after a raven of Norse legend who brought information to
the god Odin, Hugin and the Panorama Tools libraries have been
around for years. But until recently they've been quite difficult
to use. That's no longer true: today, with just a few clicks,
anyone can create a spectacular panorama in Hugin.
"Hugin does a great job even if your initial photos aren't so
great. It can handle differences of exposure, rotation, and even
photos taken at different zoom levels or with different cameras.
It's so easy you'll want to go back over all those years of
vacation photos looking for all the panoramas you shot and never
got around to assembling."
