Windows 7 Photo Stitching gets two thumbs up


Spent the better part of Thursday at the Windows 7 boot camp at the Manila Ocean Park. Although I’ve been using Windows 7 since its beta (thanks to Johnny Benitez of Microsoft) and have bootcamp-ed it on my MacBook, it was still great to hear the “promise of a great OS” from Microsoft. So Windows 7 is finally here and will retail for P7,777.00 for the Home Basic Edition on November 7 for the consumer launch at the SM North EDSA.


One of the winning features of Windows 7 is the built in photo stitching application with the Live Gallery (sign up for a Live account already if you still don’t have one). The application recognizes and stitches together shots that may seem to be a part of a panorama. All we needed to do was highlight all the photos you want in on the panorama and allow the app to do the work for you. Photos that were added but don’t go with the stitch are automatically recognized and discarded. Very nice.
