Microsoft Updates “Image Composite” Panoramic Editor

Microsoft’s Image Composite Editor is an advanced panoramic image stitcher. The application takes a set of overlapping photographs of a scene shot from a single camera location and creates a high-resolution panorama incorporating all the source images at full resolution. The stitched panorama can be saved in a wide variety of formats, from common formats like JPEG and TIFF to multi-resolution tiled formats like Silverlight’s Deep Zoom and HD View (also newly upgraded).
What’s new in verison 1.1r1?
    • Fixed a bug that could cause the program to crash the second time it was run if there were non-English characters in the file paths of source our exported panoramas. (The "Options.xml" bug.)
    • Fixed a bug that allows more TIFF files to be properly opened
    • Changed autocrop to recognize 360 panos and provide a better crop rectangle in those cases
    • Removed Automatic from the Projection menu
    • Proper output of Silverlight 2 RTM Deep Zoom
    • Fixed a bug that could cause one input image to be dropped from a panorama seemingly at random
    • Added integration with the next version of Windows Live Photo Gallery

    What a great piece of software, I’m glad I saw this entry a couple days ago.  I’ve been in Astoria, Oregon the past two weeks, and have taken almost 200 pictures, and on a few I’ve used this program to make some great panorama pictures.  Thanx for this entry on your blog!
