Image Composite Editor (ICE) is a powerful application provided by the Microsoft Corporation. ICE is a reliable utility that lets you stitch different photos together in order to create out of them amazing panoramic images .
In fact, it is one of the most popular and widely-appreciated image stitching and panorama creating tool on the market. One of the main arguments for this is the program's easy-to-use interface that allows even complete beginners to use the tool without any problem. This effective editor quickly guides users through the stitching process, step by step.
Another reason why everybody, including me, likes Image Composite Editor is the fact that it’s a powerful, feature-rich, comprehensive, multifunctional tool. It can use a series of overlapping pictures (preferably all of them taken from a single scene) to generate a high-resolution seamless panorama but it can also use a panning video (stop-motion action overlaid on the background included) to generate the panorama. The created panoramas can be saved in a large variety of image formats, including JPEG, TIFF, and Photoshop’s PSD, shared with friends or even viewed in 3D. Many other cool features and functions are also available.
Also, ICE is highly appreciated because it comes free of charge.
To sum it all up, Image Composite Editor (ICE) is a great tool worth being at least tried out.
