Creating panoramic stitches in the Windows Live Photo Gallery is quick and easy. Using technology from Microsoft Research, we’ve been able to integrate panoramic stitching into the Live Photo Gallery in a way that’s fast and automatic. Check out the following screencast for a walkthrough of how to stitch a number of photos together into one composite.

When taking photos to create a panorama, remember to have at least 30% overlap between shots to get the best results. Look for unique features in whatever you are photographing that you can use as common elements between neighboring photos. If you are stitching a large number of high resolution photos, the task may take a while since it’s quite computationally intense, but the results are worth the wait!
