PTGui 9.1 released

Today we've released version 9.1 of PTGui and PTGui Pro. Several handy new features have been added in this release:

The new Align to Grid tool makes it easy to stitch gigapixel panoramas using a motorized panoramic head. Also, image alignment for wide angle images (and fisheye images in particular) has been improved. Further there are lots of usability improvements such as more context menus, a new 'ghost cursor' and the ability to generate control points in a rectangular area.

For an overview of the new features see What's new in PTGui 9.1.

Prague in 18 Gigapixels

Jeffrey Martin of 360cities.net used PTGui to create world's largest spherical panorama:



This image is currently (as of 12/2009) the largest spherical panoramic photo in the world. It is 192,000 pixels wide and 96,000 pixels tall. That’s 18.4 billion pixels, or 18.4 gigapixels! When it’s printed, it will be 16 meters (53 feet) long at regular photographic quality (300dpi). It was shot in early October 2009 from the top of the Zizkov TV Tower in Prague, Czech Republic in collaboration with Prague 3 town hall. A digital SLR camera and a 200mm lens were used. Hundreds of shots were shot over a few hours; these shots were then stitched together on a computer over the following few weeks.

View the panorama at 360cities.net.
