The best automatic panorama creator, for free.

I've previously used the panorama tool that comes with Canon cameras. It works, but to get the best results I needed to manually mark the areas of the photos to match up, making it very time consuming.

AutoStitch does exactly what it says on the tin - point it to a bunch of image files, and it creates a panorama. Job done. Just make sure to set a couple of options first: scale 100%; JPEG quality 100. Take a look at some of the examples on the website - stunning.

Here's a couple I did earlier. Be warned: if you click on them you'll get a full-sized version which, although fairly heavily compressed, is still pretty large.
