Seconded - there are other options, and the majority of people can't use the majority of features on Photoshop anyway (me included  :D ).


Lenny - try 'Hugin': it is a mad panoramic stitching program that is free. Definitely need to go through the tutorials and do a bit of trial and error, but it gives very good results.

all i want to do is set up a panoramic photo from loads of photos. A friend was going to install it for me but he has dissapered off the face of the earth and I have some great shots from Kili I want to mearge together.

As far as I know Photoshop is the best software for doing this.

Two options.  If you just want to work on stitching your photos from Kili, then download the free 30 day trial of Photoshop CS5.  That will allow you to stitch until your hearts content for a month.  The feature in Photoshop that allows you to do this is called Photomerge, and it's actually pretty good as long as you have decent source photos to work with.  As far as I am aware Photomerge is also in Adobe PS Elements, so you could always consider buying that software if you'd want to use it long term.  Again though I'd recommend downloading the trial version to make sure it does what you want.  If you do decide to buy the full version you can just enter the serial number into the trial version to unlock it.

The other option is to download a free photo stitching program.  There are several out there, although I've never tried any of them personally.  A quick Google suggests a program called Hugin.  Might be worth a try!

D'oh, should have read that properly before suggesting the exact same program :-[

Won't let you use it twice... tried that ;)

Although it will let you trial other Adobe products you might not have tried yet such as PS Elements or Lightroom.
