Gigapan Stitch Version 2.3 is Now Available

Stitch is updated to version 2.3 and now uses the BRISK image feature detector. Feature detectors contribute to image alignment by locating distinctive image features such as dots, corners, and crossings in the regions of image overlap.

Note for Mac users: Stitch 2.3 requires Mac OS 10.6 or higher. If you have Mac OS 10.4 or 10.5 you can upgrade your OS and use Stitch 2.3 or, if you already have Stitch 2.2 or earlier, you may continue to use that.

We’d like to hear your feedback!

Thank you,
Becky Leung

My feedback is that you didn’t tell us where to get it like you did with 2.2.

Uh oh, I may have screwed up. Is this a free upgrade?
I purchased my Gigapan in July and got the key for Stitch 2.1
I just downloaded 2.3, but it appears to be a trial version for the .efx.

Now what?
Will my old key work?
(guess there’s one way to find out!)

When I start up Stitch I get a message that there is an update here:

But this doesn’t work. Where can I find the update?

Thank you in advance

its disappointing to see that its not exactly made clear that you have to pay for this upgrade. i suppose a free one is an update rather than upgrade?
i, like most, do this as a hobby. my batteries dont last long and are expensive, the backpack to put it all in is expensive. is the software upgrade really worth paying A hundred plus bucks for? i think not. i dont like companies that try to slug you more money and seem to try and hide this..it should all be perfectly transparent… or i will find another hobby.

Typically it would state on that ‘you have x days to register screen’ that the program is registered under key xxxx however stitch efx is a different key that needs purchasing.

Seems GigaPan bundles both into one package and depending on which key you enter/purchase, you can have either program.

This has occured each time that I have upgraded the GigaPan software (just upgraded to 2.3 myself and confirmed above is still the case that stich is using my old key and efx is still needing purchase if I want that after 14 days).

The battery issue is my biggest complaint on my pro as they just don’t seem to hold a charge worth anything after the first year is up. For the backpack, I don’t like the original for the pro so it is used to house old lenses in the closet. I utilize a National Geographic shoulder bag for the GigaPan unit and a Nat Geo backpack for gear (can see how much this sucker can hold on my flicker acct http://www.flickr.com/photos/generaltoner/90961…).

I do agree that most of us seem to do this as a hobby and it can be expensive, but I haven’t really found anything in the photography hobby is cheap.

Stitch is free (including updates) and comes with 2 license keys if you register your GigaPan unit.

Stitch.EFX is a paid upgrade. The features of Stitch.EFX not available in Stitch are: Color Adjustments, Save Projected Images, Image Rearrange.

If you don’t require these features in your workflow, there is no need to spend $149 for the upgrade. There are workarounds as well such as editing and color correcting using Photoshop.
