I’ve been using Hugin for a few years now – following a recommendation from Nat.

The best things about Hugin:

  • Hugin does a stunning job of stitching and blending pictures
  • Hugin is Open Source – so it’s free
  • Hugin is cross platform

So here’s my 5 minute how-to:

Get Hugin – download from

Install it.

Get autopano-sift to do the point management from

Install it.

Get enblend to do the excellent blending of photos once they are stitched together from

Install it.

You now need to tell Hugin to use autopano-sift and enblend.

File –> Preferences –> Autopano

Specify the location of Autopano-sift


File –> Preferences –> Enblend

Specify the location of enblend


That’s it.

Add your pictures; do the magic – and you have some great panoramic pictures.

I’ve found that experimenting is key; you can get great results with some patience.
