Photovista is absolutely amazing at stitching images. Yet to see a single
join and it even works well on old PC's. Last year I stitched 4x50MB scans
with it on an AMD K6 233 with 64MB of memory. I left it expecting it to take
almost forever, but accidently noticed it had finished 15 minutes later.
The 2 downsides are that it only stitches horizontally (but you can rotate
images to stitch in both directions), the other is perhaps more of a problem
is you have to output JPEGs. Ultimately I have tried about half a dozen
stitching programs, some are very poor, others work well most of the time,
but for me only PV seemed work everytime.
