When on vacation I always like to make panoramic images, because that gives a much nicer view of the landscape. And also because my camera, a Canon Powershot A70, has a nice setting for that. Until now I mainly used the software supplied with the camera to stitch the separate images together. Although the software works fine in most cases, I was looking for a replacement lately as I am using Linux more and more now for my non-FS related work. In the end I found some nice tools that seem to give an even better end result than the software supplied with the camera. So if you like to stitch panoramic images together as well you might want to take a look at Autopano and the Hugin. Autopano helps in finding the overlapping points in the photos, while Hugin is a nice GUI to make your final panoramic image.
