Free picture merging software

Morning all

Does anyone know of a free piece of software which will enable me to merge two pictures together to form one long picture i.e. I took two photos of a large scene and want to put them together to make one large scene?

Cant you do that with MS Paint ?

Open the 1st pic, copy it. Open the 2nd pic, paste next to it.
Or create a new blank pic equal to the size of the two together and then paste both into the new one.

Thanks Yoda Knight

What about if I want to overlap the two photos to get continuity?

dunno what other FREE software to advise, although you might get a trial version of something you could use. Try Paintshop Pro from JASC or Corel Draw

Hi, have not used it myself, but have seen lots of good reports on here - might do what you want.

ps - I have PhotoSuite (not free) which does do what you want and much more.

Not free but I use Ulead Cool 360. Makes panoramic photo's easy. Has auto stitching (up to a point) but very easy to use. You can dowload it from click here

or try the 15 day free trial.

What you are asking is beyond the scope of most image editors without a lot of work, because hues are certain to differ in the adjoining photos. Software that does the job properly without any hassle is very expensive. I use this one click here

You can do it PSP using the method suggested by Yoda Knight, but, as I said, you will have a lot to do to make the resulting image look natural.

PhotoSuite does it very easily - I have merged five photos seamlessly to create one panorama.

And I am no expert. Cheers.

I can't comment on Photosuite because I've never used it, but to be honest even Photoshop requires that a lot of editing be done when merging is attempted. Of course it can be done, its just that Stitcher does it much more easily.
