Easy Panoramas with Arcsoft
by George Schaub

Panorama fans who do not have software that can easily handle the task might well consider Arcsoft’s Panorama Maker 4. This venerable software company offers many inexpensive and easy-to-use programs for a variety of imaging tasks. You can check out the lot of them at www.arcsoft.com. Panorama Maker 4 Pro is available for $39.99 on their website or in stores, or $29.99 for those who already have a previous version of that program. The program allows for vertical, horizontal, tiled and even 360 degree stitches. I stuck with the traditional horizontal format.

Digital Help
by David B. Brooks

We are including a long response section from David Brooks’ Digital Help column in the newsletter this month as we wanted to get this information to you as soon as possible. His response is to numerous letters he has recently received on how to get prints that match the on-screen image. We found his response very informative. We have included a sampling of some of the queries as well. Perhaps you face the same dilemma.

Noise reduction can be useful at high ISO settings or with long exposure times. But there is some debate as to whether this should be applied in camera when the exposure is made (in fact some cameras automatically apply NR at ISO 400 and above unless you turn it off) or later using Photoshop or some third-party software.
Please comment briefly on an NR workflow you have found effective.
