Microsoft Image Composite Editor (Microsoft ICE) is a simple-to-use, free application for making panorama images out of photographs and video files. You can use it to easily create a panorama out of the series of stitched overlapping shots taken from a single point with a photo or video camera.
The panorama made with Microsoft ICE will combine all of the source images in full resolution. It can be saved in a variety of available formats — from JPEG and TIFF to HD View and Silverlight DeepZoom. You can also publish the panorama on the Microsoft Photosynth website directly from the software.
