Trying Windows Live

florida 031 Stitch I finally got around to installing Windows Live today.  It has two features that I was really interested in.  The first is the photo stitcher.  I had a series of photos from our vacation last summer in Florida that I had been meaning to stitch together.  So I threw them into the blender and the above panorama is what came out (click for a larger image).  I really didn't do anything.  They were in a random order and the software put them in the right order and stitched them together.  It is by no means perfect, but it was probably as good as I would have done manually.


The second utility I wanted to try is the Live Writer.  I am actually writing this entry using the software.  I first noticed its usefulness when I added the above photo.  There were all sorts of settings along the right side when I selected the photo.  So far I am impressed.  I'll try it out for awhile and see how I like it.


For now, I need to finish some paperwork...
