Thanks Bob,

Thanks. Very interesting - certainly masses of detail there. Is that the same program used for huge high res stitched landscapes?

Yup, its just HUGIN and then GIMP for post processing. For landscapes, parallax is not a big deal, but for the "little planet" and these very close macropano shots its a huge deal, so more attention to the setup of the camera is needed, using MUP, and manual focus helps get the most out of it.

The IIP tile server, and IIPMOOViewer are all things a reasonably smart person can put on any server or their home PC acting as a server.

Creating the tiled, pyrimidal TIFF files required by IIP is easy starting with any TIFF and using Image Magick 's convert command.

That's the whole tool chain for both these and the little planets. The Subject --> K5 --> HUGIN --> GIMP --> IM's convert --> IIP Server --> IIP MOO Viewer --> Your eyeballs.
