Tech Minute: Creating panoramic photos with your smartphone
With your smart phone's big screen and good lens, it's now easy to take gorgeous panoramic photographs that capture large scenes.
It you don't have the new iPhone 5 or the latest Apple operating system where panoramic functionality is included, here are CNET's two favorite panoramic apps that you can download.
When you activate Photosynth and start taking photos of the scenery, the screen will show a dotted line around the first photo you capture.
As a movie camera, left, right, up,
or down, the camera will beep when you need to hold it still to capture the next picture in the sequence.
I just love that handy guide.
When you're finished, the Apple stitch together your panorama in just a few seconds, and the best part of this app, it's totally free.
360 Panorama works on a similar way but without as much guidance for how to stitch the photos together.
Still, create beautiful spreads and share them to a gallery where you can also see other people's creations.
This app cost 99 cents but is well worth every penny.
