    Any suggestion for a good, free photo stitching software?

    +1 for Microsoft ICE (Image Composite Editor) - free from Microsoft on Microsoft Research Image Composite Editor (ICE) I've used it a bit - works really well. Just be sure to keep the exposure for each of the shots the same.

    A complete numb-nut needs help!

    Hiya, Have you tried Google's free photo editor 'Picasa'? It doesn't touch the original files, is easy to use, and allows you to 'export' the result to a JPEG in any size/quality that is appropriate... Just be careful when installing that you don't allow it free reign to all...

    Is There An Idiot's Guide to Oly 'myset'

    Although written for E-30 and called 'Custom Reset', the operation is the same. Have a look at: wrotniak.net: Customizing the E-30 You initially 'set' to the setting currently in the camera once (and for the mode P/A/S by the way), then you can reset to these settings at any time. Hope...

    Hi from Istanbul

    Merhaba! Visited Istanbul last September and spent a few days there before touring down the Med coast. Enjoyed every bit of the visit, and found Istanbul a fascinating city. Here is on of my photos from the trip - this was taken while on a ferry, on the EPL1 with ZD 40-150+MMF2. Also...

    How to delete Same images in Picasa

    Hi Herman. If you go to the menu 'Tools' > 'Experimental' , you will find an option to search for duplicates. I believe this is done by name, and will order by folder. I file by date and event, so have a folder per month (named as YYMM - eg 1008 is August 2010), and any special events or...

    How to delete Same images in Picasa

    Hi Herman, I would suggest you 'right click' on those you don't want to see in the Picasa in the folder and the click on 'Hide'. This will ensure you don't delete the original image. It sounds like you have the same image file in multiple folders, or you may have RAW and JPG in same folder...

    How's weather?

    Olympus 70-300mm on E-P(L)1/2 - can this be done?!

    Another trick - If you aren't too concerned about having a movie button on the EPL-1, you can re-designate it to swap between AF and MF - this is what I have done. Using the movie button gives you fast change between MF&AF. Then in MF mode, the AEL gives me a single AF shot (as per Wrotniak...
