Microsoft Image Composite Editor is an advanced panoramic image stitcher made by the Microsoft Research division of Microsoft Corporation.[1]

The application takes a set of overlapping photographs of a scene shot from a single camera location and creates a high-resolution panorama incorporating all the source images at full resolution. The stitched panorama can be saved in a wide variety of file formats, from common formats like JPEG and TIFF to multi-resolution tiled formats like HD View and Silverlight DeepZoom, as well as allowing multi-resolution upload to the Microsoft Photosynth site.
