Cool ICE from Microsoft


Recently I went to the top of Lion Rock in Hong Kong, stood on the head of the lion and enjoyed the great view there. Certainly photos were shot to create a panorama, I have did that once (check it out at my blog post here) on that night using Autostitch. The result is not bad.

I then come up with another tool from Microsoft Research named ICE - Image Composite Editor and created another panorama. The result is impressive. It is easy to use and I can have some minor tweak on the photo. It also allow users to chop the result photo (automatically or manually), which is really convenient - I mean most users does chop those black edges away from their panorama.

Here's the result photo:
360° Panorama at Lion Rock, Hong Kong (2)

Unlike last time, I didn't tune the color. But not bad already, right? You are recommended to view it in original resolution. If it is too large for your browser, feel free to download and view it in your favorite image browser :D
