Microsoft Image Composite Editor & PTGui

Microsoft Image Composite Editor and PTGui are two tools that do the same job: they both stitch lots of photos together into one panoramic image (photogrammetry). This allows you to do what a 360 degree camera does, but using a mobile phone or standard digital camera.

We used PTGui to create a very high resolution 360 degree image of one of Bromley House’s rooms, using lots of images from a DSLR camera.

360 Degree Photography

Cameras like the Ricoh Theta or GoPro MAX capture panoramic photos of entire rooms and landscapes in one image. These are great for quickly creating digital copies of buildings, e.g. to preserve a moment in time, or can be turned interactive using some of the other tools on this list.

We used the Ricoh Theta to photograph the attics in Bromley House before the builders arrived.
