Microsoft has released Image Composite Editor (ICE), a technology behind Windows Live Photo Gallery advanced panoramic image stitching and Deep Zoom Composer for Silverlight. Matt Uyttendaele has the lowdown announcing this as the best image stitching tool shipped to date:

  • A GPU accelerated orientation adjustment tool.  Sometimes the automatic stitching software doesn't quite get the viewing direction correct, or perhaps you want to use a rectilinear projection instead of a cylindrical projection.  This new tool allows you to interactively make these adjustments. 
  • 360 blending support.  Our fast poisson blend technique now creates a seamless 360 blend.
  • Output to Photoshop layers.
  • Create an HD View web page.
  • Create a Silverlight Deep Zoom web page, including new 360 support in our Silverlight application.
  • Integration with both the Windows Shell and the next version of Windows Live Photo Gallery, so that you can quickly launch a new stitching project.
