First you need to take the shots you wish to stitch together into a panorama.
One way to do this is to use a tripod for your camera. However this approach will create unrealistic views — such as in the panoramic image of my kitchen seen below.
The way I do it, in case of outdoors photography, is that I find a structure I can lean on and move from one side of the view to the other taking shots that overlap in at least 30% of their areas.

When you are ready, simply click
