It uses the normal function of any panorama stitching program. A stitching
program will look for a part of one picture that is more or less like
another part in another picture and it will stitch these together. Some
programs will do this horizontally only. I'm not sure if programs that
allow non horizontal stitching are better or not. Certainly they are
more fun! This will not help you if you want a perfect pano of your
building. On the other hand: if you use a tripod, set level, everything
is easy and no panorama program will have any trouble producing a nice
