Dear all,

I am also very interested in such applications, but in the case of
aligning similar images, typically pictures of the same object taken at
a few hundred miliseconds intervals, which produces some shifting if you
have no tripod. The application of this is to do "High dynamic range"


There are free software for creating and rendering such pictures, but
nothing (to my knowledge) for aligning pictures taken without tripod. If
R could perform such task, it would open the way of High Dynamic Range
to the masses.

Have a nice day,
