The [other stitcher application] seems to automatically apply a sharpening filter to its stitched output. This is particularly evident as a light or dark (or both) fringe at high-contrast boundaries. Automatic sharpening is unfortunate if you need to rescale or rotate the stitched image. Sharpening should be applied only as the final step.
The Panorama Factory lets you control the sharpening yourself. If you apply the Enhance command (image menu) to your stitched and cropped image in the Panorama Factory you'll find that the resulting image looks at least as good as the [other stitcher application] image. I suggest starting with a sharpening value of 2 (the default) but experiment with larger or smaller values to get a pleasing result.
To get the best result, you should also use the Improve quality command (Image menu). It improves sharpness by eliminating multi-generation image degradation.

I want to scan 2 1/4 transparencies for large files and stitch them into a finished panorama. I'm only guessing at this point, but the biggest jobs would involve four images at roughly 50 meg each for final outputs files of about 100-150 mb depending on overlap
