Not choked in that sense. Rather, choked in sense of not good results due
to problems with seams/blending. Hugin allows for setting of control points
manually that can correct such issues in panos where for one reason or
another (such as insufficient or ambiguous overlap) PS did a bad job. It's
tedious and frustration making, but can be a way of getting a decent --even
great-- pano that was problematic otherwise.

Gimp has had *lots* of updates. I think it's generally improved with time.
For someone that wqs never a heavy user of PS, like me, I suspect the
frustration level is lower than for those who have developed "muscle
memory" with PS.

Are we talking about two different acronyms here? I was a bit redundant, as
the one I was referring to was Digital Rights Management, i.e. that
syndrome where software developers (or others, like music/movie producers)
attempt to impose all sorts of odd, protected by statute, usually only
temporarily effective, schemes to prevent use of their IP without
sufficient permission (and often --deliberately-- designed in such a way as
to infringe upon the end-user's statutory rights).

(Note that I do think there needs to be rights management of some sort, to
ensure people do/can get paid where desired. However, doing so in such a
way that infringes on the rights of the end-user isn't the way to go about
