Is there a way, yet, in Aperture to merge photos into a panorama? If not, any decent apps that will work with RAW images?

MacBook Pro (13-inch Late 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.4)

    No way to do this in Aperture and I;d be surprised if it ever was incorporated into it.

     

    As for external solutions a Google search for panorama software mac will turn up a number of possible packages.

    I don't think you are going to find  panoramic software that also contains a Raw converter plus all the adjustments you'd need to turn the Raw into a final image.

     

    It really would not make much sense for the developer to also have to create the converter and remember it wouldn't just be one piece of software it would be hundreds, one for each camera.

     

    I'd look for a  panoramic creator that works with Tiff files,  that will give you optimum quality.

    Then excuse me but you're understanding of Raw files and digital imaging is flawed. Or else you are using the the term "Raw" in a new way that  I am unfamiliar with.

    That's not possible.  RAW files can't really be "worked with;" to make a panorama from RAW files the output is going to be a pixel-based format like TIFF or JPEG.

    I'm not looking for somthing to turn the RAW into a final image, I wish to keep it RAW.

    The closest you will be able to get to raw after adjusting or processing an image would a lossless image format like tiff.
