Enfuse is a command line utility which is included in the kit utilities Enblend-enfuse designed for seamless merging images into panoramas, and details of exhibitions, designed to combine overlapping images taken with different exposure, using an algorithm combining exposure Mertens-Kautz-Van Reeth (allowing you to obtain beautiful photos without creating an intermediate HDR image).
Because if you use Enfuse the result is not always predictable and you have to experiment, graphical interface MacroFusion can be a very useful tool for both professional photographers and lovers of digital photography.
