Panoramic photography lets you create pictures that go way beyond the limits of the single frame your camera takes. The technique involves taking a series of pictures where the edges overlap, and then using software to "glue" the pictures together.
Most digital cameras include software for this, but that software is usually nigh on inadequate.
