Free or not what's the software that you use to stitch your pictures together , I already have CS6 for it but I just want to know if there's something better!

I use PTGui, which I like much better than Photoshop CS6 for panorama stitching.

 I am not heavy into panoramic stitching but the Panorama feature in Windows Live Photo Gallery works.

I use Autopano Giga and I am very happy with the results.

i use hugin and im happy with it. only HDR could be handled a bit more intuitive.
But it works great and gives superb results. It might be a bit more complex than others, but then again you have controll and can easily correct bad autostitches.

Autopano Giga is only good, if you shoot on a pano-head (with angular raster) - you must have exactly the same number of pics per row.

Another vote for hugin.

I downloaded it when I first got my 5D3 in May....watched the tutorials and all on the site and some on Youtube...and it worked out just great for me.

It isn't super intuitive, but after reading on the site and watching the tutorial videos, I was able to stitch together some great pano shots....one whole one of Jackson Square in New Orleans came out nicely...

If you're using windows, you should definitely try Microsoft Ice. It's fully automatic, but it works almost always.
Oh, and it's really fast.

Give hugin a try. It is free, pretty easy to use, and produces remarkable results. As an added bonus it has the ability to perfectly correct perspective, distortion, etc. http://hugin.sourceforge.net/

CS6 works great if you select cylindrical when you combine the photos.
