Greetings, "Bill"!

If you are wanting to upload a single stitched together image, you can use Microsoft Research's Image Composite Editor to upload the stitched image to Photosynth. 

It is available for download here: http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/um/redmond/groups/ivm/ice/

Traditional image stitchers require you to to have taken all images from one perspective. What Photosynth does best is to stitch images of the same thing that are all taken from different points of view.

Consider synths such as these (don't forget to look at point cloud view):

These are examples of what Photosynth does that normal image stitchers do not, but it is critical that you photograph the same objects from different points of view that do not differ by more than 25 degrees as you move around them and take small enough steps when walking away or toward objects or in between different objects. You need to photograph in a way that demonstrates to the computer how one object relates to the others.
