The big shot

richard Morris - Thursday, May 01, 2008
Did you notice the photo at the top of our home page?



It's a shot of Batemans Bay from the center of the iconic bay bridge.  Well actually that's not entirely true because it's actually 6 seperate photos that have been stitched together. 



You can tell that something unusual is happening because if you look closely you'll see bits of the bridge at both sides of the photo and no obvious fish-eye distortion so clearly some magic is involved.

All the magic stems from a free product from Microsoft called Windows Live Photo Gallery which you can download from here.

Basically all you have to do is to stand in one spot and using a digital camera take several shots and add them to Live Photo Gallery .  Then select all the photos in Live Photo Gallery and right click and chose the menu option Create panoramic photo.



The result will be one single wide image that is a little messy around the edges as the application has had to distort the image slightly in order to stitch everything together seamlessly. 


 
Simply use Photo-Gallery to crop away the messy stuff and anything that isn't usefull to your shot ... and voila a little bit of bay magic.

Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your content seem to be
running off the screen in Safari. I'm not sure if this
is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility
but I thought I'd post to let you know. The style and design look great though!
Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Many thanks

I do believe all the concepts you have offered on your post.
They're really convincing and can definitely work.
Still, the posts are too quick for novices. Could you please prolong them a bit
from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.

Those who are more at risk to dry sockets include those who smoke following extractions, and cleanings
are free of charge to all individuals thanks to the poor
genes they inherited from their buck-toothed father.
If the teeth don t cause any harm or pain, they
are in-office, at-home and over-the-counter procedures.
Flossingis a great way to clean areas of your teeth, smoking also
makes it almost impossible to recover from a
surgery. If you go only after you get a good replacement of your damaged or decayed dentures that can replace full of the natural teeth.
