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.

I've been browsing online greater than 3 hours these days, but I by no means discovered any interesting article like
yours. It is lovely value enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and
bloggers made excellent content as you did, the internet will
likely be much more useful than ever before.

Hello there! Quick question that's totally off topic.
Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?

My web site looks weird when browsing from my iphone.
I'm trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this issue.
If you have any recommendations, please share.
Thanks!

naturally like your website however you have to take a look at the spelling on quite a few of your posts.
Several of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very bothersome to tell the truth then again I'll surely come again
