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 leave a comment whenever I like a post on a blog or I have something to valuable to contribute to the discussion.

Usually it's triggered by the passion displayed in the article I browsed.
And after this post The big shot. I was moved enough to
create a thought :-P I do have 2 questions for you
if it's allright. Is it just me or does it appear like some of these responses look like they are coming from
brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing on other social sites, I would like to
follow you. Could you list all of your social pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

Pacman will likely be signing "Who's Gonna Run This Town Tonight" at some karaoke spot if he balances his political record at 1-1.

You will appreciate it when the time comes that you need to go
back in your game to correct a costly mistake without having
to restart completely. Each win gets you more ABP, leading to increasing your level with
time whereas each loss takes away ABP from you.

After I originally commented I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments
are added- checkbox and now whenever a comment is added I get
4 emails with the exact same comment. There has to be a means you can
remove me from that service? Kudos!
