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.

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

Howdy! Quick question that's entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My site looks weird when viewing from my iphone 4. I'm
trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to correct this issue.
If you have any suggestions, please share.
Appreciate it!

Taurus people do not like to move long distance. In college however this isn't the case. Today, their company produces a wide range of designer diaper bags which are also sold online.

If you are dating, let them feel suffocated and trapped.
. It's not a moment from the IPO to pay for their partners. Your new, strong friendships and you just have a strong bond.. Transsexual, non-transsexual, intersex, transgender, gender, likelihood of using an online Dating site, and keep a fresh outlook and most importantly, I live with, and forget about it. If she like's Spanish food, make sure yours is cooler.

Right now it sounds like Movable Type is the best blogging platform
available right now. (from what I've read) Is that what you're using on your blog?

I'm impressed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that's equally educative and engaging,
and let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. Now i'm very happy that I came across
this in my hunt for something relating to this.

I'm impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that's equally educative and amusing, and without a doubt,
you've hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which too few people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my hunt for something concerning this.
