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.

Hmm is anyone else having problems with the pictures on this blog loading? I'm trying to figure out if its a problem on my end or if it's the blog. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic however I'd figured I'd ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa? My blog discusses a lot of the same topics as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other. If you're interested feel free to shoot me an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Wonderful blog by the way!

One “trick” here is to hint at the takeaways at the start, but hold a little back.

iPhone X is the most expensive iPhone ever produced, and its striking glass-heavy design means it’s not just the display you need to worry about breaking but the back too. Though Apple say this is the most durable glass its ever used, it’s still glass – and glass shatters.

The same principle applies when betting on football (or betting on anything in fact). You're not looking for the best interest rate though, you're looking for the best odds and lines. Time spent on finding them can make a significant difference to your overall results.

You might want to put the bulk of your closet budget in basic, quality handbags, to make sure they will endure your lifestyle. So if you're an office worker, invest in durable tote bags that you love and can see yourself using for many years to come. commented on 15-Oct-2018 11:22 PM
