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.

For all the butter-fingers out there who struggle to keep a hold on the slippery iPhone, this case from Silk could be the answer. It’s quite a slim case, but the outside is textured to provide “Kung Fu grip”. It is very light, but air pockets in the corners help to guard against minor drops and bumps. There are tactile button covers for power and volume, and accurate openings for everything else. It comes in black, gray, blue, and purple.

n my opinion, here are the things that really matter if you do SEO in 2018, and I would wager that both white-hats and black-hats would agree on these:

And like other professionals in my life, these women treat me as a valued customer and may even become friends of mine. They look forward to seeing me again, the same way any other professional likes to see their good clients come around.

If done right, you can spend a lifetime of happiness with a reliable and high-performing host who is always available through phone, chat, or email to answer your burning late-night questions. However, rushing into a hosting relationship without doing your research could lead to feeling trapped, misled, or extorted.

Every home needs electrical repairs from time to time, but because of the dangers involved, these repairs don’t make safe do-it-yourself projects. Most folks will be better off hiring professional electricians.
