    PS perspective grids

    anal from analytical I hope? ok. this is my last post here as I seem to be wasting my time. when you take a look at images A and B on that tutorial, you will notice that the squares in A have become rectangles in B. proof: the height of the first row in B is larger than in A while, due to...

    PS perspective grids

    That tutorial does not explain this. Perhaps you know about exactly how to calculate the width of the rectangle in your square/grid, but most people visiting this forum don't. Why do you identify with a tut by someone else that isn't complete?

    for you deep thinkers

    You can say nothing about that which goes beyond your understanding. Most people feel the need to have an opinion on everything, but all knowledge is always a deformed simplification. It can be so that apples do fall off the trees because some invisible rainbow-coloured little guy who lives on...

    PS perspective grids

    Sorry, but I'm not impressed. Normally, if you want to use mathematical perspective, not only the lines of the grid should meet at the vanishing point on the horizon, but the diagonals of the squares should do the same, namely meet in one point on the horizon line. A random shortening of the...

    Eagles Farewell 1 Tour

    Twilight Zone...this takes me to Golden earring, a Dutch band who had a hit called TZ. From the lyrics: Help, I'm stepping into the Twilight Zone The place is a mad-house, feels like being cloned My beacon's been moved under moon and star Where am I to go now that I've gone too far? I...

    Eagles Farewell 1 Tour

    Wow. Great info! Makes me think of Buffy Sainte-Marie's EagleMan-Changing woman: Eagle Man climbing the skies Red light of evening falls like rain Rainbow's my yarn The sky is my loom I will weave sunsets later on Snow Woman Climbing the wind Blue light of winter fills her...

    Eagles Farewell 1 Tour

    Hotel California is also a fav of mine. Colita, as I was told by a Mexican guy long ago, is a kind of food. Bizarre thing is that no Spanish dictionary seems to "know" it (it means "bum") yet it is used and can be found in recepies where it means "the fleshy part of-": "COLITAS DE RAPE...

    'Arching' an image?

    all images are rectangles (90?corners and straight lines.) when saved. so if you want to do this and keep it like that, you'll need to do it on a layer. see that the background is larger than the distorted image. for the web you either need gif (tansparancy) or if jpg is needed, you can...

    Mac procedure question

    I know OS9 and OSX. I would wait for the Intel macs that will come out. Simple calculation tells that the G5 was an intermediate step and will not be supported for years to come. My printer, scanner, external HDD and external DVDwriter work on pc and mac. What I was referring to when...

    Mac procedure question

    if you want options: option(apple) click if you want something else: alt(ernative) click don't double click though on the workspace to open a new doc as it'll send ps to finder. apart from that, it's as good as identical. (beware of the smoothtalking salesguys)

    Question about video capture.

    Take a look at Colorwasher ( http://www.thepluginsite.com/ ). I can tell you from experience that its algorythms are so good that in some 80% of the cases its automatic enhancement is better than what you get after an hour of tweaking. And believe me: I really tried to be better than a "stupid"...

    new camera

    I'm really sorry Ooptea for having overlooked that not everyone speaks the terminology. Thanks Photobill for the help. Imo, for what you wrote now, that Canon still holds. But Bill may have other suggestions.

    new camera

    It's simple: if you get for less than $400 what a camera of $1500 offers, then there must be something wrong with the quality. My idea: 1/ AA batteries are handier and less expensive that NiCd or whatever. You always need at least two sets. 2/ megapixels does say nothing about quality but...

    new camera

    I would consider the CanonA95 (about $300 if I read well) an overview: http://www.steves-digicams.com/2004_reviews/a95.html My nephew has one. It's a very handy camera and you can use rechargeable AA batteries (get the most powerful you can find: it pays off!). 5MPix allows for top...

    Oly 8080WZ (80MB pic)

    Isn't the submarine life very colourful! I've always loved to look at its beauty and variety. But, to be honest, the scientific names of fish I neglect as my visit is mostly an aesthetic one, spiced with a trance-like feeling. Nice pics by the way. It's really not a question of experience...

    Oly 8080WZ (80MB pic)

    Thanks. The advantage of digicams is that you can set them to an automatic ISO jump, so that they switch to "higher sensitivity film" when there is less light. Second: never ever use a flash in an aquarium. Not only this results in a bad photo, but it's also very bad for the animals (eyes,...)...

    Oly 8080WZ (80MB pic)

    Guess I finally accepted the Olympus 8080WZ. I had some problems when I started: camera freezing (due to a slow card of 1GB, changed to Sandisk extreme 512 and no more probs), batteries running low quite quickly (after some 5 reloads they last more than 180 fullsize jpg with preview each time...

    2 from last night. 330K

    More than very impressive these are! (the botanical garden ones are also very good) One question I have: can your camera focus these (spot?) automatically, or do you focus manually yourself?

    Cosmic simulation with 3D superputer

    The Max Planck Institute has guided a particles (3Dthingie) based simulation of some Cosmic scale event: witness it (you need a fast connection to download the avi's. But there are also images): http://www.mpa-garching.mpg.de/galform/press/
