Photoshop Baseline ‘Standard’ vs Baseline Optimized

These are the three JPG formats for image compression, which affects the way your images display on the web: Baseline Standard is used when you want your JPG to be recognizable to most web browsers. It’s basic and, well…. standard! It makes the least amount of changes to your image. All web browsers support it. ...

Bug #685893 (sf-2932316) “arbitrary stop errors because of exces…” : Bugs : Enblend

Sometimes enblend stops with error code 1 and a message “excessive overlap detected; remove one of the images”. This behavior is arbitrary. F.e. a test project with 8 images all in the exact same place on an equirectangular canvas doesn’t cause the error. via Bug #685893 (sf-2932316) “arbitrary stop errors because of exces…” : Bugs ...

Bug #685893 (sf-2932316) “arbitrary stop errors because of exces…” : Bugs : Enblend

I love Hugin, but it does seem to have one issue. If you actually take photos too closely together, it will throw an mysterious error. You just have to read the log and defeat the offending image which overlaps too much then it continues. Sometimes enblend stops with error code 1 and a message “excessive ...

Rich’s Excellent Photo Workflow

OK, it is a bit eccentric, but when you have 10,000 or so photos a year (?!!) that need to get processed, you begin to rely on yourself more and less on software. That is I’ve had various photo programs (iPhoto, Aperture, Lightroom) lose databases and crash several times. Also I’ve had bad hard drives ...

Shanghai Places to try out

Haven’t been back to Shanghai in a while and haven’t had time to study and look for cool places to go, but here are some quick notes: Bakeries. Well, 85 degrees C Bakery seems to be the most popular (a  Taiwanese chain), but none seem to be close to Lujiazui. But you have to see ...

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 arrvies

I’m glad we waited a bit, there is a slight spin of the GTX780 to a GTX 990 (the 8xx series is the mobile family). The main thing is that it is the new Maxwell architecture which is a midlife extension to Keplar. Designed for “mobile first”, it doubles the power efficientiy (watts/gflop) of Keplar. ...

Nvidia Maxwell Geforce 800 comes in September

Here’s a reason not to buy a GPU right now. But the big problem is that the 20nm technology at TSMC and Global Foundries is having trouble. But it makes it pretty clear we are late in the cycle, so if you can wait hang on until next year where you will see 20nm graphics ...

A good deal on AMD R9 290X or nVidia 780Ti

These seem to be the two best cards and the pricing on them varies very significantly. For instance, the PCS Pro+ varied between $650 and $460 over a two month period (I just missed that $460 price not realizing this). I’m using camelcamelcamel.com and just monitoring a newegg.com wish list to try get a good ...
