How do I post a pano?
« on: December 17, 2012, 04:44:52 AM »
Last weekend had shot some in-camera panoramas. When resized to forum rules of posting images they are "teeny-weeny". How to post them in full resolution?

When I open in PMB there is a PLAY button that makes it move left to right in full screen. Is there anything like that here?

And how some of you post and give a link "click for larger image"?

I don't know what any of this means - what's PMB? Anyway, I'd say 'no' there's nothing like this here :)

This is the way to do it!
It's very easy - you just post the link to the image, without [ img ] tags.
If you want to get a little more fancy, you can post is as a link using [ url ] tags, displaying whatever text you want, like this:

Code: [Select]

[url=http://www.yourdomain.com/imagefile.jpg]CLICK ME I AM A LINK[/url]

Thanks Rex for clarifying to Fother.

If SONY improved functions like wider exposure control, better highlight / shadow controls, individual colour controls like LR4,better Noise and Sharpening, non-destructive processing,crop and rotate, and added watermarking etc. to their RAW processor (Image Data Converter), PMB with IDC is a great combo. The colours of SONY RAWs processed on IDC seem to require not much corrections - perhaps SONY tuned it to their sensors.

The main difference between LR and Sony Raw converter is that Sony converter keep all setting you were having on camera but LR will keep only the basic.
In LR is a very detail and deep procedure where the manufacture can not.

If you want to be really fancy, you can make an Image that you can click on to get the full size version

EG:




Take the image you want to see (the smaller one) and create the IMG tags for it



Code: [Select]
[img]http://faldrax.org/Images/Thumbnails/DSC00795_s1.jpg[/img]

And the URL for the Full size image

Click Me

Code: [Select]
[url=http://faldrax.org/Images/Small/DSC00795_e1.jpg]Click Me[/url]

Then Use the IMG section as the 'text'
Code: [Select]
[url=http://faldrax.org/Images/Small/DSC00795_e1.jpg][img]http://faldrax.org/Images/Thumbnails/DSC00795_s1.jpg[/img][/url]

Faldrax, if you or any member, uses a small photo that has to be clicked to be enlarged to viewing size, that photo will not be considered for Photo of the month. Nor will it be likely to be short listed for voting in the Monthly Challenge. This is because we do not want to post a link as the winner of these two contests, we have to have a photo to display and a small photo would not work. I am sure you can see my point.

The best thing to do is to post the largest photo you can (under 800 pixels and under 200KB) thus allowing us to get a good idea of the photo, and that will make it eligible for the contests, this would apply also to panos. If you want us to see your photo at a larger size then post a link to it. The only advice I can offer about keeping a photo below 200KB pixels is to upload the photo at 800pixels and around 140KB maximum. Flickr seems to be the biggest problem with size as they resize your photo for some reason and can add 50 to 60KB to it. I don't use flickr for that very reason.

Noted the replies.

I edited the pano pics in LR4 and the 'panning' function in PMB no more works :-( . Only the original OOC JPG works with PMB so you click the PLAY button and enjoy the moving panorama.

Sorry, the intention wasn't to suggest using a small photo as the basic post, but just to demonstrate the technique - the actual image was from some time back, and it was easiest to simply copy that one as it was all set up. It also kept the file size down in this thread, for the benefit of all (since this thread was not about the image, but how you could post a link using an image).

The easiest way around Flckr resizing  is to pay for it rather than use the free version -I had to do this. This gives you the option of, when copying and pasting the url, choosing 'original size'.
I now save for web at under 200kb and it stays under 200kb.

There's always 'Photobucket' as an option - the sizes don't alter with this.
