Calibrate Your Monitor with Screen Check [Monitors]

screen-check.pngCalibrate your monitors for consistent tone and color with web site Screen Check. The site displays two bars, one white-to-black for adjusting tone and the other covers the red/green/blue spectrum for adjusting color. Just follow the Screen Check instructions and by the end you should have a reasonably well calibrated monitor. My Dell comes with a very similar built-in calibration tool, but if your monitor doesn't, Screen Check is worth a look.

Camera Has Whole Bunch Of Megapixels

Camera Has Whole Bunch Of Megapixels

In ridiculous

160mp-camera.jpg Is 10 or 12 megapixels just not enough for you? Looking for something with a little more resolution? How about 160MP? That's what the new Seitz D3 6 x 17 is packing. The 4.5 lb camera takes 60 x 170 mm images with 7,500 x 21,250 pixel resolution. An uncompressed file is just under a gig in size and the thing is so nasty that it functions through a little tablet PC attached to the back. Pretty sweet. I'm thinking this is probably the logical step up from the 1MP HP digital camera I've been rocking for nine years now. Unfortunately the $44,414 pricetag made me throw up and soil my pants at the same time.

Flickr Mass Downloader

By Martin on pictures

Downloading pictures from Flickr can be a time consuming task, especially if you find a collection that contains dozens or even more pictures that you like and would like to download. A mass downloader for Flickr would aid and help you a lot and reduce the time needed to download all the pictures that you want.

Flickr Down is such a easy to use downloader. You specify a Flickr username, e-mail address, tag or group name and start the search. The search will reveal thumbnails of the images that were found and you can either check the ones that you would like to download or check the search term so that all pictures are downloaded to your computer.

You can specify the directory where the images are saved in. When you made the selection you simply click on download which opens a new window with all the names of the images that you want to download. Images get checked when they have been downloaded.

The process can take a while depending on your download speed and the amount of images that you have choose. Flickr Down has an authorize option as well that authorizes you at Flickr so that you can download private photos as well.

Useful tools, Namexif

Namexif™ is a tool to automatically rename photos with the date they were shot.
Digital cameras have their own clock and record the date to each photos with a precision of a second. Since the date and time is recorded for each photos (provided it is an EXIF compliant digital camera), Namexif™ is able to rename these photos according to the date.
# Doing so will: make chronological order same as alphabetical one,
# set a unique name to your photos

This is one of the better HDR images I've seen, it doesn't look unnatural like some of the other examples.

I need to get a tripod so I can attempt the process :)
