Image resizing


I received an email from regular Pelicula 64 devotee Scott McDermott last night, with this very interesting You Tube video on image resizing. Basically an algorithm software for changing the size of an image without distorting it. Watching the first minute or two is really fun till you realize exactly how this could and will be used in our business. Scott's words were "interesting, aside from the artistic and ethical ramifications". Right on. I Love the narrator who comforts all of us with " we gracefully re size the image to fit into a window". Can't you see it now, break you heart to set up a shot, with specific this, that, and the other thing, all coinciding just to make your image, YOURS. Then some schmuck comes along at a magazine and squares up your perfectly aligned 8x10.... just so as it fits.......who will notice? This is well worth keeping an eye on because it will be used. Right on Scott thanks for noticing.

I’ve watched the video too and it was fantastic. I’m sure the photography business will be highly influenced by the new advances in technology. Resizing pictures is something I deal with almost every day…it’s part of this business. Let me tell you I long stopped working with Photoshop right now I’ve discovered a great tool for image resizing at reshade.com. You’ll be impressed by the results you can get from it.
It helped me a lot and that is why I keep recommend it whenever I get the chance.
