Today was devoted entirely to working on the VHS Birthday project for Mr. Owens. Yesterday, I took photos of the school for Fadi to pen tool, but the images were not detailed enough for him, so today I went and took some more. To achieve the required detail, I decided to make a panorama of the school. Quite simply, a panorama is a group of images of different parts of the same thing that are merged to create a single, massive image.
I took 132 photos for two panoramas, which took over an hour total to render. The first file image was 4.24GB and the second was 4.56GB!!!!! Photoshop cannot save images over 2GB, so I had to flatten the dozens of layers, which reduced the file size by a factor of sixteen. The final JPEG’s (which are around 50MB) are here and here (give them a LONG time to load).
Now it is Fadi’s turn to work his artistic magic with the pen tool.
