Microsoft Publisher 2010 – Grayscale, Sepia, or Tint an Image

29 Sep

For artistic reasons, convert an image in a Publisher 2010 document to grayscale, give it a sepia tone, or tint it another color.

If you’ve ever decided that to better blend in with a document design, a picture should be converted to grayscale, sepia tone, or given a different colored tint, you might have thought you needed to perform the operation outside of Microsoft Publisher 2010. Think again – you can alter images in a Publisher 2010 document with just a couple of clicks.

1. First, select the image you wish to modify….

RuneScape High-Level BOSS Monsters Solo (Part 3b)

28 Sep

Music used: — Killzone 2 – Autarch’s Sanctum Battle Final Fantasy XII – Speechless Fight X-Ray Dog – Dethroned Part 3 of the High Level RuneScape boss monsters solo. Part B is the final half of part 3. To answer who will ask how I’m hitting the Corporeal beast a lot is because when using Statius’s warhammer special attack, it can reduce the target’s defence by 30% when attack is successful. Unlike Sap Warrior/Leech Defence, Curse (spell), and Enfeeble, the 30% reduction can stack. The cheaper method would be using Darklight’s special attack that can reduce Attack, Strength and Defence by 5% with a successful hit.

71-Gigapixel Photo Budapest.mp4

28 Sep

A group of young Hungarians, sponsored by industry big-shots Epson, Microsoft and Sony, have created the world’s highest-resolution 360° panoramic photograph to date. Shot from a 100-year-old observation tower built on the highest point of Budapest, the stitched panorama is over 590000 pixels wide by nearly 121000 pixels tall. In order to take the necessary number of photos in the least amount of time, the creators of the record-breaking image mounted a pair of Sony A900 bodies – each outfitted with a Minolta AF 400mm f/4.5 APO G lens and 1.4x teleconverter – on a sturdy stand complete with a custom-designed robotic head. Even with this setup, the image capturing stage of the project took over three hours to complete. The source images were then stitched with Autopano Giga software on a Dell Precision T7500 Workstation with 2 quad-core Intel Xeon processors, 24 gigabytes of RAM and 6 terabytes of storage capacity. The stitching process took two full days and resulted in a 200GB KRO file, which had to be converted into PPM format and split into three parts for retouching in Photoshop. A 300ppi print of the entire photo would be 156 metres wide by 31 metres high, ie a lot wider than a football field is long. While such a print is unlikely to ever see the light of day, Epson has endeavoured to produce a 15m wide print from a downsized, 1.5-gigapixel version, which will be on display at the Erzsébet lookout station in Budapest – where the source images were taken – on 11-12

Tweetography: how (and why) to improve your photography skills via Twitter.

28 Sep

Twitter seems to be taking over the world (and by “seems to be,” I’m sure I mean, “totally already has”) and the realm of photography is no exception. My husband calls twitter “the stupid that stuck,” and I’m utterly amazed that something so remarkably stupid could be so perfectly AMAZING on every count.  I wish every day that I invented it. Unfortunately, I’m too smart to come up with something so stupid (read: awesome beyond all reason).

Here are 5 reasons/ways to jump on the stupid wagon (of all awesomeness) and use twitter to increase your photography knowledge:

1. Twitter: the mirco-forum

Interesting twitter discussions can be reminiscent of a casual (and perhaps more easily accessible) online forum. Create a twitter buzz in your online photography forums of choice by dropping your twitter name in forum discussions (don’t be obnoxious) and by inviting others to do the same.  Cross follow, and then you can take the formality of a forum (or flickr) over to the self appointed micro forum that is twitter!

You’ll quickly find yourself led to other budding tweetographers and you’ll soon find yourself learning and SHARING information like it’s going out of style!  Give, give, give. Share, share, share and you’ll find that others will quickly join in kind.

It’s easy to get people to join in, or expand the breadth of, discussions via twitter (and a side benefit of this is the extra followers you’ll gain through all the @replies!).

2. Twitter: the microjournal

Twitter is also a wonderful way to track your progress.

Tweet pictures and ask your followers for constructive critiques on them. 

Also, link to articles you’re reading (or better yet, have written).

Use a service like to protect your tweets and then refer back to them to see how far you’ve come!

3. The Tweetup

Network with other local photographers.  Find one online, and you’ll soon be led to more.

Organize tweetups where you and other local tweetographers can organize shoots or simply go out for drinks together and talk shop.

Side note: Local twitter friends are worth their weight in gold.  Aside from becoming dear, dear friends, mine have more than once bailed me out of a gear related bind, or provided last minute assistance on a complicated shoot.

4. Twitter: the professional network

Follow professional tweetographers (again, find one and you’ll quickly be led to more).

The professional realm is in large part a tight knit community, and many photographers share tips and tricks (their own and eachother’s) via twitter.  Even more link to interesting industry articles, giveaways, how to’s and etc. There is an abundant wealth of knowledge for the novice or budding pro.  It’s also a great way (probably THE BEST resource of all) to learn about upcoming photography workshops in your area.

Don’t be afraid to ask questions about your craft using @ replies.  You won’t always get a response, but often times you will!

5. Live and die by the retweet

Though this post is not a discussion on the art of drumming up followers on twitter, I will say this:

Retweet pertinent information and tweet information that is retweetable.  Become best friends with and share useful information. Because it makes you cool.  And because it drums up your following (read: educational network).

For more information on increasing your twitter following, there are excellent articles on the web including this one by Kevin Rose for Tech Smart.

Happy Tweeting!
