Updated Sabah Panoramic Pictures and Free Software

http://groups.google.com.my/group/hugin-ptx/browse_thread/thread/4a1dde63e0e1621a?hl=en#

Details are in the hugin discussion group above.

The pictures can be viewed with a panoramic viewer instead of just a
flat screen as in sabahheaven.blogspot.com

blogspot.com is not designed for many pictures because it displays all
of them in one page. As I add more pictures, it will slow down the
page view.

00webhost allows me to upload up to 200Mbyte of data and have complete
control on how to view these pictures.

If I've learned how to protect my high resolution pictures, I should
display some of them.

The originals are in 8192x4096 resolutions, scaled down to 1920 for
internet viewings.

Using a 6 Megpixel, you can get as high as 14000 pixel resolution. It
will take too long to stich them. My PC is now 2Gbyte with 2.8Ghz
Hypherthreading Pentium 4. My processing speed has improved immensely
to less than 1 hour per picture.

Karambunai Panorama

http://www.nexusresort.com/new/index.html

Karambunai is one of the most beautiful places on earth. It is a small
peninsula inside a lagoon. This makes the water in the lagoon so calm
and yet full of life.

The beach facing the South China sea is exposed so the waves tend to
be big.

Situated at about 15km from the nearest Mega Mall of the recently
opened 1borneo, it is very remote which made it attractive for people
who want privacy and complete tranquillity.

The cheaper rooms at the Ocean Wing, are not easy to book during
weekends, so we checked in on Friday immediately after my children had
gone home from school.

I had just completed the stitching of panoramic pictures of the beach
at the hotel and at the lagoon and uploaded to
sabahheaven.blogspot.com.

I've updated my panoramic pictures by using exposure adjustment
provided by enfuse for the whole picture and patched some missing
portions. I had even reconstructed half of a volleyball court.
