    The Directors Cut

    Beautiful imagery and perfect background music. The very interesting thing to me is how it's perfectly possible to have incredible images without all the hoopla over dynamic range. Nearly every day I hear criticism on photo and technical forums that camera A has better dynamic range capabilities than camera B and how that's so terribly important to photographers. I call BS on this. Yes for certain photos and perhaps for forensic photography dynamic range may hold great value, but these images are perfect examples of why it's (dynamic range) not the be all - end all for photographers. Sometimes expressed dynamic range gets in the way of an otherwise beautiful photo. Sure, you could have adjusted the curves, levels, or shadows/highlights on these photos to allow the viewer to see all the hidden details in the shadows and have rendered a show where the viewer could see highlights and shadow details easily, but then the entire damn mood would have been destroyed and the effects of the dynamic high contrast would have been lost. Congratulations on producing a product which does what it was intended to do rather than conform to the expectations of armchair pseudo-experts of which many have never produced a photo worth spending the time to observe! Nice job, Best regards, Lin Quote Edit Options

    Just a quick demo of some capabilities of PicturesToExe which are not found in other presentation slideshow products. Text circling a rotating planet (Jupiter in this case) is something which can be accomplished in Photoshop Extended in the 3D Video section, but it results in a video being created. The text can't be manipulated beyond what is done in the video. The colors on the front and back of text can't be different and individual characters can't be in different fonts, etc. With PicturesToExe this is all possible and much more! PTE is vastly more versatile for doing this than even Photoshop Extended. This demonstration created in PicturesToExe 9 demonstrate 3D animated and orbiting text showing both front and back of the text - demonstrating color and different font characterists. It also demonstrates multiple layers and masking as well as use of RGBA alpha channel and chroma key extraction features. Many of these capabilities will not be used in the average slideshow, but are there for those who wish to experiment and try new things with this magnificent product.

    360 panorama

    Version 1.0.0


    A few years ago, my old pup Honey and I on a beautiful fall morning decided to catch sunup on Devil's Gultch Road north of Estes Park, Colorado. On the way up, a cougar (mountain lion) jumped over the hood of my truck. By the time I could grab my camera and get out of the truck she had disappeared down the mountain side and into the trees of the forest. A quarter mile up the road I met a man walking his two dogs off the leash. I stopped to warn him about the big cat and he told me that the wildlife people had been trying to trap her for a couple weeks to put a radio collar on her. She had been hanging around and enjoying the views too I guess. Another couple miles up the road I stopped here at the junction of Devil's Gultch Road and Lumpy Ridge Road near the Lumpy Ridge trailhead and shot this series of shots which encompassed a bit more than 360 degrees. I stitched them into a very wide pano to demonstrate how PTE can be used to display a 360 degree horizontal panorama. The sun was just about to peep over the horizon and several hundred elk were contentedly grazing on the grounds in front of ranch homes. A beautiful morning in Colorado....

    Jewelry Reflections

    Version 1.0.0


    My late wife Sherry had Native American (Cherokee) ancestry and was an avid collector of Native American Indian art. For 35 years we traveled across the southwest USA to various reservations where we traded with native craftsmen and got to know many of them quite well as friends. I spent many years doing gallery art photography for many museums and galleries in the southwest and still stay in touch with a number of well-known artists. These are some of my images of exquisite American Indian art... I shared Sherry's love for both the art and culture of our indigenous people... Lin

    Waterfall - zipped Mac and Windows exe files

    Just a reminder to all that the purpose of the Demo section as opposed to the Slideshow section is to show things which "can" be and sometimes are being done with PicturesToExe. I have not demonstrated a waterfall animation on Slideshow Club in the past, and people who have already seen this effect in shows perhaps on the PTE forum are not going to see anything new here. However, in all fairness, what is demonstrated here is primarily for those not already aware of the many different types of animations possible with PicturesToExe. The waterfall animation is just that - it's not a slideshow and not designed to do more than demonstrate the effect. So if you are looking for entertainment then just ignore this because it's essentially 60 seconds of tranquility. Lin
