Topic: General Gigapanning / Godzilla size gigapixel

Hi,

I have a big gigapixel of about 1000 pics.

How can I do to manage it?

The tiff file format only allows 2 gb maximun. So ?

What can I do if I want to correct mistakes in the photo?

Can you please give information about RAW format?

What is my best option?

Thanks
Regards

Topic: Web Site and Forum / 'Galleries' in 'Groups' do not allow adding Gigapans

Upon creation of a ‘Group’ and a ‘Gallery’ for the group, the method of getting ‘Gigapans’ into the created gallery is not obvious.

To add Gigapans to a Groups Gallery, open the Gigapan up, and under the Gigapan will be a button for ‘Groups Galleries’, click on that, and you can add the Gigapan to any groups galleries that you are a member of (you can select which one at this stage)

Hope this helps others, as it took me a week to figure it out.

Check out nickel-zinc batteries. They are less affected by cold and have a higher voltage than NiMHs.

Topic: Embedding / Embedding, need larger window

It is working.

< iframe src=“h_tp://gigapan.org/gigapans/GIGAPAN_ID/options/nosnapshots,hidetitle/iframe/2.0/flash.html?height=600” frameborder=“0” height=“600” scrolling=“no” width=“100%” >

In this example, the height value is 600, no snapshots, and title is hidden. This uses the new viewer (note “/2.0/” in frame url). To use the old viewer, simply remove “/2.0”.

The height value is entered 2x:
1) flash.html?height=600 to resize the flash viewer
2) height=“600” to resize the iframe

IMPORTANT: The iframe code does not work if you load and view the webpage locally from your computer’s hard drive. The webpage must be uploaded to a server and viewed online.

Options: hidecontrols,nosnapshots,hidetitle (no spaces between options)

To find the GIGAPAN_ID, visit your GigaPan and find it at the end of the URL.

Full screen option is disabled by default when using the iframe method for embedding.

I think it still doesn’t work like before. I I set the height parameters, it makes the framework bigger, but the height of the gigapan windows remains the same, quite small.
Thanks in advance.

Topic: Embedding / How to embed in wordpress blog

Neither the code generated from the embed wizard (available for embedding your own gigapans) or the code generated by the embed link on a gigapan’s page seem to work at my WordPress site. Most troubling, if that code is added to a post that already has working embedded gigapans, it breaks those. Four out of the last five posts at http://fastie.net/ have gigapans embedded using three different types of code that all work. None of these is the syntax generated by the embed wizard.

Has anyone had any problems doing this? I’m a wordpress newbie, but I can embed youtube videos no problem, but the code from gigapan doesn’t seem to work, even though it looks similiar. Is there a widget out there?

Topic: Photo Editors / Freeware

Here’s a list of freeware I’ve used to work on gigapans for those on a budget, feel free to make suggestions.

Gimp – similar to Photoshop, I’ve used it up to 500 megapixel images, not sure about larger sizes.

UFRaw – plugin or standalone for Gimp to edit RAW files. You can set it to automate multiple photos with minimal programming.

Topic: Embedding / Embedding, need larger window

I think (fingers crossed) that all of the iframe embedding formats should work at this point. You should be able to specify the height as a query string argument and have it honored by the rendered iframe.

Topic: Embedding / FullScreen Option in Embedded

The plan is eventually to role out the new AS3 based viewer in the iframe embeds. No real time estimates but I should think soonish (more than a day, less than a year).

Topic: Web Site and Forum / Fewer people viewing Gigapans

I just rechecked and there’s now a dedicated area for Recent Gigapans. We just need to clock on “View” (not one of the options that pops up) scroll down the page a little instead of looking at the top menu bar for a button there’s a section that says Recent Gigapans.

Thanks for doing that.

Topic: Embedding / Embedding, need larger window

In case someone deserves praise for fixing this, thanks very much for fixing the parsing of embedding code. In the last day or two, the embedded gigapans here (http://conservation.townofsalisbury.org/panoram…) began to work again for the first time in a week or two. An example of the embedding code used there is:
“_iframe_src=”h_tp://api.gigapan.org/beta/gigapans/29395/snapshots/102242,109651,109655,102240,109653,102241/options/hidetitle/iframe/flash.html?height=275"
width=“900” height=“387” frameborder=“0” scrolling="no"></iframe"

I am glad I didn’t spend too much time trying to rewrite the code.

Thanks again!

(Is there a better way to include HTML in a post here that does not require intentional misspellings?)

Topic: Web Site and Forum / Total Views

The ‘Total Views’ reported for individual GigaPans, such as this beautiful GigaPan of Everest http://www.gigapan.org/gigapans/93839, does not increase (it is currently stuck at 0, yet I have shown this particular GigaPan to multiple people)

Some GigaPans views do seem to increase, but not by much.

GigaPan.org site needs a public bug tracking place rather than littering up this forum, please advise.

Topic: Web Site and Forum / Can't access profile and other observations

Hi William

The URL would not be find-able by Google on its own, but if you put it on an index-able webpage, then it could definitely be found. Perhaps if Gigapan.org added the ‘noindex’ meta tag to the head of private pages, that would prevent this risk.

Topic: Web Site and Forum / Can't access profile and other observations

I’d guess this is a related bug, but my account didn’t automatically upgrade to Plus with image uploads. And although I’m logged in, I can access the page to create a new account. I’d think that page would have a logout requirement for access.

Topic: Web Site and Forum / Can't access profile and other observations

Thanks for the idea, Jason. I’m more concerned about whether the image might be found by search engine bots that could potentially bypass the need to know a complex URL. I have no idea if that’s a legitimate concern or not.

Topic: Embedding / FullScreen Option in Embedded

Bharat,

The Embedder does not seem to use the same Gigapan Flash viewer that is in the ‘new’ Gigapan site. The new flash viewer is an Actionscript 3 product and has the full screen code added to it. The viewer is a complete rewrite, it just looks the same as the old viewer. The Embedder is using the old viewer.

I do not know of a technological reason for using the old viewer and not the new viewer, if GigaPan would switch to the new viewer for embedding, the full screen button would be available.

Also, its not technologically impossible to add the full screen button to the old viewer either, there is the option in Actionscript 2 for that.

Topic: Web Site and Forum / What happened to all the google earth data

Hi Tim,

The position of your GigaPans is not just at 0 degrees latitude (equator), they are also at 0 degrees longitude (prime meridian).

I suspect the data is not lost, but it does sound like a bug. If a GigaPan has positional data, it should have the link to view in Google Earth. If it does not, the map should not show up. Yours seem to be a hybrid case of having partial data, so the map shows up, but no link.
