Topic: Web Site and Forum / Bug: Can't add/remove featured gigapans/members to group

Tried different browser, but the “add” and “remove” buttons don’t react, so you can’t select the featured gigapans/members for a group.
Workaround: Extract the ajax urls from sourcecode.

Btw: the page navigation at this pages doesn’t work as well.

Topic: Web Site and Forum / Fewer people viewing Gigapans

While the changes that nathanw mention do help, it is still not easy to find the most recent button.
Jasons point is still valid. I used to enjoy going to the site and “one clicking” the most recent and browsing. All the current setup is doing really is making the most popular more popular.

There are a few nice things about the new site but in truth not many. I do not feel encouraged to put my new gigapans up so have tended to keep them on my computer.

Topic: Web Site and Forum / Can't place gigapan in GoogleEarth

Yes, I can hardly wait to see it working again. A fix for Google Earth placement is in the works. The first part is in testing right now, and it will hopefully be available shortly.

Topic: General Gigapanning / estimate number of photo

How do I do a simple pan photo. Left to right, no up or down, just shoot a 180 or 360 degree straight image.

Topic: api.gigapan.org / is there no API anymore

I guess my statistics pages are not quite back to normal. Although I have about 90 public gigapans, my call to the API is returning only 60. The URL I am using is:
h_tp://api.gigapan.org/beta/gigapans/page/1/per_page/100/username/cfastie/most_recent.json?callback=process_json

The “jdata.per_page” variable is apparently coming back equal to 60, even though the URL tries to set it to 100.

This must be due to a change in the way the API works. Is there a way to get all 90 gigapans returned in one page?

Thanks

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.

Topic: Embedding / Embedding, need larger window

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).
