"What if your camera could see everything you can see? The human visual system has a field of view of around 135 x 200 degrees, but a typical camera has a field of view of only 35 x 50 degrees. Panoramic image mosaicing works by taking lots of pictures from an ordinary camera, and stitching them together to form a composite image with a much larger field of view. AutoStitch takes a step forward in panoramic image stitching by automatically recognising matching images. This allows entire panoramas to be constructed with no user input whatsoever. AutoStitch is incredibly simple to use! Just select a set of photos, and AutoStitch does the rest: digital photos in, panoramas out. Mobile versions are no longer available, sorry! Please try the free demo instead" -- "AutoStitch is now available in the following commercial products: Autopano Pro (Windows, Mac, Linux) Serif PanoramaPlus (Windows) Calico (Mac) The version of AutoStitch on this website is a demo only. Individuals or companies are free to use images that they generate using the demo version of AutoStitch without restriction or royalties so long as they acknowledge the use of AutoStitch in such works. A commercial license to AutoStitch provides access to the patent, source code, technical support and updates" #windows #mac #apps #images #merges #$kippt_bookmark #academia #free #pub
"According to his study—conducted with one of his students, Christine Brophy—of the relationship between political belief and personality, political correctness exists in two types: PC-Egalitarianism and PC-Authoritarianism, which is a manifestation of "offense sensitivity".[38] The first type is represented by a group of classical liberals, while the latter by the group known as "social justice warriors"[7] who "weaponize compassion".[2] The study also found an overlap between PC-authoritarians and right-wing authoritarians.[38]" #fighting_for #against_sjws #PC_Bro #against_PC_Bro #academia #influencers #pub
