A Social Network for Photographers

I just launched a new site for photographers. PhotoBuzz.biz is a full-featured site for members to upload photos, contribute to forums, post ads, and submit articles, news, and links to other sites as well as create your own blog entries.

Help create a community for photographers

PhotoBuzz.biz: A Social Network for PhotographersThe content of the following sections of PhotoBuzz.biz will be up to the members:

  • Forums (Current Topics)
    • General Photography
    • Landscape Photography
    • HDR Photography
    • Infrared Photography
  • Photos
    • Create Albums
    • Upload Photographs
  • Ads (Current Categories)
    • For Sale

In order to prevent spamming, content must be approved before it will appear on Photo Buzz. The only exceptions will be photographs and comments. I have also implemented four spam filters to prevent Photo Buzz from being overrun  by spammers. Anything identified as spam will be automatically rejected.

Use Panomonkey.com to Stitch 360×180-Degree Panoramas

Friday, November 2nd, 2012

Join Panomonkey.com and stitch 360×180-degree panoramas for free. Well, mostly for free:

Creating panoramas can be absolutely FREE on Panomonkey. Every successfully stitched panorama can be downloaded and shared to Twitter and Facebook or embedded to your website. The FREE version of the panorama is 3000 x 1500 pixels and can be viewed up to 100 times.

Hign-resolution panoramas of up to 6000 x 3000 pixels can be purchased for $2.50 / €1.80 (that’s “one banana” in Panomonkey language) and can be viewed up to 1,000 times.

Additional views of the hign-resolution panorama can be purchased in bundles of 10,000 views for one banana ($2.50 / €1.80).

The free version of your panorama will display a watermark along the bottom of the image. I’m assuming that you have to purchase the stitched image to get rid of the watermark. I haven’t purchased an image, yet, because my tests didn’t stitch properly.

For my tests, I uploaded photographs that I had successfully stitched together using Hugin or PanoramaPlus. The results were less than stellar. To be fair, PanoramaPlus also had problems with one of the sets of images, too. Neither Panomonkey.com nor PanoramaPlus have the ability to manually add control points, Hugin does.
