Can Young Men Take Viagra

August 4, 05

Can young men take viagra Hugin iconHugin is a cross-platform GUI that allows the user to “assemble a mosiac of photographs into a complete immersive panorama, can young men take viagra stitch any series of overlapping pictures and much more.” Having long wanted to create panoramas but lacking the skills and time to make one that looks good, can young men take viagra Hugin seemed like the perfect tool for me.

Can young men take viagra I went to the Hugin for OSX port page, can young men take viagra navigated to the download section, can young men take viagra and grabbed a copy. Can young men take viagra After downloading, can young men take viagra I quickly realized that like most open source programs, can young men take viagra the documentation on how to use Hugin was sorely lacking. Can young men take viagra I eventually learned how to do what I wanted to do through trial and error as well as reading numerous tutorials scattered around the web.

Can young men take viagra My first headache was getting Autopano to work, can young men take viagra which is arguably the most important tool that Hugin can use. Can young men take viagra When it works, can young men take viagra Autopano scans through the images you add to Hugin, can young men take viagra finds where they overlap, can young men take viagra and figures out the best way to stitch the images together. Can young men take viagra The version of Autopano linked within Hugin’s tools folder requires that the Mono environment be installed on your computer to work, can young men take viagra so pick that up first.

Can young men take viagra After installing Mono, can young men take viagra I noticed the following line in Hugin’s explanation on how to get Autopano working:

Can young men take viagra There are two ways of using Autopano-SIFT from HuginOSX. Can young men take viagra One is very easy, can young men take viagra but does not always work, can young men take viagra and hence not supported. Can young men take viagra The other should work as long as you set up autopano-sift correctly, can young men take viagra but it involves editing shell script.

Can young men take viagra As usually happens, can young men take viagra the very easy way did not work for me, can young men take viagra so I had to do some minor shell script editing. Can young men take viagra After following the instructions and properly setting up the AUTOPANO_PATH variable and changing every instance of “generatekeys.exe” to “generatekeys-sd.exe” in the autopano-complete.sh file, can young men take viagra I thought I was ready to rock.

Can young men take viagra However, can young men take viagra Hugin quickly let me know that my rocking was yet to happen. Can young men take viagra Instead, can young men take viagra it gave me this error:

Error message from HuginOSX

Can young men take viagra I double, can young men take viagra triple, can young men take viagra and quadruple checked my changes to the shell script, can young men take viagra and I couldn’t find what I’d done wrong. Can young men take viagra I completely removed Autopano from my computer and downloaded a new copy to insure I hadn’t inadvertently changed something else.

Can young men take viagra Eventually, can young men take viagra I realized that Autopano does not like it when the images you’ve added to Hugin have spaces in their path or filename. Can young men take viagra So after changing the folder and file names (in the example case seen in the error message above from “folder with spaces” to “folder”), can young men take viagra my images were analyzed and properly linked.

Can young men take viagra I’m not going to go into the finer points of optimizing the panorama by adding vertical and horizontal lines or any other such thing - I do not have the experience or knowledge of Hugin to be considered a source on such things. Can young men take viagra But with the little experience that I do have, can young men take viagra I was able to successfully turn thirteen separate images into this:

Pano after Hugin and Autopano stiched it up

Can young men take viagra If you click on the image to see a larger version, can young men take viagra you’ll see that the stitching areas between images are very visible, can young men take viagra and very ugly. Can young men take viagra This is where Enblend comes in. Can young men take viagra Although Enblend can be run from within Hugin by selecting the “into a high quality TIFF file” option in Quick Stitcher, can young men take viagra I recommend against it. Can young men take viagra Instead, can young men take viagra export everything as multiple TIFF files.

Can young men take viagra Once this is complete, can young men take viagra you can run the images through Enblend via the command line in Terminal. Can young men take viagra An example command would be:

/Applications/HuginOSX/tools/enblend/enblend -v -o \\
/Path/To/Save/Final/Pano/Image.tiff \\
/Path/To/Image/1.tiff \\
/Path/To/Image/2.tiff \\
/And/So/On.tiff

Can young men take viagra Enblend takes quite a while (can be many hours depending on image size, can young men take viagra number of images, can young men take viagra and processor speed) to do it’s stuff, can young men take viagra and I prefer running it through the terminal so I can free up system resources by closing Hugin. Can young men take viagra There isn’t any sort of progress indicator or time remaining information in enblend, can young men take viagra so I run it with the -v flag (verbose) to keep me from thinking my computer froze.

Can young men take viagra Enblend looks at the various parts of the TIFF files that overlap, can young men take viagra and figures out how to blend them. Can young men take viagra It will blend images over a wide area in parts of the images where there is little variation in the surrounding area - like in skies and clouds - and will blend images in a very small area where people won’t notice a harsh transition - like in rocky areas or in tree trunks.

Can young men take viagra If you compare the image below to the image above, can young men take viagra you’ll see how great a job enblend does:

Can young men take viagra For the next step, can young men take viagra I played around with enblend’s exported TIFF image in Photoshop. Can young men take viagra I used the Stamp tool and Gaussian blur filter almost exclusively, can young men take viagra and am pretty happy with the results. Can young men take viagra There are some areas I could spend more time in, can young men take viagra like making the sky areas that I added look more uniform, can young men take viagra but overall I think it looks pretty good for a first try.

Can young men take viagra My biggest gripe with the Hugin is its lack of documentation. Can young men take viagra There are numerous options and optimization modes that are not referenced anywhere in the help. Can young men take viagra Sure, can young men take viagra I can look around online for most of the information, can young men take viagra but it would save every new user a half-day’s worth of time if all of that information was put in the one place it should be - Hugin’s help file.

Can young men take viagra That’s not to say Hugin and its associated tools are bad, can young men take viagra because they aren’t - they just lack the information necessary for new users to get up to speed in a short amount of time. Can young men take viagra

Can young men take viagra Some statistics from the project:

  • Total pictures stitched: 13
  • Final resolution of panorama: 17964 x 2529 pixels.
  • Total time necessary for me to be at computer: ~30 mins.
  • Total time my computer spent on processing the images: ~6 hours

Can young men take viagra In case you’re curious, can young men take viagra the panorama shows what you can see from the top of Mt. Can young men take viagra Rose, can young men take viagra the third highest peak in the Lake Tahoe Sierra. Can young men take viagra You can see some other pictures from the hike here.

    I was having the same problem with spaces and couldn’t figure out what was going wrong. Thanks for clearing it up!

    You really could have just used photostitch 3.1. It came in the box with your camera and requires about 3 clicks and a hair under 6 hours to stitch pictures.
