Photoshop Help needed.....

16 June 2011 - 10:41 AM

Hi guys,

Am hoping someone can chime in and give me some help with a little project.

Lunar eclipse last night. Had camera on tripod and fixed focal length. Want to make a panoramic montage of images showing the moon going through the phases of the eclipse. Not super sharp as really did not have the right lens. Used 135mm with 2x and 1.4x converted. Not looking for perfect image quality just for a bit of fun. However I have 571 raw files!!!! What is the best way to do this.

I am thinking of cropping each image to just contain the moon at the same size and then layer in photoshop. Unfortunately as the earth is always revolving I had to keep moving the camera to keep the moon in the frame (every 20 shots or so) so I realize this will be quite manual! Once this is done is there a way of off setting each layer by a specific amount to the previous one, I hope so as this will save me a ton of time.

If there are any other / better / quicker methods please let me know.

Here is a quick sample to show kind of what I am looking to create.

Help needed to save Ras Mohammed

17 May 2011 - 05:41 AM

The governor of South Sinai, Egypt has made a decree to allow fishing in the National Park of Ras Mohammed. He will also allow fishing during the spawning season. There is a lot of information on CDWS facebook page and HEPCA.

Please take a minute to lend your support by signing the petition and hopefully we can reverse this descion before the National Park is destroyed!


Many Thanks in advance
