“Liquid Resize is a “content aware” image resizing application for Mac OS X and Windows. Liquid Resize is now available for download as a Product Preview from onOne Software. Liquid Resize will allow you to resize an image without traditional geometric limitations while minimizing any distortion that would typically result from changing the original aspect ratio of an image.”
It’s only a Product Preview (I think that means Beta), but this is pretty nifty tech. It was only a few months ago that I first saw this idea online.
Title 17 of the US Code says that copyright protection is in effect from the time the work is created in fixed form. If somebody steals your work, you can sue them and collect actual damages, the amount of money that you’re out by the infringer not properly licensing the work. Actual damages. Hmmm. No punitive damages? Nope. For that, you have to register the work. James Duncan Davidson explains it all on his blog.
Many photographers are dismayed at the apparent softness in their digital captures. Not surprising: they’re used to seeing nice sharp chromes. Most digital SLRs have an antialiasing filter in front of the sensor, and this introduces a slight softness. The filter is there to reduce moiré caused by aliasing: camera sensors are a grid of light receptors and that grid is very much like shooting through a screen door. Any high-frequency pattern in your subject can cause interference resulting in moiré. more after the jump
