Correcting and Generating

This post is basically the end-piece of the bold declaration I made earlier this year. Finally, I have finished re-GUI-ing all of my programs, including recoding and / or coding new features. You can find previous relevant posts here, here and here. This post is about the Keystone Corrector and Polorama Generator.

Apart from this year’s theme of including new features like a waitbar, try/catch-ing ‘all’ errors, remembering folders accessed, constant height of buttons & texts, etc., these two have gained a new element in their GUIs. This element is about previewing the relevant transformation. Let me show you what that means for KC. You get to see the mock-up of the region you selected (in cyan) on left and on right you are shown an outline of the fully transformed image (in green) along with the ‘corrected’ (cyan) rectangle as follows:

Let us now move towards PG. First one is for a full 360° Polorama (a bland green circle) and the second  one for a 180° Polorama with some space left empty at the center (much more colourful):

That’s all I have to say about these. You can experience them first-hand by clicking on relevant tabs above.

Next we deal with some huge numbers. Specifically, views of some of my photos on Google maps! Who knew that I had submitted these but then it’s Google… it has access to almost everything I do / keep / share online so let’s leave such philosophical questions behind and just enjoy these photos. That’ll also help increase these (already huge) numbers some more (click on the photo to read the text).
