My new entries are posted at dd-b.net

Apologies to those of you who have seen this before. I wanted to construct a clear and up-to-date explanation, and hack the date so it will pop up for anybody who friends this account (which they might do based on my commenting using it).

My actual blog is elsewhere. There is an LJ feed of it available at ddb_net. I use this account only for commenting on LJ (and the very occasional LJ-specific post).

Do please go back over to my real blog to leave comments -- that way I'll actually see them. You can use OpenID to log in there with your LJ, DreamWidth, or other blog handle, or you can create a local account.

Birthday Dim Sum

Seems like LJ isn't updating RSS feeds, so people reading the ddb_net feed may not have seen that I'm having a birthay Dim Sum gathering this Sunday. See http://dd-b.net/ for details.

And if LJ has in fact given up on RSS feeds, you'll have to use your own RSS reader or visit my real blog directly to keep up on me.

Feed of my non-LJ site

markgritter has kindly established an LJ feed from dd-b.net at ddb_net. If you have dd_b on your friends list you should probably add (or switch to) the feed as well, because posting is going to happen there rather than here. I'll still be using dd_b to read and comment on other LJ users of course.

The new feed has just been splorfed with the accumulated articles I've converted over to the new content management system on my site.

Photographic Workflow

I have just posted a relatively long article on my current photographic workflow in my redesigned website. Most such things will be posted there in future rather than here. Not that I've mostly posted that much here anyway.

I've also pulled out a bunch of old articles that existed but were hard to find/get to before, some of them might be of interest to a few of you.

If somebody with a paid account wants to create an LJ feed from there, that might be a good thing.

Seam Carving -- fascinating tool for image adjustments

The examples are mostly resizing -- with less important areas removed, rather than everything made smaller. The examples find less visually important areas very effectively, and remove them very cleanly; of course I don't know how carefully they cherry-picked their examples.

There's a video on YouTube, mostly showing actual examples.

This work is by Shai Avidan & Ariel Shamir. In addition to the video there's a Siggraph paper which I haven't read.

No free Photoshop plugin yet :-).
