Re: light washes out text AND noise in photoshop not in ST

Make your f-stop higher or increase the shutter speed, as your picture is way too bright. The larger the f-stop, the smaller the aperture and the less light gets into the camera. Also, angle your lights so that they aren't visible in the reflections. As for the noise, that cyan/blue looks like a col...

Re: All threads that mention LiveCD/Linux development

I can't find any place to store the ISO (I'm out of space in my Dropbox account as well) and most file sharing sites have a 200mb limit, so I'll keep looking.

Re: ScanTailor for OSX is here

Sorry, my bad. I didn't realize you were using Clang. I tried it with Clang 3.0 and got the same errors.

Tulon, is it a problem to change those matrix class properties from Private to Public in the source code?

Re: ScanTailor for OSX is here

Scan Tailor compiled 100% fine for me yesterday, but I'm using GCC 4.6.2 on Linux. What compiler were you using?

The Wiki is still affected. I haven't found any recent phpBB exploits, but DreamHost was hacked about a month ago.

Re: Negative images

We might have different understandings of the word "negate", but ImageMagick can handle all of those cases: convert black-white.png -negate white-black.png convert upside-down.png -rotate 180 rightside-up.png convert upside-down.png -flip rightside-up.png Making this work automatically would be a pa...
