    Exactly what I thought it's based on multiple exposures and tracking, something video editors have been doing for years.

      That strategy or at least parts of it came from fluid dynamics, so it goes back further than that. It's not a new concept. It's an improvement, and I haven't seen anything that work that well even in demo form. The thing would require a huge amount of work to be of use to a casual user. Right now it uses a large amount of memory and requires several minutes to process an image of reasonable resolution. The second author posted the paper. It's currently the first link under news, and it's quite readable compared to a lot of research papers. Some of the notation might be unfamiliar, but it's at least standard notation.

      This stuff always involves iterative improvements, but if it doesn't break due to point source lights, flare, or motion in the scene, it would be a pretty enormous improvement. It's hard to get that stuff to work with little to now user interaction.

        What would you do with the color in these pics? Creativity!
        by biskit27

        I've been retouching a lot of photos recently, and I've come to the point where I've focused so much on the actual retouching that I've lost any inspiration I might have had as to what to do with the picture after the retouched foundation is there. I might just be burned out and out...

        Perfect Seamless Paper Backgrounds with Gradients
        by dan_yusay
        Does any one have any suggestions on how to get perfectly even colors in seamless backgrounds with shadow gradients? Even with a brand new roll of seamless paper that I try to have layed perfectly there still seems to be unevenness especially when it comes to whites and grays. I've tried different...

        If it's not good, I don't want to fix it
        by drode
        This was a quote from Jay Maisel in a recent video with Scott Kelby. It struck me as profound on two levels.

        First and most obvious was the idea that one should start with a quality image and go from there. One will rarely take a poor image and make it great and a mediocre final image...

        Blow it Up
        by thomasgeorge
        Over the past two weeks I have been experimenting with a piece of equipment which, by all rights, should not do a very good job of enlarging tiny sections of photos, but has consistantly surprised me with the results. This all began in a quest to find a some what easy way to satisfy the customer who...
