At our October meeting on 10/14/17 we’ll have several items of business.
1) ISCC Contest
PSSCC will be selecting entries for the first round of the ISCC competition at our October meeting. We will need 6 entries with no more than 2 entries per person. The format for the images is the same as last year:
Each stereo Image for the PSA-ISCC should be a single image file consisting of the stereo pair with the left image on the left side and the right image on the right side. Image width (horizontal) of each individual image should be exactly 1400 pixels and the height (vertical) should be 1050 pixels, resulting in a combined image file width (horizontal) of 2800 pixels and an image height (vertical) of 1050 pixels. Where the image is not to an exact 4:3 format, image centered black banding is to be used to convert the image to the required 2 x 1400 x 1050 format.
This can be most easily achieved with the StereoPhotomaker “resize” tool in the “Edit” menu option. Select the “Keep Aspect-ratio with border” button and, in the two boxes type 1400 for X and 1050 for Y.
Select the Resample option if it is not already checked and hit OK. Save your image with a new name so that you do not over-write the original.
There is no limit on the size (in megabytes) of the files, so do not use a lot of compression when saving the JPEG image.
