blowing up buildings….photo-wise.

June 21, 2002

My eyes are sore, I’ve been working on a couple of photo retouches at work. A lot of what I’m doing is taking high quality photos, opening Photoshop and blow them up to about 800% so I can remove power lines from these photos. I did a couple last week as a test. I wound up removing lines, telephone poles, corners of buildings that block the view, and skewing the building so it looks like it wasn’t taking at that extreme of an angle. I’m working with a really good photographer on the photos. I almost wish I had a home setup like I have at work so I could do this on the side. It’s very nice, being able to blow up a 600dpi image on an 18″ lcd screen on the mac. Here is the before….and the after.
