Are you asking what programs and formats people use for post processing an image after it is created in PV360?
If so what type of post processing are you wanting to do?
Well I'm trying to make a catalog for my company and just saving the pictures as jpeg but they were not coming out the best. I now have 2010 and am able to change the background and remove the floor. If there are any good directions to take, I would love to hear them.
Thanks Kelvin, Its nice to have tutorials to answer a few questions.
Thanks again for the help.
It really depends on whether you're going straight-to-print or you're going to do post-processing in, say, Photoshop. If you're going straight-to-print, you want to use a "lossless" (tradeoff of quality vs. file size) like tif or png. Jpeg, is of course, " lossy" and that's why you see jpeg "artifacts" format like .tif or png. PNG is nice because it has an alpha channel built into it and the file is compress. Tif is lossless, and in it's default state not compressed. What I do? I 99% of the time save as tiff 16 bit and then do post processing to optimize levels, crop etc. I would not recommend targa (tga) since it's compression is not very good (in my opinion) for CG images.
thanks for the info, the pics are all turning out great now.
So thankful to be able to learn from all the users like this, very cool stuff.
I use png most of the time, some of my stuff goes straight to the web or into manuals by our marketing department. I personally avoid jpegs for all the artifacts and "lossy" garbage that comes along with it.
I'd saw PNG will become the new web standard for images if it isn't already. Jpeg's are still good for large images and GIF's still have their place, but with the alpha channel in PNG's you can do so much more with them.
Thanks to everyone that posted comments to my question. I thought you would all be happy to know that I have finished the first catalog and it turned out so good that now I have started the full product guide for my company.
Thank you all again,
Can you post a link to the catalogue?
I will for sure post a link as soon as its put up on our web site. If your board you can go check it out anyways: http://www.metalarcinc.com/InstallGuide.html
The installation guide is the first one that I did, there is only a handful of pictures that I did with 360 in it but the product catalog will be nothing but 360 photos.
Hope you enjoy!
