Finally, in most cases, you're probably not going to want stars in every image on a particular shoot, so a lot of screwing and unscrewing the filter might be in order.

Star filters, like polarizing filters, can rotate, and spinning the filter rotates the star points around the light source, so the filter allows for a little bit of customization

Kitty Fisher's insight:

This is a simple effect, a star quality that may enhance your image the way you want it. And actually this is at a fraction of the price for a regular star effect app.

I personally feel it should be studied as “part of a whole.” Then only the real face of DIP can be perceived. My abstract model is an outcome of 'part of a whole' philosophy.

How to Use Adobe Photoshop for Batch Image Processing

How to Use Adobe Photoshop for Batch Image Processing | Image Effects, Filters, Masks and Other Image Processing Methods | Scoop.it

Batch processing is quite a tedious job if there are numerous files but Adobe Photoshop is a tool that simplifies this process to a considerable level. Below mentioned are the steps to be followed through the process. 


We can convert the files using image processor. This conversion is easy and we don't have to perform a lot of actions.


There is an action palette option in Photoshop through which one can prepare the photos and the same process of conversion can be applied to various images. This whole process is known as batch.


This can be a time saving job as zip folders can be easily created with the same task.


Now, to understand the process more clearly we will take an example, to resize the image that is taken from a digital camera. As the resolutions of digital cameras are very high with high number of pixels, here we will take a process how to reduce the pixel size.


Kitty Fisher's insight:

Adobe's use of image processing can be grouped up in a batch. Talk about time saving and eventually you will be zipping through your work load, faster and faster. If a couple of your photos need to be readjusted to size and the pixels need to be a bit more in quality, here you go. And your original images will be sized along with your resized image in it's own separate folder.

In-store processing of film gives way to digital image cards

In-store processing of film gives way to digital image cards | Image Effects, Filters, Masks and Other Image Processing Methods | Scoop.it

In-store processing of film into snapshots is going the way of 8-track tapes, the fax machine and printed encyclopedias.

Walgreens two Great Falls drug stores, at 2301 10th Ave. S. and 1213 3rd St. NW., still provide one-hour processing for 35 millimeter film and disposable cameras, but is expected to phase out that service within the next year or so, said John Hanifen, community leader overseeing area Walgreen stores.

“We’re the only ones in town still doing it, but we’ve been told by corporate officials they’ll phase that out here, but we’re not sure how soon,” he said.

Hanifen said he wasn’t given the corporate rationale, but the “wet lab” equipment used in film development and printing takes up more room and the process is harder and more time consuming than digital, both for photo technicians and the buying public. That’s because customers have to take film in and pick up pictures later, he said. In contrast, they can edit their digital images and select which ones they want on a home computer or smart phone and send them electronically to the store. The prints can be ready when they drive in.“Our photo managers have been feverishly tutoring our regular film customers how to convert to using digital cameras with memory cards instead of film,” he said. “They’re showing them how much easier it can be.”

Kitty Fisher's insight:

Keeping the traditional of 'dropping off your film and coming back an hour later to receive your prints.' Now days you can bring in your SD card, edit the images yourself and then wait a few minutes and walla...printed images. And the easy to use factor is in there as well. So it's not exactly hard to see why printed film processing is falling from our traditional ways...but should we preserve those physical elements? I think we should.

The JPEG standard made its debut in 1991 (publicly in 1992), and since then it's become the most widely used lossy compression format for digital images. Now, The Independent JPEG Group at the Leipzig Institute for Applied Informatics - the folks responsible for defining the standard - has released an all new version 9.1 of the software library that comes with some powerful new abilities.
