  1. I've just had a similar experience. When I tried it with just two images, it omitted the second image -- the same one missing from the complete stack -- and 'stacked'just the other one. Here are the two, batch-converted to jpg from Raw originals with no editing.
  2. Aha -- the one thing I haven't tried! It worked -- thanks!
  3. This problem only started yesterday. When I try to close Photo I get this message: Even when I start up Photo and immediately try to close it it happens. I see another user has had the same problem with Designer (which close OK for me); none of the suggestions in that post work for me either. I'm running Windows 7 on a Toshiba Satellite laptop.
  4. It looks very like a piece of marquetry, with the simple shapes and -- especially -- the colours. Nice composition too. Sorry Francky -- I can't think of anything negative to say about it!
  5. Been away with no internet, so I'm a little behind the times with this! Voices done in Audacity, lip sync images done in AP and Anime Studio, final video edit in MoviePlus X6.
  6. I've had a similar experience when more than two files are involved; turning off parallel processing seems to do the trick.
  7. This year's Kasper Kristmas Kard. I can't claim any credit (kredit?) for the original image, but AP allowed me to do the fiddly bits to make the mouth shapes for lip sync and the eyes. The mouth/eye animation was done with Anime Studio 10, and the final composite in Serif's MoviePlus X6. Have a great Christmas folks!
  8. The original is in the Art Gallery in my home town of Walsall, UK. It's a very striking pencil drawing, and not at all what you'd expect from van Gogh at that stage of his career. You've done a good job with it, Hokusai.
  9. And on an unrelated topic -- why has that last image reappeared after I deleted it?
  10. I've noticed this on AP 1.5, and now I find it's present on 1.6 too. I'm using mesh warp to form mouth shapes for lip synching an animation. (I'll share it with you all on New Year's Eve ) I have two layers, one for the top lip and one for the bottom. When I click to set a node, the active layer moves very slightly down and right. When the warp is applied the layer moves back to the correct position, so it's not a problem as far as the finished image is concerned, but it does make it difficult to know precisely where I'm warping to. It only seems to be a small number of pixels, and for this application such tiny errors as might arise are negligible; but it would be a problem in other cases. Here's a screen shot with three layers (the hand is on top): This is the active layer (top lip): And the three layers before warping: And this animated gif shows the layer 'jumping' when a node is created: And in case you're wondering, it's one of Raphael's putti ... I'm running Windows 7 on a Toshiba Satellite laptop with 8GB of RAM.
  11. I've finally found time to look at this again, this time with AP 1.6. I created a pattern of black & white squares, then copied them, as above, onto another image with a random concertina pattern. (Ignore any pink bits; that's just evidence that I wasn't taking enough trouble aligning my planes!) You can see straight away that the rows don't line up. Somehow, the transform isn't applied evenly.
  12. Love 'em, Liam! As an ex-Midlander, I'd like to see your treatment of Spaghetti Junction in Birmingham (with the canal, if you like).
  13. Ah -- THAT'S what I was thinking of! I saw that original photo of DT a few days ago, and it rang a bell straight away. Unfortunately my mental belfry is not what it was, and the nearest I could come up with was one of the 'flying heads' in Picasso's Guernica, which didn't quite match. (The quiff points backwards.) You've made such a good job of this that I don't mind you beating me to it!
  14. Two persons, ostonica!
  15. Ah -- do you mean the histogram? Yes, I rely on it a lot. On the other hand, an actual on-screen spirit level would be very handy. If only I could afford a new camera ...
