  1. I always love seeing other people's work as well as sharing my own for other people to see. So I thought I'd start this thread for people to share their work and get critique and tips (if wanted/asked for). Share your latest masterpieces whether it be a simple snapshot, an edit, a repaint, a morph, anything Second Life related. I'll start it off....
  2. So I discovered by *accident* that the Lindens are working on a (super-secret?) 360 Snapshot project. I never saw it announced! Well-played, Lindens, well-played indeed! Anyway, I thought I'd create this thread to show-off wonderful places I've found using 360-Snapshots (as in 360º Snapshots) because the usual "flat" snapshots just don't do some of these places justice! I'll tell you how (if you want to give it a go) inaminute, but first a coupe, from Lutz! (If you don't see it: click on the picture and drag your mouse): http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Templemore City/127/88/28 SO here's how to do it if you want! Grab the LL "Second Life Project 360 Snapshot Viewer" (Mac, Windows) here: http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Linden_Lab_Official:Alternate_Viewers Position your camera where you want, then choose WORLD->CAPTURE 360 If you like the preview, then click SAVE LOCAL (and give it a good name) Upload directly to FLICKR (if you want to embed it here) or any other 360 Photo hosting website Open the 360 image in Flickr (so you see it as a 360 Image with click-and-drag) - Copy the URL Create a reply in this thread and paste the URL THEN, go back to Flickr, click "SHOW EXIF" and copy the SLURL and paste it into your message too. That's it! A couple things to note: It's an experimental viewer, it's very stable for me (the SL Viewer part is rock-solid), though sometimes the 360 image doesn't capture some prims and mesh objects, so you may have to reposition and experiment a bit, Also, don't edit your 360 images because then you may erase all the meta whatevers that Flickr uses to make it a true 360-image. Even if I am the only one to post here then so be it. It's a shiny new toy from Linden lab and I hope they keep developing it! Though I hope some of you will join me! This is just a post to kick it off, I already have a new place to show you in my next post!
  3. I figured I'd create a new thread so I wouldn't "necro" an old one. Here goes. I see some gorgeous pictures throughout. (especially in How Does Your Avatar Look Today,) and I saw the part in that forum where lighting was explained. Anyway, I thought I would show you this picture, then tell how I did it. Zero post-editing work, 100% SL viewer and no "photo tools" or any filter-trickery, (not even so much as cropping). This can be done in the Official LL viewer. Here is the finished picture: Here is how I did it: First, I've created a "Photo Lights" attachment I can attach to my chin anywhere. It uses the standard three-light set-up: Main, Fill, Backlight. If anyone wants this attachment, IM me here or in-world: I'll give it to you (or you can make your own): (Yus! My typo: in the third image, the light to the lower-front of me is the *FILL* light - so much for my attempt at a perfect post) ~Groans~ After I select a pose, I edit the lights and turn on EDIT LINKED - I position them how I want them to be. In the properties I usually change the color, I think I have the intensity, fall-off, and that stuff set about right. Then I may play with changing the colors of each light, in my finish example I set the Main to blue and the Back to red, and left the fill as white. Once my lights are set, I turn off EDIT LINKED then just set the texture to transparent. Now I deal with camera angle and *Field of View*. FOV is what we always call "zoom" and people don't understand what it does. So I'll tell you: It removes (or adds) *lens distortion*. It's easier to show you: This is the "default" camera view. Looks normal, right? Now look at 8x "Zoom" (hold CTRL and tap 0 eight times) The differences are in the legs and head: no distortion; this is my true shape. And if we go the opposite: (CTRL+8 three times from default) FYI: CTRL+9 always sets your camera back to default view. So now that I have my camera angle the way I like it (foreground, background, lighting, etc.) - I turn on my "Focal Length" - a.k.a. "Defocussing Background" (It's not called Bokeh, by the way - Bokeh is the Japanese word to describe defocussed dust and other particles in the foreground; FYI) The problem with the way this works is that you have to ALT+[CLICK] to focus something, everything else gets defocussed. This creates the dreaded "Bullseye" framing. So the way to move your camera to position your subject off-center (such as the "rule-of-thirds," etc.) is to use the key commands: ALT+arrow: move forward/back and left/right around ALT+CTRL+arrow: - Rotate up/down and left/right around ALT+CTRL+SHIFT+arrow: raise/lower and crab left/right without changing the camera angle. In this case, I did ALT+CTRL+SHIFT and tapped the left arrow a couple times. This is how I put my subject off-center: For my final image (above) I also selected the "Auto-Contrast" filter built into the snapshot tool. Also, I left all lights white so you can see their effect directly. So there you go. That's how to do great "photography" in SL without relying on expensive HUDs or viewer tools like FS Phototools. These pictures, including the final one, are 100% viewer-created, no post work in any off-line apps or anything. ANYWAY: What tips or tricks do YOU have to share? Include pictures (and it's okay if you use Phototools or whatever else and even post-editing in your offline app) - but explain to us how you did it! (No need for step-by-steps or anything, just tell us what you did )
  4. Hello there, i wasn't sure where to post this so i apologise in advance if i'm in the wrong section and trust that it will be moved to the correct slot. I've been trying to upload snapshots to Twitter without success. This is a feature that, AFAIK, is offered across all viewers, but doesn't appear to work on any consistently. Any ideas on anything i can do myself to eliminate this annoying bug if, in fact, that's what it is? I'm assuming a bug because i hear that the Twitter feature works for some people and not others. I really, REALLY want this feature to work. I'd be very grateful for any theories or suggestions offered. Thank you. :-)
  5. hello for months now I have had snapshots stuck on you have 4 snapshots processing im a little upset these have never uploaded were memories of rp of mine does anybody know a way to have it investigated where they have gone or can be fixed thanks
  6. I have been posting snapshots to my profile feed without any problems for years. Today I realized that nothing was uploaded for the last 4 months. Has LL changed something? Could something in my preferences/settings be the problem?
