Politics Filter

I need a politics filter on my SM feed, here is a great idea, we need a social media plugin that can game the system to filter out certain stuff, like for example if your sick of cat videos with cucumbers you can filter out 'cucumbers' and 'cats' or if like me you sick to death of post with dumb politics in it you could filter 'dickhead', 'politics', trump' etc. Any app designers out wanna have a go? maybe a alternate FB app, one which you control the shit you see πŸ˜‰ I'll go ya halvies πŸ™‚

I reckon you would be in a great place if you were sitting over there on that little jetty, getting ready to take your boat out on the lake for a spot of fishing, a bit photography or picnic or whatever takes you fancy.

Here is a interesting photography tip, this shot is 4 landscape images shot in the landscape orientation, handheld at 31mm in aperture priority mode, as a result of the aperture priority mode there was a fairly large difference in the exposure between the very left frame (quite bright) and the far right frame (quite dark). With pano stitching, often when the exposures are quite different you can get some not so nice line joins in the pano, usually the software (PS) is pretty good and blending them together, however in this case I tried to stitch it with both Photoshop and PTgui, however both had this rather nasty line where it could not nicely blend the images, I did not really want to spend 30 minutes trying to manually blend them together – time is precious when your kids seem to wanna stay up until 9pm πŸ™‚ – so I had pretty much left this one to the dustbin, however I thought I'll just give the Lightroom software a go and low and behold it came out perfectly. So my tip, you don't always have to got to the hardcore software, sometimes that one click automated stuff works just fine πŸ™‚ It is also, bar a few clones on the bottom right all edited in Lightroom, whilst it still does not quite have all the finer controls tweaks that I am used to from other software, it can do a marvellous job very quickly, and that counts for alot πŸ™‚

Now remember, you can zoom in and check out all the detail, see if you can find any dodgy stitching errors πŸ˜‰

  1. Sure pleased you didn't send this one to the bin. A real feast for the eyes,and did not even notice the light/dark difference,as it is almost indistinguishable.

  2. Thanks +Chris Sutton , yeah it's a bit like a un-achievable holy grail i reckon, each platform has its distinct advantages and disadvantages, I still like Flickr as a image hosting site, however as a interaction and social media it kinda sucks now, FB is rubbish for images but is really good for social interaction and now it seems gplus is really good for spam πŸ™
