The IrelandGolfTour2015 collage has returned from the framing shop.  It has been mounted/laminated and is ready for hanging alongside the 2011ScotlandGolfTour collage.

Photo collages of the tour

I’ve been wanting to learn how to use Photoshop so I bought a copy of Adobe Photoshop Elements 13 and spent some figuring out how to use the tools for blending photos together.

All three of these collages were created on a 16:9 ratio canvas that is 26.667″ wide by 15″ high.  At 300 dpi this makes each JPG file 8000 x 4500 pixels.  The 16:9 ratio was used because that is a common “widescreen” ratio used for PC laptops and widescreen computer monitors which makes the image good for desktop wallpaper.

At 300 dpi these collages should also be good for printing and mounting, or framing, to hang on the wall in your man cave.

This is the main collage.  It has more than 125 individual image layers.

This was the second collage created just for fun and to see how the tools work for selecting, clipping and erasing the background.  A amateur job with several missing feet, legs and other appendages.

Snapshots from HD Videos

I finally found a good piece of software that can take full resolution snapshots from the HD videos.  VLC media player is a popular tool for view photos and videos.  It has a function that generates images using the full resolution of the video.

The videos contain lots of swings and golf shots and views of the courses.  I’ve captured 128 snapshots and uploaded them to an album on our Flickr photo sharing website.
