Some special experiments with some of my older photos

After I had posted some of my newest photos (mostly in 4:3) in my other thread "My Photos of Parks in Berlin 2016" in Autumn 2016:
http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?t=398665
I want to post now some photo-edits in 16:9.

From my cheap Praktika Pentacon Luxmedia I should not expect too much, that's the reason, why I didn't post my 10 photos from the Park Am Buschkrug and why I didn't include them in wallpapersdesktop. Fortunately my Casio Exilim is much better, and also 16:9 is possible. Our older Medion Digital Camera is still the best.

In June 2010 I had made many photos from an event in Berlin-Britz, also from the Railway Stones (without trash between the stones). I had pre-selected 10 of 12 photos, but only 6 had come into my final selection. I would have needed some other own original photos from stones to make the cuts and mirrorings, described in my thread "Images, cut and mirrored for tiling and stretching":
http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?t=390406
and I did that with some own leaves successfully.

But suddenly I had some other ideas, and I had tested them in IrfanView, with a gamma correction less than 1.00, very low. I was right with my ideas, and I saved the edited versions with a gamma correction of 0.05, with and without full saturation. Also Frank had confirmed, that my experiments look very interesting.

Of course the versions in 2000x1120 pixel had come into my collection with my desktop wallpapers, and they look fine also in Komodo X Touchscreen by Victhor and cPro - KAO by Iron2000, 2 very good Winamp Modern Skins (SUI-Skins).

In this case the filesizes are not so large, and I can post also the versions in 4000x2240 pixel. Maximal 5 attachements per post are possible. I should begin with the first 4 of 6 images, the versions without full saturation. The next time I could post the versions with full saturation and later the numbers 0005 and 0006.

I have just posted a new Devious Journal, "My Own Music" (since my free downloadable tracks on SoundCloud cannot be downloaded anymore by users without an account there). But for this thread my older Devious Journal "Winamp forever - Music forever!!!" is important:
http://sternenmaschinebine.deviantar...ever-440352684
because I have all download-links there to my .zip-folders with my own works (if You scroll down), also 2 packs of photos with 2 pixel-widths, 4000 and 2000.

I have promised the versions with the full saturation, here they are.

Now I want to leave the numbers 0005 and 0006 for You. For me it is important anyway to begin with 0001 as first number (also 01 as first number would be okay, if a serial will have only a few images). Winamp, IrfanView and QuickPic show the presets and .jpg-files in another order than Windows Explorer, if the first image has the number 1, the 10th image the number 10, the 100th image the number 100 and the 1000th image the number 1000 in the same serial. I myself prefer to begin directly with 0001.

You can look in the following subforums from time to time:
Winamp & SHOUTcast Forums > Skinning and Design > Arts and Design
Winamp & SHOUTcast Forums > Visualizations > MilkDrop
Winamp & SHOUTcast Forums > Visualizations > MilkDrop > MilkDrop Presets
because I am interested especially for Milkdrop Presets, Winamp Skins (SUI-Skins), random textures, desktop wallpapers, Komodo backgrounds. Sometimes I open a new thread, sometimes I reply.

You know, that for skins, presets, textures and wallpapers the German letters "ä", "ö", "ü", "ß" are strictly prohibited. For the images (mostly JPG, but also PNG, DDS, TGA) I also don't want to see blank spaces and extra-signs in the filenames. Maybe an image should be coded into a preset or sprite or it should be loaded in a Modern Skin. I myself have my .jpg-files for the 2 mentioned Modern Skins in the subfolders wallpaperscprokao and wallpapersdesktop (inside of Milkdrop2).

Now about the Railway Stones: I had zoomed, because I didn't want to have other things than the stones on the photos. 4 pre-selected images didn't come into the final selection, because there are also grasses and other plants between the stones, and 2 images didn't have been pre-selected, because there are also big metallic screws between the stones, and they are necessary to fixate the railways. The stones are not sharp in the original photos. Mostly they are angular and not round. Our Sternenmaschine Band Member Birgit had made a photo in an Irish Forest with round stones at the water in Spring 2007. I myself didn't find similar stones at the water in Berlin yet.

About the metallic screws: I remember, that we had refused some suggested album artwork with the metallic screws on the trees. Later we had accepted some of the other suggestions which had looked better for us, for example with good digital artwork. But sometimes we were not really asked. We had to accept many other suggestions which didn't fit our taste.
