That's a really good point Emily, especially for anaglyph work, and looking closely there's an awful lot of "schmutz" on the lens. I created a Photoshop automation for myself in CS3 to do the task and thought it might be of use to others, so here it is.

That looks rather useful. Thanks!

While playing around with imagery, I discovered the super-useful, open-source Pannellum panorama viewer. It requires a recent Firefox, Chrome, Safari or Opera browser with WebGL support enabled, but (a) it's free, and (b) all it needs is a 360x180-degree equirectangular image from Hugin or similar.

So, armed with that, I made a quick interactive self-portrait panorama. Works quite well...

ADMIN NOTE: A few posts about the "schmutz" moved here. Left this post here as it mentions other stuff.

Nice VR there! Yes, still waiting on those few AWOL frames to complete the full anaglyph mosaic... but like you, I can't resist. Here's a quick preview of the deck in gloriously detailed full resolution...

Here is the MAHLI "self-portrait" of MSL mosaicked this WE.
MSSS did a GREAT job. I could not believe my eyes when I saw such an "oeuvre d'art"...
I chose to mosaic also those marvellous images for some French magazines, but centered on the trench left by the wheel on the "Rocknest" sand dune.
It's like Curiosity playing and saying to you : "Well, look at me UMSF Members ! I'm here !".
Enjoy ! smile.gif

These renditions of Curiosity imaging it-self are great!
I can only imagine the exquisite sense of accomplishment that all the engineers, technicians, and vendors are having, seeing something they essentially hand-built, working so far away on another planet. Makes me smile just to think about it. To all of you, Great Job!

I saw a couple of 3D images of the rover awhile back, taken on Earth. Now the best 3D yet by far (as far as I know) is its own self portrait, on Mars! Astounding.

I need to find my anaglyph specs - I feel like I'm really missing out!

Working with these images also makes me want to thank whoever planned the positioning sequence for the robot arm. There's amazingly little parallax between the shots, and any glimpse of the arm itself just disappears with stitching - putting them together, the images just fall into position. Seriously impressive.

(Request for the distant future - when Curiosity is exploring some super-lumpy terrain, a full-360-degree panorama from MAHLI with Curiosity parked next to a cliff would look amazing... ;-) )

That is a beautiful 3D product, Ed! The best that I've seen of the rover to date. Do you by chance have one of the side-by-side 3D versions? Thanks!

Sol 85: 8,14,44....can't wait to add you to the mix!

Here is my take on the anaglyph for the two Sols:

Thank you MSL rover team for giving us such astounding views.
It is an exciting time for planetary exploration!

(...and BTW, that's a nice anaglyph jardmonkey...)

The deck anaglyph was a quickly cropped draft of the yet incomplete full portraits meant for anaglyphing so I'd committed the cropped layers to the color split to spot align them in without retaining copies the full color left and right layers, but I just opened the master file and cropped them out again so here ya go. I didn't have time to fully spot align all areas of them or clone out a few artifacts, but they should match up pretty well.

So... for those without anaglyph specs right now, here's is a reduced resolution cross-eye view. The zip in the link below it has the full resolution versions for left and right, along with information on downloading and using a freeware program called "StereoPhoto Maker" that lets you load and zoom in and pan around on the high resolution versions with cross-eyed view. I just tried it and it works amazingly well. Be sure and check out the "ReadMe.txt" file I enclosed for important tips on loading them the right way for cross-eyed viewing and a "Quick Start" tutorial.

Thanks for the two originals! This makes it super easy to create an .mpo format that I can see on my 3D TV. The same is true for the side-by-side image you posted, so it's always appreciated when you master mosaic creators include the side-by-side images along with analglyphs. Please do keep up the great work!
