- The Whale & Dolphin Conservation Society has taken the progressive-image-tiles-through-Flash approach (a la Zoomify in Photoshop CS3) and done something most cool: presenting a life-sized whale online. I love the subtle touch of including aquatic schmutz that floats past the whale & viewer. [Via]
- NASA’s STEREO-B observatory recently caught a lunar transit of the sun. Check out this (literally) otherworldly video of the event. [Via]

Thanks for the Science Friday Assortment. Very interesting stuff, including the whale. Hope those aren’t plastic shopping bags floating by, thought I saw one with VONS.

The lunar transit is so nice it almost looks fake.
I heard you’re coming to Brazil, Photoshop conference in may. Unfortunately I won’t be in São Paulo to watch the keynote.
great blog !
[Cool, thanks. You’ll just have to invite me back to Brazil, then, eh? 😉 –J.]
This is an amazing image and a very creative way of using the Zoomify feature. I have been using CS3 beta for a few months now and experimented with the zoomify feature myself. This image is really inspiring and amazing..
[Groovy–glad you like it. FYI, the version that will ship in CS3 is functionally the same but has a lot of key bugs fixed. Therefore the output is much, much more usable. –J.]
I am very happy with CS3. Keep up the good work John. You are on my blogroll at WordPress….
Thanks for sharing. I am learning CS3 now and this give me some hope.
