Family: Just a couple of vacation pix

>> Wednesday, February 28, 2007

We were at Disneyland a couple of months ago, and here's a few of the best photos. Since I'm on the subject, I'll mention a nerdy anecdote about Disney photos: They've gone digital with their Disney PhotoPass, which I totally support. The way it works is this: In prime photo spots, you'll find an official photographer who'll hand your your PhotoPass (if you don't already have one), and snap your family's picture. All the photos get stored on an account which you can access online from home, later, or at certain kiosks in the parks.

Naturally, they want you to buy their prints which are fairly expensive, but with the online service, you get to see the photo at a size that's worthy of sharing online with friends and family. If you're technically proficient enough, you can also figure out how to get print-worthy photos from their online service! I was able to do this, although it's VERY cumbersome -- they've programmed their graphics service pretty well to make it so. All it takes is some manipulating the querystring to change the zoom level, and a little Photoshop work; I had to take nine zoomed-in pictures at 320 x 240 and patch them together to get what I achieved.
