That would be a great tool for dealers to show off their inventory.

I am very impressed with what you have accomplished, Martyn. The second one you attached was great. I liked the larger size, and for some reason, the first one illustrated did not turn full circle for me. I will have to go back and try again. Really this feature will make a huge difference in viewing and really understanding the carving. Thanks for all your work on this!
Note: Yes the first one works well too. I just didn't wait long enough for it to load. I like the larger example better though.
Thank you Martyn! Very exciting!

Hi - a great response from the community. Thank you all for taking the time to test and provide feedback.

Based on your responses I will stick with 640 on the page - and 1600 (full HD) on full screen. I now feel pressured into building a forum interface sooner, rather than later :shock:

The one issue I have been thinking through is how I can design an interface as simple as possible so it encourages all the community to use the new feature. Watch this space. Until that point - all you need do is send me the images and I'll get it done for you manually.

I'm very impressed Roy - there are indeed 24 images. You counted them - patient of you :D You've grasped exactly what is taking place here.

No - no computer generated in-between pictures involved. Simply 24 shots around the Netsuke and the code I modified for the forum does the rest on the fly (pins it all together to make a 3D model).

I will get a photography tutorial up in the next week or so - that will provide what I've found to be the easiest method in my experiments, along with instructions on how to generate the images required.

Hi Jim :) Coincidentally, I heard from two yesterday suggesting exactly that. Yes it's great for inventory. However we've introduced the feature here to compliment enhanced study in the Journal, and on the forum.

Looks great! I can certainly see how this may enhance the experience and be used by Journal authors, dealers and Auction houses.

Would you please describe the process for taking serial photos around the netsuke in some detail?
