After a fantastic massage as a GroupOn gift from my fiance, I spoke with Spa Willamina owner, Willow Light about marketing opportunities in new media.  She has successfully used GroupOn and other couponing services already, but wanted something visual that reached acrossed search engines and social media that would be inviting to prospective clients.  I pitched her my services in gigapixel photography and the Photosynth/Bing Maps platform, and it was exactly what she has been looking for.  She had wanted a "virtual tour" of the beautiful Portland home her and her husband have rennovated into a sanctuary from workaday life for her clients, but she hadn't found anything that would do the place justice, yet.
The next week,she had her friend Terry in to stage the spa with flowers, etc. I was excited to see that they were putting in the extra effort.  Within 24 hours, the images were up.

Thanks, Nate!  Check out the U2 GigaPixel FanCam I just shot down in LA over the weekend.  This was Friday night http://www.u2.com/gigapixelfancam/110617/ and Saturday night's image will be up soon (and should have much less blurry faces).  I'm afraid the moment and the crowd got to my photog skills up there on stage.

I've been meaning to remind you that if you tag all the photos that will be used by ICE with the same 'Author' before you stitch the pano, that the appropriate name will appear next to the license symbol in the lower left corner of the pano.

The same goes for synths, except that in a synth, each photo can have a unique author.

Anyhow, I haven't gone looking back through all your work to see if you've done this before, but each time I see one of your beautiful panoramas Copyrighted to... no one, I cringe a little. Granted, it would be helpful to be able to edit this information, once the pano/synth was already uploaded, but things being what they are, I thought I'd at least remind you of how to get your name (or at least username) next to your selected license.

Nate, I did not know that, and you're right. Now, I have to cringe a little, too.  Thanks, I'll add that step to my workflow in the future.
