Flip-Pal Simple Gifts Blog Hop – Using the Stitching Software

Last weekend, I started to experiment with my new Flip-Pal Mobile Scanner.  And although I’ve not been able to do much with it this last week (been away for a few days) I have been thinking about what “gifts” I’m going to work on.  I’ve had a few ideas in mind, but hadn’t really committed to any of them.  Since this Blog Hop ends on the 25th, I figured I’d better commit to something, which I will start posting about soon.  In the meantime, I put together a demonstration of how to use the stitching software, which stitches together multiple scans into one piece.

In this example, I scanned a large, framed cross-stitch that my mom did back in 2003.  I took 12 scans and used the software to put it together into one image.  All I have to say is WOW!  I’ve recorded the whole process in real-time so that you can see not only how quick it is, but that I’ve not altered the image in any way…it really does a fantastic job!

Be forewarned, this is my first-ever video of any kind.  But I think it turned out pretty darn good in only 2 takes!  So not only was I experimenting with the scanner, I played around with the video capture feature in SnagIt.  This may have opened up a new avenue for me with my how-to blog posts.

If you have trouble loading it, you can view it directly from YouTube, here.

Disclosure:  I was selected to participate in the Flip-Pal Simple Gifts Blog Hop and by doing so I received a Flip-Pal™ Mobile Scanner to evaluate.

Outstanding presentation! I am happy to see a video of the process and see how simple it is. I still have to download the software (I have a Mac) and haven't copied any large photos, yet, but I can see from your presentation that it won't be a traumatic experience.

Glad I could help, Greta! I had seen a few videos (like an infomercial) on it, but with the editing process, you just see the before and after, not a real-time instance of if happening before your eyes. Because of that, I was skeptical, but I'm certainly a believe now. The whole process, including the scanning, took no more than 10 minutes...that also impresses me!

Great job on the presentation, Julie, and I had no problem loading it from your blog. Looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with for examples of research applications.

You did a great job, Julie! Thanks for showing this; I've been wondering how the stitching process worked.

Nice job, Julie. I've been playing with my Flip-Pal and, like you, am very impressed.
I also love the piece. What a nice present for a daughter's wedding!
