An opinion based on observation:

I have done a lot of looking at the exchanged views lately as I have scanned them in for the web pages. I have noticed one thing... In my humble opinion, there is no substitute for a bit of space between the pairs to help create the illusion of a window on a stereo card. I had never done this myself before, but have recently tried it on a few images, and they DO look better! Try it!!!

Another observation - the rounding of the corners also seems to enhance the window effect. That, combined with the space between the pairs, really adds a lot to the viewing experience that can be had when viewing classic style stereo views. My next exchanged views will have both! =)

A new tool:

To facilitate the corner rounding I needed a new tool. Last Friday, I found the following pair of scissors at a local art supply house.

They are made by FISKARS Inc., 7811 West Stewart Ave, Wausau, WI 54401. They cost me about $9 and do a fabulous job at creating very nice rounded corners. Here is a close-up of what the blade looks like:

And, here are the instructions on the back to help you visualize how it all works:

Here is a sample of the cut that I made on a few of the left over squares I had cut for the last exchange:

Each cut only takes a few seconds, and I am thrilled. thought that maybe some of you might like to try it... =)

New subject - View Storage:

I remember reading somewhere on an e-mail that Light Impressions offered a free catalog, and that they had a stereo view storage kit. I called them and ordered one. Sure enough, they have a very reasonable kit for sale:

I will be ordering two boxes and using the dividers to seperate views by each of you. I will keep them in exchange order, but divided by photographer. All except the View-Magic views - Maybe they can be laid on top of the others??

Anyway, the really good news is that I received a postcard from Light Impressions last week telling me that they wanted my first impression of them to be a good one, so they would offer me free shipping on my first order!

The details: If you call 1-800-828-6216 (or fax 1-800-828-5539) and give them code "C2225" you get the free shipping. For my order of two kits, this will save me $5.95... Thought some of you might like to know this as well. =)

Enjoy, Dan Shelley
