We're entering the home stretch on our Two Foto Animator project and I want to thank everyone for helping us reach our goal to make this happen. I've added a link to a user gallery on the Animator software home page. My hope is that you all will come up with great movies that you'll want to share. If you email me your pictures from the Animator software, I'll post them on the gallery page so everyone can download and print them.
The user gallery is on Flickr so it is easy to see and download the pictures. Click on the 'User Gallery' link on the Animator home page. Once you find a file you'd like, just click on the 'Actions' menu which is located above the photo to the right of 'Favorite'. Select 'View All Sizes' and then hit 'Download Image'. (I'm attaching a picture so you can see where the 'Action' menu is hiding out.)
I've already started laser cutting and assembling the Animators. There's still a ton of work to do including designing the user guide, but it's all coming together. I'm sure everyone's rewards will ship on schedule or maybe even a bit sooner.
Thank you all again and again!
