Re: iPad pictures

I have a question to ask. If folk post a pic do they actually preview their post? If so - does this preview always reflect the way others see the pic? I preview, but this isn't an issue that affects my posts. My camera doesn't set the orientation flag and my posted images have always been processed...

Re: iPad pictures

I have read that cameras always store images with the "top" being at the "top" of the camera, hence always portrait, then set the orientation tag appropriately. That would make it landscape! From my reading of the jpeg standard pixel order in the file is always top down, left to right plus an orien...

Re: iPad pictures

I have read that cameras always store images with the "top" being at the "top" of the camera, hence always portrait, then set the orientation tag appropriately. This is what Apple devices do. However, my experience has been that cameras store the image "as-taken" with an orientation tag of 1. It isn...

Re: iPad pictures

Apple always stores images in landscape mode, regardless if how they're taken. It then stores EXIF orientation data so it knows which way they should be displayed. This behaviour is not very common and most other cameras store images in the orientation they are taken in, so it will display the right...

Re: Sickly Lithops

Lithops do love the sun. Come September and October they'll be all too ready to stretch without adding more shading. Easy to say if you're not the one that has to put it up and take it down ;)

Re: Sickly Lithops

Yes seems odd given the extreme temperatures but I guess they stop growing in the high 40's so then water becomes unnecessary and a danger? I will infuture become very conservative with the waterings. Should I be treating my 8 month old Lithops seedlings same as the adults and restricting their wat...

Re: Sickly Lithops

The L. olivacea head looks like it may have been scorched. The other is too far gone to diagnose. Might be overwatering, or could also have been scorched. I damaged several Lithops this year, and not on a particularly hot sunny day, just not enough ventilation inside the greenhouse on a mostly cloud...

Re: How not to do it

The plant next door got it all right, but then it doesn't have any pesky hooks on its spines.

Lithops verruculosa

Lithops verruculosa, a fairly typical form verruculosa-0805.jpg These seedlings are supposed to be the cultivar 'Rose of Texas'. Only time will tell, but they don't have quite the right look top me. Rather they suggest var. glabra, pale, a shortage of red pimples, none at all on one plant, and not r...
