Mac OS Photography
A basic photo application which allows for zooming, panning, and framing of both image preview and capture. Image is cropped to the framed area when saved. Zooming is not limited to the center of the camera preview, especially useful when the camera is mounted on a tripod. Automatically detects all compatible attached cameras, even when added or removed during a session. User can select any device supported configuration involving compression, resolution, and frame rate range.
Use the [Control] in combination with the mouse left click to initiate a drag operation to frame the image free-hand. Alternatively, select one of the standard frame sizes from the dropdown. The frame is optionally adjustable when displayed. Click the crop/erase button to add or remove the frame at any time. Use the best-fit button to reset the image whether framed or not. Finally, there are options which allow or disallow the panning, zooming, framing, and adjusting of the image and frame.
Future version to provide rotation of both camera preview and captured image in the four primary orientations; 0, 90, 180, and 270.
Application now allows for the rotation of the preview/image. This accommodates the placement or mounting of cameras on their edge or upside-down but still have the screen image right-side up. Additionally, more effort has been put into saving the state of the camera connection, or lack there of, at the moment the application is closed. This means at startup your settings and frame are restored automatically.
