"Before and After" - possibilities for you ?
« on: Friday 08 May 15 07:26 BST (UK) »
Just a thought ....

In the German online edition of the Stern they are commemorating VE Day by showing "before and after" photos of Berlin, using a slider technique. Just press your mouse cursor down on the slider and move it right or left.
http://www.stern.de/panorama/berlin-am-ende-des-2-weltkriegs-und-heute-fotos-im-schieberegler-der-geschichte-2192392.html

I don't know how it's done, but would that be a possibility for some of your restorations ?

Like I said, just a thought ...

Cheers,
Bob

Hi Bob,

I have done some "before and after photographs" of our local town, the important bit is finding the original place where the photographs had originally been taken.  To do the best job it helps to try and take a photograph with the same type of lens originally used as different camera lens' give different looking views of the same subject :)

Regards

Sarah

Bob it sounds interesting but the photos won't load for me ???

I would like to know how to do the before and after photos using the slider :)

Perhaps it requires special software :-\

I have seen this type of thing before and find them fascinating. These are excellent - others I've seen do not align as well ss these. Sarah's comment makes sense.

Bob, a little off topic but thought you may be interested in this if you haven't already seen it:

There is a now a new series in the Berliner Morgenpost using this technique

(what a difference a coat of paint makes !!  ;D)

And this time, on the bottom right of the photos there is a reference "juxtaposeJS"

An internet search finds this link:
https://juxtapose.knightlab.com/

and - for programmers - other links with more details.
e.ge.
http://www.cssscript.com/compare-two-overlapping-images-using-juxtapose-js/
https://www.npmjs.com/package/juxtapose

Not seen this before, film has survived very well. Note the women tidying up. Hardly any young men, all in POW camps or marching to Siberian Gulags. The policeman is wearing Nazi period uniform but without eagle and swastika badge (hoheitsabzeichen).

For history buffs, another series: Before and after the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989

http://www.tagesspiegel.de/themen/berlinergeschichte/kreuzberg-und-neukoelln-hier-verlief-die-mauer-durch-berlin/20921224.html
and
https://interaktiv.morgenpost.de/berliner-mauer-damals-heute/

I had another look at this link: https://www.cssscript.com

and found a colour restoration example
https://www.cssscript.com/demo/minimal-image-comparison-slider-pure-js/
and the downlaod page, https://www.cssscript.com/minimal-image-comparison-slider-pure-js/

BUT it seems you have to have a web site to use it. It would be great if there were a stand-alone non-website computer program for doing this. Then instead of the "dia-shows" from way-back-when, for friends and relatives, we could now plug the computer into the television and have 'before and after' shows :)

regards,
Bob
