tineye – image search engine

TinEye is a reverse image search engine. It finds out where an image came from, how it is being used, if modified versions of the image exist, or if there is a higher resolution version.

The market is flooded with diverse voices, artwork, and stories, with creators having more power and prestige than ever before. New readers are rolling into comic shops every day thanks to TV and movie adaptations, comic tie-ins, and good old word of mouth.

How 3-D Glasses Work


In a movie theater, the reason why you wear 3-D glasses is to feed different images into your eyesjust like a View-Master does. The screen actually displays two images, and the glasses cause one of the images to enter one eye and the other to enter the other eye. There are two common systems for doing this:

Red/Green or Red/Blue
Although the red/green or red/blue system is now mainly used for television 3-D effects, and was used in many older 3-D movies. In this system, two images are displayed on the screen, one in red and the other in blue (or green). The filters on the glasses allow only one image to enter each eye, and your brain does the rest. You cannot really have a color movie when you are using color to provide the separation, so the image quality is not nearly as good as with the polarized system.


The red and blue lenses filter the two projected images allowing only one image to enter each eye.

Polarization
At Disney WorldUniversal Studios and other 3-D venues, the preferred method uses polarized lensesbecause they allow color viewing. Two synchronized projectors project two respective views onto the screen, each with a different polarization. The glasses allow only one of the images into each eye because they contain lenses with different polarization.


The polarized glasses allow only one of the images into each eye because each lens has a different polarization.

There are some more complicated systems as well, but because they are expensive they are not as widely used. For example, in one system, a TV screen displays the two images alternating one right after the other. Special LCD glasses block the view of one eye and then the other in rapid succession. This system allows color viewing on a normal TV, but requires you to buy special equipment.
