F.Y.I. - The removal process is over. The page stays unless others still have a problem with it. Thanks for all the feedback from everyone! John Spikowski 03:47, 19 May 2007 (UTC)

For the records[edit]

This is copied from the AfD discussion:

I just scroll through the last edits of the article and see that the last edits by John Spikowski introduce several big errors: Revision as of 22:26, 18 May 2007 The software now seems to "support a number of standard and wide angle lenses" which is completely wrong since not only input images from a list of supported lenses from standard to wide angle focal lengths are supported. All panorama tools based stitching applications instead accept every sort of input image, even mixed types in one project, no matter if any kind of fisheye lens, wide angle lenses, images from panoramic cameras (cylindrical projection), readily stitched panoramas (e.g. equirectangular for full spheres), just everything you want to stitch or correct inside PTgui. Why is John Spikowski downgrading the value of the article instead of improving it? The broad range of possible input images (also file types like 8 bit JPG, 16 bit TIFF etc.) is one of the strengths of PTgui. Thanks to Johns new wording (introducing several "you do this/that" phrases) the article looks more and more like an advertisement brochure. - Next edit from same contributor: PTgui's output now changes from "final image output generation" to a "project" which is complete nonsense. In a summary: with this AfD nominator who is pushing the article itself to it's very limits we just can save every debate. AfD nominator is completely biased in favour of deletion, q.e.d. -- Einemnet 09:34, 19 May 2007 (UTC)
Carl, the Wikipedia doesn't restrict you to the TALK and Discussion pages and allows your to edit the main article. (unless protected which this article isn't) My effort was to give an overview of the software. The text that was there looked like a couple paragraphs from the PTgui documention that was never finished. As the saying goes here. Be Bold and add some of your knowledge to the article.

Thanks Thomas for the cleanup effort. Looks much better. John Spikowski 19:39, 19 May 2007 (UTC)


I thought the software was called "PTgui" (small g) but I just checked my copy and it uses a capital G. In fact, the name is stylized as "PTGui", so should we also use italics here? nagualdesign 03:45, 24 February 2016 (UTC)

The name is not italicized on the their website, so I would say no.- MrX 03:49, 24 February 2016 (UTC)
Fair dinkum. Cheers. (Odd that the website doesn't feature the PTGui logo at all!) nagualdesign 04:45, 24 February 2016 (UTC)
