Great Success: The First Forward Stumble

After stumbling my way though the Bash shell, and combing forums for solutions to my computer troubles, I have gotten openCV to work! What have I done exactly? I typed four lines of code, opened a picture, converted it to B+W, and finally saved it. So in the better part of a week I did what I could do in seconds with adobe. It is a small slow step step that many have taken before, but it is a start. My idea of taking images from a digital camera, use them to create a simple 3D capture of the original scene, and then use the extra information in novel ways to manipulate and create images. This is not even the proof of concept stage, just proof the tools I need to get me there work. More to come...
