Hi All

As you can see there are some images on coming from Satara and Orpen webcams since earlier today :dance: BUT the images are not looking what is should look like (yet)! :sori:

Because of the higher resolution and the new aspect ratio of 16:9 of the image coming from the new webcams, the website is interpreting the images incorrectly and you only see the top left corner of the digital image (zoomed in a lot) of both Sarara and Orpen. This leads to poor picture quality and the fact that the largest portion of the image is not seen (yet) by you via the web. :oops:

Below are the wide angle views of Orpen and Satara as it should look! :D #patience as the team is working on fixing the web settings to look like the images below too! Have a look at the zoom info text in the top left corners of the two images below and compare that to what you can see currently via the web (you will notice it is heavily cropped and zoomed in with incorrect aspect ratio). :redface: BUT it will be fixed! #patience

I got these images directly off the webcams at Satara and Orpen a few minutes earlier:
Orpen:

A bit more patience please! : :pray:
