An interesting mosaic with great colours. Heinke writes: "I've been trying to extract the colour information from the VMC images. Any comments welcome."
"I've been trying to extract the colour information from the VMC images. Not knowing much about it I took the following approach. I drew from scratch, a Bayer pattern on a 640x480 pixel bitmap, making one pixel blue and then one pixel green, etc. I opened the RAW VMC pictures in Adobe Photoshop, then created a 'new layer', then copied my Bayer picture on top. The pictures was then reduced by 50% to get rid of the pattern grid (that looks even more pronounced after the second picture is placed on it). Is this a valid way of extracting the colour? I'm not sure, it's just my idea. Any comments welcome."
