Ok I see


this picture and all and i don't remember that hurricane which led me to beleive it was computer generated as a prank or something.

Regardless of whether it is real or not is it possible to computer generate an image like this using a program like photoshop? i could have a little fun :D *evil horns*

Whoah, nice. How do you do that?

We could turn this into a fullblown HowTo eventually :D

It looks like Jeanne or Francis from last year. That is a satellite IR image - probably taken at night.

This is the latest IR image from Dennis:


And visible:

This was done with Paint Shop Pro 7 and Animation Shop. I just copied the hurricane and pasted it into new layers of the background image and rotating at 10 degrees in esch frame.

Looks like a funny comic but not as real, i'm sure photoshop has a blending option to make it fit better into the background image, I've done something like that blending before but not with a rotating hurricane image. If i could figure out how to get the rotating hurricane image in (or create a hurricane and make it rotate w/ distortion) and then attach it to the map it would look really neat.

Anyone seen "The Day After Tomorrow" thats kinda what I want.
