Can anyone recommend good Blink Comparator software capable of handling relatively high resolution images (=> 2400x1600) in JPG, BMP or TIFF formats.

The software would have to be compatible with 32 bit XP.

Thanks,

Rudy

There are replies about blinking in this thread at iceinspace.com:

See the last reply. IMO, I don't think it would be a hassle to use Paint to convert to gif format and use the free Microsoft GIF Animator. Download only from a trusted download site.

 

I have PixInsight which has a superb blink function. Ain't free and likely way more than what you want.

 

I also have the freeware iris which can blink two or three FITS images. (I have never played with the animation function.)

P.S. For blinking purposes only, you can convert your images to FITS images in iris. However, you can't zoom out/in when using the blink function. You can only use the scroll bars.

Have a look at PinPoint with Visual PinPoint. The latter is a fast/easy bulk solver comparator that willl handle images depending on the amount of VRAM in your video board (it is fast, so it uses the VRAM).

It's a bit of a deal these days due to the soft Euro.
