Time Slice 1.0 is a desktop program that helps you quickly and easily create Time Slice images. Time Slice 1.0 can be used to select a batch of jpg photos and and then automatically slice them into one image. This works best when used on a batch of time lapse photos that show a transition from day to night or night to day. Watch a Tutorial.

Time Slice User Guide
Time slicing works best when you shoot a time-lapse that spans the transition from daylight to night and you have a subject in your scene that remains static while the sky changes.
After download, unzip the folder and drag the application for your operating system into your program or applications folder. Double click the application to run it.
The first screen allows you to choose how many images to skip in your batch of images. This is useful if you don’t want to use every photo in your time-lapse batch. Skipping images will make for a larger change between each slice. For example, choosing “Use 1 in every 2” frames will skip every other frame. Leaving the default will use very frame in the final slice.
Next, import your batch of images by clicking the “select images” button. Once your batch of images has finished importing, it’s time to decide on a few more settings:
Linear – This slicing option allows you to input an angle in degrees in which the program will slice your images. 90 will make a vertical time slice while 0 will make a horizontal time slice.
Radial – This slicing option slices the images in a radial fan shape or star burst radiating out from the origin point you set.
Reverse Image Order – Time Slice will order the images in the slice sequentially by default. You can reverse the order with this option.
Drop Shadow – This option adds a drop shadow to the leading or trailing edge of each slice.
Drop Shadow Alpha – This option allows you to adjust the opacity of the drop shadow. Lower values are more transparent and higher values are less transparent.
Once you have configured your settings, process the Time Slice. Processing time will depend on the size of the source images you are using and the number of source images. Once complete, the program will show you a low resolution preview image. Click the save button and choose a location to save the high resolution final image. Open your image in photoshop or another image editing/viewing program to view.
