Default Pixel Density Setting for Saving Files in JPEG Format

Chart wheels and other graphic reports can be displayed in JPEG format with a default pixel density. The following discussion is a bit technical and you may skip this information as it is not likely to be important for most users: Pixel density is a concept used by Adobe Photoshop and a few other programs to determine how large the image is. Not all software programs use this concept, and it is a feature available for images in JPEG format but not other formats supported by Sirius. Pixel density is often confused with the resolution of the image but it is not the resolution. Suppose you have an image that is 300 x 300 pixels. This is the resolution of the image, i.e. 300 x 300. This image can be displayed as a 1" x 1" image at a pixel density of 300 dpi, as a 2" x 2" image at 150 dpi, and as a 3" x 3" image at 100 dpi. The dpi (dots per inch) is the pixel density, which determines the physical size of an image given a particular resolution (in number of pixels in width and height). If you save a high resolution image in Sirius (for example, over 1,000 pixels in width and height) and you view the image in Photoshop at 72 dpi, the image is enormous, being well over 10 inches in height and width. To make the image smaller, you view it with a higher dpi. The higher DPI does NOT increase the resolution of the image; it makes the image smaller so that it appears as a higher resolution image (although its actual resolution has not changed) because it is displayed in a smaller, more compact area. Files in JPEG format can be saved with a default pixel density. For example, if you select 300 pixel density in Sirius, and save an image that is 1200 x 1500 pixels in resolution, it will appear by default in Adobe Photoshop as a 4" x 5" image. The size can be changed in Adobe Photoshop by changing the pixel density, but this is the default setting.

AUTOMATIC RECTIFICATION: Rectification in astrology is the process of checking various events in a person's life against their chart to determine the accurate time of birth if the birth time is not known. Important events with specific date are used to rectify a chart. If you already know your birth time (usually listed on a birth certificate) you do not have to use this feature.

The Rectification feature of Sirius is fully automated. It analyzes all astrological influences related to life changing events in a person's life and then produces a graph of the likelihood that the person was born at various times. What could take an astrologer days or even weeks to calculate can be assembled in minutes and graphed in a clear and concise manner!

ASTROCLOCK: An AstroClock is an animated real time viewing of the astrology chart as it changes in time. Using this feature allows you to view the current position of the planets in real time. You can select the location that you want the AstroClock calculated for.

Save as New Chart Entry: While viewing the AstroClock, you want to save the current chart displayed on this screen, you can do so. Sirius has a "Save as New Chart Entry" button that provides the very useful feature of saving the current chart as an entry so that you can easily select for this chart other kinds of calculations and reports, such as BiWheels, midpoints, etc. When you select this button, the "Add This Chart to Current Entries" window is displayed. You can enter the name that you want to use then click on "OK".

The AstroClock Feature in Sirius is extremely flexible. You can Stop ore re-start the clock at any time. Change the date to any date that you want to use. Adjust the time used backward (earlier) or forward (later) with a click of a button either for seconds, minutes, hours, days, months, or years. If you want to reset the time the current time, simply click on the Reset to Current Time button. Sirius will autotically reset the time that your computer is set to. You can also find the time of specific aspects or position in real time. If you want to change the place used in the AstroClock, you can do so quite easily. You can even customize the chart wheel that you are using if you chosed to do so. If you want to print the chart in real time, simply click on the Print button.

ASTROMAP DETAILS: With the traditional AstroMap, you cannot see exactly how far away from the line the influence extends. The AstroMap style with blue-shaded orbs solves this problem by displaying a blue-shaded area around each aspect line that shows how far each aspect line extends. These blue-shaded areas clearly indicate how far the astrological influence extends.

The Treasure Map is a very useful and exciting alternative to the other 2 AstroMap styles. There are 10 different Treasure Map styles: Love and Romance, Vocation and Career, Friendship and Family, Imagination and Inspiration, Excitement and Instability, Friendship and Family Detailed Map, Education and Communication, Culture and Creativity, Optimism and Opportunity, and the Responsibility and Focus Treasure Map. Each of these maps shows all of the astrological influences that are relevant to that area of life.

All AstroMaps are Interactive: There are small icons displayed on the left of the AstroMap to move, zoom, scroll, etc. making the maping feature in Sirius extremely flexible.

BATCH MODE AND INTERACTIVE MODE: Sirius works beautifully in both "batch" mode and "interactive" mode. You may not be familiar with the terms "batch mode" and "interactive mode" but both modes are important to make an astrology program easy and fun. You can easily check the printouts you want and send them to the printer (batch mode), or you can view printouts on the screen, select any printout desired and immediately see it and then click on the Print button to print it if you like (Interactive mode). Batch mode is great when you need a lot of printouts, and interactive mode is great when you want to "play" with the program, poking around and exploring different ideas. Kepler provides both in a very easy-to-use way.

CHART WHEELS: Sirius comes with different chart wheel styles such as;

* Regular: Select this option to create a single natal chart wheel

* TriWheel: Select this option to create a TriWheel of any three charts entry
QuadWheel: Select this option to create a QuadWheel of any 4 charts entry.

Three-Wheels: This option is used to create any three separate charts on the screen or printed.
Four-Wheels: If you want to see four separate charts on the screen or printed, select this option.
BiWheel Animation & Adjust: Natal-Transit: Having an animated wheel is very handy specially when you are watching the sky. Select this option to create an animated BiWheel. You must have two charts entered in order to run this option.
BiWheel & 2-Wheel Animation & Adjust: Natal-Progressed: Select this option to create an animated BiWheel and able to adjust it while viewing it on the screen.
TriWheel & 3-Wheel Anim/Adjus (Natal-Prog-Tran): Select this option to create a TriWheel animation.
QuadWheel & 4-Wheel Anim/Adj (Natal-Prog/SolRet-Tran): Select this option to create a QuadWheel animation.
Popup Wheel: While viewing a time line on the screen, you might want to view a popup wheel to see the planetary positions in the chart. This option is very handy if you want to see the chart.
Patterns: Select this option to view chart patterns involving major aspects, semisextiles, quincunxes, semisquares, sesquiquadrates etc.
Compatibility Patterns: Select this option to view comparison of two charts patterns. Compatibility Patterns are divided into different selections of symmetrical 3-planet patterns, assymetrical 3-planet patterns, 4-planet patterns with 2 planets from each chart, 4-planet patterns that have 3 planets from 1 chart and 3 planets from the other chart, and then two groups of planetary pictures, those that are formed from 2 planets in each other and those that are formed from 3 planets in 1 chart and 1 planet in the other chart.
Portrait/Landscape: Select this option to change the chart orientation viewed on the screen or printed.
* Art Wheels: Art wheels are beautiful chart wheels. Our art wheels were designed by graphic artist Paul Guess. The planetary positions are placed within these exquisitely beautiful chart wheel images. These chart wheels are perfect for framing. These chart wheels are best printed on a color printer. For an incredibly stunning chart wheel, print an art wheel on glossy paper with your color printer.

There are 30 art wheels to choose from, and there is a portrait (normal) and landscape (sideways) version of each art wheel.

In order to make the art wheels as beautiful as possible, we added the ability to add shadowing to the planetary information in the chart wheel. This adds extra pizzazz to the art wheel.

Flexible Chart Wheels: Wheel and other items in printout can be resized, moved, given different colors, change fonts and size, etc.
