Whether you’re gasping at the beauty of Earth or the wonder of modern-day architecture (or both), there may well be times when you need to quickly download all of the pictures on a particular page—even if you just want some new phone backgrounds to use. One such tool for the job is the I’m A Gentleman extension for…
While it’s easy to forget just how many things are actually in the public domain, the New York Public Library is very much into making sure that its collection is as available as possible. Which is why over 187,000 public domain images were put online today.
Google’s started experimenting with saving pictures from your image searches in Chrome or Safari on mobile devices. The new feature lets you keep a cache of bookmarked images available on your smartphone or tablet, and while it hasn’t yet been officially announced, you can try it out now.
Google Photos is getting a feature that enables you to hide a specific individual from under the People tab—which means you can suppress those images of your ex that you’d rather not have to look at.
We all like to think we can spot a real from a fake. But a new study by researchers from the the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul suggests that, actually, we’re pretty awful at telling a real digital photo from a fake.
If you use Facebook, you’ve probably uploaded a picture at some point. While Facebook is great for sharing, it also uses some pretty ruthless compression (compared to other sites, anyway) that makes your pictures look like crap. Here’s how to prevent that from happening.
You kids and your #nofilter tags. Everything’s filtered! The engineer who built your camera made dozens of decisions about color, lighting, and contrast processing. So for this week’s Shooting Challenge, let’s celebrate the filter. Nay, let’s full-out ROAST the filter.
Using solarization, you can create a world of opposites, where darks are light, and lights are dark. For this week’s Shooting Challenge, give us a peek into that other world.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, or more commonly, it’s shaped and defined by cultural standards that are different around the world. To try and understand how the perfect body is viewed across the world, designers from 18 countries were asked to Photoshop the same model.
Life was basically impossible without Photoshop. The process and tools it took to get images and type set just the way you wanted took an eternity. There were no shortcuts! You needed a rapidograph pens, T-squares, rubber cement, exacto knifes and so much more just to do things Photoshop now does in one or two clicks.
In photographs taken in the spectrum of visible light, the Sun’s magnetic field is invisible. But this image wasn’t taken in our familiar, visible wavelengths, which is why the Sun’s magnetic field is both apparent and beautiful.
Where do planes go when they die? If they’re part of military history, they head to the 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group in Tucson, Arizona. It’s a storage and repair site for military aircraft, but it’s also a final resting place where you can find dilapidated Polish fighter jets and broken missile…

I have owned four Wi-Fi routers in my life. Without exception, they have all been blocky, joyless objects that brought nothing but pain and frustration into my life (and, y’know, wireless internet). If the access points had been hidden inside the USS Enterprise, however, things would have been oh so different.

Never before in human history has it been so easy to share, like, pin, reblog, images. That's, like, totally awesome for teenage girls showing off their prom dresses but also a pretty huge boon for scientists studying what makes images shareable. And it could be something as simple as color.
We take digital images for granted these days—hell, you're looking at dozens right now. But when you stop and think about how the 3D world can be represented so neatly by 1D data stored on a hard drive, it's really utterly amazing.
Brazilian editor Leandro Copperfield combined the most iconic and spectacular images from two of my favorite directors, Stanley Kubrick and Martin Scorsese, in one video. Hit play and get ready for an overdose of film excellence.
