A volcano spewing ash, magical forest fireflies, and a monkey who feels just like we all do about winter weather. These are just a few of the remarkable photos from the Smithsonian’s annual photo contest.
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 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.
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!

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).

Most of the gorgeous images of distant galaxies we all keep in our minds were captured by the lens of The Hubble Space Telescope. But those lens can only take black and white images.
