In the Future, We Will Photograph Everything and Look at Nothing

This was something I thought about when I recently read that Google was making its one-hundred-and-forty-nine-dollar photo-editing suite, the Google Nik Collection, free. This photo-editing software is as beloved among photographers as, say, Katz’s Deli is among those who dream of pastrami sandwiches. Before Google bought it, in 2012, the collection cost five hundred dollars.

It is made up of seven pieces of specialized software that, when used in combination with other photo-editing software, such as Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Lightroom, give photographers a level of control akin to that once found in the darkroom. They can mimic old film stock, add analog photo effects, or turn color shots into black-and-white photos. My guess is that it wants to kill the software, but it doesn’t want the P.R. nightmare that would follow.

9 Places to Find Creative Commons & Public Domain Images. When students create multimedia projects they might be tempted to simply do a Google Images search and use the first images they see.

9 Places to Find Creative Commons & Public Domain Images

But as educators we have a responsibility to teach students to respect copyright holders' rights. One of the ways that we can do that is to teach students to use Creative Commons and Public Domain images. Morgue File provides free photos with license to remix. The Morgue File photo collection contains thousands of images that anyone can use for free in academic or commercial presentations. The image collection can be searched by subject category, image size, color, or rating. Wylio is an image search engine designed to help bloggers and others quickly find, cite, and use Creative Commons licensed images. William Vann's EduPic Graphical Resource provides free photographs and drawings for teachers and students to use in their classrooms. ImageBase is a personal project of professional photographer David Niblack. The British Library Puts 1,000,000 Images into the Public Domain, Making Them Free to Reuse & Remix.

Earlier this week, Oxford’s Bodleian Library announced that it had digitized a 550 year old copy of the Gutenberg Bible along with a number of other ancient bibles, some of them quite beautiful.

The British Library Puts 1,000,000 Images into the Public Domain, Making Them Free to Reuse & Remix

Not to be outdone, the British Library came out with its own announcement on Thursday: We have released over a million images onto Flickr Commons for anyone to use, remix and repurpose. These images were taken from the pages of 17th, 18th and 19th century books digitised by Microsoft who then generously gifted the scanned images to us, allowing us to release them back into the Public Domain. The images themselves cover a startling mix of subjects: There are maps, geological diagrams, beautiful illustrations, comical satire, illuminated and decorative letters, colourful illustrations, landscapes, wall-paintings and so much more that even we are not aware of. The librarians behind the project freely admit that they don’t exactly have a great handle on the images in the collection. Welcome · Digital Public Library of America.
