Everyone's favorite photo-sharing web application, Flickr , has had tons of ancillary applications and user scripts developed for it to tweak, mod and add to its functionality. Dozens of Greasemonkey user scripts have popped up that make Flickr better; so in the spirit of Better Gmail I've rolled a few of my favorites into a new Firefox extension called Better Flickr. After the jump, check out Better Flickr's features and grab the download.
Editor: When photographer and reader Scott D. Feldstein offered to write a tutorial on how to put your digital SLR camera to good use this holiday season, we couldn't pass it up. Our new Canon's dial never budged from Auto mode—until now.
OK, so this may be a bit overkill, but I wanted to share with you some of my photography feeds that I try to keep up with. I’m subscribed to a little over 200 feeds, and just over half of those are about photography. Below are 87 of the photography blogs I follow, though some more closely than others. So if you’re looking for more reading material, I’m sure you can find one or two in this list that suit your needs.
**Update: Check out the LICHFAKTOR interview we did for more photos and a new video. A number of graffiti artists have been tagging everything thought to be impossible without being caught. Well -- it's actually not illegal for them. They're not using paint.
One of the nice things about Flickr is that because of their open API a whole host of developers have built more and more interesting things to do with the site. It’s interesting to me today that so many of the ways that I use Flickr are not even through the site as designed by Yahoo, but instead through the work of outside developers who are constantly creating new and interesting ways to experience the site. Today I thought I’d share what I think are the top 10 Hacks on Flickr. This list is by no way exhaustive or complete, but as somewhat of a power user who uses the site every day I thought I’d offer some tools that you might want to try out. One note is that many of the best hacks on Flickr today are being done through Greasemonkey scripts.
Sweet sassy-mollassy, I've been Dugg! Hi, Adobe! Note: clicking any image below makes it larger in a new window. If you visit here regularly, you've probably noticed that I post a lot of High Dynamic Range, or HDR, stuff these days.

September 8–January 21, 2006 Bound for Glory: America in Color is the first major exhibition of the little known color images taken by photographers of the Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information (FSA/OWI). Comprised of seventy digital prints made from color transparencies taken between 1939 and 1943, this exhibition reveals a surprisingly vibrant world that has typically been viewed only through black-and-white images. These vivid scenes and portraits capture the effects of the Depression on America's rural and small town populations, the nation's subsequent economic recovery and industrial growth, and the country's great mobilization for World War II. The photographs in Bound for Glory, many by famed photographers such as John Vachon, Jack Delano, Russell Lee, and Marion Post Wolcott, document not only the subjects in the pictures, but also the dawn of a new era -- the Kodachrome era.
