Antarctica in HD, bug photos, & more
- Antarctica in HD: NASA’s LIMA, the Landsat Image Mosaic of Antarctica, was pieced together from from more than 1,000 Landsat image captures. CNET hosts an interesting gallery that show the progression of satellite images covering the frozen continent. This shot of glacial flow is particularly, er, cool.
- Astrophotographer Scott Ireland is profiled on Adobe.com, talking about how Photoshop CS3 aids in his documentaries of everything from galaxies to volcanoes. Many more samples of his work appear on his site.
- On a similar note, amateur astrophotographer Ian Megson uses Photoshop in his work. Check out a recent capture.
- Diane Varner has taken a great portrait of a little mantis (?) dude. (Dig her bees, ladybug, and locust, too.)
- Speaking of insects, check out these paintings done by bugs. (Does PETA have jurisdiction here?) [Via]
- Via Scott Kelby I just found Forensic Photoshop, the blog of Jim Hoerricks–Senior Forensic Video Analyst for the LAPD & Photoshop instructor. I haven’t had time to peruse much yet, but topics like measuring images using PSCS3 Extended look interesting.
- According to National Geographic, paleontologists recently discovered a mummified dinosaur. They’re using digital imaging to scan the results, producing images like this CT scan. [Via]
