Historypin: Old photos overlaid on the modern world
What a totally cool project:
Historypin uses Google Maps and Street View technology and hopes to become the largest user-generated archive of the world’s historical images and stories.
Historypin asks the public to dig out, upload and pin their own old photos, as well as the stories behind them, onto the Historypin map. Uniquely, Historypin lets you layer old images onto modern Street View scenes, giving a series of peeks into the past.
Great new Lightroom tutorials from George Jardine
Long-time readers of this blog may fondly remember George Jardine and the extensive series of Lightroom podcasts he produced a couple of years back. Now George has returned with an intensively workflow-oriented set of video tutorials:
This set of 15 all-new video tutorials gives you over 4-1/2 hours of the very best online education available. It covers the Adobe Lightroom Library and your digital photo library management from top to bottom. We start from the ground up, and guide any serious photographer—professional or passionate amateur—through the process of building an easy-to-use, but incredibly effective digital photo library. Then we dive deeper, tutorial-by-tutorial, through nearly every Lightroom Library feature, gently leading you to a solid and complete understanding of the entire professional workflow.
