A World Transfixed by Screens - The Atlantic
Excellent "In Focus" this week -- 'The continued massive growth of connected mobile devices is shaping not only how we communicate with each other, but how we look, behave, and experience the world around us. Smartphones and other handheld devices have become indispensable tools, appendages held at arm's length to record a scene or to snap a selfie. Recent news photos show refugees fleeing war-torn regions holding up their phones as prized possessions to be saved, and relatives of victims lost to a disaster holding up their smartphones to show images of their loved ones to the press. Celebrity selfies, people alone in a crowd with their phones, events obscured by the very devices used to record that event, the brightly lit faces of those bent over their small screens, these are some of the scenes depicted below.'

The Getty Museum offers a huge chunk of their collection for free use
We’ve launched the Open Content Program to share, freely and without restriction, as many of the Getty’s digital resources as possible. The initial focus of the Open Content Program is to make available all images of public domain artworks in the Getty’s collections. Today we’ve taken a first step toward this goal by making roughly 4,600 high-resolution images of the Museum’s collection free to use, modify, and publish for any purpose.

Why open content? Why now? The Getty was founded on the conviction that understanding art makes the world a better place, and sharing our digital resources is the natural extension of that belief. This move is also an educational imperative. Artists, students, teachers, writers, and countless others rely on artwork images to learn, tell stories, exchange ideas, and feed their own creativity. In its discussion of open content, the most recent Horizon Report, Museum Edition stated that “it is now the mark—and social responsibility—of world-class institutions to develop and share free cultural and educational resources.” I agree wholeheartedly.

Fred's ImageMagick Scripts: SIMILAR
compute an image-similarity metric, to discover mostly-identical-but-slightly-tweaked images:
SIMILAR computes the normalized cross correlation similarity metric between two equal dimensioned images. The normalized cross correlation metric measures how similar two images are, not how different they are. The range of ncc metric values is between 0 (dissimilar) and 1 (similar). If mode=g, then the two images will be converted to grayscale. If mode=rgb, then the two images first will be converted to colorspace=rgb. Next, the ncc similarity metric will be computed for each channel. Finally, they will be combined into an rms value.

I left my shutter open for 30 seconds in the wilderness at 10.30pm, under a full moon
Amazing shot. With a sufficiently long exposure, it looks like midday -- no colour correction applied. (via fp)

Photo Tampering throughout History
dating back to 1860: 'This nearly iconic portrait (in the form of a lithograph) of U.S. President Abraham Lincoln is a composite of Lincoln’s head and the Southern politician John Calhoun’s body.' I had no idea of many of these
