Macro Photography II – 70 Beautiful Photos of Insects

Macro Photography II – 70 Beautiful Photos of Insects

Insect photography is challenging under the best circumstances. Think about it: you’re taking photos of something that is likely smaller than your little finger (and at largest is still probably smaller than your hand), has no reason to cooperate, and likely views you as a predator or is oblivious to your presence entirely. And even if you’re taking photos of dead insects, it still takes a lot of skill (and a good macro lens) to get the right focus and lighting. The photographers...

Better Flickr 0.4.1 Now Available

Better Flickr 0.4.1 Now Available

It took over a month (!), but Mozilla Add-ons has finally approved a long-delayed update to the Better Flickr Firefox extension. You can see more about what changed here; my favorite addition to this version is the Flic.kr Short URL script, which displays a short, Twitter-friendly URL on all Flickr photos for easy tweeting.

Multi Image Downloader Grabs Pics in Bulk from Google [Downloads]

Multi Image Downloader Grabs Pics in Bulk from Google [Downloads]

Windows: Google Image Search is great at showing thumbnail results, but not so hot at making full-size originals easy to download. Free and portable app Multi Image Downloader is a two-step bulk downloader that’s really simple to use. Multi Image Downloader can’t do its own searching, but instead asks you to copy and paste the URL address from any Google Image Search. Given that Google now lets searchers pin down exact sizes and color tendencies, it makes some sense that this...

Digital Image Processing Software

Digital Image Processing Software

Digital Image Tool is a free digital image processing software that has been specifically designed to batch process images. The developers state that it is a portable software program although it is only supplied as an installer which is somewhat confusing.

Use a Vacuum to Clean Dust Particles Caught Inside a Camera Lens [Clever Uses]

Flickr Download

Flickr Download

Flickr Downloadr was reviewed back in March here at Ghacks. Back then we liked the simplicity of the tool but disliked the fact that it would only run on Windows Vista or Windows 7. The developers have been hard at work to increase application compatibility. The result is a new version of the Flickr downloader that supports the popular Windows XP operating system as well. The software program itself has not changed a lot though. The software developer has improved the algorithms in the...
