  1. Hello guys, what would you think if someone tell you that facebook is offering our work for free ? Sounds unbelievable ? How about to read this article below then ? Without sounds. https://www.facebook.com/business/a/carousel-stock-photo P.S. I makes me wonder what SS has offered to google after this.
  2. Hi, I'm very new to this and would appreciate honest criticisms and suggestions. I'm concerned about noise and everything else, really. Thank you in advance! Kim

  5. I just read a topic by new contributor asking about image processing and none of the answers mentioned free softwares. I think for a beginner who want to minimize the cost of entering the microstock business, free image editing softwares are great money saver. They are very capable as well. I only use free software for my image editing and so far, I did not think of getting commercial image software. Anyway, I cannot afford them, I would rather save the money for more lens or upgrade my camera body instead. However, I am not saying that those free software are better than the commercial one. I just wanted to say that they are capable of doing most image processing that photographers need. Those are lists of free software I am using now: RawTherapee (http://rawtherapee.com/): raw editor, does not correct for sensor dust, no spot healing or masking adjustment. It is available for Windows, Mac OSX and Linux Darktable (http://www.darktable.org/): is kind of the free copy of lightroom. I think almost everything you can do in lightroom can be done in darktable, including keywording, spot removal, red eye correction, layer mask adjustement, camera tethering ...! Unfortunately, this software is not available for windows user! Just grab a linux mint (http://www.linuxmint.com/download.php) copy for free if you want to test it (Linux mint is very easy to use for windows user moving to linux). Gimp (http://www.gimp.org/downloads/): the best free image editor out there! The latest stable version has only 8bit precision. The nighty build, however, supports 16bit tiff and can deal with 64 floating point support! You can download the Gimp nighty build for windows at http://nightly.darkrefraction.com/gimp/. If you are a linux user then you may have to compile it yourself though. Digikam (www.digikam.org): more into catalogue manager than image processing it self. However you can still do most of the things there. Unfortunately, just for Linux user (IMO). Please, leave a message if you want to know more or if you want to share your opinion. http://marolook.altervista.org/
  6. On January 6th, 2016, the New York Public Library, made over 187K digital items in the public domain available for high resolution download. http://publicdomain.nypl.org/pd-visualization/ Question is, will this just kill any old images that some sites have available for download, because it's just one more free site loaded with expired copyright images? Some people have worked very hard, spent time and money to scan works, edit and convert them (some made vectors from scans - I haven't) and make them available for download - licensed for a small fee on Microstock sites. I haven't looking into the search yet, but there are some stereoviews I'd like to have for myself. my kind of fun. This sample page is impressive and click by collection to see the A. G. Spalding Baseball Collection for example. Not that someone would want to license these but just for interest. http://digitalcollections.nypl.org/collections/6c7dc4f0-c5f5-012f-ff48-58d385a7bc34#/?tab=about Some of these are 2.5MP but another subject was 11MP full size, free! Loads of duplicates, also whole books. Mighty Dan Casey. (maybe not that Casey, but it makes good conversation?)
