    Framebridge: Custom Frames for Posters and Photos

    As I write this, I have a Soviet-era Yuri Gagarin poster leaning against my wall, a Marvel Comics Human Torch Fantastic Four cover poster sitting on a table, and a Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame poster sitting around somewhere. I’m sharing this not because I want to blow you away with […]

    Mini-You: Get a Customized LEGO Minifigure Photo of Yourself

    Just to avoid some nasty disappointment later on, I’m going to start off with the bad news: No, the service being discussed here does not allow you to acquire a LEGO minifigure in your own likeness. What Mini-You does let you do is get a photo of yourself in LEGO form, which is almost as good, […]

    Legacybox: Convert All Your Old Home Movies to DVD (Video)

    Believe it or not, kids, there was a time when home movies were taken on analog formats and not just your smartphone before being instantly posted on Facebook. But if you’re not a kid, and you actually own some old home movies (or photographs) on obsolete formats, there’s a new and easy way to get […]

    Flic: A Photo Management App

    I’ve often read statistics that say that we (“we” being human beings) have taken more photos in the last year than in the whole of human history before the year 2000, or some other outrageous claim. The reason for this is the popularity of cell phone cameras, and it acts as a nice reminder that […]

    1-Hour Photo: An App for the Patient

    It wasn’t that long ago when places like CVS or Walgreens would advertise “One-Hour Photo” development, the implication being that an hour was no time at all to wait for a completed roll of photographs. A lot has changed since then, though, and now people are used to seeing and sharing photos pretty much instantly. […]

    Artist VSE OK Shows Action Figures in the Real World (Pics)

      Russian photographer VSE OK has one very specific specialty: Photographing action figures in various (and sometimes disturbing) real world situations. The pictures are dark, funny, and probably aren’t going to win VSE OK any fans among these characters’ corporate overlords any time soon. One of the cool things about VSE OK’s work is that […]

    By this time it seems like we’ve been hearing about Kate Moss helping Playboy celebrate their 60th anniversary for so long.  But all the waiting has finally paid off, as the editorial has hit the internet in advance of Playboy’s historic 60th anniversary issue’s release in January 2014.

    Artist Ilya Kalimulin’s New Photo Series Plays With Brand Logos (Photos)

    For the last 80 years or so, the American public has been increasingly exposed to branding and advertising in more and more ways. And those logos and brands have been fertile territory for artists for almost that long. The latest is Ilya Kalimulin of Russia, who’s unveiled a new photo series that attaches familiar brand […]

    Emily Ratajkowski June 2012 ‘Darius’ Shoot: NSFW Outtakes

      Outtakes are nothing new in the world of modeling, since the general practice is to take a thousand more shots than you’ll ever be able to use before picking out the best ones. But if these rejected photos (courtesy of this website) of Emily Ratajkowski are any indication, that job may be harder than […]

    Possible Photos of Banksy Surface

      A big part of street artist Banksy‘s persona is his mysterious identity. As a result of his anonymity, very few (if any) photographs of the artist are known to exist, but Twitter user @DjJonHenry recently snapped some photos that he believes were of Banksy and his crew preparing for part of his ongoing residency […]
