Here’s Why Instagram Chose to Break the Frame

Here’s Why Instagram Chose to Break the Frame Instagram cracked the restrictive barriers of its iconic square format yesterday, announcing to the world that it intends to remain the dominant platform of the visual content world. Initially created so that the every picture could be seen full screen on any device and any orientation, the square frame also incidentally made reference to the Polaroid format, adding another touch of the nostalgia that made Instagram so popular. So why change it? 14 Million Whitespaces a Day Numbers speak: 1 in 5 images posted on the photo sharing platform had whitespace around it because the image was...

Humor: The Exchange Rate of Pictures and Words

Humor: The Exchange Rate of Pictures and Words You’ve heard that a picture is worth a thousand words, right? Well, perhaps not always. Redditor doowi1 created this humorous illustration showing the Google result for the exchange rate between pictures and words over the past half decade. “Take a picture, it’ll last longer,” they write. Sadly, this isn’t an actual easter egg built into Google’s search engine, but we think the company should definitely consider adding it. [via PetaPixel] [via...

Where to Begin With Your Photography You’ve just bought your first digital camera and have never owned a camera before — not even film. You open the box, take out the manual, and there is nothing in there that tells you how to take photos. Just about the workings of the camera. You want to take beautiful photos. So where do you go to begin? “The Photographer” captured by Norbert Reimer One of the most daunting things many of us have to do is open a big box and figure out how a new piece of technology works.

Usain Bolt Floored by Segway-Riding Cameraman

Usain Bolt Floored by Segway-Riding Cameraman World champion sprinter Usain Bolt had a scary encounter with a clumsy cameraman at the World Athletics Championships in Beijing today. After winning the 200m race, Bolt was upended after the cameraman lost control of the Segway he was riding. The incident happened during Bolt’s victory lap around Bird’s Nest stadium, where Bolt won 3 gold medals in 2008. As the cameraman rolled alongside the sprinter with a camera in hand, the Segway ran up onto a metal camera railing, changed direction, and zoomed right under Bolt’s legs. Here’s what happened from a few different...

Instagram Now Supports Landscape and Portrait Format Photos Starting today, Instagram users will no longer be limited to posting square photos. The Facebook-owned photo-sharing company just announced that it is finally enabling support for landscape and portrait format photos and videos. From its inception back in 2010, Instagram has been known for its recognizable 640×640 filtered photos. But the company is lifting the square aspect ratio restriction in order to help photographers better tell their stories. “Square format has been and always will be part of who we are,” Instagram says. “That said, the visual story...

How to Stitch a Panorama in Photoshop

How to Stitch a Panorama in Photoshop If you have a camera that’s a few years old—maybe a crop-sensor—and you don’t have a super-sharp ultra-wide angle lens to go with it, it pretty much narrows your chances of capturing a wide panorama down to zero, right? Wrong! As Aaron Nace demonstrates via this wonderful method, there is absolutely no limit to creativity except your own vision: This method uses Photoshop’s photomerge technique to create a breathtaking panorama using several different shots. Basic Guidelines Use a sturdy tripod when shooting panoramic photos. Stay level when tilting the camera from...
