…Gizmodo has written a Pirate’s Code?

Pirate's Code

Gizmodo has proposed a Pirate’s Code for those that travel the murky waters of the torrent world, and they’re a rather honest look at the way most pirates of the digital seas think about what they do.

Check out the eight articles to see if you agree, and you’ll be treated to words of wisdom like:

  • Ye wouldn’t be a pirate if ye didn’t download Photoshop. But for the office, such manners are frowned upon. Make your employer pay so that others may play.
  • TV is to be downloaded, movies are to be attended when a man returns to shore.
  • Every man shall upload half of what he downloads, with the saints filling in the rest.
  • A man shall steal as much music as he needs to quench his thirst, assuming that he supports the band by attending concerts and buying t-shirts.

…Photoshop is as real as it gets?

As Real As It Gets

In case you missed it, this ad for Photoshop, called “As Real As It Gets”, is a fantastically creative interpretation of what the program would look like if it existed in real life.

Also, be sure to check out the Flickr set for some behind the scenes shots, because the size of this ad is almost unbelievable!

…Photoshop filters can kill a picture?

Every Photoshop Filter Before

…Photos can be fun without edits?

Tell A Lie

Considering last week’s Iranian missile story, I though that Henry Hadlow’s Tell A Lie project was rather fitting:

    The most controversial lies told with photography today are those told by news photographers who manipulate their work photographs to tell a different story, for example, Liu Weiqiang‘s faked photograph of antelope and the China-Tibet rail link.

He also ads that he wanted to “flip this lie on its head and use a camera to mimic common Photoshop effects”.

Along those same lines, I thought that Fubiz’s Google Images idea was another fantastic way to take a photo with a digital spin that gives it a simple yet fun effect:
