We knew it was coming but it wasn’t just the expectation that made the announcement from Flickr such an anti-climax. The declaration that the photo-sharing site will now provide its own way for members to license their images, following the end of its agreement with Getty, was also disappointingly short of details. Flickr’s members can […]

This means that new features will be available as soon as the work on them is complete, rather than waiting for the cycle to come around again.  To sweeten the deal, owners of CS3, CS4, CS5 and CS6 can get a...

To celebrate the release of my book later this month, Surreal Photography: Creating the Impossible, it seemed entirely appropriate that this month's competition theme should be surreal.

You can use Photoshop manipulation, in-camera...
