Eternal Light Organizes Photos Into Crazy ‘Near-Death Experience’ Slideshows

eternallight2

Created by photographer Peter Basma-Lord, the Eternal Light Mac and iOS app offers users a way to play back an infinite number of photos in a slideshow format, set to music, at any speed they like. If you so chose, you could select every single photo you have hidden deep within all of your external hard drives and play them back at breakneck speed — a sort of, near-death experience slideshow if you will.

And even though this may not seem like something one would want to do, it’s actually the idea that inspired Lord to create the app in the first place. Read more…

wikicommonsappheader

If you’re interested in donating your images to the public at large, Wikimedia Commons just made it that much easier. For a while now, their online media archive has brought together a huge library of free-to-use content under one roof; and because images uploaded to Commons must be licensed as public domain, GFDL, CC attribution, or CC attribution/share alike, everything is free to use and/or share.

Now Commons is releasing a new app (formerly only available in beta) that will allow users to upload photos to the Commons archive right from their phone and, it’s their hope, encourage more people to contribute “high quality educational photos.” Read more…

When it comes to Instagram, there’s been some serious controversy over ownership rights and Terms of Service. You can take the photos with the app, edit them in the app, host them on the app’s servers, and ultimately sign over certain rights to the app. Not everybody likes this arrangement.

Pressgram is creator John Saddington’s solution to the problem. It’s an Instagram alternative that allows you to host your images using WordPress (either .org or .com) and retain 100 percent ownership rights. Read more…
