    How accurate are these 21st century recreations? Voshart is the first to admit this is a creative project more than a historical one. He tells Smithsonian Magazine the results are “my artistic interpretation”. On Medium he writes the images are “more art than science”. “Sculptures and busts were idealized images of the emperors” states archaeologist Jane Fejfer from the University of Copenhagen. Referring to Emperor Augustus – the first to rule the Empire from 27 BC – AD 14 – she outlines how “mass-produced models were sent out to local workshops around the kingdom, which they then carved the portraits...

    I've checked some lists of image-hosting sites, but perhaps someone can point me to good ones: -free -minimal "registration" (prefer not, or ability to use fake name) -no propaganda such as promoting BLM, homos, etc.

    I have been using to upload images and display them at Free Republic for years. Not one of those images has ever disappeared until now. Got this one this morning I don't know what the image was so I am downloading all the ones I have for safekeeping. The war on free speech is accelerating as we approach November 3rd.
  • TinyPic is shutting down in 2019

    TinyPic is shutting down its image hosting service because we can no longer support a free service that derives 100% of its revenue from ever declining on-site ad revenues. While you may continue to host images from our site until further notice, we encourage you to consider selecting one of the premium plans offered by our sister site, Photobucket. Thanks for using TinyPic for your hosting needs over the years. We apologize that we can no longer continue providing this service, but Photobucket is a great option going forward.
  • NASA Captures First Air-to-Air Images of Supersonic Shockwave Interaction in Flight

    NASA ^ | 3/5/19 | Matt Kamlet (?)
    March 5, 2019 NASA Captures First Air-to-Air Images of Supersonic Shockwave Interaction in Flight One of the greatest challenges of the flight series was timing. In order to acquire this image, originally monochromatic and shown here as a colorized composite image, NASA flew a B-200, outfitted with an updated imaging system, at around 30,000 feet while the pair of T-38s were required to not only remain in formation, but to fly at supersonic speeds at the precise moment they were directly beneath the B-200. The images were captured as a result of all three aircraft being in the exact...

    Cool image time! Yesterday the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter team released 460 images taken by the spacecraft’s high resolution camera, HiRISE, as part of their normal and routine image release program. As I am want to do, I like to scan through these new images to see if there is anything interesting hidden there that will show up eventually in a press release...Sometimes however I find images that might never get a press release but probably deserve it....

    I saw a new Reuters article entitled "Crowd controversy: The making of an Inauguration Day photo ," which reported that the popular images to the left and right of the CNN images ( taken from this panorama view ), were taken at different times, the one on the right of President Barack Obama's first inauguration was taken at 1:27 p.m., while Reuters reported that the other one showed U.S. President Donald Trump's inauguration at 12:01 p.m. Meanwhile, the CNN image shows Trump giving his speech, and it appears a lot of people showed up. Perhaps the traffic was such that...

    HiRISE, the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment, is the largest and most powerful camera ever flown on a planetary mission, sending back incredible beautiful, high-resolution images of Mars. While previous cameras on other Mars orbiters can identify objects about the size of a school bus, HiRISE brings it to human scale, imaging objects as small as 3 feet (1 meter) across. The HiRISE team has just released more than 1,000 new observations of Mars for the Planetary Data System archive, showing a wide range of gullies, dunes, craters, geological layering and other features on the Red Planet. MRO orbits at...

  • Latest Images from Pluto: 'It's Complicated,' Says NASA

    The New Horizons probe has sent back the latest images from its historic July 14 flyby of Pluto. While the first close-up photos of the dwarf planet, taken from 7800 miles above the surface, had the New Horizons team—and people around the world—giddy with excitement about intriguing features like 11,000-foot-tall ice mountains, the latest, downlinked over Labor Day weekend, have left them scratching their heads. "If an artist had painted this Pluto before our flyby, I probably would have called it over the top—but that’s what is actually there," said New Horizons principal investigator Alan Stern, of the Southwest Research...
  • Has anyone noticed this about images on the Internet lately?

    Has anyone noticed how it has become more difficult to find images on the Internet lately. Used to you could search Google and a page could be found, you'd click on the image, then you'd be able to get the direct link to the graphic online. Well I'm finding this to be a lot more difficult lately and have noticed a few trends: (1) a lot more of the images are indicated to be "pay" images that you can't use without paying for them as in iStock or Shutterstock, (2) articles are being published as pdf or in similar fashion...

    you can see the best-ever images of Pluto, our solar system's most distant (dwarf) planet. The animation is made up of images taken by NASA's New Horizons spacecraft between April 12 and 18 from a distance of 69 to 64 million miles from Pluto. They capture one complete rotation of Pluto and its moon Charon... The images have already surpassed the Hubble's resolution, but there are plenty of features too subtle for the spacecraft to pick up. In fact, the images don't even show all of Pluto's known moons yet -- let alone any smaller ones we've yet to discover...

    Today marks the 25 year anniversary of Adobe Photoshop being launched and changing the way we see the world. Here’s a look at how Photoshop started and how far it has come in the past two-and-a-half decades. The birth of the software can be traced back to 1987, when developer Thomas Knoll created a simple pixel imaging program called Display. It was able to display grayscale photos on a black-and-white monitor.
  • Defending Public Abortion Images (Part 1)

    02/06/2015 6:06:35 PM PST · by Morgana · 9 replies ^ | March 27, 2014 | Trent Horn
    Last week, a professor at the University of California in Santa Barbara allegedly assaulted a pro-life activist and stole her and her sister's signs containing graphic images of abortion. The picture above shows the professor, Dr. Mireille Miller-Young, accompanied by two other students who helped her carry the signs away. While almost everyone thinks people should have the right to publicly display images of abortion (except for pro-abortion activists like this professor who say it's “visual terrorism”), many people, including pro-life advocates, are divided over whether it is prudent or even morally right to publicly display such images. In this...
