My 19-month-old son, Stanley, has learned how to use a camera and to shout out cheese as he presses the shutter. He has a few of my old crappy point-and-shoot film cameras in his toy box to play with, but today I gave him my old Canon G12.

We’re always looking to up our Photoshop game, but the lists of Must Know “techniques” or “skills” or “tools” we run across typically disappoint us by being either to basic or too niche. This useful Top 10 by Nate Dodson of Tutvid is an exception.

This week, a fire at Puerto Rico’s largest power plant triggered a chain reaction that has left the majority of the country without power, air conditioning, and water. These satellite images show what it looks like when 1.5 million homes lose power all at once.

Fujifilm caused a great deal of excitement this week by announcing its first medium format mirrorless camera, the 51MP GFX 50S. But “medium format” is a a relative term rather than a specific sensor size, so how does the new 50S’s sensor stack up against other digital cameras on the market?

Here’s an amazing short film titled “The Old New World” by photographer and animator Alexey Zakharov of Moscow, Russia. Zakharov found old photos of US cities from the early 1900s and brought them to life.

It looks like Amazon has abruptly ended its $12 per year plan that provides unlimited photo storage, which included RAW files and was a fantastic deal for photographers looking for a backup solution.

Well, you can add “captioning photos” to the list of jobs robots will soon be able to do just as well as humans. After some training, the latest version of Google’s “Show and Tell” algorithm can describe the contents of a photo with staggering 94% accuracy.

A trip last weekend to the iconic Death Valley Racetrack Playa has left me with a burning need to write, and unfortunately it is because of the worst kind of people.

Apple hasn’t officially published the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus sample photos that were shown off during the phones’ recent unveiling, but the photos are found on the display phones in Apple Stores. One man recently visited an Apple Store and collected all 195 official photos to share with the world.

If you’re a member of the photo sharing service Flickr, you might want to change your password as soon as possible. Yahoo, which owns Flickr, has reportedly suffered a major hack.

Today, we know the Eiffel Tower as the much beloved symbol of Paris. It wasn’t always like this though. In fact, many Parisians were not too fond of their new landmark back in 1889 and many of them wanted it taken down.
