You're proud of your digital snapshots and want to share them without spreading them across the Internet. The solution is to watermark your pictures, just like Corbis, Life, and other big online archives do. Easy Watermark Studio Lite creates and places watermarks on single images or whole batches of pictures. It adds text and image watermarks, and it includes a variety of preconfigured watermarks that let you establish copyright, prohibit copying or unauthorized use, and other digital rights. It supports JPEG, BMP, and TIFF images. Easy Watermark Studio Lite is freeware, but it's also available in a Pro … Read more
The timing of a new Yahoo project in New York may leave some wondering whether the dissolution will be televised.
The Web pioneer is in the midst of transforming 5,000 square feet of midtown Manhattan office space into a studio that will feature two sets, seven edit rooms, a state-of-the-art control room, and a green room, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The facility is expected to be used as part of a pact announced in October with ABC News, in which the media giant's news division will distribute some of its content via Yahoo News. The news departments … Read more
The number of photos you can submit depends on the format. For example, you can fit up to 400 photos on a large 20x40-inch poster for $25, or you can spend half the price on two minibooks that can hold up to 50 photos each.
The Printstagram site is vague on details and neglects to mention the print quality of the photos themselves, but I doubt anyone would even notice if the prints turned out grainy or overexposed.
Regardless, any of the projects would make a creative gift for the Instagram-obsessed. Check out other ways to have fun with Instagram photos at Printstagram.
Correction, December 5: This blog post originally had the incorrect spelling of Printstagram.… Read more
There are photo-editing programs available to match every skill set, whether you just need to rotate and resize your images or you have some serious correcting to do. PixBuilder Studio falls somewhere in the middle, with an uncomplicated interface that holds a surprisingly comprehensive set of features. Although PixBuilder Studio isn't going to replace any of the big-name photo-editing programs, it might be just the thing for serious amateurs and even some professionals.
The program's interface is familiar and intuitive, with menus across the top, a toolbar down the left side, and a set of panels down the … Read more
Michael Jones was most recently the CEO of failed social-network MySpace. But that's not what he's talking about now.
In fact, Jones covers that chapter of his life quickly, in one sentence, without taking a breath.
"One of the things I learned at MySpace," he says, starting to talk so fast that I cannot understand him. I'm about to ask him to repeat what he just said, but it's too late. He's already talking, at a natural pace, about this his just-launched company, Science. He calls it a "technology studio," a … Read more
LOS ANGELES--Warner Bros. has ironed out a short-lived glitch with the film studio's UltraViolet service just in time for the upcoming "Harry Potter" Blu-ray release.
Today, the updated Flixster app enables users to not only stream movies available on UltraViolet, but also download them to iPads and iPhones, a feature that was missing from Warner's initial movie releases on UltraViolet.
UltraViolet is the name of the technology standards and specifications that will enable film fans to store titles on the servers of film distributors, or what is commonly known as the cloud. From now on those … Read more
Bethesda Game Studios has a knack for creating enormous playable worlds that give gamers hundreds of hours worth of play time. Just like what we saw in Fallout 3, The Elder Scrolls franchise gives players an incredible amount of freedom to do whatever they want, even if that doesn't include following the main story arc.
The follow-up (though notably not a direct sequel) to 2006's Oblivion, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has easily been one of the most anticipated role-playing games in recent memory. It's the genre standout for this holiday season, and we've already been racking up the hours in the enormous land of Skyrim. … Read more

This is exactly how the Hollywood studios want the online video sector to look: several companies paying for and distributing their content while competing on things like convenience and price.
Disney has renewed a licensing agreement with Netflix and penned a new deal with Amazon that will give both a crack at much of the same content.
Netflix will continue to offer on its streaming service past seasons of Disney's "Hannah Montana" and of Disney-owned ABC's "Ugly Betty," "Grey's Anatomy," and "Lost." Amazon's deals also brings many of … Read more
Genelec isn't a big name outside the recording industry, but the company, founded in 1978, is a leader in professional monitor systems. More recently Genelec speakers are becoming known to discerning consumers. The company's active speakers have built-in amplifiers, like the tiny 6010A speaker I'm covering today, so it can be directly hooked up to an iPod, computer, or game.
I spent some time with the 6010A at the Audio Engineering Society convention held last week in New York. The listening conditions on the show floor weren't ideal, but on early Sunday morning it was fairly … Read more
