Man Trying to Figure Out What Just Dropped on Him

"When you see an image of smiling people on an ad or a website, there's a pretty good chance it's a stock photo — a generic picture of some situation, like "Woman Laughing Alone with Salad." There are easily millions of stock photos online for download, usually for a price. But the WNYC Data News Team is adding a few more: photos illustrating quintessential NYC situation"

Stock violining is harder than you think

Useful visual lessons in the art and etiquette of holding your violin and bow, illustrated by stock photos. You can also use some random violin, it doesn't have to be yours, or even used to produce music. Because violins are apparently very sexy props that show how very sexy you are. You don't need to already know how to hold a violin to appreciate this tumblr.

Can I get this in cornflower blue?

Search stock photos by color scheme. I generally hate (hate hate hate) that obnoxious stock photography that shows up everywhere, but this is actually kind of cool. Pick a color, and find pictures that match your site. I'd love to see this kind of tool hooked up to more personal photo galleries.

Download stock photos without paying, don't go to jail.

Download stock photos without paying, don't go to jail. Istockphotos.com seems to be offering free stock photography submitted by artists and photographers. And it's endorsed by Zeldman, even. But...what's to keep people from uploading Eyewire images and calling them their own, thereby illegally distributing them to thousands of people who'll use them on websites, magazines, etc. Istockphotos is legally covered, but what about the designer?
