An Instagram hashtag uncovers a massive network of child sex abuse imagery traders

For pedophiles, a single hashtag opened the door to one of Instagram’s seediest corners, one where images of sexually exploited children were openly traded as if they were collectibles. For anyone willing to engage, finding images of child sexual abuse was about as simple searching for a laptop on Craigslist. The transactions started in the open with one of several hashtags — #dropboxlinks was one of the most popular, although variants for those seeking boys, gay, or a specific age group were pr...

This cool tool deletes the background from images so you don’t have to use Photoshop

If you’re tired of firing up Photoshop for lightweight image editing tasks, this little tool is good news for you. Called Remove.bg, it can clear out the background of an image in seconds, no lassoing or any other editing hassle required. Because it uses AI trained on images of people, Remove.bg only works on photos of humans for now, immediately separating subject from background and leaving your image clean and ready for whatever you plan to do with it. While Remove.bg has attracted a bit of a...

Facebook: Devolver Digital’s Instagram Page Led to Pulled ‘Gris’ Ad

An image on Devolver Digital’s Instagram account is the reason why Facebook recently removed an ad for indie platformer “Gris” from its platform, a representative told Variety on Tuesday. “Facebook rejected a ‘Gris’ launch trailer ad for this ‘sexually suggestive’ scene so this year is going great so far,” Devolver Digital tweeted on Monday.

Where to travel by zodiac sign

Maybe you think astrology is stupid. Maybe you think it’s a bunch of hippie-dippy junk science people use to excuse bad behavior. “Well you should have known I was going to was going to cheat on you, Janet. I’m a Scorpio!” Ok, well put that aside for a second. Because if you buy into astrology — if only for the time it takes to read your horoscope — it can be pretty entertaining. And sometimes, surprisingly accurate. Besides, even if you’re not into astrology, there’s a good chance someone yo...

reading on the road: joyful

New York City, January 7, 2019. Last week, I shared a selfie on Instagram, and talked about how I’ve noticed that the last year took a physical toll on me. I don’t know how noticeable the changes are to the outside world (although my sister-in-law could see it), but I can look at photographs of myself before Hurricane Harvey and after, and tell when they were taken without any ot...

The ColorChecker Passport is finally compatible with Capture One

Over the past several years I’ve found the ColorChecker Passport to be an invaluable tool for my photography. It lets me get consistent colour weeks or months apart, even using different cameras.
