Early Adopter Download of the Day: Nostalgia (Windows)

Posted on March 19, 2007. Filed under: Downloads, Photography, Pictures |

Windows only: Access your Flickr account from your desktop with Nostalgia, a gorgeous new photo-management app.

Nostalgia allows you to search Flickr remotely and create local sets from the photos you discover. It also supports local photo management and synchronizes to your Flickr account, allowing you to update your online photos as well.

And it’s a looker. Seriously, this is an app that will make Mac users jealous, with its lush interface and snazzy animations. Although still technically a prototype, Nostalgia is fully functional and a blast to use. Alas, I couldn’t get it to sync with my online account, but hopefully that’s a temporary glitch. I had no problem browsing Flickr at large and creating photo sets. Note to Yahoo: Buy this thing. Now.

Vista users can run Nostalgia straight from a browser; XP users will need to download an executable, along with Microsoft’s .NET 3.0. Nostalgia is free (for now–the developers haven’t announced their ultimate intentions for the program).

Skeleton “Valentines” Won’t Be Parted

Posted on February 17, 2007. Filed under: Photography, Pictures, Skeleton, Valentines |

February 13, 2007—In what’s been called a Valentine’s Day gift to Italy, archaeologists today excavated two interlocked Stone Age skeletons—leaving their “eternal embrace” intact and making it easier to analyze the double burial.

Discovered last week during construction not far from Verona, the setting of Romeo and Juliet, the roughly 5,000-year-old couple has already become an icon of enduring love to many.

Like Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers, the prehistoric twosome appear to be young, as evidenced by the condition of their teeth. But that’s about all that is known about them so far. They could just as easily be two brothers.

But dig supervisor Elena Menotti takes the romantic view.

“It was a very emotional discovery,” the archaeologist told the Associated Press last week. “From thousands of years ago we feel the strength of this love. Yes, we must call it love.”

Edit your images online with Picnik

Posted on February 4, 2007. Filed under: Design, Online Applications, Photography, Pictures |

Edit your images online with Picnik, a shiny new Flash-based image editor.

There’s quite a bit to Picnik, actually: you can do the basic resizes and tweaks that most other free image editors can manage; however, Picnik also comes with some nifty special effects, and can be used with a whole plethora of community photo sharing sites, i.e., Flickr, Imageshack, Photobucket, etc.

It’s not as powerful as Photoshop, naturally, but for a browser-based image editor, Picnik does a fine job.
