More Stuff in the Commons

Updating a post from a couple of weeks ago, the Commons section of flickr welcomes yet another big collection from a major museum.

The Smithsonian Institution has posted more than 800 photographs this week, all with no copyright restrictions and all open for comments and tagging.

flickr is making a great case for being an indispensable classroom tool.

Not Reading the Fine Print

Ok, how many of you out there read the end user license agreement (EULA) for software or the terms of service (TOS) for a web site? Anyone? Bueller?

Yea, me neither.

Which is why I need to withdraw an earlier suggestion to give Photoshop Express, Adobe’s new online image editing and sharing site, a try.

According to someone who DID read Adobe’s terms of service, you may not want to upload your pictures to Express.

Adobe recently launched Photoshop Express, the company’s new online photo editing and sharing service, but as savvy readers have pointed out, to use Express you need to agree to terms of service that appear to grant Adobe the “worldwide, royalty-free, nonexclusive, perpetual, irrevocable” right to do basically whatever it wants with your images.

Apparently Adobe’s lawyers are working on a more appropriate TOS. However, until that’s in place, I’ll put any use of Photoshop Express on hold.
