Photoshop’s murder mystery: “A Crime With Many Layers”

Here’s a neat Halloween idea from my Photoshop pals:

Professor Photoheim’s been murdered at his Halloween party. There are three suspects. To solve the crime you must say who did it, how he or she did it, and post a screen grab of your evidence to our Facebook page.

Here’s your first—and largest—source of evidence: the PSD of the scene of the crime. Download the PSD from Creative Cloud or directly here. Wednesday at 10AM PST we’ll release more clues needed to solve the #PsMystery.

More fun stuff is on its way, so stay tuned via Facebook and Twitter.



Photography: “Angel City”

The urgent, unsettled score gives this look at LA a fresh flavor. Gavin Heffernan writes,

Since we’re only 452 days away from the 20th anniversary of one my favorite movies HEAT, I set it to one of the soundtrack songs, an incredible piece of music by Elliot Goldenthal. The cityscapes of HEAT inspired me to make movies long ago, so it was a special treat looking down on LA from some similar angles to the classic Michael Mann film.

“The Google+ feature you’ve never used is actually one of its most innovative”

Nice coverage of the Stories feature we launched a few months back: 

“In an ideal world, you could have a little personal historian following you around and just keeping track of everything you did,” said Smarr, leaning forward eagerly in his chair. “Maybe in certain circles there are the rich families that just have the family photographer who takes notes and makes beautiful albums of trips and stuff, but most people don’t. We thought, ‘Maybe someday everyone can have his or her own personal historian.’”
