I'm compiling a set of 30-40 photographs related to any and all aspects of disease for a high school visual literacy project. The students are high school juniors who are struggling with literacy and writing. I'd love your suggestions for compelling, diverse, and striking images and sites that have collections of same.

I want to download a bit of Landsat data - two small countries worth - but can't find any way to efficiently do this via GloVis or elsewhere. Where can I just select places on a map (or use my GloVis-exported) scene list to download these in bulk? Given 200MB/scene and the 80 scenes I need, it'll be 15.6 gigs downloaded (and likely around 40 unzippped), but that's not the problem; there just doesn't seem to be a way to do this. [more inside]

is shutting down June 1st and doesn't seem to allow people to upload pictures anymore.
It was an ideal solution for my needs not only because there was no signup but also because you could see the # of "image views"
on the administration page making it perfect for stat-tracking Craigslist posts. Anyone know of another free image host that has similar functionality?

As a photographer with particular interest in 'stitcher' type panoramic images I was interested in the hardware and software that Google have used for their street scene application. Does anyone have any info? What type of camera and lens combo and specialist software, even if it was written just for Google.

Is there a website or anything with high quality art images?
All kind of artists, from Picasso to Hundertwasser.
I think there should be a torrent tracker or anything related to art/artists.

Does anyone know where I could find a web service to do that photo transform trick where Person A (say Margaret Thatcher) becomes Person B (say Tony Blair), generating a number of progressive stills in between?

I want to calculate the average contrast, luminance and any other interesting photo statistics (things that might be useful/important in psychophysics) for a bunch of images. I've heard that both Matlab and Photoshop can do this. I'm still trying to avoid learning Matlab, so Photoshop is preferred (I tried google, and some image manipulation books I found in the library, but neither were very helpful). [more inside]

I've been browsing through a website whose pages are set up to be viewed as indexes/directories with no HTML. Many of the files listed are image files, and I'd like to be able to see them without having to click on each one individually. Is there some kind of add-on or plugin that will automatically show thumbnails of all the images on the page or am I stuck clicking on each one?

In an image like this
, does the alignments of the faces affect the viewers' perceptions or opinions of the people, and if so, does this cognitive bias for or against left or right carry over even to images where the faces are the same
(Ie: "I think both people on the left side of either image look more trustworthy.")? Does the alignment of a single subject
and addition of negative space
also have an affect ("The woman in the second image looks meaner.")?
I'm not so much asking for a referendum on these particular examples as I am curious about any empirical studies or statistics relating to this topic. Thanks!

Is it possible to trim Vista Breadcrumb sections so that the breadcrumb bar doesn't clip off most of the path in long titles? I.e. anything over say, 10 characters gets cropped, so that long paths can be shown?
Also, is there a way to fix the glitchy second row of tabs in firefox? I want the second row of tabs to have the same height as the first, so that graphics don't go all screwy.

Mac question. In Safari, A coffee cup icon with two curved arrows comes up when I can't see a certain type of image (kind of like a refresh icon with a coffee cup in the middle). In Firefox they show up as a grey outlined box with a red X on the left hand side.
