I'm looking for a famous photo from the 1968 Chicago Democratic National Convention: a policeman, carrying a club, has his arm back ready to strike the photographer. The cop has a helmet, a cigarette hanging out of his mouth, and a bored expression, looking right at the camera. [more inside]
I am an amateur photographer with 1) a subscription-based online portfolio, 2) a desire to take more control over my site, 3) a sense of reckless abandon, and 4) virtually no experience with, or understanding of, the inner workings of the modern internet. I'd like a really simple site on my domain to hold galleries of my images and a blog. Can I get there from here? How? [more inside]
I'm looking for a company that will take a plain photo of my dog, and create a painting from it, but add a little flare. I'd like my dog to be in a suit, maybe wearing glasses, in front of a book case. Here's an example: http://i.imgur.com/o8BSE.jpg [more inside]

I work for an advertising company that sells very high profile ad locations.

Can you read the letters and numbers on the number plate in this picture? For reasons that should remain confidential at this point, we are trying to track down the company that owns it. Unfortunately, the photo has a significant amount of motion blur (in two directions) and graininess, and Photoshop is not helping. (The only program that seems to handle the deblurring required, Amped Five, is expensive commercial software not available for casual use such as this.) This is a Swedish number plate, so the first three should be letters, the last three digits. Note how the last two digits look like '3' but not quite. None of the searches we have done on the Swedish Transport Agency's web site match a semi of this size.
With a digital photo frame is it possible to specify the order photos are displayed? I'd like to have a random set, interspersed with occasional strings of ordered photos. [more inside]

Why are satellite photos upside down? When looking at satellite pictures of cities in the northern hemisphere on Google maps, buildings that are leaning away from me are leaning towards the bottom of the screen. This gives me the impression that I'm upside down. The feeling is very strong despite my poor description of it. Is there a particular reason satellite pictures are oriented this way?
