I'm an amateur photographer, and a television producer has sent me some email. He'd like to use some of my photos of my school for a TV show, in exchange for credit and a DVD of the show. What should I know? [more inside]

I have a website where I upload all of my photos and license them as public domain. Each photo is individually listed as public domain, each has a link to it's Creative Commons "license" as a work in the public domain, and the site is rather obviously all about photos in the public domain. The problem - Large companies are taking my photos and, without editing them, putting their copyright on them. Is this evil, and how nasty should I be about it? [more inside]

Disgusting Speedo Filter...I found a great picture of Fidel Castro a couple of years ago. He was on a trip to the beach and wearing nothing but a bathing suit. Alas, my Google-fu is weak and I cannot find it again. Has anybody else seen this? If you need motivation, there's a class full of middle school social studies students who are depending on you!

Just had a bunch photos of the kids taken at Sears Portrait Studio. I ordered 10 sheets, plus the digital files on disk. It cost $150 -- $99 for the prints, $40 for the files, plus tax. Is it worth it to order the prints through Sears or should I go through a (cheaper) online photo site? [more inside]

"We need to use that picture of that pregnant singer from the cover of Mary Claire in the next show," says my boss. "What's my budget," I ask? There's a pause. My budget is nothing. "Can't you just get permission? As a promotion?" I make a note. "When do we need it by?" "Yesterday. As long as you get me the release by Friday, we're good." Yes, this is my job.
Anyone have tips on successfully licensing photos of celebrities... for as little money and hassle as possible? [more inside]

Trying to remember a web site from some time back. Guy had pictures of some of the most beautiful places on the Planet. The pics included himself, back to camera, and bare-assed. Little help?

I have 4GB of photos spanning the last 7 years of my life - they're sitting on my linux webserver and the other day I compressed the directory using the gzip command while I reinstalled my photo album software.
When I went to extract the gz file, it just gives me an extensionless file as opposed to the directory structure that it once was.
I have a bad feeling the directory structure wasn't preserved when the file was compressed.
I have tried extracting it but to no avail but I know there are photos in there, because when I head the file there's a clear file name in it.
Is there anything I can do to get at least the files back? I don't care if I lose the directory structure at this point, just as long as I get the photos back.

We love to take pictures. Lots of them. And we want to love to tag them with metadata. XMP, IPTC, doesn't matter, as long as the metadata is IN THE FILE (for JPGs) and not in a sidecar file. We also love sharing our photos with family and friends (and just family and friends, thank you). [more inside]

What's the best stock photo site (including pay sites)? Along the lines of this question
, I'm looking for a high-quality site that offers royalty-free stock photos. I'm looking for basic corporate techie stuff for an IT government (read:not-for-profit) web site - people working at a laptop, servers and wiring shot from cool angles, etc. The previous question brought up some good free stuff, but what about pay sites such as Corbis? I'd really like some sort of subscription-based setup instead of paying a la carte for each photo (if that even exists).
