HACK THIS PHOTO4,694*PLEASE READ - NEW FUN TO BE HAD!!!!* *Hack This Photo* _Our Photo.  Your Spin._ *(Open for the entire week)* Welcome to a special edition of @116361882895448900841!  The photo editing game where you take our photo and twist it, turn it, crop it, chop it, texturize it, pixelize it, make it your own.  Then post it for all of G+ to see! Everyone is welcome to play – no formal training, expensive software or previous experience is required to join us.  Use an app on your phone, the G+ photo editor, GIMP, Lightroom, CS6 – it’s up to you. Tonight we're joining forces with the fantastic @104600718104833273883 folks to explore the land down under, *Queensland* and the *Great Barrier Reef*!!! So what is @104600718104833273883, you ask? We'll let this snippet from their About page do the talking... _This project started long, long ago in a faraway land when photographer Ken Rathke felt that his creativity needed a boost one rainy day. It began as a a fun experiment with creatively processed images of California and blossomed into a weekly foray to exciting destinations - all virtually of course on the Artistic Google Magic Bus!_ _So where can we find travel pictures for screen capture and creative processing? Google Maps - Street View is perfect. It's Frugal National Geographic for those of us that like to dream. The challenge is to find the right angle, subject matter, cropping, composition and presentation._ _We wanted the images to have a certain raw quality that was already there, but hidden until brought out by the creative mind of the Artistic Googler._ To Play: Tonight we're giving you two options of playing. You can either simply HACK the photo we're supplying by clicking on the link below: https://plus.google.com/photos/116361882895448900841/albums/5796967343539305697/5796967346267396802 Note that the image supplied is based on the Google Street View and is copyright Google.

But how do we actually get to the Street View images of the reef?... For now, the only portals to Street View of the reef appear to be here, but once you're in, you can use the GSV navigation controls and arrows._ http://maps.google.com/help/maps/streetview/gallery.html#!/ocean _On this page, be sure that you select a site in the Great Barrier Reef to explore because there are other reefs in other parts of the world shown here also and the cognoscenti know that Hawaii isn't part of Oz..._  Remember that this is a speed hack, so open the shot in the editor of your choice, start your favorite song, and have at it!  When the song is done, so are you!
