HACK THIS PHOTO4,452*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!

Many of the people in this circle are among the most interactive people on G+. Contribute top their themes, get to know them,  I think it will enhance your G+ experience.Best Regards+Charles Lupica ────────The circle has been checked for accuracy by most of the involved curators.  I would also like to thank +Steve Gill +Jason Borg +Manuella Betaille for their help in checking the existing themes.There are now over 400 themes, theme pages, and perhaps as many as 1000 curators but not all themes are created equal. I often talk about what it means to me to curate a theme and how I view things. To me, the best themes are the ones that have highly interactive curators. The vast majority also have a page to compliment their theme. A theme page is a great place for the curators to share information about the theme and to list the name or names of the people currently curating the theme. IMHO, a good theme page should provide information about the theme, how to participate, and who is curating the theme.  Most theme pages share some of the best work.  A few share all submissions.There are many themes that were created and then abandoned by their creator so I wanted to know, "Which themes rock?". I asked the G+ community to tell me which themes have highly interactive curators and an active community. This circle is based on community feedback and my personal view of what it means to have a theme that rocks.  ────────A good place to start if you are new to themes is perhaps the about page of +Monochrome Monday or the about page of +Daily Photography Themes +Daily Fine Art Themes.  If there are any themes that you feel rock that aren't mentioned, be sure to add a comment to this post, include the name of the theme, what day of the week the theme takes place or daily, the name of the page, and the name of the curators.  If there is no page, please state this.  Themes without a page are less likely to be listed but some very interactive themes don't have a page. 2012-08-29 13:45:173048691106
Billy Wilson417,065Virtual Travelers CircleThis circle was created of those who have an interest in exploring the world using Google Maps/Earth/Hangouts/Street View from the comfort of their own home. I made this circle based on nominations, people claiming they had an interest, those who were part of +Artistic Google, and those who are part of +Virtual Photo Walks™. I hope this circle helps strengthen and grow a community around this interest, so please consider sharing this post with your friends. You can add these people to your circles by clicking "View Shared Circle". +Artistic Google is a theme on G+ where people find spots in Google Street View and capture them and edit them. +Virtual Photo Walks™ is something started by +John Butterill and +Bruce Garber that uses Google+ hangouts to bring people to locations around the world they normally wouldn't be able to get to.  #CircleShare   #GoogleStreetView   #Google  2012-08-23 19:00:38102212937
Jeff Sullivan341,904Daily Photography Themes on G+: Theme Page Circle v2.0Daily photo themes are a great way to share your best work.  Many of the theme creators/curators also maintain a Google+ page on the theme, so following the daily theme pages can be a great way to find creative work by others for enjoyment and inspiration.  Some of the pages highlight some of the curator's favorite participant contributions, others are set up for participants to tag the page in their photo and automatically have their work appear in the page's stream.  Lists of the daily themes, with notes on any participation details, are maintained by the following people:+Eric Leslie  - http://ericleslie.com/guides/daily-photography-themes-googleplus/+Kol Tregaskes  - http://bit.ly/kolgplusphotodailyhashtags+Ray Bilcliff  - http://trueportraits-nature.com/2011/11/g-photographers-daily-themes/Typically to participate you simply Include the theme hashtag, in the text of your post, and others can find it by clicking on the hashtag or in searches.  If you want interaction though, don't sit around waiting: you get what you give.  Be the interaction you want to see!  Or just browse photos and get inspired.  There's no "one right way" to enjoy Google+; interaction isn't a prize to win or something to compete for.  I only mention it in the context of making new friends with similar interests.  Over the course of the past year, I've met a lot of fun and inspiring people, many of whom I now get out and shoot with regularly, and others I hope to meet and shoot with some day.  Whatever you're here for, a photography theme can categorize images in ways which may help you find the types of images you'd most like to see or photographers you might like to meet.I've found 394 themes so far, but if I've missed some, please mention them in the comments and I'll include them in a future update!2012-08-10 01:07:41394161339

Jeff Sullivan131,363Daily Photography Themes on G+: Theme Page Circle v1.0Daily photo themes are a great way to share your best work and to find creative work by others for enjoyment and inspiration. Many of the theme creators/curators also maintain a Google+ page on the theme.  Some of the pages highlight some of the curator's favorite participant contributions, others are set up for participants to tag the page in their photo and automatically have their work appear in the page's stream.  I like to discover new photographers and to get inspired by great photos, so for the +#SelflessSunday Theme on G+ page I look for a few of those types of posts to share, rather than have the page simply duplicate-post all contributions (and mirror the "see all posts" functionality that clicking on the hashtag already performs).  I'd also be concerned that auto-posting all contributions might set the page up for a high volume of self-promotional spam.  I'm not trying to advocate on approach though, if any curators would like to offer how/why they manage their pages in a certain way, that's fine, I'm open to suggestions.  I also like to catch up on curation later in the week when I can see all posts, and the ones I highlight can be discovered by community members who weren't online when the original post flew by on the stream.Lists of the daily themes, with notes on any participation details, are maintained by the following people:+Eric Leslie - http://ericleslie.com/guides/daily-photography-themes-googleplus/+Kol Tregaskes - http://bit.ly/kolgplusphotodailyhashtags+Ray Bilcliff - http://trueportraits-nature.com/2011/11/g-photographers-daily-themes/Just Include the theme hashtag, like today's #SelflessSunday, in the text of your post, and others can find it by clicking on the hashtag or in searches.  If you want interaction though, don't sit around waiting: you get what you give.  Be the interaction you want to see.  Or just browse photos and get inspired.  There's no "one right way" to enjoy Google+; interaction isn't a prize to win or something to compete for.  I only mention it in the context of making new friends with similar interests.  Over the course of the past year, I've met a lot of fun and inspiring people, many of whom I get out and shoot with regularly, and others I hope to meet and shoot with some day.  Whatever you're here for, a photography theme can categorize images in ways which may help you find the types of images you'd most like to see or photographers you'd like to see more work from.I was having some trouble finding photography theme pages, so if I've missed some, please mention them in the comments and I'll include them in a future update.2012-07-08 16:02:281884116

I often talk about what it means to me to curate a theme and how I view things. To me, the best themes are the ones that have highly interactive curators and a theme page. To me, a theme page says the curator cares about the theme and about the community. A good theme page should provide information about the theme, how to participate, and who is curating the theme.There are many themes that were created and then abandoned by their creator so I wanted to know, "Which themes rock?". So, I asked the G+ community to tell me which themes have pages and highly interactive curators. This circle is based on community feedback and my personal view of what it means to have a theme that rocks.A good place to start if you are new to themes is perhaps the about page of +Monochrome Monday or the about page of +Daily Fine Art Themes.

Throwback Thursday - California

A nostalgic look back at Artistic Google photo albums, where our arty team finds cool Google Street View captures and tarts them up creatively.

Here is our very first album from January, 2012 - California.

Each Thursday, we'll share another blast from the past, but you are free to go and browse the many many albums the team has built up  since 2012 - just look in our Photos section.

Some news for our ArtyGooglers:

With the warm weather here in the northern hemisphere and vacations in mind, we are moving to a monthly format with tours ending the last Sunday of each month and new tours starting at the same time. Note that our current tour of Russia is extended to May 31, 2015.

Thanks, +Hazel Caplen for this lead on Dave Shaw's clutter remover for the new Google Maps. (Jan)

This is a great tool for +Artistic Google participants wanting to remove the clutter from street view images in the new Google Maps.
Dave also created a tool specifically for street view:

However, CleanMap deals with both street view and map/satellite view.

Throwback Thursday - California

A nostalgic look back at Artistic Google photo albums, where our arty team finds cool Google Street View captures and tarts them up creatively.

Here is our very first album from January, 2012 - California.

Each Thursday, we'll share another blast from the past, but you are free to go and browse the many many albums the team has built up  since 2012 - just look in our Photos section.

Some news for our ArtyGooglers:

With the warm weather here in the northern hemisphere and vacations in mind, we are moving to a monthly format with tours ending the last Sunday of each month and new tours starting at the same time. Note that our current tour of Russia is extended to May 31, 2015.

Throwback Thursday - California

A nostalgic look back at Artistic Google photo albums, where our arty team finds cool Google Street View captures and tarts them up creatively.

Here is our very first album from January, 2012 - California.

Each Thursday, we'll share another blast from the past, but you are free to go and browse the many many albums the team has built up  since 2012 - just look in our Photos section.

Some news for our ArtyGooglers:

With the warm weather here in the northern hemisphere and vacations in mind, we are moving to a monthly format with tours ending the last Sunday of each month and new tours starting at the same time. Note that our current tour of Russia is extended to May 31, 2015.

We also noticed that Google has replaced their Classic Maps with the new maps. The new maps present some challenges but you'll get used to them quickly. In the meantime, our talented +Jamal Masood has a few tips if you are not quite ready for the new maps.

How to get back the Google Classic Maps

To get Google Classic Maps, use Google's own link https://maps.google.com/maps/myplaces which is still working at time of writing. It displays the Google Classic Maps. When the map opens it shows a warning that "This feature is not supported in the new Google Maps, so we've temporarily switched you to classic Google Maps". 

Just ignore this warning and happily keep on working in Classic Google Maps. Make sure that the above link is bookmarked.

Another way to get back to the Classic Map is to use the link https://www.google.com/lochp

The only draw back in this method is that there is no "short URL" feature as is in the Classic Maps and after copying the long URL, you will need to use a URL Shortener to shorten the URL. Go to https://goo.gl to translate the long URL to a short one.

If you prefer to use the new Google Maps but with less clutter in Street View, use the"Lite" version which can be accessed by Clicking on the Lightning icon (if you have it) on the right bottom of the Street View. However in the "Lite" view there is no way to hide the labels, road names and the directional arrows so you will still need to crop those out or erase them. In addition there is no short URL function so you'll need to use the URL shortener discussed above. (Jamal and Jan)___

"Worker and Kolkhoz Woman" by +Jan McCartney 

Inspired by +Patrick Sheeran's monument find, and In celebration of the election win in Alberta, Canada (Texas North) by the leftist New Democratic Party.

After capturing the GSV, I used Photoshop to edit out the wires, then used Topaz Adjust and probably the Liquid Chrome filter. I removed the background and layered it with a capture of a Soviet flag trimmed to fit, then back to Topaz Impressions > Chiaroscuro for some abstraction and finally a bump to saturation and brightness. (Jan)

"Worker and Kolkhoz Woman" for +Artistic Google's tour of Russia, curated by +Rob Robinson +Jamal Masood +Patrick Sheeran and me.

"The ideal and symbol of the Soviet epoch", this dynamic sculpture group of two figures with a sickle and a hammer raised over their heads was made from stainless steel by Vera Mukhina for the 1937 World's Fair in Paris and subsequently moved to Moscow. The sculpture is an example of the socialist realistic style, as well as Art Deco style.

I noticed now that the following link to get the Google Classic Maps is no longer working;
https://maps.google.com/maps?output=classic&dg=opt

Clicking on the link redirects me to;
https://www.google.com/maps/@?dg=opt&newdg=1

The newly opened page displays a message that;
"You're in Lite mode" and it also gives a link to "Switch back to full Maps".

Clicking on the link switches the Map to full mode where following message is displayed;
"You're using full Google Maps" and it also gives a link "Switch to Lite mode"

It seems Google has finally killed the 10+ years old Classic Maps. 

RIP Classic Maps. I loved you and will miss you.___Here is a great link suggested by +Hazel Caplen for getting back to Classic Maps - https://www.google.com/lochp

Are you ready for our next tour?

RUSSIA (April 27 - May 10, 2015)

We last visited Russia way back in 2012 when Street View coverage was limited to a few cities. Now the Magic Bus will take you on a tour all the way from the border of Finland down through the Baltic states, across the top of Kazakhstan and Mongolia to the Japan Sea and across the Sea of Othotsk to the Kamchatka Peninsula. Along the way, you can stop off in the usual touristy spots in Moscow and St. Petersburg, taking in the architecture, cafes, museums and street scenes or hit the beaches of the Black Sea. 

For inspiration, check out Google's "Russia Highlights" at https://www.google.com/maps/views/streetview/russia-highlights?gl=u

For fun, take a look at some cool finds at http://www.streetviewfun.com/top-100/russia/

And of course, re-visit our 2012 album at http://goo.gl/V7gz1b

We'd love to learn your techniques for digital enhancement. Feel free to share a note about your software or any unusual processing steps.

If you've never participated in Artistic Google and would like to, check out our "About" page to find out how.
