2 photo tips via lifehacker

I’ve mentioned lifehacker before, a great site for software and organization tips. I was catching up on posts, and I found two photo-related ones I wanted to pass along.

First, for the holidays: make your own Christmas ornaments from 4x6 or 5x7 photos. It is a simple projects that the kids should find fun and a nice way to add family and friends to your tree. Step-by-step instructions with photos on photojojo via lifehacker.

Second, great for your travels: erase tourists from scenic photos. The secret is to take multiple shots using a tripod. Then, you can use layers in Photoshop and masking to make the offending people go away. The comments on lifehacker are interesting, and dsphotographic has the details.

Bonus fun: a cool holiday easter egg from flickr. Add Santa's beard or hat to any flickr photo by adding a note.
