How to use Photoshop to restore an old, faded photo
I wrote/gif’d a short ‘how-to’ piece for the dailydot, featuring techniques I used to fix this photo.

Before photos existed only as .jpgs, backed up on Flickr andFacebook and Imgur and in cheap portable hard drives, they were subject to the ravages of time. 
Prints only lasted so long. The negatives, from which they were originally made, were lost or destroyed. Saving these analog memories from their inevitable destruction can be as easy as a one-click desktop scanner, but sometimes the images have already suffered from damage. 
Software like Adobe Photoshop can breathe life back into faded photos—if you know how to do it right.

If you want to learn how to kiss, get off Reddit

According to Jezebel, one redditor’s guide on stealing your first kiss from a girl starts out on a good note before it turns creeptastic.

Considering it starts out suggesting you target the girl by getting her alone and making sure she has plenty of alcohol in her system before moving in for the kill—er, the kiss—we’re not sure there’s anywhere to go but downhill from there.

12 crucial Tumblr tricks you probably don’t know

1) Know your limits.

  • The tag limit. Only the first 5 tags you put in a post are searchable.
  • The search limit. Only the first 200 posts under a tag show up when you search that tag.
  • The posting limit. You can post or reblog no more than 250 posts a day, and only 75 of them can be photos. The day ends at midnight EST.
  • The friending limit. As many people discovered during the Mishapocalypse, you can only friend between 250-300 people on Tumblr in a day.
  • The queue limit. The queue can only hold 300 posts at one time.
  • The ask limit. You can only send 10 asks within a single hour, and only 5 of them can be anonymous.

2) Keep Tumblr from truncating long text posts.

Tumblr’s default behavior when reblogging long text posts is to reblog them as links instead. To make sure long posts get reblogged as text—or to truncate them if you only want to link to a shorter text post—go to the top right corner of the post and click the icon next to your settings. The drop-down menu will give you the option to change the format of the post. If you have a text post, clicking “Reblog as text” will retain the text of the post up until its original “read more” line.

3) You don’t need to insert a blank .gif at the bottom of your photosets in order to show full-sized photos. There’s already a workaround for this. Just go to your settings, select the Dashboard, and click “show full-size photos.”

4) Allow anyone to reply to any of your posts directly from the dash. For reasons no one can fathom, replying to people on Tumblr is a tricky thing. Sometimes you can’t reply until you’ve had someone friended longer than two weeks. Sometimes you can’t reply with photos. It’s a strange world. But one thing is certain: sticking a “?” in your post will cause the message, “Let people answer this” to appear. Check the box and profit.

5) tumblr.com/photos lets you see a mosaic of photos on your dash. Try it and be amazed.

6) Filter your dash by type by using “/show/[mediatype]”. Appending “/show/text” to tumblr.com will let you see only the text posts on your dash. This also works for photos, links, quotes, audio, chats, and videos.
