TurboCollage, available for both Mac and Windows PC, can make collages that look like multiple spread out polaroids. Here's a sample screenshot of designing such a photo using TurboCollage:

Google NIK plugin is free now. It comes with an output sharpen and allows you to select the viewing distance of your print as well as different settings in regards to print resolution, etc. NIK was $150 but Google now offers it for free. After installing it the options will be located in the filters menu. Pretty handy.

I found an interesting page offering both online and offline tools to create "gores" to be glued on a real sphere. The most interesting is "USGS Daisy-Petal creator (requires .NET 2.0)", which creates "half gores" joined at the poles, thus making much easier to align and glue. http://www.winski.net/?page_id=7

There should be an EXIF tag DateTimeOriginal that should have the exposure date and time. It can be rewritten by other programs but I don't see the purpose of rewriting it. Use EXIFTOOL or any other exif tool to retrieve the value.

Yes, it can be very annoying when the date created of photos is altered after copying or transferred to another device. But the original date taken of photos is still available in the Exif Metadata. The software tool File Date Corrector for Windows can retrieve the necessary information by reading the metadata of Exif and IPTC and correct the system provided ...

You will see that even within a white wall, the color temperature is different, although these differences are not perceivable on the white wall (it all looks white), applying the ...

You can receive training to help you become more aware, but not more perceptive, in the way you mean. Perception is not absolute with fixed values; but, is relative to the abilities of your senses on a continuum. You can become aware that something should be happening on an intellectual level. Such a revelation is set into action with an observation and a ...

I've never seen any apps that can train you that way, but I have seen a smartphone colorimeter apps that identify colors, as well as an actual smartphone colorimeter/light meter (or at least its Kickstarter). There are more apps to simulate exposure settings, to help train you in appropriate exposure settings for a given scene (e.g., CameraSim). That ...

With experience you become more aware as to how lighting and the color of the illuminant will change the way a vista will reproduce. You begin to see that shadows on snow have a blueish tint and you become aware that tungsten lighting is biased towards the yellow. We humans see with our eye/brain and that complicates. Try this enlightening experiment. ...

I rather doubt it, since perceived color has little to do with actual color balance. That's why you tend to interpret the color of an object as immutable whether you observe it in direct sunlight, late afternoon (sunset), or indoor incandescent lighting. The only reason we can tell, say, fluorescent vs. low-temperature (Edison bulb) incandescent is ...
