Libraries which are participating in Libraryhack have made some of their copyright free photos available with links to a high resolution version of the image file for easy photo mashups.
You can use these images from State Library of South Australia, the National Library of Australia, State Library of Victoria, and State Library of New South Wales and create amazing photo mashups and enter them in the competition.
Here are some ideas for photo mashups – but let your imagination go wild. We can’t wait to see what new and interesting interpretations can be created using photos from our collections.
This photo mashup was created for Libraryhack using an image from the John Oxley Library collection at the State Library of Queensland.
This photo mashup was created for the ABC Open Project Now and Then by Anthony Scully.
This photo mashup “Mirage” includes historical images from the National Library of Australia including: Skiers admiring the view (nla.int-ex108-s11-dm), car at Fitzroy Crossing (nla.int-ex206-s17-dm) and child at waterfall (nla.int-ex108-s9-dm). The artist also included the family of emus, Dalhousie ruins, Lake Eyre tree line, and sand ripple background.
