Picture: V&A

A reader has alerted me to the V&A's new crowdsourcing site. The idea is that the V&A has uploaded a whole load of photos that weren't properly cropped, and it wants you to do it for them. So it's Photoshopping on the cheap, but also fun, as one participant says:

I joined at the weekend and it's addictive.  Aside from the challenge of selecting the bet images/crops/details there's simply the joy of finding out about the randon items presented.  I now know what a yad is and that the card game snap was introduced in 1866.
