Facebook Debugger to clear photo cache

Have you ever linked something to Facebook, like a blog post or website, only to find that an old photo keeps getting pulled in by FB? This has happened to me and it sent me hunting for a solution. Facebook often stumps me but this one is pretty easy. Evidently, FB actually caches or stores the image on their own servers and when you post that URL the photo they have stored is pulled up. Go to the Facebook Debugger and enter the URL you want to update. It will re-scan the website or blog post and pull up the current photo.

Meet Bob, the head of the studio.

This is Bob, the plastic head that hangs around the studio. We use him as a stand-in for roughing in lighting and as a focusing target in the classes and workshops. He’s pretty nice and is the least creepy of all the inexpensive mannequin heads I could find on Ebay. If you don’t believe me then try the search for yourself. Be warned; you won’t be able to un-see some of those heads once you see them. We tried having an expensive, realistic head in the studio a few years ago but it was just freaking everyone out.

Wookie love

Sesha Smith, who assisted me with my film editing project over the last year, sent me a thank you card today. It went straight up on the wall of the editing area. It’s a tiny instant print of a Wookie doll that she and her husband travel with. You can see the rest of her fine work on her website at Convey Studios.
