Reviews of photography products that enhance the enjoyment of taking pictures. Published frequently but irregularly.
28 May 2013
In this recurring column, we'll highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at a Nikon email, QPict, Photomatix Pro and Adobe's acquisition of Ideacodes.
- "Your Nikon account is getting some upgrades," according to an email today from Nikon, referring (we presume) to Nikon Image Space. Among the benefits, "you'll soon be able to use your profile to write reviews, ask and answer questions, discuss articles and more." But you'll have to reset your password.
- Rune Lindman has released his $35 QPict 7.2.2 [M] with improved stability on Mountain Lion. We're old fans of QPict (our review is quoted on its homepage, in fact) and glad to see it's still available.
- HDRsoft has released its $99 Photomatix Pro 4.2.7 [MW] with support for Raw files from the Nikon D7100, Panasonic GH3 and Sony NEX-5R).
- Adobe has acquired the design firm Ideacodes, which specializes in the design and user experience of smart applications, digital products and networked communities. Emily Chang and Max Kiesler, co-founders of Ideacodes, are joining Adobe as Creative Directors of Creative Cloud. "We're thrilled to join Adobe at a time when Creative Cloud is beginning to take form, the potential to harness the power of connected networks is being realized, and the influence of good design on experience is being appreciated and expected from people worldwide," they said.
