In this recurring column, we 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 Pixa, Lumoid, Lenscap and a Camera Raw 8.4 manual install.

  • The $30 Pixa [M] promises to automatically organize your images, even auto tagging them. You can use its Live Folders feature with Dropbox "for a perfect team sharing solution."
  • In Why Buy a Digital Camera When You Can Rent?, Lauren Goode recounts her experience renting from Aarthi Ramamurthy's new Lumoid rental service, comparing it to BorrowLenses.
  • Lensrentals has introduced Lenscap rental protection plan. There are two options: no frills Lenscap and Lenscap+ (which even covers bear attacks). "Simply, if a covered event occurs to equipment protected by a Lenscap plan, your liability is limited to the lesser of the cost to repair the equipment or 10 percent of the replacement cost."
  • Adobe has posted Camera Raw 8.4 manual install instructions for Mac users of Bridge CS6 who no longer see metadata or can't edit images in Camera Raw after the update.
