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 Photoshop's Content Aware tools improvements, Davis's engraved photos, instantly sharing video on Google+ and comparing just lenses.

  • Julieanne Kost shows off significant improvements in the Content Aware tools of Photoshop CC 2014:
  • Harold Davis has posted a couple of black and white images that approach engravings. The latest is Cockeyed Cathedral, an interior shot of Bourges Cathedral. Previously he posted a charming view of Saint-Cirq-Lapopie that, for all the world, might be a Dürer.
  • You can now Automatically back up photos from your computer or camera using Google+. And, as Google's John Nack explains, you can also instantly share them.
  • In Just The Lenses: Canon vs Nikon Zooms at 70mm, Roger Cicala tests several optics divorced from their camera bodies and sensors. A comparison he finds useful enough to promise, "We'll be presenting field curvature graphs on all of our lens reports going forward." Try running Photoshop's infrared filter in a Black and White adjustment layer on a pair of those hyperdelic graphs.

More to come...
