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 the Ansel Adams Act, a Las Vegas night shot, a Photoshop GPU FAQ and a TransferJet dongle.

  • Rep. Steve Stockman (R., Texas) has introduced HR 5893, the Ansel Adams Act: "To restore the First Amendment Rights of Photographers." The text of the bill asserts, "It is contrary to the public policy of the United States to prohibit or restrict photography in public spaces, whether for private, news media, or commercial use." No distinction, however, is made between outdoor photographers and film crews shooting on location, the latter of which have been threatened by proposed increased filming fees.
  • Derrick Story details How I Created the 'Night in Las Vegas' Image using a special Scene mode on his Samsung NX3000 and a Lightroom preset.
  • The Photoshop CC and CC 2014 GPU FAQ "provides a quick reference guide to video card usage in Photoshop." GPU-enhanced features added to Photoshop CC 2014 include Upscale, Blur Gallery 2 and Focus Mask.
  • Toshiba showed its TransferJet dongle at CES. The dongle plugs into your iOS devices to facilitate wireless file transfers from compatible devices like Sony Cyber-shot digicams.
