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 LAB color adjustments, Sync 2.0, 25 Photoshoppers under 25 and the latest Threepenny Review.

  • In his brief but illustrated LAB Color Adjustments, Harold Davis shows you how he used the LAB color model to make adjustments to his overhead image of a green succulent. You can download the free Photoshop action he wrote to generate the adjustments, too.
  • BitTorrent has released Sync 2.0 and Sync Pro, a file sync and share tool based on BitTorrent technology that, the company claims, is up to 16x faster than cloud based services. "It is also more cost efficient, fully private and gives the end user more control," the company said.
  • Adobe is looking for 25 under 25, "scouring the globe, turning over every rock, to find artists that represent the future of Photoshop." Know anyone under 25 who uses Photoshop to express "their unique artistic perspective" and has created "visually stunning work?"
  • The mail today brought us the Spring issue of The Threepenny Review, which we've lauded as a literary magazine for photographers. And this issue is particularly delightful, reproducing 29 images from The Plot Thickens, the 35th anniversary exhibition of the Fraenkel Gallery in San Francisco. A few of the luminaries included are Garry Winogrand, Lee Friedlander, Helen Levitt, Eadweard Muybridge and Thomas Eakins. It also just happens to be the 35th anniversary year of The Threepenny Review as well.

More to come...
