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 a Retina iMac, the Rokinon 14mm f2.8, Photoshop World and a pretty picture.

  • In My Shiny Retina iMac, Ctein details his new Photoshop station, noting the application has "a quirk. OK, it's designed in there on purpose, but it looks like a quirk. When you're running at screen magnifications of 50 percent or less, it cheats on the rendering, doing calculations in 8-bit color to speed things up and subsampling the image." With a retina screen, there's less cheating.
  • Kirk Tuck explains how he actually came to use his $200 Rokinon 14mm f2.8 after he found a Lightroom/Photoshop lens profile for it.
  • In Come see us at Photoshop World!, Sarah McAlexander at Lensrentals provides a free Expo pass worth $40. Lensrentals will be giving away an iPad Air and Lensrentals gift certificates and many of the luminaries we link to here will be there (like Joe McNally and Terry White).
  • Just a pretty picture. Harold Davis captures Flowers on Black floating in space.

More to come...
