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 cooking metaphor, using a frame as a Lightroom identity plate, our Timeline from SFMOMA and Simprovised revealed.

  • In On vision and postprocessing, Ming Thein proposes the cooking process as an apt metaphor for digital photography. Post processing is relegated to mere plating with capture being the actually cooking and composition the shopping. Does that mean if you're sharing smartphone shots, you're eating out of the can right from the stove?
  • Scott Kelby walks you through using a custom frame you can download or create in Photoshop as a graphical identity plate in Lightroom.
  • In our SFMOMA slide show, we mentioned the museum's new approach to audio tours built by Detour. Today, we received an email with a link to the Timeline of our visit. Besides some bare stats, it provides thumbnails of a few images whose stories it told us, although we spent the bulk of our time with the app hearing about the building itself. Quite a nice souvenir.
  • Homer Simpson made animation history last night in Simprovised. In a three-minute segment, Homer responded directly to live questions from fans. Voice actor Dan Castellaneta used Adobe Character Animator to both speak for and move the animated character in real time.

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
