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 photo fact check, Robert Shults, starting from scratch and Pixelmator for 99 cents.

  • In 'All of This Space Was Full:' A Photographic Fact Check, Alan Taylor presents six images by Reuters photographer Lucas Jackson showing the size of the crowd attending the inauguration on the National Mall. The detailed zooms show the accurate time on the video screens (the Smithsonian Tower's broken hands were at 1:15, Taylor reports). White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer's claim that the space was full "is not true," Taylor concludes.
  • In Photographing the Science Of Death and Decay, Jonathan Blaustein interviews Robert Shults about photographing the Forensic Anthropology Center at Texas State, which was designed to be the largest human decomposition lab in the world. The 19 images are not all easy to view.
  • Thom Hogan asks, What Camera Would You Pick if You Had to Start From Scratch?. After summing up your options, he suggests you really don't need to think from scratch.
  • The well-regarded iOS image editing software Pixelmator is currently on sale for 99 cents.

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