In this recurring column, we'll 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 shooting a ceramic project, a free online image processing tool, GraphicConverter and a tool to find and eliminate duplicate images.

  • Kirk Tuck describes a still and video shoot of Marja Spearman's The Forget Me Knots Project, which involved a installation of 1,000 ceramic knots. "The installation itself is temporary," Tuck writes, "and will only exist in the collection of images and video that we capture during its short tenure."
  • The University of Texas at Austin has released its Image Processing with Natural Scene Statistics "to perform digital image processing tasks such as enlargement (super-resolution), denoising, deblurring, color filter array interpolation, and image compression." You can process 1,000 images a day with the free service.
  • Lemkesoft has released its $39.95 GraphicConverter 8.6 [M] with layers, a brightness-with-curve function, DPHOTO service support, optional filmstrip display and more.
  • Overmacs has released its $9.99 PhotoSweeper 1.9.3 [M] with a new Digital Lightroom style, Retina display support, simplified workflow, improved compatibility with iPhoto/Aperture/Lightroom and more.
