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 fireworks advice, Adobe's assessment of its move to the cloud, a Harper's Magazine story about a special photograph and PhotoStitcher.

  • Joe McNally is Prepping for the 4th!, giving some sage advice about shooting fireworks. Like can all the Auto stuff and maybe use a black board as a shutter. It's reprinted from his LIFE Guide to Digital Photography chapter on the subject. And it won't hurt to read it now.
  • The Register reports Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen admitted the company is "looking for a tweak that would lead to a better customer outcome. We don't have any that we've identified today" in a call with financial analysts. Despite 700,000 cloud customers, Narayen admitted, "Our decision to discontinue perpetual licensing of new versions of our desktop products has caused concern with some customers."
  • Harper's Magazine has published Photograph With Shirley by Julie Hecht, her personal memory of a childhood moment that became a treasured photo. She wrote about it later, but the photo said it all, she observed.
  • Teorex has released its $19.99 PhotoStitcher 1.3 [MW], adding spherical, plane, cylindrical, fish-eye and stereographic projections. PhotoStitcher is $19.99 for Mac OS X 10.6 through 10.8 or Windows XP and up and is also available in the Mac App Store.
