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 Fred Ritchin, Photospector, Peekpoke and FotoMagico.

  • Jeremy Lybarger interviews Fred Ritchin for Mother Jones in Can Photojournalism Survive in the Instagram Era?. "Photographs are not there to show us the world," he notes, "but to show us a version of what may be happening. The ideal scenario is one in which the reader is motivated enough to become actively engaged in establishing the meaning of the imagery." Ritchin's Bending the Frame, which examines what photojournalism in the digital age, is available for $15.38 on amazon.
  • The 11ers has released its free iPad app Photospector supports editing high resolution images (but not Raw files) in real-time, smart albums that tap into metadata and keywords plus batch editing for a $1.99 in-app purchase.
  • Peekpoke has released its $4.99 LrCat Preview for Lightroom to display image previews from a Lightroom catalog.
  • Boinx Software has updated its $99.99 FotoMagico [M] slides show application to version 4.3.1 with optional usage and diagnostic transmissions to Boinx and a number of fixes, many adding anti-aliasing to features involving masks and layers.
