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 an Apple Raw Update bug, image processing chips, social media rights and an interview with Thomas Knoll.

  • Apple warns about a Sony RX100 bug in v4.08 of its Digital Camera Raw Compatibility Update. "After installing Digital Camera RAW Compatibility Update 4.08, Raw files from Sony RX100 might appear optically distorted." The workaround is to revert to version 4.07.
  • In Milbeaut and EXPEED Thom Hogan explains those image processor chips in your camera. "Canon calls theirs DIGIC, Sony has BIONZ, and Nikon has EXPEED. These special chips are, for the most part, actually customized variations of existing imaging processor chips."
  • The American Society of Media Photographers' Social Medial Tutorial expresses the association's "grave concerns about Instagram's unreasonable Terms of Use -- particularly the fact that, once you agree to their terms, you have no right to terminate the agreement. Even after you close your account, Instagram can continue to use your images and your name without restriction. Get the facts." Two free guides are available on using social media.
  • Michael Reichmann and Kevin Raber interview Thomas Knoll, who with his brother John developed Adobe Photoshop. Knoll discusses the Creative Cloud and the recently announced Photoshop Photography Program.
