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 nice PhotoPlus Expo story, digitizing books, using Lightroom on location and how to update to Mavericks.

  • In The Master Never Stops Being a Student Nick Devlin writes about attended a talk by Greg Heisler on his just published Fifty Portraits at PhotoPlus Expo -- and who he bumped into in the audience.
  • See how the John Rylands Library at the University of Manchester digitizes its cultural heritage with the PhaseOne iXR.
  • Julienne Kost shows How to Use Lightroom on Location by creating a template for on-location shoots and importing its catalog rather than the just the photos so you have all the catalog goodies (edits, rankings, etc.) you made on location.
  • Before updating our operating system, we always monitor RoaringApps to see if our mission critical applications (like scanner drivers) are compatible. VueScan is Mavericks-compatible, we're happy to report. And Lemkesoft has just released its $39.95 GraphicConverter 8.8.2 with a fix for a "possible slideshow issue on 10.9," among new features. Macintouch is another valuable resource, particularly in straightening out misconceptions.

More to come...
