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 one view of Apple's plan for Photos, an Instagram show at a museum, how five images editing applications handle a 4K display and Instagram's Hyperlapse technology.

  • Serenity Caldwell believes Photos for OS X isn't going to be a pro app -- and that's OK. Apple is providing a simplified interface to powerful functions so "new users are being subconsciously trained on bigger, more complicated programs."
  • In From Smartphones to Museum Walls, Rena Silverman reports on the Mobile Photo Now exhibit at the Columbus Museum of Art in Ohio through March 22. The curators selected 650 images from 45,000 for the first cut, finally narrowing it down to 320 images by 240 photographers.
  • Chris M's Raw Photo Editing App Performance Comparison pits Canon's DPP, Apple's Aperture, Capture One Pro 8, Adobe Lightroom 5, and DxO Optics 10 against each other on a on a 4K display "doing some basic tasks like browsing images, adjusting exposure and straightening/rotating."
  • In The Technology behind Hyperlapse from Instagram, Alex Karpenko describes "describe our stabilization algorithm and the engineering challenges that we encountered while trying to distill the complex process of moving time lapse photography into a simple and interactive user interface."
