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 ads in Instagram, removing dust spots in Lightroom, drones and vegetables.

  • The day after Apple CEO Tim Cook burned prominent Silicon Valley firms for "gobbling up everything they can learn about you and trying to monetize it," Facebook announced it would be injecting targeted ads on Instagram. What's next, Sepp Blattner joining the board of directors?
  • Julieanne Kost covers Removing Dust Spots and Imperfections in Lightroom, highlighting the Visualize Spots tool and the difference between Cloning and Healing:
  • Kirk Tuck digs into the rules and regulations surrounding drones and photography. He distinguishes between amateur and pro use while touching on counter-intelligence concerns. "My point of view is that the widespread use of drones and the plummeting cost of ownership," he writes, "is akin to putting fully automatic weapons into the hands of children." Funniest comment: "You have sources in counter-intelligence?"
  • We used to think "Eat your vegetables" was the family slogan. Seattle photographer Brittany Wright photographs her vegetables after arranging them in neat color arrays that are, well, good enough to eat.

More to come...
