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 Photos for Mac 1.1, Google Photos desktop uploader, emailing from Lightroom and video jargon.

  • Jason Snell goes Hands on with Photos for Mac 1.1, which will be released with El Capitan this fall but made it into the public beta released this week. He looks at geotagging, batch titling, album sorting, editing extensions and more.
  • John Nack points out that Google Photos has a convenient Desktop Uploader for Mac OS and Windows. Just insert your memory card into a card reader attached to your computer and the uploader does the rest.
  • Julieanne Kost demonstrates Emailing Photos from Lightroom whether you use a Web mail service or an email application. Promise not to go crazy with this:
  • In Understanding The Jargon of Video, Michael Reichmann discusses FPS, bit rate, bit depth, color sampling, CODECs, I-Frame and IPB, clean HDMI, LOG files and LUTs, 4K vs. UHD, time lines and frame rates plus why you should shoot 4K to deliver HD.

More to come...
