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 Alive for managing Live Photos, a Magnum print sale ending tomorrow, what to do with Mary Ellen Mark's FM2 and an Adorama Pix deal on metal prints.

  • Federico Viticci reviews Alive, a full-featured Live Photo manager and export tool developed by Clean Shaven Apps. "Thanks to its integrated approach, I've deleted every other Live Photo manager and converter from my iPhone and unified my workflow in Alive," he writes. We think he likes it.
  • The Magnum Square Print Sale ends tomorrow at 6 p.m. EST. Magnum is offering signed and estate-stamped, museum-quality prints for $100 each (or the whole set of 68 for $4,900). Photographers include Elliott Erwitt, Robert Capa, Tim Hetherington, among many others.
  • The estate of Mary Ellen Mark is selling her Nikon FM2 with its 28mm lens with 50 percent of proceeds to be directly donated to The American Red Cross. "Neither have been used in many years, so they may or may not be in working condition," the estate notes. In fact, you can bet the foam light seals are mush (but they can be painstakingly replaced should you want to actually use the camera; we've done it). The high bid at the moment is $2,375.
  • Adorama Pix is offering 30 pct. off metal prints with promo code PXAFN30 through Nov. 30. Submit your 8-bit JPEG or TIFF sRGB images with 300 dpi resolution up to 60-Mb in size for the best results.

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
