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 Self Composed, the International Center of Photography, Google Photos shortcuts and FotoJet.

  • Self Composed: Rethinking the Selfie at SFMOMA tells how Adobe helped put together the hands-on exhibit in the Photography Interpretive Gallery. We tried it but you'll have to read our story to find out what we were doing.
  • As the International Center of Photography prepares to move to its new Manhattan home, Director Mark Lubell, formerly of Magnum Photos, talks to gallerist James Danziger. "This is really about opening a two-way conversation: you can have a coffee, there will be a few things on the walls so you can get the vibe of what's happening and then you can pay to see the gallery spaces on the first and second floors," Lubell says.
  • John Nack has a nice little memory aid for flying through his image edits on Google Photos for Web, which he hums to the tune of Old MacDonald Had a Farm.
  • FotoJet uses over 900 Flash-based templates to create photo projects like collages, banners, social media covers/posts, ersatz magazine covers, posters, gags and more. You choose as design, edit it and save/share/print it. And it's free.

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