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 Gordon Parks with Ralph Ellison, managing smartphone photos, Apple Photos for photographers and a print sale.

  • In Gordon Parks and Ralph Ellison, Artistic Giants of Postwar Harlem, Tamara Best writes about Invisible Man: Gordon Parks and Ralph Ellison in Harlem, an exhibit of over 50 objects (including newly-discovered images) which has just opened at the Art Institute of Chicago.
  • In Zen and the Art of Managing Smartphone Photos, Brian X. Chen confesses to spending "days experimenting with neurotic tagging systems, tedious backup processes and album management, and finally turned to Brian Christian, a computer scientist and philosopher, for advice." Google Photos was the answer.
  • The Apple Photos Book for Photographers by Derrick Story is written for "any shooter who likes the Apple ecosystem, wants powerful simplicity in their software and enjoys using tools designed by great developers such as Macphun, DxO, and Affinity." You can get the ebook for $15 using the code APPLE15. A print version is planned for later this year.
  • is having a print sale. Metal prints at 10x10-inches are $18 (regularly $35) with coupon code PixMetal10x10 and 6x6-inch prints are $10 with coupon code PixMetal16x6. Coupon code MEMORIAL15 gets 15 percent off prints that are not canvas, metal or acrylic. Shipping is free on orders totaling $39 or more.

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