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 the business of reviewing products, Lightroom's long press keyboard shortcuts, Picture Keeper and a clothing sale.

  • In Pay Attention to the Man Behind the Curtain, Roger Cicala expands on his third-grader analogy with a more detailed discussion of lens tests and reviews. Interesting discussion, too. To which we would add that in our 17-year experience reviewing products, no company supplying review units has ever tried to influence us. We've had a publication's staff change what we've written (both our experience and conclusions), but we solved that problem by launching Photo Corners.
  • In his continuing series Lightroom Coffee Break, Adobe's Benjamin Warde reveals the little known trick of Using Long Press Keyboard Shortcuts:
  • Picture Keeper automatically searches your computer or device to backup photos, videos and contacts. You can add the $49.99 software to any 100-MB or larger thumb drive or buy integrated solutions from 16-GB ($79.99) to 64-GB ($119.99):
  • SCOTTeVEST's XXXI Olympiad sale features a 31 percent discount on its clever pocket-packed clothing (imagine a fashionable photographer's vest) with code RIO2016.

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