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 Photoville, Tumblr's Laph for Live Photos, Afterlight and celebrating.

  • In Under the Brooklyn Bridge, the New Photoville, James Estrin previews the unorthodox New York photography festival where images are presented in shipping containers with a 14 image slide show.
  • Tumblr now supports Live Photos on the Web with its Laph technology. "Whenever you see that famous Live Photo icon, click and hold to make them swing," the company explains in announcing the new feature. And even better, Laph is open source so even Photo Corners can use it. Here's how it works.
  • Kate Wesson reviews the 99-cent Afterlight app. "This app has a great set of image adjustment tools, a beautiful collection of filters, customizable textures and light leaks, a blending tool for creating double-exposure photos, as well as a unique set of frames and borders," she writes. But it's missing a few things, she adds.
  • In The Last Chapter, Derrick Story finishes working on the print edition of The Apple Photos Book for Photographers. It's the latest task in a year in which "I've completed six titles for, written a book, launched a new Web site, opened a used camera store and have been fired from two writing jobs." Next move? "I put a camera in my shoulder bag, got on my bike, and rode off to the creek" where a few compositions caught his eye.

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