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 internment camps, Adobe Stock, processing speed quirks and a list of lists.

  • In Photos: Japanese internment camps were a grave American mistake, Rian Dundon reminds us of the injustice perpetrated in 1942 against Japanese-Americans with images that include some of the photos made at the Manzanar camp by Ansel Adams.
  • "I know lots of photographers and except for a few, they are all trying to figure out more ways of making money from their craft," Terry White begins his discussion of Why You Might Consider Becoming an Adobe Stock Contributor.
  • Well, this is interesting. In his pursuit of slit scan images, Jim Kasson discovered some processing speed quirks of Lightroom exports. He needs to resize 8,000 8000-pixel-wide images to just 1000 pixels and build previews. Lightroom, using just two cores of his Windows machine, requires over 24 hours. Interesting discussion follows, too.
  • It's list season. We generally avoid lists (with the exception of restaurant menus). Ming Thein has published Part I and now Part II of his ultimate lens list. And Time magazine has culled gazillions of images down to the Top 100 Most Infuential Images of All Time (but you've seen them all already). That's the end of our list (but we warned you we aren't into lists).

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