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 large-format contact prints, changing Lightroom's name, HEIF/HEIC/HEVC apps, Mug Life and a copyright issue.

  • In A Baker's Dozen: Large-Format Contact Prints, Mike Johnston begins a new series of reader-contributed pictures. "The next call for work is for smartphone pictures that you wouldn't have made but for the fact that you had your smartphone with you," he writes.
  • Roger Cicala has a little advice about About Getting Your Camera Wet in his teardown of a salty Sony A7sII. "The beach is the sworn enemy of your gear. If the salt-spray doesn't get you, the sand will," he advises.
  • Scott Kelby posts a Lightroom Name Change Tip and the Lightroom Classic/CC Survey Results. Pretty funny. Just use the Identity Plate editor to change to his free Lightroom Pro graphic. Survey results? About 78 percent are not planning to move to the new cloud-based version of Lightroom. The versions aren't exclusive of each other, however. We're using the cloud for smartphone photos and Classic for our DNGs, for example.
  • In Getting Going With HEIF/HEIC and HEVC Image and Movie Formats, Howard Oakley lists "the first third-party tools to work with these highly efficient compressors." Including one free tool.
  • The iOS app Mug Life animates your portraits. Seeing is believing:

We're running the public service notice below to remind Americans they can sign up for the American Health Care from Nov. 1 to Dec. 15 to be insured in 2018.

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