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 2017 National Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year Contest, HEX, clipping paths, a ridiculous Copyright Office proposal and Adobe Sensei.

  • Alan Taylor has published the second part of his 2017 National Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year Contest showing a few entries in the contest whose deadline is Nov. 17.
  • In Images With a Purpose: The Photography of HEX, Charles Purdy takes a look at HEX, a group of New York-based photographers who are " using photography to challenge classism, racism, sexism and other societal ills."
  • Stymied by how the latest Photoshop handles Clipping Paths, Kirk Tuck asked for help -- and got it. See the comments for the solution.
  • The U.S. Copyright Office is proposing to limit the number of unpublished works per application. To just five (down from unlimited). Carolyn Wright is suggesting you tell them five is not enough by leaving a comment before the Nov. 13 deadline. We just did.
  • In Mastering Creative and Experience Intelligence: A Year With Adobe Sensei, Adobe CTO Abhay Paranis looks back on what the company has achieved with its artificial intelligence initiative. "Today, there are more than 100 Sensei-powered capabilities in product or in our pipeline across Adobe Creative Cloud, Document Cloud and Experience Cloud," he writes. "These features are helping our customers work smarter, faster, more efficiently and effectively -- whether they're designing an app, editing a film or launching a marketing campaign."

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

We've also updated our Calendar today and there's always more to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
