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 Fortepan Iowa, Shin Noguchi, a new printer for the ISS, essential Photoshop training and the Nikon D850's autofocus accuracy.

  • Fortepan Iowa is a collection of high-resolution, copyright-free family snapshots and vernacular imagery is a feast of middle-American life from 1860 to 2000. Rian Dundon picks out a few of the best.
  • Japanese photographer Shin Noguchi documents his father's battle with lung cancer in Please Don't Die, Dad. It's a story of small moments beginning with "the first time I took a photograph of my father when I knew a secret about him which he didn't know himself."
  • The International Space Station is retiring its Epson 800 printer for a heavily-modified all-in-one HP Envy 5600 that retails for $129.99.
  • Julieanne Kost's Photoshop CC 2018 Essential Training: The Basics is now available on LinkedIn Learning and on It's a deep dive, essentially.
  • Jim Kasson tests Nikon D850 AF-S Accuracy and reports the results in a series of interesting graphs.

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.

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