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. This time we look at the 'Never Again' movement, Qimage One, G'mic 2.2 and Photoshop's Field Blur tool.

  • In Teenagers Demand 'Never Again' in an Age of Mass Shootings, Alan Taylor presents 36 images of yesterday's response to the Parkland mass shooting last week. "These teenagers are speaking clearly for themselves on social media, speaking loudly to the media and they are speaking straight to those in power -- challenging lawmakers to end the bloodshed with their '#NeverAgain' movement," he writes.
  • Qimage One is Mike Chaney's reincarnation of the original Qimage, using advanced interpolation and sharpening technology to "produce the best quality print with the least amount of work."
  • David Tschumperlé previews the new release of G'MIC 2.2, an open-source, generic and extensible framework for image processing that runs over 950 different image processing functions on GNU/Linux, MacOS and Windows. You can give it a spin using its Web interface and an image whose size is under 5-MB.
  • Hilary Grigonis shows How to Blur a Background in Photoshop in Mere Minutes using the Field Blur tool.

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