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 China, Scotland, Instagram, printing photos, a Luminar bundle and a Photo Mechanic deal.

  • Alan Taylor presents 37 spectacular images of China Viewed From Above. The aerials depict "the vast diversity of landscapes across China, from cities to mountains, deserts to sea shores and much more." BTW, through April 20, it's Ching Ming, the Chinese memorial season, when families gather to honor the memory those who have died.
  • In Sharing Stories in Photos, Terri Stone interviews Fran Mart about his images of Scotland. "For me, photography is akin to sitting by the fire, sipping a cup of freshly brewed coffee or a dram of whisky and sharing stories with good friends," he says.
  • Josh Constine reports Instagram Will Let You Download Your Content. A spokesperson told Constine, "We are building a new data portability tool. You'll soon be able to download a copy of what you've shared on Instagram, including your photos, videos and messages."
  • Gannon Burgett and Hillary Grigonis list The Best Place to Print Photos Online: Seven Top Photo Labs. You're better off ordering online than walking into a drugstore, it turns out. Surprised?
  • Skylum has updated Luminar [MW] with $200 worth of bonus software that includes video tutorials, an ebook, a preset pack and custom overlays.
  • According to a tweet, Camera Bits is offering its $150 Photo Mechanic at a 15 percent discount through April 15 when you use the code ENGAGED2018 at checkout. This offer is for v5, the latest, but we've been using v4 for many years to get a quick peek at our latest images. It does much more than that but it does that better than anything else we've used. And we can't think of another application whose code has survived this many system software update unscathed.

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