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 Guatemala's Fuego volcano, Slim Aarons, Photoshop blend modes, AI-powered creatives, Ektachrome 100 and a photo printing seminar.

  • In Creativity in the Age of Machines: How AI-Powered Creatives Will Enable a More Beautiful World, Gavin Miller, Adobe Research vice-president and fellow, predicts "an explosion in the volume and quality of creative work." AI, he writes, will provide better content understanding, smart editing and multistep applications like SceneStitch and SkyReplace. "When everyone can attain a certain standard of visual quality, it will force those who are truly gifted to set a new standard of creativity and originality," he writes.
  • Kodak has released a video showing a few Ektachrome 100 test photos. We can wait.
  • On Friday, June 8, printer manufacturer DNP and Scott Proposki, founder and CEO of Photos In A Minute, will co-host a free three-hour photo printing seminar at the B&H Photo Video store in New York City. Following Proposki's presentation, DNP's Todd Charney will demonstrate the company's DS620A, DS820A, DS-RX1HS and SL620A dye-sublimation printers. A Q&A will follow and attendees are encouraged to bring a USB flash drive to print their own photo samples at no charge.

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