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 Charles Traub, WWI centenary, Istanbul, Photopea, a Matrix Cam, the iPad Pro for photographers and a poll about infringement.

  • In Random Moments, Petty Lies and Quiet Pleasures, Rena Silverman reviews the "taradiddles" of Charles Traub. Taradiddle, "a collection of trifles that in Traub's hands become matters of remarkable social commentary," will be released on Nov. 20.
  • Preparing for the Centenary of the End of World War I presents 28 images curated by Alan Taylor commemorating the war to end all wars that ended in France. "Earlier this month, Emmanuel Macron, the president of France, inaugurated a series of commemorations of the centenary, combining messages of remembrance with warnings about the recent growth of nationalism in the world," he writes.
  • Jason Kottke shares Some Reflections From My Short Trip to Istanbul and a few gorgeous images, too.
  • Photopea is a "free online tool for editing raster and vector graphics with support for PSD, XCF and Sketch files." Among the other file formats supported are DNG, JPG, TIFF, GIF and PNG. Bug reports and general discussion are hosted on the project's GitHub page. We opened a DNG file and a very rudimentary Raw editor popped up:
  • Charles Purdy showcases a few Photos Frozen in Time shot with a Matrix Cam that included 24 cameras for the photo booth at Adobe MAX. Oh, and there's one cute video of a marriage proposal.
  • In The New iPad Pro for Photographers, Austin Mann concludes, "As a photographer you will find the new iPad Pro super useful in day-to-day activities, but as you come to understand the strengths of this tool, I think you'll find yourself turning to it frequently as you look for fresh ways to express your artistic vision and create your best work."
  • Carolyn Wright has posted a poll asking What Are You Now Doing About Infringement of Your Photos? And you can view the results to see which of the eight approaches are the most popular.

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