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 macaws, an old family photo, infrastructure, camera bags, WebP files and LinkedIn.

  • In 'Seconds Later, the Macaws Were Gone', Grace Holliday talks to Isabela Eseverri about her best smartphoto photo. ""I had seconds to set up my shot, so you could see the whole of Avila mountain in the background and the city below, rather than zooming right in on the palm tree," she says.
  • Girls Aloud's Nicola Roberts and her sister Frankie recreate An Old Family Photo and talk friends and fame in a fun read with an amusing pair of photos (even the background characters appear in the recreation).
  • In remembering an early digital shoot with a Nikon 950 and all the peripherals that entailed, Kirk Tuck catalogs The Needed Infrastructure for his new Panasonic GH6. "Just making the point that all new leaps forward in camera tech are only the tip of the iceberg when I comes to burning money," he says. Some things never change.
  • Derrick Story lists Six Camera Bags (And No More!) as he prunes his "wall of bags" acquired as an ambassador for Lowepro and Think Tank Photo. A Tenba and a Tamrac snuck in there.
  • Work With WebP Files in Photoshop points out that Photoshop 23.2 adds full support for WebP files, the compact image format (not supported by Safari) devised by Google. It also includes a link to a plug-in for earlier versions of Photoshop, which of course should work for any image editor that supports Photoshop plug-ins. The storage savings of WebP over even optimized JPEGs are, we've seen in our own tests, significant.
  • We're having a bit of a problem* with our LinkedIn button at the right end of our headlines. The last few days the LinkedIn page doesn't respond and today it actually throws us back to our original page. So if you follow us with LinkedIn, you're missing a few stories. Our other feeds are working normally, however.

More to come! Meanwhile, here's a look back. And please support our efforts...
