We've just archived Volume 11, Number 6 of Photo Corners on the Archive page with 14 Features, 21 commented News stories, 27 Editor's Notes (which included 170 items of interest), one review and one site note for a total of 64 stories.

Of those 27 stories included 123 images and five included gear specification tables. We celebrated one holiday and published one obituary.

Last June, we published 72 stories, 18 of which were News stories. We published 22 Features then, including three obits and a fifth matinee as well as four more Features than this year.

So it's good to see the News section rebound a bit.

READERSHIP numbers were incomplete Thursday afternoon as we compiled this report but already showed a 115 percent jump in Unique Visitors.

Despite publishing just 64 stories, our Bytes Transferred increased over last month, too.

THE TOP TEN STORIES were almost all Around The Horn columns. Breaking in at fifth spot was our coverage of Adobe Creative Cloud updates and in sixth was our review of Nik Collection 5.

But, as always, what strikes us about these counts is that two-thirds of the stories get about the same level of interest and the other third are the latest stories we've published.

Which implies that you come by when you have some time to dig into what we've published rather than skim the headlines as soon as we've put something up.

And a couple of pieces were worth making a good cup of coffee for.

Installing ImageMagick With PerlMagick detailed our installation of this free package that can be run from the command line or harnessed in a script. The problem with packages like this is their dependencies. Updating those at the same time can break other things. But we show you how to manage a working installation that can be updated.

And we had a couple of photo contests whose winners were worth a few minutes of our time. The BigPicture Award Winners from the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco was one of them. And the other was the National Council on Aging Photo Contest Winners. Both contests look for images that go beyond being a pretty picture.

LOOKING AHEAD, we have a few reviews coming up. Or, to put it another way, sitting here waiting to get their test drive and write up.

So stay tuned.
