After 99U Creative Conference, Adobe has announced that its annual Adobe MAX conference will also become a free, online-only event. The reason is the same as it was for all previous changes and cancellations: the coronavirus pandemic.

After MWC, CP+ and several other trade shows and conferences, Adobe Summit 2020 is also being canceled due to the coronavirus concerns. However, the organizers have found the way to still host the event. Instead of taking place at The Venetian Resort Hotel Casino, this year’s Adobe Summit is going to become an online event.
Fujifilm is holding not one but two events in New York City this September. The first is the X Summit event on September 8th, where they’re expected to launch a new camera. Two days later, on September 10th, they’re hosting a free Fujikina “interactive festival” event for anybody interested in photography to come and celebrate the 10th anniversary of Fuji’s X-Mount system.
The X Summit event is likely to be the announcement of the long-awaited Fujifilm X-H2 mirrorless camera with the company’s shiny new 40-megapixel 5HR X-Trans CMOS sensor. We may also see some new lens announcements, too – or at least an update. It’s likely that if the Fuji X-H2 is announced during the X Summit event, they’ll have at least one or two on display during the Fujikina event a couple of days later.
Drone company DJI has recently confirmed that it is no longer shipping its products to either Russia or Ukraine, in a bid to stop the drones from being used as weapons.
The Chinese company will also withdraw support for existing drones meaning that Aeroscopes which help people find the location of a drone pilot, could expire.
We’ve featured many free online archives so far, including those of newspaper photos, historic images, and sound effects. And now there’s another database we want to share with you. It’s small in size for now, but it’s of utmost importance!
A Serbian photojournalist group has started this database to illustrate violence against women and do it properly. It contains photos that can help journalists, writers, and bloggers tell a story without re-traumatizing the victims with graphic illustrations.
This has been a saga that’s been building up for a couple of weeks now, beginning with accusations from Ukraine (via Blynk co-founder Bolodymyr Shymanskyy) that Russia is exploiting DJI’s AeroScope system in order to track drones within Ukraine in order to identify potential targets while blocking Ukraine from doing the same (or even tracking drones within their own airspace).
DJI’s US spokesperson, Adam Lisberg denied the claims and DJI Support responded via Twitter, stating that there are “malfunctions” with the AeroScope system within Ukraine. Fast forward to the present day and Germany’s largest electronics retailer, MediaMarkt, has now pulled all DJI drones from its website and shelves in Germany and the Netherlands as a result of what Pandaily calls “Security Concerns”.
Between the After Effects and Photoshop announcements and now this, it seems to have turned into Adobe day around here, but Adobe has now opened up registration for their annual Adobe Max event for 2021. Due to the global pandemic, the event is being held online again and registration is completely free.
Announced earlier in the year, the event is happening from October 26-28th. Amongst the speakers are YouTubers, filmmakers, video editors, photographers, graphic designers and a bunch of other creative artists we can absorb knowledge and inspiration from.
The Content Authenticity Initiative (CAI), launched in 2019 as a collaboration between Adobe, Twitter and the New York Times, looks like it might finally be making some visible progress. The initial goals to help provide authenticity in images shared online, particularly when it comes to social media, appear to be coming to some kind of early fruition.
Adobe has already shown some technology for preventing the manipulation of images. But a new article on the NYT R&D website shows how they’re fighting misinformation on social media where photographs are misused. For example, claiming that a photograph of a McDonald’s that burned down in a 2016 grease fire was something caused by rioters in 2020.
Every photographer needs to connect with clients. For the ones you know about, you can reach out directly, using emails, printed promos, or through social media (these are examples of active marketing). However, there are lots of clients out there that might be a great match for you, but you just don’t know about them. So you have to make it easy for them to find you. One way to do that is with a listing in a photographer directory (which is an example of passive marketing).
The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is back in the real world! After the 2020 pandemic extended well into the current year and made CES 2021 an online event, the next year’s CES is scheduled to become an in-person event again. In January next year, we’ll be able to meet up and have real hugs and handshakes at the world’s largest tech conference.
