This is something that I really wish more manufacturers would do. Pentax has released Software Development Kits (SDKs) for their range of DSLRs allowing programmers write apps to communicate with them for the desktop, iOS and Android devices. This would allow anybody to be able to make software to talk with Pentax DSLRs, and without any kind of hacks or reverse engineering.
A few weeks ago, we got excited about all the new features in Lightroom CC’s “massive update”. The loved the long-overdue upgrades such as more profiles, faster import, and a better user interface. But, and this is a big but (BUT even), it didn’t take long before the community started experiencing problems that left them quite upset. Today, the software company apologized for the quality hiccup, and better yet, released a bug fix update that resolves these issues.
If you share your photography online, you know that your images will be re-distributed and re-published without your permission.
If you are a professional photographer, or a photo enthusiast, you probably also realize that rampant online copyright infringement costs creative professionals a significant amount of lost revenue – every image that is published without a valid license is a lost sale for someone.
If you have always wanted to fight back against copyright infringement, or if you just want to see exactly who is using your photography where, one solution is to apply an invisible digital watermark to your photography.
In this article, we will review Signili, a new service that can add invisible watermarks (as hidden copyright information) to your photos, and then help track exactly where those photos are used online…
Artificial intelligence is developing fast and has many possible applications. However, it makes mistakes, and this has proven to be a problem for London’s Metropolitan Police. They use AI to detect incriminating images on seized electronic devices. But, it’s unreliable when it comes to nudity, as it still can’t tell the difference between a nude photo and a photo of a desert.
Colorizing a black and white image in Photoshop requires a huge amount of time, and not to mention that you need exceptional skill to do it. A year ago, Richard Zhang and a team at University of California revealed Algoritmia, an app that does it automatically. It was fun to play with it, but there was still plenty of room for improvement. Now, a year later, they have found a new approach. And this time, the results are way more impressive.
Today, however, we are happy to announce that version 12 has been released in beta (and I’m currently downloading it)!
Reducing the start-up time for all cameras, and brining XAVC-S recording to the a6000, the download links should become available shortly.
DaVinci Resolve has been renown for its color grading capabilities for while, and they made me one happy freeloader when they started offering a pared-down version of their software at no cost. But, one major thing DaVinci lacked was the total control of a non-lineal editor. Now, with the upcoming release of DaVinci Resolve 12, you get the best of both worlds.
Lightroom CC was announced just over a month ago, and Adobe is already offering a sneak peek of a yet-to-be-released feature that could become a landscape photographer’s best friend.
Adobe Evangelist Terry White walks viewers through the new dehaze slider, showing just how incredibly effective it is, but also how other photographers can use it for a dramatic effect.
Time to get out all the first-person footage you captured with your GoPro, but never touched, as Microsoft finally released its Hyperlapse technology.
Capable of turning standard lengthy videos into smooth and stabilized time lapses, you can expect to see a significant bump in time lapse videos in the near future.
The software is available in one form or another to Windows, Windows Azure, Windows Mobile and Android users.
Microsoft seems thrilled about the release; just don’t confuse it with Instagram’s Hyperlapse app.
