Camera Raw Version Control

Author/photographer Ben Long has created Camera Raw Version Control, a “simple package of droplets and Automator actions [that] let you easily create and manage multiple versions of your raw images.” Since ACR edits are stored as tiny, easily portable XMP files, this method lets you create versions with almost no hit to your disk space.
Ben has been busy elsewhere as well, updating his Photoshop Automator Actions to v2.2 (offering full compatibility with Intel-based Macs as well as 2 new actions) and producing an excellent Digital Camera Buying Guide for CreativePro.com:

  • Part 1: Budget, SLR vs. point-and-shoot, and resolution
  • Part 2: Exposure controls (program modes, shutter speed, aperture, white balance, and ISO)
  • Part 3: Light meters, lenses, image stabilization, autofocus, and flash.

Lo-Fi: How to create a pixel portrait; tracing photos

  • Craig Robinson has posted a tutorial covering how to use Photoshop for pixel portraiture. He uses techniques to give himself hairstyles from Lennon to Bono. [Via] By the way, if you like this kind of pixel art and have somehow missed the work of eBoy, check ’em out.
  • Greg from TheManWhoFellAsleep has devised an interesting approach to tracing photos, creating a kind of hybrid 2D/3D look (reminds me a little of stencil art). “Yeah, I know,” he writes, “Anyone can trace a drawing. But so what? I am doing it, and you’re not.” Well, okay then. Actually, I love the candor. Art museums wouldn’t drive me half as crazy if many artists said, “See this totally arbitrary thing I’m doing here? I just happened to think of it first, and now I’m a ‘genius’ with a permanent income stream. Sucks to be you.” [Via]
