Lightroom Podcast #29: Adobe raw team + Jeff Schewe

"We didn’t get local tone and color correction and that’s something Bruce Fraser had wanted," says Jeff  Schewe in the latest Lightroom podcst, "so I’m going to get Mark in a noogie and not let him out until we get a commitment for 2.0." George Jardine writes,

This podcast was recorded on Friday March 16, 2007, at  the home of Ruth and Thomas Knoll in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Zalman Stern, Mark Hamburg, Michael Jonsson, Thomas Knoll and Jeff Schewe ramble all over the place, discussing the upcoming ACR 4.0, compatibility with XMP and Lightroom raw controls, noise reduction, sharpening, the non-destructive editing model, shooting in dusty environments, etc. The team also spends a bit of time discussing the ins-and-outs of the raw + JPEG workflow, and why Lightroom does not support it… yet.

The podcast is available as an MP3 file via George’s iDisk (under "20070316 Podcast – Raw Engineering + Jeff Schewe"). It’ll also be available via the Lightroom podcasts RSS feed, and by searching for "Lightroom" in iTunes.

Your eyeballs’ resolution, historic photos, & more

  • As traditional photo printing heads into obscurity, photo conservationist Dusan Stulik & his crew at the Getty Conservation Institute want to capture what’s being lost. They’re "working on what might be described as the genome project of predigital photography: a precise chemical fingerprint of all the 150 or so ways pictures have been developed" over the last 170 years.  19-century leather printing sounds cool, but as for the uranium prints, he can keep ’em.
  • Taking a different angle on photo preservation, Shorpy is "The 100-Year-Old Photo Blog." (It’s named after this little dude, apparently.) [Via]
  • I haven’t gotten to poke at it much, but Focus, The Photographic Search Engine, sounds interesting. [Via]
  • Your point-and-shoot has a little way to go before reaching the 576-megapixel resolution of the human eye [Via]
  • And lastly, speaking of resolution, who knew that Google satellite aerial photography could go so insanely close?  If I start balding, they’ll probably know before I do… [Via]
