    The Bergmann photo was emailed to me by a bunch of my friends…but by the time I clicked through it looks like the page hit OVERLOAD. Please post an update if/when he moves it to another host, I’m dying to see it!

    Hello John.
    I have a suggestion regarding Photoshop.
    I now the under preferences there is an option to embed the processing info (The post processing steps made on the photo) into the JPEG file itself.
    I think you should add a check box whether to embed this data into the file or not on the “Save File” dialog box.
    That way people will actually use it.

    The one thing that drives me batty about your blog, which I otherwise love, is the fact your links don’t open in another window. Why is that? Not why does it drive me batty but why don’t your links open in another window? That way I can just close the new window or tab and come back to reading your column. It makes me not want to click away.
    [I hear ya, but if I were to change the link behavior, I’m sure I’d hear from other people then driven nuts. The good news is that browsers support keyboard shortcuts for opening links in new windows and/or tabs. On Safari I Cmd-click links to open them in new tabs, and Cmd-shift-click them to open them in background tabs. Firefox and (I think) IE support similar conventions. They’re well worth learning. –J.]

    Thanks for the tip, John. Cmd-shit-click works in Firefox.
    [Cool. I imagine you mean “Cmd-SHIFT-click,” but the typo made me smile and I couldn’t resist pointing it out. ;-) –J.]

    In the make your own 3D camera link they mention a viewing method where the right and left images are reversed and you cross your eyes to see the image in stereo. On an archaeological dig in Albania in 2007, a couple of us got really into taking stereo images. I found that Lightroom’s compare feature in library mode is perfect for quickly setting up this type of viewing. And for the better stereo-images, it was also very easy to create single image output using the print module with a 2-up preset or the web module with two columns.
    Lightroom is a pretty amazing piece of software…and that was 1.x we were using back then. 2.x is out of the ballpark.

    The funny thing in Bergmann’s is Bush. He’s seated directly behind Obama, and it really looks like he’s checking his email during the speech. Can anybody ID what’s in his hands?
