How to easily assess, cull, and organize photos in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom

Not all photos are perfect. It’s natural to have good ones and bad ones, especially in digital photography where you can take as many photos as you want with no guilt involving the cost of film and development. If you’re old enough to remember shooting in film, you probably tossed only the truly terrible shots. You then (likely) left the mediocre ones in the envelope you got from the photo lab, and you (probably) forgot about them. Only the best shots made their way out of the envelope and into a physical album.

QuarkXPress 2016 review: better previews than Adobe, import InDesign files, and more!

My husband Jay’s comprehensive review of QuarkXPress 2016 posted this morning at Macworld. Being able to convert InDesign, Illustrator, PDF, EPS, and Microsoft Office graphics into native QuarkXPress items could change the graphic design world forever. Amazingly, its screen display is far better than Adobe’s, and it can instantly convert any layout to an HTML5-based publication at no additional cost. Competition is good!
