Academy and Emmy Award-winning software developer Boris FX is dipping its toes in the world of still photography with “Optics”: a new standalone application and plugin suite that brings some of the company’s feature film visual effects to the world of photo editing.

Optics is described as “the definitive digital toolbox for photos,” but what it offers is maybe better described as a comprehensive mishmash of filters, presets, lighting effects and lens flares… with some masking technology thrown in for good measure. It’s honestly hard to tell what Optics is primarily meant to do, because it does so much.

Adobe Adds ‘Refine Edge’ Brush to Photoshop on the iPad

But that really just means the interface has been tweaked. The technology under the hood is the exact same as the Desktop version, and should work just as well (or not well) on any given

According to the cyber security site ThreatPost, yesterday’s Creative Cloud updates weren’t just bug fixes, and Adobe’s update log description as “Security Updates” doesn’t tell the full story.

In fact, it seems that Mat Powell, a researcher with Trend Micro’s Zero Day Initiative, found a total of 12 Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVEs) across Adobe Photoshop, Adobe
