Canon has reportedly been hit by a devastating ransomware attack. In addition to knocking a long list of Canon websites offline, the attack is said to have resulted in a whopping 10 terabytes of data being stolen from Canon servers.
BleepingComputer reports that the ransomware group called Maze has claimed responsibility for successfully attacking Canon and impacting a wide range of services at the company, including email, team collaboration software, its USA websites, and internal applications.
Canon reportedly sent out a company-wide alert this morning to inform employees of “wide spread system issues affecting multiple applications[.] Teams, Email, and

Not so long ago I wrote a post about Excire Search, a plugin for Lightroom Classic, which allows you to quickly search for faces, people, landmarks and more within your entire Lightroom catalog. But what if you don’t use Lightroom? Well, the people over at Excire have been working on a stand-alone version — Excire […]

Originally announced last October during Adobe MAX 2019, the Content Authenticity Initiative (CAI) is an effort by Adobe, the New York Times and Twitter to develop a content attribution solution. The goal “is to increase transparency online by giving digital media artists and creators a tool to claim authorship and empowering consumers to access what […]

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.

No matter how good digital cameras get, there’s always a group that loves the style and familiarity of how film photography looks. Now, Capture One launches their latest style pack to emulate those old rolls of film.
Capture One has jumped into the preset game with the release of the Beyond Collection: two new ‘style packs’ that allow you to apply “the feel and character” of various film and black & white “looks” to your photography, with some customization options throw in for good measure.
The style packs aren’t technically “presets,” hence the name Beyond. What sets them apart is the fact that each “style” comes with 3 options for contrast and 8 options for “authentic film grain” so that you can further tailor the look of each style to the photo you’re editing. Furthermore, each
Moments ago, Ted Forbes over at The Art of Photography uploaded a video that you probably saw coming: a deep-dive on the brand new menu system that Sony debuted with the Sony a7S III. If you’re wondering how the menus have changed, and what Sony did (and didn’t) address, this is a great resource.
Putting so much emphasis on a UX redesign might seem silly, but the dated and confusing menu system on all of the Sony a7 and a9 cameras so far has been a huge source of frustration for users and bad PR for Sony. Even after all
I saw that Excire Search would help find images, but it is an Lightroom Classic-based plugin. At that point I didn’t give it much thought, as I am an Adobe Bridge, Camera Raw and Photoshop user. I put away any ideas of using this tagging and visual search software, until I was asked to take […]

If you’re new to photo printing, the most recent video from Sid at StyleMyPic should be required watching. In it, he covers what it means for a color in Photoshop to be “out of gamut,” and how to use Photoshop’s Proof Colors and Gamut Warning views to get your prints looking just right.
As any experienced photographer will tell you, the brightest and most saturated colors available to you on a monitor are considered “out of gamut” for the standard CMYK color space used for printing; in other words: the printer can’t create those colors and trying to print them
I recently wrote a post about the fun you can have playing with Plotaverse software, but there is a serious side as well. In addition to the fun, you can create some really cool, but effective commercial product shoots. Everything is moving to a video platform these days, as it is often much simpler to […]
Real estate brings its very own set of challenges to making photos to sell a property. Once the photos are captured, another challenge is making the picture look its best without having to have shot brackets for high dynamic range or doing grand and time-consuming work in Photoshop.
