If you’re anything like me and miss Good Eats, you’re going to love Cook Smart. 2 videos up so far and they’re in classic Alton Brown fashion.

Interesting to see the fall of the Canadian majority from nearly 95% to just over 50%.

Loom and Dropbox - an acquisition done right

The export of your Loom library has been completed! You can now access all your albums, photos and videos in your Dropbox. Look for the folder titled ‘Loom’. Or you can simply open your Carousel app!

We have also added 10GB of storage to your Dropbox to match the free storage you had on Loom. You will receive an additional 250GB of storage space on Carousel for 12 months, starting today! Thank you again for all your support and welcome to Dropbox!

For whatever reason, I shoot in RAW on my DSLR. Maybe it’s because I feel that I want to have the best quality image possible in the event I want to print photos. Maybe it’s because personal storage is so cheap. In any case… I needed to find a way to convert RAW images to JPG images without losing their EXIF data. Cue XnConvert.

I found this great little utility on the App Store… it is highly rated and for good reason. What it does is simple and effective.

Within minutes of opening the app, I was able to test convert a single image - preserving the EXIF and date data. This is huge.

I need to preserve this data because I have a workflow that is based on the date data. If I use Preview or Automator, it doesn’t preserve the date data… it’ll give the new file a date from when it was created, just then.

XnConvert does exactly what I needed.

This is huge for Dropbox and their journey to be a “home for life”. Loom was a good service, not quite Everpix good/seemless, but good. With Dropbox behind them and their ideas… this is going to be fun.

Let’s see what happens with Photo Stream and iCloud…

Betting this is just the first of many that will implement this. Granted, it’s basically a shortcut — but a shortcut that is welcomed.

I’m over due for a viewing of the film.
