The Library of Congress Scrapped Plans for a 2017 Women’s March Mural, Fearing It Would Be Seen as Anti-Trump: Reports

The Post reports that the photograph was going to be included in the “Shall Not Be Denied: Women Fight for the Vote” exhibit that opened in June, but was replaced just five days before the exhibit opened with photos from the Women’s March in Houston instead.

Guess what? We go to libraries more often than movies.

Of all public cultural destinations, libraries are the most often visited. Libraries' expanded offerings make them more attractive than ever, especially to lower-income groups. Women are far more likely than men to visit a library. Amazingly, when it comes to getting up off our butts and engaging in cultural activities out in the world, Americans, by far, most frequently choose to go… to the library. Seriously. Twice as often as movies, more than sports or music, museums, or anything else, ac...

America’s largest public library ditches late fees

The Chicago Public Library found that a third of their economically disadvantaged members had been denied borrowing privileges due to overdue books. Overdue fines account for a tiny fraction of library funding, so the ramifications of ending them are more social than financial. Though 92% of U.S. libraries still charge late fees, the number is shrinking. None Whether we're out to quench a thirst for information or lose ourselves in story, checking out a book from a public library may start the...

New Depth Mask Finding Options in Lightroom Classic

One of the smaller new features that slipped into the latest version of Lightroom Classic is the ability to more easily find HEIC photos with embedded depth information using the Library Filter bar and smart collections.

The camera module within the Lightroom (mobile) app on iPhone can also create photos with depth maps once the Technolo...

Three Reasons Why I Don’t Organize My Photos By Date in Lightroom

After I shared the basics of my organizational workflow in Lightroom last Friday, I had a question in the comments section that I thought I might answer today. The question was: “I’m still old-fashioned – I use folders that have file name with the date and description of whatever I’m shooting. Do you ever have trouble finding anything? I think I’d go bonkers if I didn’t use a date system!” I don’t organize by date for three main reasons: I actually used to organize by date when I ...

How I Organize & Sort My Images in Lightroom

Hi, Gang. I’m back from my photography workshop China (what an incredible time we had), and while I was there, one thing I was asked about a lot by the student was basic organization. So, today I thought I’d go through the basics of how I organize my images in Lightroom when I’m traveling on the road. This simple organization scheme works for either Lightroom Classic or Lightroom (cloud version); it just that some of the names for the same things are different (don’t get me started), but I’l...

Free Arts Expositions in a 15th-Century Parisian Mansion

The 15th-century Hôtel de Sens is one of the few remaining examples of medieval civil architecture in Paris. It was originally built by a bishop, but its most illustrious resident was the first wife of Henri IV, Reine Margot de Valois. After the 1789 Revolution it was sold off and used to house different businesses over the years, which slowly degraded it until it was finally declared a historic monument in 1862 and became home to a library, the Bibliothèque Forney. It was purchased by the ...
