by JamesNYCJuly 10. 2013 05:20

Remember LightZone software? For those who do not, LightZone was a photo-editing program that offered a number of groundbreaking features including full 16-bit, selective and  nondestructive RAW editing in a fairly user-friendly GUI. Released in 2005, it won awards from MacWorld, MacUser and American Photo magazine. LightZone was marketed and sold by Lightcrafts until September 2011, when that company closed for business. Beginning in October 2011, the LightZone software was kept alive and being supported, first by an informal e-mail tree and then, since November 2011, by the LightZombie Project users’ group,

Phase One Independence Day 4th of July SPECIAL - 48 hour 20% discount on Capture One Pro 7

by JamesNYCJuly 3. 2013 05:07

Sadly Phase One did not send this mass email until around 4:00AM EST on July 4 2013. Perhaps knowing full well that the vast majority of those that would take advantage of this offer would not be checking their emails until later in the week, long after the discount period would have expired.

This promo would have made more sense had they actually sent the email notice 3-4 days in advance of the promotional offer. This is fairly typical of how this get done in the world of photography.

Capture One Pro 7 will help you to do just that. In celebration of the US Independence Day on the 4th of July, we are offering a 48 hour long 20% discount on Capture One Pro 7.


DripBook Announces merger with WorkBook

by JamesNYCJuly 2. 2013 01:01

In a rather surprising turn of events Drip Book Announces merger with Work Book.

If you've been paying attention to the part of our industry that deals with source books and online photo portfolios over the last 10 years you'll note that Workbook was at one time one of the top 3 resources connecting photographers to art directors and art buyers. Then not long after we all started moving towards digital Workbook chose to lag behind the rest of the industry and in doing so New media companies such as DRIP BOOK came online offering a clean easy to use interface and a pricing model that Workbook and others could not compete with. Drip Book for the last 6 years or so has really been one of the premiere online resources for those in the photo industry to promote and host their online portfolios.

I can only assume that Drip Book was offered a huge amount of cash as an incentive to merge with Workbook. According to staff members workbook received a huge financial boot during the last year thanks in large part to Venture Capitol investors.

Workbook it appears is currently focusing on competing with Agency Access for their market share based on this and other ventures.

Posted on 2nd July 2013 by Alex Wright

Our ambition at Drip book has always been to put your creative portfolios in front of all the right people. So we’re thrilled to announce that Drip book is now part of Workbook, a creative heavyweight that will connect your portfolios to an exciting new audience.
