Canon Irista
From Canon UK:
 
irista from Canon – where every image lives
 
United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, 5 June 2014 – Canon today reveals irista – an advanced, cloud-based image management platform that allows users to access, enjoy and manage their photo libraries like never before.
 
People today take thousands of digital photographs which have become scattered across multiple devices, irista is built to help curate entire image libraries in one central location. Previously known in beta-form as Project1709, irista makes it easy to find any picture or any memory – regardless of which device it was shot on.
 
irista has been created around four consumer needs:

  • Simple to use: Making it quick and easy to find any image in a photo collection
  • Connected: Share images directly on Facebook® and Flickr and keep track of likes and comments
  • Inspired: A single place for people to interact with their images, enhance their photography skills and get the most out of their pictures
  • Puts everybody in control: All images stored securely in one location so they can be accessed anytime, anywhere

Built using Canon’s unrivalled heritage and imaging expertise, irista has been designed for anybody looking to manage their memories. The unrivalled user experience, coupled with its design, puts people back in control of their image collections.
 
The service supports a wide range of file types, has no file size limitations and automatically uploads new additions to image collections. A sleek user-interface is supported by a powerful search index, which allows people to locate an image based on a wide range of criteria. The clean, tiled design features a customisable timeline ribbon and tag-based filtering options that make it easier to find shots using dates, location, custom user tags, lens type and much more. Social integration with Facebook® and Flickr also allows users to publish images on both platforms, as well as track social comments, directly from the irista interface.
 
“People are taking more photos on more devices than ever before, but it can be difficult to enjoy your images when they’re stored in different places,” said Alessandro Stanzani, Head of Consumer Imaging Group, Canon Europe. “With irista, we’ve created a platform that solves that problem. It’s currently the only service of its type and is built entirely around the needs of the user – reflecting a lot of the feedback received during the beta phase. It’s an invaluable resource for those who love their images, and will only get better as we add more and more features over time.”
 
irista is available to everyone, with tiered storage options to suit a range of different needs. The ‘entry’ tier offers 10GB of cloud storage space completely free-of-charge. It offers casual or hobbyist photographers full use and functionality of the irista platform, providing them with an ideal place to manage libraries or specific photography projects. Advanced enthusiasts or professional users, who require larger capacities, can also choose from two further storage options, with 50GB and 100GB tiers available for a monthly or annual cost.
 
irista subscription tiers are as follows:

  • Up to 10GB: No cost, full functionality
  • Up to 50GB: £4.49/€4.99 per month, or £45.00/€49.00 per year
  • Up to 100GB: £9.99/€10.99 per month, or £99.00/€109.00 per year

The full irista service is now live. People can sign up by visiting: www.irista.com

From Adobe:Welcome to the Adobe Photoshop Camera Raw 8.5 plug-in release candidate on Adobe Labs.

The Camera Raw team would like the community to help verify the quality of the plug-in through normal usage as this will ensure that the plug-in is tested on a diversity of hardware and software configurations not available internally at Adobe. If you do experience an issue with this release candidate please report it within the Camera Raw discussion forum.
 
Adobe Camera Raw 8.5 RC for CC
 
Features
 
Modify Graduated and Radial Filter masks with a brush:

  • After adding or selecting a Graduated or Radial Filter instance, click the new 'Brush' mode (next to existing 'New' and 'Edit' mode buttons) to reveal brush controls that allow you to modify the selected mask.
  • Use the 'Brush +' and 'Brush -' icon buttons in the brush controls pane to add to or erase from the selected mask.
  • Press the 'Clear' button to remove all brush modifications from the currently selected mask.
  • When a Graduated or Radial Filter instance is selected, Shift-K can be used to enter and leave brush modification mode.

Mask visualization is now available for the Graduated and Radial Filters. Use the Mask checkbox at the bottom of the Local Corrections pane or press 'Y' to toggle the mask overlay.
 
Added new Per-Panel Preview default toggle

  • If the current panel's settings are not the ACR defaults, clicking the new Per-panel Toggle Button will reset the panel to the ACR defaults.
  • Clicking the button again will restore the previous settings.
  • This is a standalone feature, separate from the new Preview controls
  • The changes are applied to the main view; if you have both the Before and After panes visible, changes will appear in the After pane.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed issue with Fujifilm X-T1 raw images appearing too bright at high ISO settings when using Dynamic Range 200% and 400%. Unfortunately, this fix may affect the appearance of existing images captured with this combination of settings. It is recommended that you (1) purge the Camera Raw cache via the Camera Raw Preferences dialog, and (2) review images shot at ISO settings higher than 1600 for unexpected brightness changes.
  • Fixed image quality issue (noisy result) when applying spot healing to floating-point (HDR) images.
  • Fixed issue with reading lossless compressed Nikon raw files (NEF files) from the camera models listed below. Previously, some images could be read but would appear as random noise, whereas attempting to open others would result in an error dialog. You will need to purge your Camera Raw cache via the Camera Raw Preferences dialog.
