OK, Breaktime is over....

The last audio podcast I released was on May 9th ... I did not do one last week as I was catching up on other responsibilites.

So tomorrow I'll get back on track and release an episode, and I'll try to stay on track.

Video Podcasts not syncing to iPod

If you are subscribed via iTunes to the Allen Rockwell Digital Photography Podcast - Video Edition and you have an iPod you may have noticed that episode #3 and #4 would not sync to your iPod.

Thanks to my brother Thom, the video production geek from www.rockwellmultimedia.com for bringing this to my attention.

I had made a mistake in the formatting of the videos for episode 3 and 4 and I guess iTunes is smart enough to notice and refuse to send crap files to your iPod. I have since fixed this problem and uploaded the videos again.

The easiest way to fix this on your end is:

1. launch iTunes

2. Right click (or control click) on the "Allen Rockwell Digital Photography Podcast - Video Edition" title (not individual episodes) and select "Delete". Click on "Move Files To Trash"

3. Go here The new video podcast feed is at http://feeds.feedburner.com/videodigitalphotopodcast and click on the subscribe in iTunes button.

4. That's it, iTunes will get the updated episodes (all of them actaully) and you'll be all set to sync to your iPod.

Boinx releases PhotoMagico 2.1 Beta


What's new in FotoMagico 2.1b?

Peter has finally nailed down a couple of road blocks in the export process. FotoMagico 2.1 has a dramatically better export quality when using DV or H.264 exports while at the same time using much smaller file sizes.

FotoMagico 2.1 Pro will also let you adjust the color of an image conveniently and non-destructively. With this you can quickly make the color of images in a sequence better match each other.

Video Podcast #4

In video podcast #4 I show you how to take an image that might be destined for the bit bin and save it using the Levels command and some sharpening. The entire procedure takes a few seconds and can save a crummy image and bring it back to life.

Video Podcasts Have A New Home

iTunes001.jpgYou have probably noticed that I've recently produced a few video podcasts. I think the video podcasts are very useful for tutoruals and product reviews where simply speaking about the item and showing still photos is just not enough.

I also realize that there are many of you that listen to my podcasts while in the car, at work or when at the gym, etc and you can't really watch the screen of your iPod while doing these activities.

So, I've created a seperate feed for the video podcasts that you can subscribe to (or not) and watch them when you are at your computer, while traveling (not driving), while soaking in the tub ... whatever.

The new video podcast feed is at http://feeds.feedburner.com/videodigitalphotopodcast
