Camera Raw 8.1 and DNG Converter 8.1 Now Available from Adobe

Posted in

This update contains the Adobe DNG Converter 8.1.

The Adobe DNG Converter is a free utility that enables you to easily convert camera-specific raw files from more than 350 cameras to the more universal DNG raw format.

Digital Negative was developed to address the lack of an open standard for the proprietary and unique raw files created by each digital camera. DNG allows photographers to archive their raw camera files in a single format for easy cataloging and access in the future. With the format specification freely available, any developer can build software that supports and takes advantage of DNG. For more information, visit the Digital Negative page.

Instagram changes their Privacy policy as of 16 January 2013...

Either you love it, or you hate it... those Instagram photos that everyone shares with their friends and family... either way, Instagram is used by millions of people to share their images.

In September 2012, Facebook purchased Instagram for a record sum.... some people felt that this was a good move, since you could easily share your photos with anyone on Facebook. Others immediately deleted their accounts! 

The latest twist saw a notice of the change in the Privacy Policy as of 16 January 2013. Read up on the new policy here.
