Story #2 - Instagram 6: It's like a real photo app - Don't get me wrong, I love Instagram. But let's be real, it was viewed as more of a toy than a real photo app. Well, Version 6 just might change all of that. Here's why.

Story #3 - The Nimbleosity Report: "Sailing Off to the British Isles." As of Wednesday, I'm hopping across the big pond to explore England, Ireland, Wales, and Scotland. I discuss what this trip entails, and how it might prove entertaining for you.

Story #4 - From the Screening Room - Enhancing a Black-and-White Wedding Photo with Lightroom with Jan Kabili. Weddings lend themselves to B&W photography, probably because of their timeless nature. Jan demonstrates some terrific Lightroom techniques to help you maximize this opportunity.

You can watch Jan in action by visiting the TDS Screening Room at lynda.com/thedigitalstory. While you're there, you can start your 7 day free trial to watch other design, photography, and computing titles, plus every other topic in the library (including my brand new "Photographing High School Senior Portraits."
