Google has really outdone itself by adding Stacks to the Snapseed photo editing app. Stacks allow you to nondestructively edit a photo, and later go back and change, delete, or insert an edit--kind of like layers for edits. Find out how Snapseed Stacks work in the latest episode of my series http://www.lynda.com/phototoolsweekly

- Hi, I'm Jan Kabili. Welcome to Photo Tools Weekly. In this episode, we're going to talk about how to resize your Lightroom photos. Right up front, I'll remind you that you can't change the actual size of your original photos through Lightroom, because that would be destructive editing, and Lightroom is all about being non-destructive of your originals. But what you can do is to change the size of copies of photos that you export from Lightroom...

Do you love black and white photography as much as I do? Then you'll love this new episode of TWiP TheFIX, in which I talk with Scottish photographer +John G Moore  about how he captures and processes his fine-art black and white landscapes and in-demand portraits of music biz luminaries. Thanks to +Glyn Dewis for introducing me to to this exciting photographer, whose work has been likened to Ansel Adams'.

Jax has the best seafood in Boulder and has for years. It's tough to get a table on weekends, but locals love to pop in during the week and sit at the u-shaped bar or one of the two prized tables in front of Jax, where you can see the Boulder scene close up. The service is great; waiters tend to stay there for years. Do not miss the calamari appetizer. The catfish po'boy is a good deal. Some entrees are relatively pricey, but the consistent quality makes the price worthwhile. One downside - acoustics aren't good, so it can be hard to have an intimate conversation in the small dining room.
