Preset Brewery drag-and-drop tool converts Lightroom presets for Photoshop

by on Jan.26, 2018, under Reviews

An application for macOS 10.10+ called Preset Brewery makes it possible to convert Lightroom presets into Camera Raw presets for use in Photoshop by simply dragging and dropping them—it really doesn’t get any simpler than that.

Preset Brewery was recently updated to version 1.1, which adds support for exporting the presets directly into Camera Raw so that they’re immediately available; however, the option remains to save the converted presets into the folder where the Lightroom presets are located.

Preset Brewery was created by developer Adam Bardon, who tells Fstoppers that a future update will add support for batch processing presets. Unfortunately, the application is not available for Windows, but Mac users can purchase Preset Brewery through the company’s website for $7.90 USD.

Samsung promises to 'reimagine the camera' on the Galaxy S9

by on Jan.25, 2018, under Reviews

We’ve been expecting the upcoming Samsung flagship smartphone Galaxy S9 to be launched at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona (the last week of February) for a while now, but today the Korean manufacturer has made things official by sending out invitations to the launch event.

The event will take place on the 25th of February, the press day before the official start of MWC, and mobile photographers should be particularly excited. That’s because, according to the invite, this phone is all about “The camera. Reimagined.” There have been rumors about variable apertures and super-slow-motion video, and it seems like there’s a good chance at least the larger Galaxy S9+ will come with a dual-camera setup, similar to the Note 8.

As usual, there’s no way of knowing what exactly to expect, but we’ll keep an eye on the rumor mill, and we’ll definitely be in Barcelona to report from the show as well. If you can’t be there, no worries—Samsung is planning to livestream the ‘Samsung Unpacked’ event.

Film crew arrested for allegedly trying to sneak a 'fake bomb' through airport security

by on Jan.24, 2018, under Reviews

A Dutch television film crew was arrested last Thursday at the Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey after attempting to take what is being called a ‘fake bomb’ through security. The alleged fake bomb was composed of a PVC pipe, wires, and a motor, according to law enforcement sources speaking to ABC News, though the crew’s production house claims it was actually ‘vacuum compression luggage.’

The arrests involved nine cast and crew members working on an upcoming series called “Staten Island Hustle” for Endemol Shine North America and Left Hook Media, according to a statement released by Endemol Shine.

In a statement given to NJ Advance Media, the company said the device wasn’t a fake bomb, but rather a prototype for vacuum luggage able to accommodate a larger number of items than ordinary luggage:

Unfortunately, there appears to have been a misunderstanding, and we regret any inconvenience to TSA and other authorities on the ground for complications that may have been caused.

However, TSA officials allege that the crew attempted to sneak the contraption past security officials while secretly recording the incident for a TV episode, and that the vacuum luggage system had all the indicators of being an IED. According to, all nine individuals have been charged with conspiracy, creating a false public alarm, and interference with transportation.
