Welcome to the final podcast of 2014!  In recent news, the world's most expensive photograph just sold for $6.5 million dollars.  It is a photo of a slot canyon photographed by fine arts photographer Peter Lik.  In other news, Adobe has acquired Fotolia and will offer it to it's Creative Cloud customers as well as a stand-alone service. Could JPG be replaced as an image standard?  Well, BPG is a new format that wants to be the next JPG.  It is a 14-bit  format that currently can only be read by a javascript encoder, but has a lot of advantages over the current JPG format.
