The Fotobug guys also discuss the Stefanie Gordon space shuttle image shot with her iPhone that has raised copyright questions, Twitpics and other services (Facebook?) retain the right to sell and distribute photos uploaded to their services, the new Sigma SD1 has been revealed, Drobo is giving away 100 Drobo backup units, Datacolor has introduced an app that allows the iPad and iPad2 to be color corrected, Nikon is suing Sigma for patent infringement, and Hasselblad has introduced a camera that effectively produces a 200MP image!
Listener Ted sent in a question as to how to curve text around an object in Photoshop and Jim demonstrates how easy it is!
