Tim and Renee chat about a "quadcopter" drone crashing onto the lawn at the White House in Washington, D.C., and how that might impact photographers who want to use drones for aerial photography. They then address questions from photographers about calibrating digital projectors, the impact of ISO on exposure and image quality, file size and resolution, extending canvas size in Photoshop, and the resolution to use for digital sharing.

They then address questions from photographers about whether it makes sense to convert RAW captures to the Adobe DNG format, using Lens Correction adjustments in Lightroom, publishing photos to Facebook from Lightroom, batch processing high dynamic range (HDR) image sets, and noise in the context of ISO setting.

Tim and Renee chat about licensing of music, including a rant by Tim about photographers who complain about the risk of people stealing their photos but who steal music for use in slideshows and other uses. They then address questions from photographers about dye sublimation printers, the pixel grid in Photoshop, whether to remove cards from a camera for downloading photos, filtering photos in Lightroom based on the absence of keywords, and sharpening settings that seem to enable working in units smaller than the individual pixel.

They then address questions from photographers about a workflow for preparing black and white versions of color photographs, converting a folder full of images to a different file format, the term "density" in the context of photography, how formatting a memory card impacts the life of the card, and recovering photos from a card that has been formatted already.
