Tim and Renee chat about a patent issued to Amazon for a photographic technique involving capturing a subject against a white background, leading perhaps to more questions than answers.

This includes questions about batch processing HDR images for a panorama, keeping file sizes reasonable in Photoshop, a possible myth about bit depth, whether Lightroom Mobile includes the Spot Removal Tool, and the pros and cons of using a lower resolution RAW capture if offered by your camera.
