  • I agree with Richard and Penguin that you are overestimating the market. People liking photos is not an indicator of a desire to buy prints. I'm the staff photographer for a non-profit arts ...
  • Lightroom CC requires an internet connection for a few reasons that have nothing to do with syncing files. First is to check your account to make sure your subscription is up to date. If the ...
  • Compare the free trials of LR and Corel's Aftershot Pro 2 and make up your own mind. That usually works better than asking other people who end up thinking they are supposed to make the decision ...
  • Comparative processing times on my older PC (decent vidcard, but 64 bit CPU is 5 years old, dual core, and 8GB of RAM) are a delight. These are all .ORF files involved, 13MB average file size. Disp ...
  • I use some plug ins which in the past have not played well with LR. Haven't tried them out with the new version yet. I also have some PS Actions which can't be duplicated in LR, so for now I find ...
  • The main thing for me is that it's considerably faster and displaying and exporting images. I've been busy with some jobs so I haven't had a chance to experiment with some of the new features yet. -- ...
  • What some consider flat others consider more accurate. I think it has to do with the fact that some people got their start with point and shoots or entry level dslrs which have .jpeg engines that ...
  • Personally I find the Capture 1 skin tones to be too ruddy. Shadows are also blocked up. At least this is the case on my monitor using Google Chrome. It's actually worse on Internet Explorer.
  • You're assuming the majority of people here will actually give unbiased, qualified feedback. Most won't. The challenges are a joke. I used to moderate 2 differently themed challenges, as well as ...
  • The first review I read, the photographer said that on his PC LR6 was considerably faster than LR5, and that was the reason he upgraded. I've found a noticeable increase in speed a well.
  • LOL. That little drop down is found on a lot of sites. Corel is the same way. Probably far more people look for the drop down than you think.
  • Hide it? Not at all. Go to the Lightroom CC page, scroll to the bottom and a clearly visible graphic linked to Lightroom 6 standalone is right there.
  • I find that many people weigh in on this subject with little or no consideration for changes in technology. They voice opinions based on existing technology as though all camera designers are ever ...
  • Many people haven't even used a truly good OVF. They use ones using pentamirrors instead of pentapisms. The difference can be profound. Back in the film days even a low end camera like the K1000 ...
  • Perhaps it's all just a response to those innumerable threads denigrating mirrorless and those who have switched? It's all definitely a matter that a hefty percentage of camera enthusiasts have big ...
  • Is the level of insecurity or hubris people have about their choices of gear. Ad Nauseum arguments about something that is situational as though there is a blanket solution indicates the ignorance ...
  • LOL. VHS outsold Betamax by a much bigger margin, even though most serious videophiles at that time preferred Betamax. It's all in the marketing.
  • This can backfire if you're not careful. If a professional model is used, it should be made quite clear that is the case. Otherwise clients can develop the expectation that they will look just as ...
  • That depends on whether you "hate it" out of personal taste, or because it genuinely is a bad idea. Unless you are on the level of Richard Avedon or Helmut Newton et al (hired specifically because ...
  • Oh really? You do realize that digital is essentially 4 monochrome channels exposed through different color filters then combined into a full color image, right? Digital is designed to convert to ...
