Nothing more annoying than a video with no audio controls. Why?

On Adobe expands Photoshop and Lightroom offer article (628 comments in total)
In reply to:

SiriusDoggy: OK, I have a couple questions. Right now I have Photoshop CS5.5 and Lightroom 5. If I decide to go with this deal and then after a few months or the first year when they jack up the rates, will I be able to cancel and go back to my "old" version of the software?

If yes, will any PS files I made in PScc be able to be opened in PS5.5?

Can PS5.5 and PScc both be installed on the computer? And LR5.5 and LRcc?

Thanks for the response.
So a PSD file is not a PSD file? I mean right now I have PSD files that were edited on CS3 or CS4 that I can open and edit in CS5.5.
I realize that's going forward and not backwards, I just assumed it was a standard format that was interchangeable.
Anyone have a PScc file I can test to see it it will open in PSCS5.5?

SiriusDoggy: I had a Mavica FD-91. Recorded to floppy disc. If I remember correctly it would hold about 15-18 shots per disc at the "high-resolution" setting.

Yeah, unfortunately I haven't owned a computer with a floppy drive in about 5-7 years.....

SiriusDoggy: Serious astrophotographers have known about this tech for years. In the astronomy community it's called adaptive optics and works almost exactly the same. https://www.sbig.com/products/adaptive-optics/ao-8t/

Maybe you should look up the definition of Adaptive Optics. Whether the mirror is being deformed or there is a tip-tilt mirror in use and whatever the frequency happens to be, it's still considered Adaptive Optics.

photorick1974: Just read Ken Rockwell's little rant from the other day. He's a waste. That's the first time I've heard his name mentioned anywhere in a long time. I guess nobody goes to his site to "support" him anymore, so he had to open his mouth. I never cared much for his simplistic reviews about equipment. I also have a problem with him, as I am one of those supposedly "sitting around collecting a living" working in high end photo retail. Sorry, a part timer doesn't have my knowledge base or experience, that's why people come to me, and not Best Buy.

Sorry, had to rant. That guy just annoys me. And yes, I know I went off topic, but he did mention full-time employees and went off topic himself.

To the topic itself, I stopped read The Sun-Times along time ago anyway, always preferred The Tribune anyway, better writers. Hopefully those 28 will move on to bigger and better things.

Who's Ken Rockwell?

On New CompactFlash card to allow RAID-style 'mirroring' article (100 comments in total)
In reply to:

Shamael: One has to tell me first to what and to whom that will serve. If the card breaks, you throw the 2 partitions away. If one gets corrupted, the corrupted sector is mirrored, thus both will not work. If the card gets lost, both partitions are lost. So, is there anything we don't know here? I do not ask "that I know" since I think that we all ask the same question. On the other side, CF gets more and more replaced by SD, what is a bargain since you can fit 25 SD cards in a matchbox. Now, if they could make a CF body with 2 sd cards in slots, mirrored, that would make sense.

What makes you think that it writes to one side then mirrors to the other, therefore mirroring the corrupted side? Maybe it writes to both sides at the same time so "IF" one side does get corrupted, the other side will be fine. And as for your other examples, the "2SD card slots" version doesn't solve any of them either.

Peter K Burian: What is AMAZING is that Geographic allows anyone in the world to take a 1600x1200 pixel copy of many of the photos entered in the contest to use as they wish.

You can do so here
http://travel.nationalgeographic.com/travel/traveler-magazine/photo-contest/2013/entries/wallpaper/outdoor-scenes-week-4/

I do not see that being allowed in the Licenses they publish about the contest. http://travel.nationalgeographic.com/travel/traveler-magazine/photo-contest/2013/rules/

You "agree" to it when you enter the contest if you bothered to read the "rules". Not that I agree with it but that's why I don't enter my work in contest like this.

"License:
By entering the Contest, all entrants grant an irrevocable, perpetual, worldwide non-exclusive license to Authorized Parties, to reproduce, distribute, display and create derivative works of the entries (along with a name credit) in connection with the Contest and promotion of the Contest, in any media now or hereafter known, including, but not limited to: Display at a potential exhibition of winners; publication of a book featuring select entries in the Contest; publication in National Geographic Traveler magazine or online highlighting entries or winners of the Contest.

bodos: Now, not only black banners on the top and bottom of the image, they even put the caption over the picture. Why?
By the way it looks the same on mobile as before. Makes no sense.

If you follow the link to the video you will see the text is only over the image while it appears in the news feed. Once you click on an image to view it larger the text will disappear.

The only problem I see with this design is that a properly fitting backpack is supposed to rest more on your hips then your shoulders. With this design it seems as though ALL of the weight will need to be on your shoulders to allow the lower section to easily swivel around your waist.
For those that don't hike regularly you may not realize that but walk into an REI and get fitted properly and ask the employee, they'll tell you the same thing.

In reply to:

micahmedia: Why doesn't Adobe offer the option of upgrading just the ACR component for a fee? The new ACR engine looks bomb, but I don't really see anything else in PS:CS6 I want. And yes, I've tried the beta.

Such an option could be at an intermediate price between LR and a full PS upgrade. (although, since it would only be a small component of either, rightfully should be less than either)

This way, Adobe is always only working on the latest version and doesn't have to mess with confusion like this--I mean, you do realize that CS6 is shipping already, ya? Shouldn't compatibility with the latest gear there be priority?

...here they appear to have release a new version of PS and an upgrade for the old version that makes it more useful than the new.

On what planet does this make sense?

The ACR upgrade does not make it "MORE" useful then CS6. It makes it the same. CS6 comes with ACR7 that already has all of these cameras. So for now CS5 and CS6 are compatible with all of the same cameras but what they are saying is this is the last upgrade to ACR for CS5 so any new cameras from this point on and you will be S.O.L. Kinda sucks for some, not me though. I'll be upgrading to CS 7 or 8 before getting rid of my perfectly fine 5dMII.

It's not an App. It's just a mobile version of the site that formats better when you view the site on your mobile browser.

In reply to:

Armando J. Rodriguez, Jr.: It looks as though the 1D X is not part of the exhibit? Why??

Because this is the CONSUMER Electronics Show, that's why. The 1DX is not considered by Canon to be a consumer camera anymore than Canon considers the Rebel line to be Pro models.

The article seems to be one of those articles that's really just an advertisement to get you to go to his website.
