We should rather see LR6 (at least beta) than acr update.Dont You think?
Split screen zoom is something that can be usefull with t/s lenses.Believe me or not, but I've sent suggestion about such feature to Nikon some time ago :)
Why DPR don't inform about major improvements of other RAW processors, and inform about every single add-on to the LR/ACR? I did't noticed here that C1P7 added a huge amount of new lens profiles to their program...
nycgazelle: Jesus Christ People! I can't believe all the stupid complainers about this. 9.99 is two cups of coffee a month. Life is expensive...THIS most certainly isn't. I like it because for the first time in years..I did buy photoshop at full pop once...I can have current versions and not pirate it. I feel great about giving Adobe 10 bucks a month because its an amount I don't even think about when it auto deducts. This prevents everyone who couldn't plop down X amount of dollars at once for the software to pay a modest fee and feel good about themselves and enjoy a tremendously awesome product.
Max, You own the right to use the software (in classical form of licensing) for as long as You wish. You can also transfer this right to other people (sell this right). This is not what you can do with rental.
Dorkington: I've had both the photographer bundle and the full bundle since they launched this initiative, and frankly I've been very pleased. It's a fairly cheap price (especially the photographer bundle) for applications that I use to pay my bills. The updates are often times incredibly helpful, especially some of the stuff for Illustrator and InDesign.
I have to wonder if some of those complaining would be pleased with Elements. I don't say this as an insult... Elements has a pretty comprehensive set of features these days, and it's cheap to boot.
Barry, You probably know little about many professionals. Most pros are seeking for the way of work that delivers good results. They are not seeking for a buzz and whistle features. Also, most of them are too busy to implement new toys into their work flow. Finally, like in old silver-halide days, many pros does not edit their images deeply. It is task of photo editors. Main task of pro photographer is to deliver the best possible raw image. Tinkering with images is the domain of the amateurs and some artists.P's cc is the same like top-pro imaging equipment. If one spends his money into it, he feels like a pro, and being a pro photographer works on some people like a kind of magic - with hope of more interesting live in nicer place, being surrounded by beautiful women.
Imo these new features are maybe worth 9.99 - but total, not per month... Or little more.But this whole buzz reveals, that concept of improvements of ps. ended with cs3.All PS subscribers pay for improvements of premiere, illustrator or indesign, and their commercial cloud, rather than improvements of PS itself.
tabloid: Will it be available as a app/plug for photoshop (CS6).
The better question is: will photoshop/lr bundle users get the new PS or will they stuck in cc version 1?
Gosman: It is so nice to have Photoshop CC. So many improvements! You Sixers out there will soon be left behind!
Yup.And CCers would not even bother to pick the camera to get a new photos.
Henry M. Hertz: another quasi-beta feature like "deblur"?
deblur (shake reduction) works fine on some images. but overall the hype around it was .. well.... hype and nothing more.
Wait, wait.Your jaw will drop, when You will see this applied to 3D printout :)
Just a Photographer: For those ons CS6 - Enjoy while you can.
18th of June will be the day you will get your last ACR update.After that you will be left alone, or you can hop on the CC bandwagon.
On that day the all 'new' CC Photoshop will be released according to Adobe: https://creativecloud.adobeevents.com/ccnext/?sdid=KLUAV
Ps.Beware of using this Beta - It might tie you to CC if its not going to be released for those on CS6.
Not a problem for me.Last time I've developed something with acr/lr was about a year ago. I did not missed it even for a single second.Can't wait to replace PS with other piece of software.
Hehe, Adobe should add this computer to their cc offer. Just like telecom companies does with phones.
kbel: well i was not affected and could work normally in lightroom 5 and ps cc, i cannot understand all that negative critiques against adobe about the cloud model i think for independent photographer likes i am is ok to rent the software and anyway for professionals there is no alternative and to stay with ps6 forever will not be a good decision.
the only thing i am not happy about adobe ist that you can only pay with credit card, i had a problem with my payment last month and there is no alternative that should be alternatives for instances to pay by wirement or at least not to get blocked if once a problem about the credit card occcurs my account was cancelled so i had to redo a new subscriötion but had a good point they offered me now again 1 year for the special price .......
So You probably already know, that there are moments in the live of independent photographer (and not only photographer), when 10 dollars per month is quite a big amount of money.
Lord Sloth: CC vs' the CS model:pay for software or pay for the privilege of using software, I know where my money would be going.
But if Adobe are going for the dumb terminal and use our servers for the number crunching,, then happy days!!!!!The cost of upgrading my PC Vs' paying for off site processor power, no brainier!!!I wish Kolor Autopano Giga would offer me this.
To be clear - I don't need cc for sure, with bazillion products I will never use. Cs6 is enough, also because I don't like overcooked images and perspective of live long payments.BTW, imagine that all people realize that they don't need most things around them... For global economy it would be the last day, worse than thermonuclear war...It is also unusual in the world of business, that Adobe doesn't need my money - whatever is the reason of my will to pay them.
One of my activities is learning. And I'm trying to convince my students to avoid buying software, and rather involve into free options. And I teach not only photography...
As to Internet - I don' think, that infrastructure in place where I live is inferior to the infrastructure in most evolved places. I've friends around the world, and from what I know, better and cheaper solutions are in far East... But as almost anything on this world - it can fail here, and almost anywhere. Just like Adobe servers did.
Hehe, I've already forgotten LR shortcuts. I put quite lot of effort to learn them, but no way, I won't go back to LR. I won't take a part (financially) in developing CC and full server-side processing.And PS... I'm angry, that CS6 has different interface than CS5. I've to change my habits, knowing that there won't be any new versions for me.
Walter, I'm still user of large format camera. Also, I've developed myself tons of films. I always carried more than one camera - just in case. Always exposed more than one film - just in case. Never developed everything in a one batch - just in case. I know quite a lot about it. As a result - my equipment never failed in 100%, and I was never late with my job.But with the advent of digital photographers are working on even creasier time constrains. And in the toolchain there are two elements, that can fail, and cannot be doubled - internet connection and Adobe servers. I bet this is less reliable than my two-film two-camera setup.But I'm lucky, I'm almost out of the business now. I earn money elsewhere, and do with my photography what I really like, and can afford equipment I like. But I won't spend single penny on CC, that is for sure.
Question is: what price of cc will be, if one have to pay for the computing power and privilege to use software? Next, how much one have to pay for the bandwidth of Internet access to use cc? Finally, reliability of all means (cc servers, internet connection) makes me worry even more.
Adobe thought that they have cure for Murphy's law... I'd be layer saying that I'm sorry for them. They did everything to make it happened.I don't know what is the problem with Adobe, but considering the fault of authentication servers we can do some math:- Adobe have 1.8M users.-Their software contacts authentication server every 90 days (AFAIR),- Each day gives 1/90-th of total users that are unable to continue their job (it means 20000 users per day).If I'm right, Your PS CC can fail anyday soon...In good old model of software distribution it was up to the user to assure reliability - on my own I have more than one PC, so even severe damages can't hurt me very much.But when such stuff as CC fails - all users are endangered. So I took my decision: NO CC-like licensing model.
I hope it will allow the use of Nik and OnOne filters soon.Not tried it myself (yet), but it seems to be fine app - if with these features will remain free.
Well, there is a good reason, why in Bayer pattern there are 2x more green filters than red or blue. The green portion of light spectrum delivers us most information about details. I'm curious how it will be with blue having highest resolution...
