Scott Vail's recent activity

  • A quick play for Memorial Day. Scott
  • Extractions have always been a challenge of mine.  This was done well, in my opinion.  Refine Edge isn't always exacting.  I play with this by narrowing the selection criteria, ants crawling ...
  • "Rent-a-Partner"...?  It may be better than the preverbal perpetual license agreement. You may be on to something,
  • I agree, $120/year for the short term has been my solution as well.  Adobe - Ps, has met my expectations in every way.  Falling short of $12/month in a never ending lifelong commitment. Scott
  • 3) An alternative to a company that turned to a subscription pricing model in order to maintain an increasing revenue, lacking a return on investment from an end-user perspective. There's no doubt ...
  • Commented on photo Rocky Mountain Ram in the It Looks So Close - 200mm or Greater challenge

    Appreciate that, even before the challenge results.

  • A subscription and a perpetual license are vastly different.  The monthly subscription isn't voluntary in the event one wishes to continue using the software.  My mistake was skipping the CS5.5 ...
  • Replied in Affinity Photo
    Creature of habit, I might be.  I'd become accustomed to making a selection and dragging  with the move tool, to another window opened in Ps.  Separated Mode is the only means of having two ...
  • I don't know why as my previous post behaved badly as well..  Copy the link, paste it into your browser, and remove the "." at the end.
  • Try this: The OP placed a "." at the end of the link in the original post.
  • Commented on photo CloudGate Chicago in the Chrome challenge

    Nicely done and well deserved.

  • Stock price is driven by revenue.  Obviously, the CC subscription model has been a good move for the Adobe corporation with quarterly and annual earnings reports.  I won't argue that.  The CC ...
  • I was speaking out of frustration.  Going back about a year and a half, and looking for an alternative to a costly upgrade to CS6, I trailed a couple of possible solutions.  Neither, in my ...
  • Replied in Affinity Photo
    I've never allowed an import to take place with any software, iPhoto, Photos, or Lightroom, and have my own rudimentary cataloging system using folders and sub-folders to store images on an ...
  • Don't typically respond to my own post, but amend that to read "perspective". Scott
  • Thanks for that..  I refused to "afford" the upgrade from CS5 to CS6.  Hence, going for the short term solution of CC.  I don't see Adobe having a future and it being a last ditch effort to opt ...
  • And, how many publicly traded companies are no longer in existence? It's my opinion that Adobe will price themselves out of the market, in a effort to keep shareholders happy.  I'm not the only ...
  • Perhaps not the marketing team making Adobe's decision, but Adobe is driven to keep the shareholders happy -- NOT the end user, in terms of pricing models. If driving up the price of the product is ...
  • Created discussion thread Affinity Photo
    There's definitely potential with this.  Installed it this morning, and had the opportunity.. Well, let's not say "opportunity", rather a couple of hours of fun taking it out for a test drive. ...
  • W~I~L~B~U~R...  A staple for many of us baby boomers.  I remember it well. Scott
