On Corel releases ParticleShop brush plugin for Photoshop article (73 comments in total)
In reply to:

clicstudio: I bought it this afternoon. I had to manually install it on Photoshop CS6 on Mac OS X 10.10.4. since it tried to install on Photoshop CC 2015, which I don't use.
Launching from PS it crashes Photoshop and it makes it Not Respond. Force Quitting PS reveals the Plug in interface which is extremely simple, not intuitive and limited to the starter pack. I like some of the effects so far but if it crashes PS, it's basically useless... It lets you work on the image but since you can't save it, so you just lose all the work... Terrible!
I should have known Corel didn't have a trial version spelled bad news...
I will ask for a refund or for an update that works.
I haven't tried it on PS CC 2015 since my trial is expired but it will probably be the same... Let me know if anyone has luck making it work.
Cheers
Pat

Imagine that, a Corel program that crashes :^)

Some are over the top, but I like them anyway. An excellent eye for composition makes up for a lot :^)

On Lens Rentals Canada closes its doors article (178 comments in total)
In reply to:

newe: Canada Post will be closed once Harper (current prime minister) wins by a landslide again...it is a true pity the idiots at the head of the other parties cannot must anything useful to say, except on legalizing pot. But u never know, from what I understand, most Canadians are not abreast of issues affecting them anyway...so maybe the pot heads will win after all. I bet the pot will move faster through the mail than these lenses did.

You say pot smoking as if it were a bad thing. Have a nice glass of Canadian Club and chill out.

On photo in sample gallery (13 comments in total)

I hope those climbers in the couloir are on their way down :^) This would have been a pretty good focus stack with the trees in the foreground.
The polarizer was the right call for sure, making the foreground pop very nicely. But of course you'd desaturate the blue to a more realistic level if you were finishing it.

DSC08432 (Council Crest) should have been taken without exposure comp. You're two stops away from blowing highlights according to the LR histo. That would have made the color a lot better and avoided the noise. As well, we have sensor spots. Glad I'm not the only one :^) This series might have saved me $3200. We'll see!

On Capture One Pro 8 software review article (306 comments in total)

50% more per month than CC for far less capability and a clunky interface? No thanks!

On Nikon D810A: An astrophotographer's perspective article (113 comments in total)
In reply to:

Tom Goodman: I cannot comment on the astrophotographic correctness of these images but I can say they are utterly fungible with thousands of other similar pictures and, thus, are eminently forgettable. As far as I am concerned they fail the three major tests for memorable work:

1. Did I wish I took the picture?
2. Do I wish I owned the picture?
3. Did I go out into the world after seeing the picture and see the world as the photographer did?

No on all three counts.

Tom the wet blanket!

Brooks Falls. I was there in '95 with some film camera or other, had a close encounter with a thousand pound boar. Once in a lifetime trip!

Is the Dordogne the most beautiful area of France? I'll have to return and evaluate further. Nice one!

Exactly the results I got with the D800e. Soft at 600 with truly horrible highlight handling. Too bad, I had the credit card out!

On Nikon D7200 Review preview (573 comments in total)
In reply to:

Guidenet: Personally, I think DPR puts way too much emphasis on Liveview and movies. This is mostly a still camera forum. I know some shoot video, but I'm not sure it's something to emphasize in cameras past a certain level. I know, Liveview is generally not very important at the higher level models. When many use Liveview it's on a tripod and/or macro work when you're looking for accuracy, not speed. For any action, it's eye-level. This is not targeted at beginners.

Maybe DPR would do well to look at their own polls. Since 2/3rd of the voters consider manual controls and interchangeable lenses the most important interest, maybe those type things should get 2/3rd of the emphasis. Since WiFi and Touch Screen have almost zero interest, maybe they and similar items shouldn't get much. Small size is a distant 3rd place. I think some might get caught up with a jaded view of what they believe is innovative without paying attention to what we want in a camera.

Craig hits the nail on the head again :^)
