How can it be more in £ than Euros? Irrelevant but odd ...
Picturenaut: I have the feeling that Adobe turns out to be the Microsoft of imaging business, they may be on the way to lose contact to the majority of their customers. Adobe should take the Windows 8 disaster as a writing on the wall.
Cloud computing has its pros and cons, I expect most software providers to move to CC. For us in Germany, as an example, this could be a disaster, since our grid is vintage and our telecommunication companies don't invest. At the latest if many people here start to edit their videos using cloud, the whole net will break down... I am not sure which countries in the world are in the same situation but this may cut sales potential for Adobe seriously. And will China allow free CC traffic with Adobe's servers? Including "critical" image material? Wouldn't bet on it.
I use Photoshop CS6, LR 4, and other Adobe stuff, and I will definitely will make up my mind about leaving Adobe's ship on the long run. Clever rats always find other good ships ;-)
Arrrrgggg .. the s/w does NOT run in the Cloud ... you don't store (by default) anything in the cloud. It just validate your license occasionally. A system that, according to Adobe, can even be done on a 3G wireless connection as it uses so little data.
Danny: Just out of curiosity.. is there any PS-user out here (or there) that does like the CC policy?
To be fair, any tablet can be used without an app - just create an image with the pattern / gradient / colour you want and show that in a pic viewer.
I do get a feeling the Apple contingent is pre-eminent amongst contributors though .. :)
That design looks almost identical to the 3 Legged Thing's Brian travel tripod ....
<sigh> If you want to rant about sly photography go have as pop at the 1000's of security cameras that capture your every move in every city.
One of the best HDR processing apps around.
Sadly, no real updates to V1 in 18 months and now v2 - s/w slow and gives worse results than Oloneo, SNS or even Photomatix. Support request went unanswered for 12 months. Shame.
