Wow there are some cynical jealous haters on this site. It didn't take long to remind me why I hardly ever come on here anymore. You brick wall pixel peeping photogs are something.

News of the obvious. Consumers in general are sheep; they'll buy whatever the marketing dept tells them too.

But when new gear is announced my old gear instantaneously turns into a steaming pile of poo that I could never use to take an actual photo with. What's a guy to do? ;-)

On Photoshop CC: Adobe responds to reaction article (1879 comments in total)
In reply to:

jhinkey: Since many photographers (not graphics artists who heavily modify their images and still call it photography) don't use most of Photoshop, why not split Photoshop into a full version and a stripped down version with the features that most photographers only need.

I personally only use a handful of Photoshop features - I could use LR, but I absolutely detest the workflow that I'm forced to use - and would love to have a perpetual license version of Photoshop for Photographers option. Leave the CC version on subscription for those who need full PS capabilities and the latest and greatest feature releases.

"why not split Photoshop into a full version and a stripped down version with the features that most photographers only need."

-that's what Elements is.

Should i get this one or wait for the next one? This was announced at 17:24 so its getting a little long in the tooth by now. If they can fix the orbs, vertical banding and increase the iso I might pre-order one. I need something like this for pics of my cat, flowers, and brick walls.

astralux: For me the news in the post is not the subject but the words "while working towards our reviews". The Nikons as wel as the new Canon has been extensively tested elsewhere and users here have written so much about the models that any test now from DPR will just be too little too late and old news. Come on guys, it only takes 2 to 3 days to do the test if you knuckle down. The D4, D800 and 5D Mk III has been the biggest news on the new body front in the last month or so. All we get from DPR is previews and tests on less important models and fiddling with the web site software. Get on with it!

" All we get from DPR is previews and tests on less important models "
-less important to you maybe. Not so for the people who are interested in those other cameras.

mathew crow: Thomas- I loved the image, and really appreciate you taking the time to write and post your article. This is obviously a very popular look as a flip through any magazine will tell you. There are people with cameras who are artists, and people with cameras who are technicians. People with cameras who are artistic technicians make the best photos. After seeing the photo, I could already anticipate the rude comments by the technicians who hold the photographic rule book as sacred and never deviate from it. Pity to confine oneself so. It takes a lot to put yourself out there and show your work as well as presume to offer instruction on something to the public. Just want you to know that there are those among us who loved the shot and the look, and appreciate the well written article. I plan on utilizing many of your tips myself soon to shoot a friend in her husband's classic car.

I can't believe people are getting hung up on the location. Big deal! You picked the best spot to give you open shade with the texture of the fence in the background. The fact that it was an alley was just the means for this. Why are people so offended? Its because those who can- do, and those who can't- criticize and post overtly jealous rants. I'll won't hold my breath waiting for those who posted malicious comments to post their own articles here with their own photographs. Its so much easier to berate than create. Thanks again and keep up the good work. I for one look forward to reading you again sometime.
Matt
