And who needs an de-haze feature anyway? Just take better pictures or leave the job to someone else. Completely nonsense and only for CC users, there goes your money. $$$$$

Say NO! to CC, you know why.

"Additionally photoshop as well as other Adobe products are industry-standards. For private persons it may be good because of the low price, but for businesses and professional work environments its a no-go."

Because We (I) did invest in Photoshop from the very beginning. Thanks to our money they could become industry standard. And we (I) alone decide we go CC or not. Your choice. And my choice is not letting Adobe's hand in my wallet every first Monday of the month. As an artist I am not depended on any tool, I can work with anything, industry standard my @ss.

I don't share the overall negative comments, I think this could be a very nice lens for more 'artistic' purposes. BUT, I think this bokeh effect should be used carefully. I remember when the HDR photoshop filters where a new thing, people went overboard with these fx, but when you do it with care, it could work well. Otherwise it looks like a cheap trick and bores quickly. In the right hands (and this is often the problem) this lens could make some very interesting pictures. Handle with care.

Apart from color correction, how far do you want to go with editing on a smartphone screen?

Is there something wrong with me saying that the photo without flash is better?

On CreativeLive kicks off Photoshop Week 2015 article (12 comments in total)
In reply to:

razadaz: Every time Photoshop is mentioned there is a rush of postings both pro and anti Adobe, and in general opinions appear to be highly polarised. I sincerely wish Adobe would offer their products both as standard one off purchases and subscription based plans. That way people could make their choice and get on with creating images, rather than arguing the pros and cons of software subscription plans. Kudos to Photoshop for playing their part in beginning the electronic imaging revolution, but although it may have begun with them is does not mean it has to continue with them.

Kudos to the programmers who created PS, but I have no good words for the CEO's responsible for destroying PS with their CC-plan. You may sincerely wish Adobe will offer both a pay and a loan option, but then you don't understand Adobe's strategy here; your wallet.
Say NO to CC, you know why.

On Adobe celebrates 25 years of Photoshop article (366 comments in total)
In reply to:

flashkube: I used Photoshop for fifteen years and hated every minute of it. What a teeth grinding experience it was. Ever since I switched to two other tools I have been enjoying myself and now look forward every day to editing photos. I won't name them here because I will be accused of working for the other brand and nobody is ever allowed to complain about just how awful Adobe products are in general. All I can say is good riddance...I'm free at last!

15 Years of PS and you hated every minute of it.. what the h*ll where you doing with it? I despise Adobe's CC policy, and I will never rent software, but overall PS has always been a great piece of software (18 years of experience).

I wonder how many years of CC they are going to celebrate.

This photograph is about the fundament of humanity. No matter who you are, what you are, what your religion or sexual orientation is. It is repulsive to reject a person just because of that. This photograph could have been taken anywhere in the world, places that are much worse than ours, but it could also be taken just around the corner from where you live. Homophobia does not have any borders, and reading some of the comments below, it is clear and present, right here, right now.

Direct link | Posted on Feb 11, 2015 at 12:21 UTC

This was to be expected. Great Illustrator & PS alternatives are in the make and will ultimately come to a professional level sooner than later. Would I be interested if I could still buy PS? Probably not. Am I interested now that Adobe's flagships are rent-ware? Hell yeah! Never I will rent my software. I am an artist and I can do my thing on any decent piece of software. Say NO(!) to CC, you know why.

On Panasonic DMC-CM1 to go on sale in UK article (154 comments in total)

I think that the question is not that this is a good device, I am sure it will deliver excellent pictures. But if you care so much about high quality images you will carry a small pocket cam with you. With the flagship phones you will get excellent quality as well, and in a much smaller package for a more realistic price.

Unrealistic price, bizarre. An expensive camera fused with an expensive phone. It reminds me of the old days with those video-television combinations, if your video broke down and needed a repair you lost your tv as well.
