So, the next time someone writes that 'lensbaby' lenses are just for hipsters, remind the person of the art of Fritz Liedtke.

I think that with the zillion of photo apps you can d/l for your phone, and all the retro fx filters you can add to your photo's, this does not make any sense.

On article War Rigs: The tech used to shoot Mad Max: Fury Road (54 comments in total)

Just give me old school special fx, somehow all this computer stuff doesn't do much good. Like the old Star Wars movies, all done with scale models and matte-paintings for backgrounds, somehow it just feels more real and less over-the-top. As for Mad Max, I still think Mad Max II is awesome.

In reply to:

EOS Paul: As an existing Photoshop CC user (paid for by my employer so cost is not an issue) is there any point in using this?

No, because your employer decides what you use, if you like it or not. But why don't you go freelance and see if you like Adobe's hand in your wallet every first monday of the month? I'll bet you can see the point very soon.

Adobe, eat your heart out. This quote sounds like music to my ears:

"As you may know, we don't do subscriptions—once you buy Affinity Photo it's yours forever. "

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.

@Shiranai

"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.

On article CreativeLive kicks off Photoshop Week 2015 (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.

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).

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.
