On Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II Review preview (507 comments in total)

Given the price of this camera (and its optional electronic viewfinder) it is a crime that Sony doesn't provide a printed real (vs. Quick Start) manual for the camera. There is also no CD with the manual or other software disc included with the camera. And, the Web-based version of the manual is a pain to read - it's all topline topics only and requires clicking to expand any given topic. There is just no facility for the speed and ease of flipping back and forth b/wn manual pages that there would be with a printed, with decent sized font (geared to the eyesight of middle-aged people who can afford the blankety blank camera) manual. For such a complex camera that is so feature rich, a printed manual is a must!

Fotomaker01: As a hobbyist photographer who primarily uses Ps, but also occasionally Ai & InDesign (for photo compositing and photo bk design, respectively) I cannot afford this ill-conceived Adobe money-making venture. I haven't seen anyone address the issue of how 3rd party plug-ins (Nik, Topaz, Alien Skin, etc.) that run within Ps will be supported if Ps is only offered as a CC product, with ad hoc feature updates when Adobe bestows them on the world. It was challenging enough for the plug-in filter makers to make needed revisions for Ps every 18 mos. I will be one of those folks, who stay with CS5 Ext. for the foreseeable future. This sucks - not all photographers (hobbyist or other) use Lr. I prefer Ps and affiliated pkgs for photos for my pleasure and portfolio creation. Just wait till the idiots who came up with this at Adobe get a bit older and want to keep their synapses going with a stimulating hobby. Hope someone treats them as well for being loyal & a previously vocal advocate...

Not everyone is an Apple user.... hard as that may be to believe. Some of us prefer PCs and Android systems as superior. And Topaz photoFXlab - while nice - is not robust like Ps and doesn't allow combining other vendors' plugins - just their own. I don't think you must use a lot of Ps and related filters in a PC environment if you don't get the implications. But your heart is in the right place...

If we have the previous release of Viewpoint, is the update free? To install the v. 1.1 update should we 1st uninstall the previous version, or will the update overwrite the previous vers. w/out the need to uninstall? Thx!

On Adobe releases Photoshop CS6 Public Beta article (22 comments in total)

The Content Aware Patch/Move should bring a whole new level of "oh boy" ethics to photojournalists. But to the rest of us may be fun as 'heck'! I'm holding out for the CSI deblur feature (CS7 perhaps?).
