  • Very good analogy. A Smart Collection would then be a list of people based on what they are, or how they look. "The Elderly" for example is a list of all people of 65 years of age or older. "The ...
  • There is a distinct difference here. If a user wants to use Dropbox on his Mac, but not on his iPhone, he is free to do that. Documents that have been synced through Dropbox once, don't require ...
  • True, but I don't think this is the point. As so many times, the point is not technology. You can always find a way to install plugins on every single device. That is indeed not so complicated. ...
  • Nope. Lightroom cannot be purchased in the app store.
  • No, it would be more than that. Not every possible Core Image adjustment will necessarily be available as a slider in Photos. Look at Pixelmator, for example. That application can do a lot that ...
  • To give you an example: Pixelmator is software that uses Core Image filters. But that doesn't make Pixelmator open source or public domain software. By the way: Apple is already placing quite a few ...
  • I'm not talking about public domain or open source software. I'm talking about software that can only call Apple's CoreImage algorithms for any image editing it does. Anything else can be closed ...
  • I've been thinking about this, but I do think there is more to it than that. I think that plugins will not be allowed to use proprietary algorithms at all, because that would break the ...
  • There are several threads in this forum where hopeful Aperture users are pointing out that Photos will feature plugins, and so plugins may turn Photos into a worthy successor of Aperture one day. ...
  • Not if Apple would have made it clear that you can't have both. On the other hand, I don't see any reason why Apple could not offer an iPad Aperture app, no other reason than lack of interest. ...
  • I agree. The pins in Lightroom are like adjustment layers in Photoshop, but Photoshop has many more layer types and layer options. There is no way the entire concept of Photoshop layers could be ...
  • I think this whole discussion has become purely a semantics debate. If you define a raw converter as any application that can convert raw data into rgb data, no matter what happens next and no ...
  • Apple didn't have to abandon Aperture. They could have upgraded it regularly the last four years, and could keep upgrading it now. They could have given us a choice: continue using Aperture and ...
  • That would only be useful if Photos offers something that DxO doesn't offer, such as good digital asset management. Otherwise you could just as well use DxO as your main raw converter.
  • The present Aperture plugins use a tiff file, sent by Aperture. Any new plugins will have to be able to work directly with raw data. Consequently, the fact that Nik still supports Aperture right ...
  • No, they haven't lost their way. The problem is just that Apple's way is not the way serious amateur photographers and professional photographers would take. That's why some of these people are ...
  • No, he doesn't disagree with me at all, and you clearly don't understand what he says. Eric Chan would never say that DNG Converter is a free alternative for ACR or any other raw converter, ...
  • Of course it's about the discussion, or it should be. If somebody claims the DNG Converter can be used as a free alternative for ACR or any other raw converter, then the only relevance is whether ...
  • Yeah, right. If generating an embedded JPEG preview is your idea of a raw converter, then maybe you shouldn't shoot in raw in the first place.
  • True, but not relevant for the discussion.
