iMac, therefore iAm's recent activity

  • At this point  you might as well wait until El Capitain.
  • That shouldn't be an issue. Crashplan detects all those 'moves'.
  • I've had good luck with duplicate detector
  • I've been using Crashplan for a few years now and it has saved my butt twice now. Yes it recognizes when files are moved - it looks at your whole file structure. Don't be surprised if it takes ...
  • I know some people insist on them, but unless you shoot in sandstorms, protective filters are not necessary. I've been shooting DSLR's for well over 10 years - mostly L lenses (including a 200 ...
  • The people who did that are the REASON they went to the subscription based model.
  • Actually Photoshop has all the features of Photoshop Extended, a $900 program. $10 a month is a total bargain - Photoshop has never been this affordable.
  • I recently spent a week running Creative Cloud on a 2008 MacBook Pro with only 4GB while my 2013 iMac i7 with 32GB was being repaired. I had upgraded the MBP to a SSD, and I also use an app called ...
  • The number of people that have a legitimate reason (not wanting to pay for a version of Photoshop more recent than CS1 is NOT a legitimate reason) is extremely small - statistically insignificant. ...
  • And the people in this thread complaining are akin to expecting that B&W tv to deliver 1080P HD in color. I have an old Mac that I still run OS 9.1 on. I have no delusions on doing things with it ...
  • I'm running it on a 2008 MacBook Pro, so that tells me those macs are at least 8 years old. It is unrealistic to expect to have the latest and greatest software on a computer that old.
  • $10 a month for Photoshop (what used to be the 'extended version' which was more expensive that regular photoshop) and Lightroom is a bargain. Photoshop has NEVER been this inexpensive.
  • Nice thing is, once it's uploaded the updates are incremental and run seamlessly in the background. And last summer I replaced my computer and it was very easy to get the new computer recognized ...
  • Apple system software will not effect the ability of Photoshop to open a Raw file - Adobe uses it's own Raw converter - and according to your original post, you seem to have the most current ...
  • I don't even see where you are getting that from. 1TB = 1TB. If they are providing unlimited storage, then they are idiots for calling it 1TB.
  • 2TB in 37 days isn't that bad.
  • $6.99 a month is a deal if you need Office 365, but if not, it doesn't come close to Crashplan which starts at $5.99/month and goes down depending on how long you sign up for - a year is $5.00 a ...
  • Crashplan has already saved my butt twice. As noted restoration can be slow, but a good cloud service such as Crashplan will overnight a physical hard drive to you (for a fee of course). Crashplan ...
  • I've been noticing similar behavior from Image Capture, with iPhone and cards using a card reader. Even though settings are to "Open Lightroom" after time IC seems to 'forget'.
  • I would STRONGLY recommend against getting a SIX year old computer for Photoshop and Lightroom use. Will it work: yes. But it's also on the verge of obsolescence. Apple has three statuses for it's ...
