  • I would like to have both Intensify Pro and Focus 2 Pro.  I have Snapheal Pro and it is really great.  On the other hand, I have detail plugins from OnOne, Topaz, and nik, and Focus plugins as ...
  • After closing the initial start up of CC2014 and restarting, the start up was reduced to 4 seconds.  And, I also run a boatload of plugins.
  • Created discussions OS X "Yosemite" Public Beta
    The Public Beta goes online tomorrow.  Has anyone who signed up gotten their "invite" yet?  Keep us posted.  I've got my fingers crossed that I signed up in time.
  • I am running a 2011 MacBook Pro with Quad Core i7 processors at 2.2ghz.  I have 8 gb of RAM and my system is on a 1TB Seagate Hybrid disk drive.  I am running OS X 10.9.3.  Startup time for ...
  • Bob, How old was your printer?  Mine is well out of warranty, and it was a "refurb" to begin with.  Sounds like what you say might be the problem.  I had a similar problem with an r2880 ( but with ...
  • The machine acts as if it's loading the disk.  The carrier is sucked in part way, and the head moves, but only up to the side of the carrier a couple of times.  Then the machine ejects the carrier ...
  • Still no joy.  Tried setting up the print queue prior to loading the dvd.  Still ejects it and says the "media does not match the selected media".  I still don't get what's going on.
  • Before you even enter the print dialogue on the computer, you have to "press" in on the front feed bar to lower it.  When you do, the printer asks you to place the "media" on that platform and ...
  • I have printed a bunch of CD/DVDs in the past with my Epson r3000.  Never a problem.  However, just today I wanted to start a run of about 20 disks, so I went through the standard set up for ...
  • I think this capability to insert an app into the RAW processing chain has a lot of promise.  For instance, what if DXO could insert their RAW converter into the chain in place of whatever Apple ...
  • You keep repeating the theme about "if you don't plan on buying a new camera in the next 5 years".  Raw compatibility OS X resides in the operating system, not in Aperture or iPhoto, therefore, ...
  • I never tried that, but I suspect it would work fine.  The main point, I believe, has been lost.  That AsukaBook uses better presses, and better stock and bindings than the "mass market" printers, ...
  • 1.  Yes, they are that much better.  Better paper stock, better color gamut, better binding, and better covers.  But you pay for it.  As compared to the average Blurb, Apple, or Shutterfly book ...
  • If you plan to do a lot of video work, then upgrading to the i7 would be a good investment.  If not, then the i5 would last you a long time.
  • Apple's book service is just fine, but it's more of an entry level type book.  Blurb is OK is you are alright with their templates.  One of the nice things about Aperture is that it allows you a ...
  • Another vote for Asuka.  Best quality, pretty good turn around, but a little pricey - but worth it.
  • Guess who's back after being banned!
  • I agree, however, just for now, I find it useless.  Actually, the same points you made for LR Mobile could also apply to "Photos for iOS and Photos for OS X" when they arrive.
  • Johan has explained to you what I meant.  It's not that I don't understand, at a very deep level, how Lightroom works, just that I don't like the interface as much as Aperture's.  I teach ...
  • I really meant the sneaker net comment in the most sarcastic, silly way.  In essence, if I am in the field with nothing but my iPad, I cannot really do anything with my images until I use my ...
