  • Exactly what I am thinking.
  • I agree that Aperture is being discontinued (not dead yet -"will be soon"), but I can't quite figure out your comments about Apertur's "referenced" mode not being quite Kosher, or that it "wasn't ...
  • Only if you have stored all your images in Collections.  Hey, make a slideshow using the Develop Window, or make a Book using the Develop Window. The user interface is not modern.  It was conceived ...
  • P.S.  Mr "Adobe" himself, Scott Kelby, uses Mylio.  He did a blog post on it recently, and made a good case for it.  I like it because the user interface works so well and so fast on all three ...
  • I think that you will find that there are many who have never used Aperture who are not fond of the "modules" and flipping back and forth between them.  Adobe does a great job with image editing, ...
  • What?  I have no earthly idea what issue or poster you are responding to here.  Or what you are referring to.  Your comment seems to not have any connection to anything I posted.
  • I have been playing with "Mylio" as a potential image management solution.  It runs on iPhones, iPads, and Macs, is very fast, and makes more sense than Photos.  It's current editing tools are ...
  • Mark, I know you didn't care for Aperture, but I think we need to work with facts here.  If you wanted to in Aperture, you could just use Projects like you use folders in Lightroom, and always ...
  • Apple used to understand that early adopters, Apple fanboys, and professional artists (I include photography, design, videography, and now web design) all helped to sell their core hardware.  Kind ...
  • I think you are right.  I tried to leave a service tag for Topaz yesterday, and, after typing a rather long message, for some reason, their message board failed to send/store the message.  So ...
  • Created discussions Question about Topaz plugins
    i am trying to get all of my plugins running in Lightoom CC.  I have found that after installing the latest version of Topaz Fusion Express that when I right click on an image and select "edit ...
  • Anyone have a suggestion on how to get Topaz running?
  • LOL!
  • Very true.  At the moment, Apple software for Professional, or even Hobbyist Photographers is a big FAIL.  But they probably don't care.  We're not a large enough constituency.  At least they ...
  • I was one of those "power users" of Aperture, and I still am keeping the last 5 years or so of images in my Aperture Library.  But I'm starting up a new LR CC library and putting some effort into ...
  • Hey, honestly, I don't care.  I switched to the Photographers Plan almost a year ago.  At $9.99 a month, I'm very happy, and it costs me less than my upgrade costs for both LR and PS, and now some ...
  • Well, I guess, short of more info from Adobe, we will have to wait to see if LR7 ever shows up, or if capabilities show up in CC and not in 6, or if 6 will ever be able to communicate with the ...
  • You do not have to use the managed Library in Aperture if you don't want to.  In fact you can make the library "referenced" just like you do in Lightroom.  There is a "wording" difference, ...
  • I have Topaz plugins running in Photoshop, Aperture, and supposedly in Lightroom.  (I am running OS X 10.10.3 and Lightroom CC).  When I try to select Topaz Fusion Express 2 from either the "Edit ...
  • Be sure that when you "sign out" of the CC app, you are not just "quitting and restarting" the app, you have to go into preferences and "sign out" of the app.
