Marcin 3M: Production located in a proper place, with vivid history of making copies.
Probably the first was the polish FOS camera (built at the late 18-th/early 19-th century) appeared to be the first soviet camera ever made - 15 years later.
Then we can find the Kiev to be indistinguishable from Contax and Leica from Zorki camera.
Again, Polish enlarger lens Janpol-Color, designed for enlarging color prints, was copied there.
They will definitely be the success with this one. First time under original name.

I think you meant late 19th/early 20th century ;)

And yes, I remember Zorki, Zenith, Kiev - nice copies ;)

Shamael: I have 3 main software on my computer, PS Cs6, DXO Pro8 and C1Pro7, and none of the 2 others can beat C1Pro when it comes to IQ from RAW. I need PS for further rework, but RAW to Jpeg is only converted by C1Pro, it makes the best out of any shot.

Similar here. C1Pro 7 for RAW conversion, if further editing is needed I use CS6.

A good starting point for photo-editing software review. And timely!

Once my CS6 "matures" I am sure I will look for alternatives......

KG: Yesterday I installed the CS6 upgrade. Installation went without issues. The CS6 seems to be faster than CS5, so it is an added bonus.
What I noticed though is that CS5 is still on th ecomputer and works as well. Question: can I uninstall CS5 without affecting CS6?

Do I have to deactivate CS5 first?

SgtDave: Like most of the posters on here, I am disgusted by the latest antics from Adobe. Where is the loyalty shown to all of the long-time users ??
I have a different perspective on this: PS has been in development for over 20 years and, lets face it, does just about everything that you could wish for apart from jump out and take the shot for you. Adobe must have realised that after the new 'ground-breaking' camera-shake correction capability, there really isn't much more to offer. The lack of significant new features in the future results in fewer users needing to opt for the latest version so what's the alternative? Subscription purchase, of course, to guarantee future steady income for minimum development costs. The cloud is just a diversion - you can use numerous other cloud vendors if you simply must have offsite storage.
If you can really manage without the new goodies offered by CC, why not just stick with CS6 until another vendor comes up with a realistic challenge to PS.

I remember using it when it was JSAC or something like that. I like it though I had to switch to Photoshop as at that time JSAC software was not color space aware and I could not get the colors right. But you are right there are alternatives. With my upgrade to CS6 I am sure I bought myself a few years of time. Though knowing me I will "upgrade" to something shortly ;)

KG: Anyone out there knows how to upgrade from Photosohop CS5 to CS6?

All I see on Adobe website is upgrade to CC.........it sucks.....

I decided yo bite the bullet and upgraded my Photoshop CS5 to CS6 yeasterday for $199 download.
HowaboutRAW, I google the issue issue and found explanation on Adobe forum how to find the upgrade. You need to go to Adobe main page, select BUY, then Photoshop, again BUY and then you get option of FULL version or UPGRADE. I had difficulties finding it the second time. I am convinced Adobe made it for a reason - they want us to subscribe to CC. Good luck finding the upgrade!

stuartworley: FWIW, I think DP is letting Mr. Hendrickson off easy on his responses to their questions. Where's the follow up for details?

Next, have you looked at the two referenced Adobe blog postings? There is little to no response fro the blog author/Adobe. Victoria has answered a couple of questions, but there is still the lack of detail in the responses. Also, I've had a comment awaiting moderation since May 7. And, nothing has been updated since then. Here's what I asked:

Will future features incorporated into ACR for CC (?) also show up in the non-CC LR?

Will the following tools / capabilities be added to the non-CC LR:
selections, masks, layers, pano merge, focus stack merge, HDR, ...

If these features are addressed then there would be little need for CC for the "just photographers" group.

I tend to agree with you. They are targeting big business, not small guys like us. That's their busines model.

This is exactly what I think. CS6 is much more powerfull than any photograper needs are. What else can Adobe add? Not much. Hence the switch to subscription service- captive castomer and nice cash flow.

What photograpers need is a "Photoshop" like software with 20% of capabilities of CS6. Just get the right features and we should be right.

I am sure we will see alternatives on the market very soon.

Nevermind, just found it. But to be honest I have never seen such an unintuitive site. Then again I can understand it, Adobe wants everybody switch to the cloud......or above ;)

Ross,
I checked again and no luck. I went through 5 pages of products and there is no CS5 to CS6 upgrade available. What I am doing wrong? It drives me nuts..

MoJoPhoto: Adobe... can you spell DONE ????

I'm done with Adobe photo products. Most plugins can be used in other software that costs far less and has nearly all the capabilities of PS that I need... and I don't need PS to make a living with PS so take your SAS (Software as a Service) model and pitch it to your big commercial accounts and full-time pros. You won't be successful at doing this to hobbyist / freelancers....

BUT... I'M SURE YOU KNEW THIS AND DIDN'T CARE ABOUT THAT MARKET (US) TO BEGIN WITH !!! SO... Thanks for throwing the rest of us overboard.

I am sure Adobe new that. They cater to big commercial companies, they do not care about hobbyist.....

I am just a hobbyist though life was good to me and I can afford good equipment and software. I use my equipment mostly during vacations (3 times a year) plus occasional use. I do own Capture One Pro latest version which I use as a RAW converted and CS5 for editing if needed. I know it is all overkill but I like to have the “best possible”. With Adobe moving to cloud I do not think I will be subscribing to CC. It just makes no sense to me to pay monthly fee and use this service just a few times a year. And with CO Pro getting more sophisticated I will most likely stay with my CS5. And later on may look for a less powerful but traditional photo editing software. CS5 is much more than I need anyway…..

That said I understand Adobe – there is nothing better than nice cash flow and captive customer…..and that what CC is all about.

Paul Guba: How short sighted leadership that lacks vision can destroy a company. Kodak pretty much owned the imaging business. They developed much of the digital technology we use now. However they saw digital as threat to traditional market of film and so stifled their own move towards it. It wasn't expediently profitable to move towards digital. Short term they made their profits but eventually it killed them. First digital camera I owned was a Kodak 460N.

As T3 said, they missed the market....even though they invented digital technology....

This was all about leadership, or lack of. Unfortunately past Kodak CEO's simply screwed up the company....and ripped benefit of it! Sad story, but there is nothing we can do about it...just treasure memories....

kenporter: Perhaps the US government should buy their patents in order to: (1) forestall future patent lawsuits, (2) ensure that these patents are made available to everyone AND (3) license them to any company at a fair rate & use those proceeds to offset the deficit. Then these patents won't get locked away in a vault for a select few to reap the benefits of. Instead, the general public benefits. Crazy idea, huh?

Yes, it is crazy, but I like it!

Never gonna happen though ;)
