On #1 in France: Hands-on with DxO ONE article (237 comments in total)

well. I just ordered one. Let's see how it compares to the new iPhone 6s which will be announced next week.
I just think the missing optical zoom might be an issue for me. Still, I hope they have a 30-day return policy just in case. :)

On Corel releases ParticleShop brush plugin for Photoshop article (73 comments in total)

This thing doesn't work! It crashed PS CS6 and it worked for a bit on CC 2015 but now it doesn't work anymore. It crashes PS and then it crashes itself.
I called Cleverbridge and they processed the full refund right away.
IF u think about it, $50, and then you add all the extra brushes at $30 a piece, you might as well get the full Painter 6, which has all those brushes and more.
Still. I don't trust Corel...

I bought it this afternoon. I had to manually install it on Photoshop CS6 on Mac OS X 10.10.4. since it tried to install on Photoshop CC 2015, which I don't use.
Launching from PS it crashes Photoshop and it makes it Not Respond. Force Quitting PS reveals the Plug in interface which is extremely simple, not intuitive and limited to the starter pack. I like some of the effects so far but if it crashes PS, it's basically useless... It lets you work on the image but since you can't save it, so you just lose all the work... Terrible!
I should have known Corel didn't have a trial version spelled bad news...
I will ask for a refund or for an update that works.
I haven't tried it on PS CC 2015 since my trial is expired but it will probably be the same... Let me know if anyone has luck making it work.
Cheers
Pat

Another bad decision to shoot at ISO 800 in daytime. Why??? Great camera and a great lens. Why ruin the image with all that unnecessary noise.
Besides the point, the noise levels are too high. I didn't expect that from Canon.

Are we looking at the same image? There is visible noise everywhere at ISO 400 in broad daylight.... That is not acceptable to me. The image is soft and why in the world shoot it at 400? I bet ISO 50 at 1/4000 and F8.0 would have been much better.
Still, the noise levels are as bad as an iPhone 6+...
Still loving my 1DX...

oselimg: His camera is made of cheap plastic Canon and DR is way behind Sony sensors there fore I don't like the pictures. This also doesn't allow me to repeat how great my mirrorless camera is.

Who cares if the camera is cheap? maybe you and your mirrorless should try to be as creative as he is.

nzmacro: Very well done and yep, clever work. Enjoyed these a lot. A few negative comments in here, so I went and looked at a few of their sites and galleries. You are way ahead ;-) One even tries this type of work, no wonder they are a bit envious. All the best and great to see thanks. Danny.

There will always be negative comments when people see some unique, different and stunning. Instead of appreciating the work for what it is, envious people try to find something wrong with it so they feel better about not thinking about it themselves.
Achraf clearly works on a limited budget and with "consumer" equipment. Still his work is awesome and clever.
Cheers

I haven't tried Affinity but I actually might. I am disappointed with the new PS CC 2015... It is slower than CS6 on my 4.0Ghz iMac 5K and the interface is very PC-looking and the "new" features still don't warrant a switch from CS6.
One thing that PS has is 25 years of leadership and therefore many plug-ins.
Affinity needs to be able to use PS compatible plug-ins or get in touch with some of the most popular plug-in makers for a fair chance to replace PS.

Maybe Adobe should buy it and integrate it to LR. They have done it in the past with web design, illustration and layout software.

ewelch: Apple didn't sell enough copies of Aperture to justify the support it requires to keep it ahead of Lightroom.

But I won't use Lightroom in any case. I have tried it several times. I don't like it, and it's not appropriate for a multi-user environment where more than one photographer works on photos. Same was true about Aperture, mind you.

I always used iPhoto as well as Aperture or Lightroom. To make calendars, books, etc. So I suspect I will use Photos for that kind of thing. And to put photos on Facebook and share with friends and family.

But let's face it. I have 18 TBs of space at work, and about 10 TB of space at home. That does not translate to having everything online in any case!

I use Aperture for pro work and iPhoto to sync my albums to my iPhone and iPad. I have 35000 photos synced. I would need over 300GB to store them all online so I will still keep using both side by side
