smafdy: By Kim Letkeman (1 hour ago)

"Seriously twisted logic. A photograph of a work of art is like a photograph of a model, you may not sell it for profit without permission. Period. Fair use comes into play when you write an article for educational purposes, not when you sell expensive likenesses to collectors."

I think your comment is untrue.

I can take a photo of anyone who steps in front of my lens, in any venue where photography is allowed, and can sell prints, and in many cases, use the image editorially, without permission from anyone.

The Paparazzi have made an industry of doing that very thing.

What I cannot do, is to use the image to promote a product or service, without permission. I cannot us it as advertising.

"There is a difference between celebrities and regular people, you are NOT allowed to sell prints of regular people, if they discover you have, prepare for a massive lawsuit"

I think you might be mistaken about that.

I wonder if the sculptor used a photograph as a model for his sculpture.......

edit.......checked wikipedia........the sculptures were based on sketches of men he served with in WWII.

davidgp: Nothing listed here makes me want to upgrade from Elements 10. Though I use LR4 for most of my editing.

"Now, if only Adobe could work out some way to make you pay them money even if you don't want to upgrade..."

You're on Adobe's board of directors, right?

Thanks but no thanks. I think I'll pass. Too little, too late.

Wikipedia's entry for Perez explains why Kodak and the US are screwed:

"He was criticized for being one of the worst CEO's in the nation, citing the decline of Eastman Kodak during his stint as CEO.

In February 2011, Mr. Perez was appointed to President Obama's Council on Jobs and Competitiveness."

It's micro four thirds not four thirds and I don't want micro four thirds, dudes

Bali_Mirage: Wonderful.........crashing on startup.

LRuser24 has posted a fix here: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1192494?tstart=0

And it's kind of strange that Adobe deleted several threads about the crashing.

Bali_Mirage: "thousands of young people from all over Europe joined the socialist Rebublicans in a doomed effort to stop General Franco's Nationalist forces - who were militarily supported by the Nazis"

Why didn't you mention the fact that the "socialist Rebublicans" were militarily and politically supported by the Soviet Union? Quite a few of those "young people" ended up being executed by Stalin's commissars.

The article about Capa is political. Or didn't you notice?

hondo2: wait till the hood discovers that people scopes can dramatically increase the one shot one kill rate when used with the typical urban warfare handgun. hey less suffering for the target and fewer wounded bystanders.

coming soon for glock, sig, ruger, s&w, and other fine semiauto pistols.
lasers just give your position away.

As soon as I hear someone throwing around the term "clip" I know they're an idiot.

Edmond Leung: I am living in Hong Kong but never heard this brand.
Nowadays, manufacturing industry in Hong Kong is rare. I think it is made in China but the company is registered in Hong Kong.
Don't expect too much from the products made in China.

Hong Kong is already part of China, but the people in Hong Kong (even the people in Mainland China too!) will not buy the products from China if they have money in their pocket.

"Don't expect too much from the products made in China."

Right. I won't expect too much of my Made in China products from Apple. Out of curiosity, where was your computer made and by who? Icelandic elves with magic dust?

I had a Flickr Pro account for several years........about 3,000 photos and close to a million views. I took a look at Tumblr and switched. Much happier now.

In reply to:

Peter 13: Adobe should offer a "lighter" version of LR. Many people do not want, and actually find it annoying and resource consuming to have a RAW converter with cataloging functions. I would pay a premium to free my computer of all those modules. Let us have a RAW converter/editor without even the need to "import" the files and without all those gimmicks, and offer a bloated version of LR for those who want it. Such a lean product is going the photoshop way, sad.

I just reinstalled RawShooter Premium........I had forgotten just how really good it was. And at less than 10mb, it's really light.
