  • If you try to commercially exploit photos of the Eifel tower in Paris at night or the Atomium near Brussels right now, you will get sued if they find out. And there are numerous examples of that ...

    Sorry, but that's nonsense. If your main computer is a laptop, having >75% storage in use is not uncommon as the drives are small, and neither is the scenario of downloading files small and large ...
  • Replied in Yes
    This is kind of funny, as you mention the risk of moving blocks around - which really is not risky at all, since the change is only committed  once the write is completed - ie the data remains at ...

    Interface speed != drive speed. Rotational harddisks are still slow as hell and don't even come close to saturating the interface. So for these types of drives, it does matter. Especially 2.5" drives.
  • Replied in Yes
    While one can have discussions on his findings - I have personally seen completely opposite results on my disks using OS X, as in more than half of all files present on the system being ...
  • Replied in Yes
    Contrary to what Apple claims in their marketing material and some people, also in this thread, HFS and other unix filesystems do fragment over time. They do so slower than in the old DOS age, but ...
  • Just disable sleep altogether and you don't have to worry about keeping it alive.
  • There's actually 3 big release each year, but the biggest one is June. Anyway, unlike some, I don't have an issue with the subscription model perse. My choice is based on my needs and what is ...
  • Apple has free workshops on (among other things) iPhoto in the Apple stores. You can check your local store for dates. Or you can Google "iphoto learning" and get lots of resources online.
  • Replied in +1
    Agree. If you are just starting out and don't know what you need or want, just start with Photos. It's free, can do most things you need and when you know more and run into its limitations you ...
  • To be fair, you commented on P1 providing feature updates in point releases and then continued with the loyalty card. So I don't think it is weird for me to assume you had issues with not getting ...
  • I'm thinking there is a clue in why it is under the effects panel and not in the basic panel. :)
  • Did you ever get new features in point releases with LR? Answer: NO. Adobe always had point releases that added cameras/lenses and did bug fixes. New features were introduced in new major ...
  • Things like exports are not (barely) going to change with an SSD, but installing an SSD will definitely make the computer feel a lot faster. A regular HDD is a huge bottleneck. If you are tight on ...
  • My D800 has a crop mode, and I have never used it. In fact, I'd have to get the manual to see how to set it (figuratively speaking). Why would you crop in camera when you can do it just as easily ...
  • That would be required, yes. I think Amazon S3 can be attached as network drive?
  • There is a difference between catalog and photos. You can have all your photos on an external drive and have it backed up to the cloud, not have it connected and still see your photos or work on ...

  • Well, if he wouldn't want to be a smartiepants and actually clicked the link I provided, he would have seen that the "What's New" page states on top, before they actually get to the new stuff: Mobi ...
  • Replied in Predictable.
    How about reading the page that I linked to instead? Predictable for someone hellbent on being right even when they know they are not though.
