Smack53: I had issues with the login when the changeover took place. Seems the original credentials got corrupted, so the support team reset my account to allow me to redo my login. I lost one photo, but that has mysteriously reappeared, otherwise just about everything else is running faster with no issues. I'm on just about every day, uploading about five days a week.
But on the negative side, it was not easy to find out how to get in touch with the proper people to get the login issues resolved. That took about one long long frustrating week. But once I had the right contact, the problem was resolved within hours.

Tax deducted at the source

Lately I needed a certification of payment of income tax 2014 from an insurance company - after a week of chasing after their customer support which in every call did not even understand what I'm speaking about I fell finally on a person who knew exactly what I need and within twenty minutes I had the desired document in my inbox ... so this problems the people describe here are not specific flickerish.

Loosing data in the cloud neither ...

sh10453: Has anyone used Zoner Photo Studio (Rev X is the latest?). What do you think?
They have a special going on, $49 for 2 years subscription with full updates, but the software doesn't expire after that. It just doesn't update, unless you renew subscription.
I wish that DPR would review it.

Fully agree - I liked this product very much and purchased the full version - but after they decided to learn subscriptionism from Adobe I canceled all my licenses and deleted the software, I would not shed a tear if I read that they go bust

On article Canon EOS M50: What you need to know (427 comments in total)
In reply to:

Patlezinc: I have made a big decision today : stop reading comments...
Omg, how empty are many of these comments.
I resist to stop reading dpr comments because, who knows, perhaps I can learn something. But , no, I only learn that bashing is the national sport here...

For me dpReview reader comments are an excellent source of photo related information and knowledge. As much as you are maybe right mentioning the emptiness of some comments, instead of stop reading learn to separate the wheat from the chaff

randfee2: I hate this hypocrisy. This sucks.

This is BAD for the user and helps nobody. Google never illegally linked to protected images or removed watermarks... Those images are free to access for anyone anyways.
If Getty or any other company is not fine with that, why not protect the high res images or any image by having to log on the website. Problem solved. But no

But no, now one has to visit sites with crappy designs, often having to look for that image for MINUTES. Going to a website results in having to look through tons of stuff before finding the pic.

I hate the direction the internet is taking for years. Artificial castration of functionality, geo-fencing and censorships everywhere. The free and liberal internet I grew up with slowly gets replaced by something I dislike!

Never could stand Getty or any of the rights-mafia. Simply close your website for non-registered and Stop messing with google who has enriched the internet like no other!

Hahaha ... I installed some of what you propose and felt like a knight in his heavy armor ... could barely move in any direction ...

(unknown member): This is annoying, because frequently when I go to visit the page associated with a Google Image Search result, it’s not there; the image is hosted in such a way that Google’s bots can find it, but it’s not actually displayed on the human-facing part of the page. So this is more than just a minor hurdle—it significantly decreases Image Search’s utility.

Or the hosting site removed the image while Google still displays it

Team Yeti: "But... but... but... it's on the Internet so it must be free for me to use however I want."

Why did Goggle not simply buy Getty ?

Well said.

There should be a change in Internet rules that everything one loads up everyone other can load down - by loading up you give automatically permission to load down - if you don't want this don't load up or upload in low quality or encrypted and give the key only to people you want.

This new Google behaviour only increases Internet traffic and placing of cookies at user machines - until now I did not have to leave the Google site to download highres pictures - now I have to navigate to other sites and accept them planting their cookies on my machine

Meiki67: Excellent !
Now I have no excuse not to make vibrant gifts with my pictures - real albums for my children and Photo Cube, Hanging Photos etc for my grandchildren.
What I liked most is Infinity Photo - maybe instead of album I make Infinity Photo for every one of my children with the pictures of their children ???
Five children and almost thirty grandchildren needs a lot of planning ... hahaha

NB please make more effort choosing the background music

BTW - all praise and complaints to https://www.youtube.com/user/TheCooph
Thumbs Up for dpReview for sharing with us

Ha ... Infinity Photo ... got the catch - take a suitable frame filled with white or black paper and photograph all the people while holding the frame.
The rest is computerwork

FlipUpFlipDown: The photo-cube would be quite hard to solve because the center-pieces are rotating!
For a one-coloured center-piece, the orientation of it is not important, but with pattern or photo on it, this can be quite tough stuff…!

I have a grandson who solves puzzles like this in five minutes - no matter if center piece rotates or not. On every family meeting his cousins feed him with puzzles they have not been able to resolve

Gesture: This is an article for PCNet or WikiHow. DPReview is/should be well above this level.

I agree with Carey Rose - thank God we live in a democratic society where nobody urges me to read what I don't want to read and if any site is filled with stuff not relevant for me I have dozens of alternatives.
Happy Christmas Shooting for All !

The last thing I want is to "got" a camera as present from people who are not subscribed to dpReview and therefore do not know the difference between a "shutter release" and a "lens release" button.

If you want to make me a present I'm pleased to give you my bank account details ... (-:)

This article strengths my intention to leave flickr.
But before I go - are there sites for the serious amateur / professional which forbid upload of smartphone pictures ?

On article Google will no longer develop Nik Collection (392 comments in total)

Although I hate Google's decision I prefer a free market which gives every enterpreneur the right to buy and sell and develop and ditch what he wants.

I have bought the full price NIK collection a few years ago but did not use too much because of uneasy user interface - prefer the Topaz collection

On article Interview: Landscape photography master Charlie Waite (29 comments in total)

"Click here to submit entries to the 2016 USA Landscape Photographer of the Year Award"

Ha ha ha ... good joke ... for me at least ...

Now jokes beside - interesting person and excellent article. And yes - photos I do not find the right attribute because "excellent" I've already used and they are more than that.

I was fascinated by the story of the guy who asks him about his profession and with heavenly (subconsciously for Freudianers) inspiration he answers what he want to be e.g. what deep in his mind and heart he really *was* and from Heaven (by chance for Freudianers) the guy was a publisher in need of images and surprised Charlie found himself the whole weekend stomping a portfolio out of the ground ...

And once for all a great THANK YOU for dpReview who brings to us all this information both on a high artistic level together with solid technical backgrounds on an exemplary perfect website !

Answer found googeling and in Abobe forum :
- ACR is a plugin bundled with PS or LR.
- Bridge is free and can activate a restricted version of ACR.
- Licensing the ACR plugin without it's big brothers is not possible.
