Chris Noble: Do some of the posters below realize that this is about photographic emulsion paper (i.e. exposed and developed), not about the paper that you run through your inkjet printer?

Some do.

High quality photo prints are so cheap these days, I don't know why everyone isn't doing it.

John Vickers: Oh yes, and what about Capture One ?

SGal: We're just obviously not speaking the same language here. Sorry to see that.

Look at the list, SGal. It carries Lightroom and AfterShot - both of those are obviously RAW converters, so how is this line drawn?

winkalman: Phase One's Capture One and Hasselblad's Phocus software are probably worth considering as well. Although, I admit, I haven't tried either.

Last time I looked, I think I saw that Phocus supports only Hasselblad cameras except on Mac, where it offers limited editing support for files from any camera supported by the inbuilt RAW support of the operating system.

Woefully incomplete list.

So is this lens is "exiting" in the sense that it will have no further proofreading applied to it?

Discussion seems to be full of people who *think* they understand the situation, but let me ask a question: If those ten people went for eval and over a finding of PTSD were declared unfit for duty, meaning they may lose their earnings, what happens next? Depending how the law works (and nobody that I've seen comment so far seems to actually be a lawyer familiar with relevant provisions), they may be forced to sue to be able to still make a living. Yes or no?

RedFox88: Those ten didn't get PTSD from that plane decent. Lawyers. Wow!

What's next? I can sue the State for a deer running in front of my car getting my heart rate up because they didn't kill enough if them off ?!

"Those ten didn't get PTSD from that plane decent."

How do you know?

Prognathous: I'm still (happily) using PSP X7 and will likely skip X9 (just like I did X8), as I don't find features that make much of a difference for me. Here's what I'd like to see:

- Option to automatically tag RAW and JPEG files with location names (based on GPS coordinates embedded in my Sony A77 files)
- 100% Photoshop plugin support
- Tool to create a sheet of passport pictures
- Option to hide all toolbars and palettes with a keyboard shortcut (like Tab in PS)

@User: AfterShot was already cross-platform when Corel bought it. Porting things to new operating systems is harder than writing them multi-platform from the start. Look at Affinity - they had an existing product for Windows but rewrote from scratch for Mac, probably with a Windows port at the back of their minds. And they're going to be eating Corel's pie soon, as someone else also suggested.

I can't find the relevant info on their website, but buyers beware: AfterShot 3 is most likely a "lite" version of AfterShot Pro 3.

DVT80111: what pocket?

On the left, a camera that you claim is pocketable. On the right, a camera that reviews have said is not quite pocketable. You see my skepticism?

MikeTakesPix: Better to get a degree in a STEM field and have thousands of dollars to pay for your hobbies, photography included.

@gray: It is an illusion to believe that any group of 35-65 year olds (that are mostly men) can give you a complete vision of life. Again, do not just look up, but sideways, too.

Leandros S: I have various thoughts on this, starting with the suspicion that the closure is a sign of unwillingness to change with the times, to adapt or diversify their programmes so that reasonable earning prospects are maintained. Having read the announcement snippet reproduced here by Alex Permit, I wonder how "program" is actually defined - does each degree course have to meet the thresholds, separately? Does the BI only offer one course, or did several courses fail the criteria?

But more painfully, how does one rack up $10k in "books and supplies"? Books should be supplied through a library. And what does "supplies" refer to? I really can't even take a guess, as it's obviously not film and prints - you'd be hard-pushed to reach even $2k with those unless you were being fanciful (i.e. financially reckless). Someone mentioned loaner gear, so it's apparently not that, either.

Well, my uni had a library where you could borrow all the books you might need. You only paid uni fees and then the book borrowing was "free". Seems like a better system.

jkrumm: Move to Germany and you can get a quality photography education for close to free. I heard an interview with a guy who was finishing up his doctorate. It can be very valuable to have several years to focus on learning your art, and learning about art. The guy who was just selected to be the official photographer to document National Park architecture, guess what, he studied photography at school.

You left out a step: Learn German.

@gray: You should not expect your university to supply everything in your life. Keep your eyes and ears open - thus you may be able to avoid the kind of pitfall you describe.

D200_4me: I guess there are too many 'workshops' being offered today to turn everyone into a Nat Geo photog and they couldn't compete with that. If I see one more Iceland workshop...

I'll issue a challenge - if anyone can teach me to take bad pictures in Iceland, I'll even pay for the course.
