PieterB: yeah no point. Apple users love adapaters since Apple seems to change their ports every few years. Bought a nice fast Thunderbolt drive? Bad luck. Buy an adapter.

Want to connect your new Iphone to your spanking new Macbook Pro. Buy an adapter.
Want to connect your nice headphones to your new Iphone 7. Use an adapter (supplied with the Iphone 7).
Use your older usb-3 hard-drive. Buy an adapter.

Of course USB-C is really good but it would be nice to connect any peripheral without using an adapter.
Want to connect an external screen, yup. Buy an adapter.

If adapters turn you on, buy an Apple device.
There is one plus side. USB-C is not Apple proprietary so they can't charge patent-fees.

I was referring to the poster's comment about how to transfer from an iPhone to a MacBook Pro.

I use AirDrop to transfer images to my laptop and iMac, works well for me, no adapter is required.

PanchoVilla: Crap, so power Photoshop users who rely on F keys are SOL. Damn.

Doesn't pressing the fn key bring up the F-Keys?

I remember calling a software vendor about a questionable update and they told me, "It's not a bug... it's a FEATURE!"
This feature may be refined into something more useable in the future, but for now not so very much.

On photo Gaucho in the Mexico, DRC, Uruguay, Georgia challenge (2 comments in total)

His friends were standing behind me kidding him and saying, "muy feo", but I thought his face showed so much character and life experience.

...and this idea worked out so well for Google.

On photo Orange Hibiscus in the Hibiscus Flowers challenge (2 comments in total)

The flower was imaged with a Betterlight digital scanning back and thus required a 10 minute exposure. Since nothing in the subject can move while imaging, I always orient the flower to minimize any movement. Rotating the subject alters the direction of the lighting and can look odd.

Good work! The focus stacking is very effective.

Photo Pete: There's nothing like viewing your holiday snaps and knowing that sizeable chunks of those memorable views have been completely invented by software

"sizeable chunks of those memorable views have been completely invented by software"

Which probably improved most of them.

On photo Moon Sequence in the Time Lapse - Shutter Speeds below 1/30 sec. challenge (3 comments in total)

Yes that was the technique I used. I would go to 4 minute intervals for a full moon.

Sean65: It's now got to the stage that it is cheaper to buy a new printer than to replace ink cartridges when they run out. Never seen such a rip off market in my life. Ink is more expensive than gold.

Then again I have bought hundreds of Epson large format ink carts and never gotten a bad one. My first and last foray into 3rd party inks was 30% vacuum failure rate and a ruined print head.

PKDanny: So funny!!

I stopped using clear protective filters many years ago; right after I got really good at removing lens flare in Photoshop.

Thanks! I was fortunate to grab this shot as the clouds disappeared quickly.

Thank you! Death Valley is a must stop for landscape photographers. The geology is amazing.

Great shots that make it seem like one is actually part of the climb.

On challenge Close up or Macro Shot of a Flower (13 comments in total)

In reference to your disqualification of my Heliconia image, I would note that the two green cylindrical shapes in the image are the stem of the plant.
