sirhawkeye64: FYI, Macphun has said a demo will be available once the program is released for sale (not in pre-order state), and that there is a money back guarantee for those who order/pre-order and end up not liking the program. This is based on my conversation with them on FB.

I have their last Beta installed on my computer, but I wonder if there were any features that were left out of the 30-day beta trial. Either way, it might be worth the $69 for hobbyists or those who feel intimidated by PS and LR in my opinion. IT's not as extensive as PS and LR but well worth the look based on my experience with the beta so far. They also say that it will have a DAM as well built-in. They would not elaborate on whether a LR catalog could be imported (based on their response to my question regarding that) but said they would go into more detail once it's released. So I guess we'll have to wait on that question.

As a cretin I have pre-ordered this product that was designed for cretins, and avoided other products that would like to gouge me by subscription.

On article Adobe faces criticism for change of upgrade policy (375 comments in total)

I have seen this trend to the monthly fee, and will avoid if at all possible buying products like these. Corel Paint Shop Pro & Silkypix offer excellent alternatives at a much lower price.

We also still need to hear why Adobe prices for downloads in Australia are much higher than the US prices.

I think we should boycott companies if we think they are trying to take advantage of us unfairly.

On article Canon USA announces Pixma Pro-1 12-ink A3+ printer (21 comments in total)

Probably an excellent unit, but I am increasing bothered when I see prices rounded to the nearest 99: to me it implies the actual cost of production plus margin was lower. It could well have been higher of course, so I may well be wrong.

If they are not careful, they will wear out number nine, the Beatles nearly did.

On article Just posted: Hands-on video of the Samsung NX200 (76 comments in total)

I think they answered quite a few question simply showing us how it works, a good job. Saves one having to go to YouTube as well.
