More separation between back ground would have been nice.

NottsPhoto: Come back to me with a paradigm shift.

Game changers are a dime a dozen.

"Game changers are a dime a dozen"! I like that. It's a sign'o the times in our over hyped digital hucksters. When information is captured and stored in a format other than electronic 1's and 0's, that will be a game changer. This like others is just the same game but with bigger pieces and playing board.

These are great times to be a photographer. Even more so if you have the money to spend.

Is the entire Nik collection Suite download for free? I thought we were just talking about color Effects Pro. Either way this is welcome news even if they charge for it at a later date. Frustrating though I already paid for the entire suite years ago. Not good that every time an app changes ownership they get to charge the user again.

Reilly Diefenbach: 10 bucks a month (still) for the best only faster is fine with me. The rest of you cheapskates are going to have to use something else or just run your old standalones into the ground. Boo hoo!

I too would never have enjoyed Photoshop without the subscription price. And really, I can save even more money if I choose to stop and restart my subscription if I know I won't need it or have time to use it for a period of time.

How many people filing for divorce from Adobe today, are the same people years ago who said they would never subscribe to Adobe?

I'm already a LR/PS subscriber, but I have no clue how Adobe's cloud works. But if Adobe's cloud already does or WILL offer the same functions as... say Zenfolio, then I don't see any disadvantage in transferring everything to Adobe cloud. I can foresee Adobe Cloud becoming a commercial website for individuals to print and sell images as so many other storage sites already do.

pshummer: A gamechanger? You, the photographer, have to be the gamechanger. Or nothing would change much. This Profoto A1 might eliminate some guess works and make your work easier but this is the area where experienced pros can figure out how by their knowledge and experiences. This guy in the video, is not a gamechanger but he is a happy camper with his new expensive toy. I'm happy for him. :)

True that. It will allow people with even lower IQ, skill and experience to shoot weddings. That's exactly what we do not need.
HAHAHA..."this may not be for everyone, so just hit the like button and move on" (or something like that). "pulverize that like button".

On photo My cat in the Features - ears challenge (5 comments in total)

I just wanted to be the first person to say this portrait is truly purrfect. I would have cloned away the stray whisker sticking up out of his head but other than that it's furry nice.

Stigg: it would have been nice to have seen him tackled to the ground very roughly by railroad security just when he brought the drone back.

to say that this is an idiotic and obnoxious pursuit as well as a hazard for others is an extreme understatement. the engineer slamming his window shut illustrates this perfectly. if i was an engineer i would carry something to either disrupt the RF signal or something to knock the drone out of the air.

i hope drones are banned in NYC where i live.

+1 Hypothetically this isn't any different than someone shining laser pointers into airliner cockpits. The railroads have no other choice than to prosecute and/or make an example of this hotdog or risk setting a precedent allowing it to get out of control.

Equipment and money procured from illegal activity are subject to confiscation by the FBI. Unless of course you testify a gorilla grabbed the controls from you, in which case PETA is rewarded.

On article Review: Affinity Photo 1.5.2 for desktop (302 comments in total)

"edits are mostly non-destructive". I think that's clarified somewhat further in the review that adjustments are baked in to your edited version when you go to the develop persona. Can I assume that the original file (whether RAW or JPG) are completely safe? !

News you can use. More like this please DP. And less lame LR tips.

User0023845795: The world is going insane. And nobody is lifting a finger to stop it.

If it weren't for George Orwell's writings, it would be difficult to put into words what is going on in the world. He may not have prophesized the future, but he was expressing the path of how it came to be. History repeats itself, and what Orwell was exposing in the 1940's was a virus that perpetuates itself by masking and manifesting itself in ways we can't readily recognize. PETA and PC'ness are dismantling free speech and eventually freedom of thought. We're on a bad path. When freedom of speech is lost society starts gathering moss and is eventually choked.

ZeroGravitas: If you can't see the dust specs normally then why remove them?

Not always, but in some cases further processing to taste may enhance the spots if you're adding contrast, darkening sky etc. I've found it easier to fix spots sooner in the workflow than later when trying to find a similar texture to sample from.

composed: Lightroom is for simple folks so these "3 simple Lightroom tricks" should serve them well.

Folks- Like this reply to express your "UNLIKE" for Composed's snub towards LR.

Key phrase being "might just teach you a thing". And there "might" also be at least 100.00 other tips and tricks videos for beginners that already have this covered. The spot locating method is stupid, but maybe he hasn't dug deep enough in LR to find the visualize spots button. My god, it's almost as if people are paying DP to post slag content just to promote their brand.
