hikerdoc: DXO vs Adobe. Perpetual license vs Subscription model. Has anyone compared the financial standings of these two companies with their differing philosophies?

I think the Adobe/DXO graph would be an X, one going up, the other down. Way down after this announcement.

redtailboas: Good old America. File for bankruptcy and continue business as usual.

Just ask the president, he's done it five or six times.

AbrasiveReducer: Anything's possible. The president has declared bankruptcy several times and it doesn't seem to have hurt him. Still, it's not a good sign.

As for taking a swipe at Adobe, most software is, mercifully, still something you only have to pay for once.

Mercy is paying $10 a month for the world's best. DXO for over $300 plus updates, not so much.

Just think how many better than the normal rubbish scripts they could have bought for $700,000. 30? But who cares anymore, right?

falconeyes: 43“ 4k monitors have two big advantages:

1. They are cheap b/c they can use TV panels (as shown by this TV HDR panel).

2. They are 102 dpi so they can run Windows at 100% w/o the scaling glitches.

They of course look enormous on a desk ... which needs to be big too

@everybody. You guys are all upset that Windows 10 runs 4K just fine using up to date software. Why is that? Maybe some of you need to upgrade your video card? I don't run any legacy apps, thus no issue. As a card carrying pixel peeper, I would have absolutely zero tolerance for fuzzy text or lousy looking fonts. I have no idea what a "rastering mess" even means, but I can assure you my current setup blows away any 1080P I've ever seen. We've never had it so good, that is for sure.

Windows 10 runs fine with no issues at 200% on a 27" 4K monitor. Really old stuff like the Nik Collection won't scale, but who cares? CC is just fine, as are all other up to date programs.

DiffractionLtd: Finally, the realization that 4K is USELESS unless you sit 1ft from a 27" monitor or get this one and sit at a human distance of 3ft or so. Unless you have eyes like an eagle, you simply can't resolve 4K at any kind of distance you are used to using with an HD monitor.

"you simply can't resolve 4K" I fully agree that some can't tell 4K from 1080P. For the rest of us, this item looks pretty good.

All I want to do is document some spectacular scenery or a few birds. Don't give a hoot for "art" photography and wouldn't cross the street to see it. My new gear makes it a lot sharper and easier than my old. A lot easier, a lot sharper.

Yes, please buy Capture One for twice the money and stop your whining.

mxx: Don't know why they even bother fixing bugs. Their users must pay them anyway.

Yeah, thank dog I can spend twice as much money and still not get Photoshop :^)

Jonsi: We forgive you Adobe.
See you again when you apologize for the next release !

Some of you guys have a lot bigger photographic problems than a software update.

Olifaunt: I don't know why everyone assumes Flickr is moribund. Flickr has no competition among more serious photographers. I find it plenty active. You will see everyone's photos posted in order, and no ads. Instagram and Facebook are geared toward the selfie masses, and the manipulative algorithms, algorithms, advertising, and trolling are hellish. And Smugmug doesn't have the communities.

Plus one on this.

Let's hope they don't hoke up what is a very good website with a bunch of garbage graphics.

On article Sony 'striping': here's the fix (791 comments in total)

"you simply drag-and-drop a compressed Sony Raw file into the web application, wait a few seconds, and download the resulting file (you'll want to add '.ARW' to the end for your Raw software to read it properly). And voila - almost every trace of the striping is removed."
This is not anything like a "quick fix."
