  • Your post title makes it sound as though it got slower.
  • The difference between having scratch on an NVMe vs HDD is that the former will still be horrible—but less so—should you need to read from it much during editing. The fastest SSDs are still many, ...
  • Replied in New pc
    A friend once made a similar observation about Norton/Symantec, saying it was harder to get rid of than any virus he'd ever had.
  • Some people look at benchmarks and their eyes glaze over in anticipation of performance gains that are seldom attainable in the real world.
  • Cherry pick much? Jump forward a few months and we find... Puget's Matt Bach : In the past, there were arguments for using either an AMD or Intel processor for Photoshop, but with the new Ryzen ...
  • I had to make this decision recently, i.e. 2x32 or 4x16. Knowing that I would be unlikely to ever need more RAM than 64GB, I opted for the 2 stick route to eliminate a possible source of issues ...
  • Create an Action with your preferred values. You'll have to work out how to pause the process to select your displacement map, assuming it's not the same for each image.
  • Duplicate the good eye to a new layer and do a flip horizontal, then rotate and align with the bad eye as best you can. You want to retain most of the problematic eye but add in the eyelid ...
  • Thanks, Ray. Wishing everyone a blessed, prosperous and peaceful new year.
  • No, I looked for info and came up empty but I would guess it will happen in the coming year. I am putting together a new system for just this reason--to get CS6 and LR6 on new hardware before the ...
  • Yes, that would be me. As a reminder, Adobe will be shutting down the remaining CS activation servers soon. If you're planning on installing CS6, etc. to a new build, I would suggest making that ...
  • More or less. I'm going to try Macrium's redeploy to new hardware which updates an image with the essential new drivers (mobo, storage, etc.) to facilitate the move.
  • I'm gathering parts for a new rig. At this point I plan to forego a clean install and port my old Win10 to the new hardware. I'm not sure where Adobe buries their system config info, or if they ...
  • I haven't read the EULA but I would guess this maneuver is covered by the language, either in plain English or legalese weasel words—but legal does not mean ethical . And even if they cannot ...
  • I guess I should be surprised but I'm not. Assuming the message you received was genuine, it's no better than extortion. It's known that Adobe is shutting down activation servers for CSx so that ...
  • What does this attack portend for everyday, non-technical people who just want to use the Internet to browse, shop, bank, send email and share photos?
  • You may find something useful in this Motherboard VRM Tier List even though it's specific to AMD. I found that I can get a quality power delivery system without buying overpriced hardware with ...
  • For my last build I "future proofed" it by buying the leading Ivy Bridge processor and a capable mobo (Asus p8v77-V Pro). Believe it or not, I'm still quite satisfied with its performance even ...
  • In Photoshop: Convert grayscale, red channel, then Image, Adjustments, Brightness/Contrast: Brightness = 150 (max). This will at least provide a reasonable starting point.
  • I'll respond even though your comments weren't addressed to me. With regard to salvaging images, my success rate with Sharpen AI is probably around 15% or less. I have seen it work virtual wonders ...
