justmeMN: Doesn't Google have a history of abandoning / cancelling many things that it starts?

Add desktop Snapseed to the list (and don’t rely on the mobile version to stick around).

boarderphreak: Sell it to Adobe because theirs sucks. ;)

I quite like solving complex layer problems to work around Content Aware Fill’s, erm, limitations :-/.

And therein lies the problem. Never trust Google for Photography software (ditto for Apple).

First question: How much? Second: Will Office Remote's buggy virtual laser pointer work with these? They do look a lot better than the Samsung tellies that have been put on the walls of our meeting rooms.

This is patentable?

On article Pentax K-1 II Review: A worthy upgrade? (1406 comments in total)

Rule 1: If you add a super new feature that might prove a bit controversial with some users, give them a way to switch it off. I think Microsoft could also use Rule 1.

Rich Evans: This is a serious question: Is anyone using CC instead of Classic? If so why did you make the switch?

If you select to edit the photo in Photoshop, the interchange format is TIFF. A little USM, a watermark and a frame, in Photoshop, is often the last part of my workflow (unless I’m on my mobile only work flow, which means Snapseed and no TIFF at all :-( )....

Sure. I now mostly use CC instead of Classic. Bit crap, early on, but fine now profiles are supported. Reason? Well thanks to a good 4G connection, my photos are usually ready to edit (however I want to edit them) by the time I get home, to the hotel or arrive at a convenient watering hole. Put simply, I have interests other than photography and CC allows me to better manage my time.

hammarbytp: Before the anti-French rhetoric becomes to loud, remember that insolvency is often used to allow restructuring and give them breathing space to deal with creditors.

While regrettable it is a valid business tactic, just ask the present POTUS

The problem with the French is they don’t even have a word for entrepreneur...

Paint me optimistic. Yahoo has been something of a zombie company for a long time, so it’s (hopefully) good news that Flickr will now be owned by a business focused on Photography.

xPhoenix: I like Nikon colors. LR replicates that look, and gives us camera calibration profiles to choose from if we don't like Adobe Standard. Apparently, this is too difficult for the Phase One people. Sigh.

I prefer the realism that C1 brings to colour.

tinternaut: I’m not sure I see the point. Sure, you get the depth of field expected from this format, but not the print sizes due to the low resolution. Wake me up when the 200+MP version comes along.

Actual film, in this format, can help provide absolutely massive prints. I can already get decent prints, the sizes suggested above, from my Micro Four Thirds kit.

On article Opinion: the Sony a7 III could be the new Nikon D750 (1228 comments in total)

My first thought, when looking at the price/performance on offer, was of a spiritual successor to the D700. I think the A7 III is pretty much that. That said, what is the D750 if not the DSLR form perfected? Hence the arguments here.

In reply to:

JT26: I do not understand why Leica cannot seem to design a small lens for the SL. Its ridiculous actually. Baffled.

This was the same with their R lenses, especially the tele primes which were like drain pipes. Really odd.

This lens is as big as the Sony GM 2.8 constant and its 0.5-1.5 stops slower.

I think the idea is a lens with near as damnit no optical compromises. But yes, the SL needs some smaller, native primes.

Right, time to prepare for my eyes to water. I’ll go and read the press release above.

No doubt in response to rumours that Apple are preparing to bin Intel for its own chip designs.

In reply to:

entoman: I'm sure there will be some people who find the "creative" profiles useful but they don't seem to do anything that can't be done more effectively just by manipulating the existing sliders.

The introduction of the "neutral" profile really just does the same thing as similar profiles built-in to most cameras already.

Instead of these "gimmicks", IMHO it would be far more preferable if Adobe introduced some more real functionality, such as layers, the ability to invert masks, or the ability to transform a selection instead of the entire image.

A further increase in speed of rendering and importing/exporting would also be highly desirable, although it is now far better than in earlier versions of LR.

These latest updates bring CC quite a bit closer to Classic (which remains the better option for local edits or if you need plugins and custom camera profiles).
