  • As an FYI, ON1 came through for me on this issue.  While I don't like their new focus, I have always appreciated their customer service.  And again, they were great.
  • I had the Samyang 45mm 1.8 and the Samyang 35m 1.8. They were good, but I replaced them both with the 40mm 2.5. Haven't looked back. I just like the Sony lens better. Again, YMMV. I am just glad ...
  • I actually enjoy using the 40mm 2.5 lens.  It is in fact, on my camera most of the time.  I like the size, the handling, the image quality.  I use it with the 20mm 1.8 and the Samyang 75mm1.8.  I ...
  • I rebuilt the catalog and turned on face detection, but not indexing while the computer is idle.  I disabled facial recognition.  So far, the program has worked without crashing at startup.  Thank ...
  • Thanks for replying.  I have a Ryzen 3900x with 64gb of memory.  The crashes were new with the 2021 version (Ultimate 2020 did not have this problem).  Following suggestions from users, I turned ...
  • Topaz was a different story. The lifetime free upgrade offer was generous and it was going to run them to the ground. I don't think we would have gotten Adjust AI, DeNoise AI, Sharpen AI if they ...
  • Thanks for the comments, though the 2021 version had a similar bug.  It displayed a box that you had to click and then the program crashed.  This year's version just crashes.  Well, I turned it ...
  • Created discussion thread ACDSee Photo Studio Ultimate 2022
    I just purchased this program (updated from 2021).  It has some nice improvements but has a similar problem that plagued Ultimate 2021.  If the face detection and if the indexer is utilizing the ...
  • The 2022 plugins are now available. In the U.S., you can add the plugins to the standalone version for $70 U.S. If you buy it as a standalone, it is on sale for $130 at the moment, with a normal ...
  • Thanks for your thoughts.  I actually have Photoraw 2022 (free upgrade for me, since I have the Pro Plus subscription).  I miss the plug in capability from this version, so I still have 2021.5 in ...
  • I have not upgraded my version of Nik since the pre google days (I actually paid for it before google made it available for free).  The plugins still work.  All I am saying is that instead of ...
  • I think that this is an opportunity to try the upgraded version of Nik.  The Photoraw 2021.5 (which works as a Photoshop plugin) will have to do.  I won't be using Photoraw 2022 that much, since I ...
  • The 2022 version of the plugins are not out yet, at least that's what the U.S. site says. Here, you need to pay $80 for the standalone and an additional $70 for the plugins. I am an ON1 Plus Pro ...
  • I used to buy the 5 Day Deal packages, but found that I am better off buying classes from CreeativeLive and/or Kelby.  Nothing wrong with the 5 Day Deal, but the deals used to include software and ...
  • I don't begrudge ON1 for doing what they're doing.  I don't believe that it's going to make their software gain significant market share, however.  Now that DXO is putting more effort with Nik and ...
  • It may be sound, but that doesn't mean people have to like it.  Had they added the plugins for twenty dollars more over the base price, that would have been fine.  As you said, there are few users ...
  • Created discussion thread ON1 Photoraw 2022 plugin capability
    It seems that ON1 has separated the original Photoraw product into a standalone and a plug-in package. At their website, you can buy Photoraw 2022 for around $80 US (for the standalone version). ...
  • Thank you for that info.  It's the same way in the U.S.  I object to the stratification that On1 is doing.  They were originally one product and now they split it into two.  Why not charge more ...
  • It's nice but I HATE the new strategy of separating the plug in functionality from On1 PhotoRaw.  I still have 2021 loaded and have 2022, but I hate the fact that they are making you buy the ...
  • I would like to have an A7C version of the upcoming A7IV (if the specs on that are correct).
