  • BTW, lest you think I am an Adobe hater, nothing could be further from the truth.  I have used and admired Photoshop v3 to CS6 and LR 1 through LR6 and currently own Acrobat Pro.  My problem is not ...
  • It is not an Adobe phobia issue, it is a matter of choice.  Under the subscription model the consumer is forced into upgrading ad infinitum irrespective of whether he does or does not want to use ...
  • I went from LR 6 to C1,11.  I really like what C1 does out of the box, but C1 is expensive and there a several stealthy controls.  The controls work great but it is frequently hard to find them.
  • Ditto. Except I used PS3 through CS6 and now use Capture One 11. AP has some great video tutorials. In order to increase my ability to recall the "solution" shown in the video, I generally ...
  • "Mislaid" is a euphemism for they are really not motivated to help or they don't have an answer.  In my experience, where the problem is simple they jump on it immediately.  On the other hand, ...
  • I am using a mid-2010 Mac Pro and I am not experiencing that problem.  WRT your comment regarding Phase one deafness, I too have experienced a similar situation, not the same problem, but a ...
  • Regarding your comment, "Why Adobe does not abandon this subscription model is a mystery to me as it makes no business sense." Sadly, from a vendor perspective it does make sense. Under the old ...
  • Thanks for your comments and suggestions. landscaper1 Regarding the vignetting, I am guilty, I guess that I applied too much (-.69) while I was processing the image.  There was no vignetting when ...
  • Shot this several years ago, just got around to reprocessing in C1. This is just down the river from where the British landed to begin their assault on Washington during the War of 1812.  After ...
  • There are numerous 10% discounts for C1.  If you decide to go that direction wait until November/December for v12 to be released.
  • GIMP is powerful tool and it is definitely cost effective. I was a long term PS user (PS3 through CS6) and elected to go the Affinity Photo route.  Affinity was relatively easy to learn after ...
  • Regarding the use of DEET, "Oils and chemicals that seem innocuous since your camera can get into contact with them on a daily basis are another danger. Believe it or not, DEET, a substance ...
  • Are you suggesting that Adobe, et al are not "money hungry"? All businesses owe it to their investors to return a profit.  You, as the consumer have options, if you believe the product is too ...
  • Thank you for the suggestions
  • Created discussion thread Humming-bird photography heaven
    I just returned from a visit to the Santa Fe (New Mexico) Botanical garden.  They have a particular bush there (Humming-bird mint) that was alive with hummers.  The good news was there was ample ...
  • Thank you.  It is fun photographing these guys as they go through the chutes. The son of a friend of mine is active in white water kayaking (not like this guy) and he posted a copy of the image on ...
  • I too have a problem with video tutorials , especially if I do not regularly employ the technique that i just "learned".  So, I use a process where I watch a video, stop it, using the space bar, ...
  • I think that I found it here: https://learnandsupport.getolympus.com/sites/default/files/media/files/2018/08/Olympus_Wildlife_Guide_0.pdf
  • cool!!!  Thank you
  • I had one a few months ago where the caller ID was AppleCare, and when I hit redial it went to AppleCare but they had no idea what I was talking about.  The phishers obviously spoofed the ...
