  • This is just wrong.   There's very significant stitching going on the iPhone.  There's absolutely no way you are holding the camera PERFECTLY aligned to the pixel when you move the camera.  So, ...
  • Well said. Touché :-D:-D
  • Except processing a lot of images can't possibly fit in the memory cache. That's why Adobe products do benefit from faster DRAM (and a system that can use it). FYI, the DRAM speed from my new ...
  • I don't know where you get the notion that RAM speed is irrelevant.  Something like Adobe Lightroom or Photoshop are influenced the most by CPU speed and memory speed. If you're trying to buy into ...
  • I guess it depends a bit on how often you upgrade your system.  I generally upgrade my system every 4-5 years and I've never chosen to keep my previous RAM sticks, not because of the capacity or ...
  • Export is just an easier thing to measure (it's hard to measure precisely responsiveness while editing).  The real reason for the upgrade has to do with responsiveness and efficiency while ...
  • Crashplan looks like a nice set of features from perusing their website.  $10/mo is twice as expensive as Backblaze though so you have to decide what you really need, I guess.
  • I guess it depends a bit on how much storage you need. I have 4TB backed up with Backblaze so it's a lot better deal for me at $50/yr than the Google storage prices. I do use Google for ...
  • Probably because it's the only way that makes any business sense for a software company.  You don't get a lifetime set of camera support upgrades for a one-time fee.  That's just a lousy business ...
  • I think you'd have a better chance at getting someone to help if you showed the actual image and showed what you're actually trying to accomplish. Even more likely if you include a high res image ...
  • I rather doubt you will find ANY online backup service that charges a flat fee for unlimited storage that will allow you to backup an external drive and they will keep that backup forever even ...
  • What is the point of that test?  It is known that at least a mid-range graphics card helps speed up some operations in Lightroom which is what I have in my system.
  • This is not true that any file left unchanged is removed. Unchanged files that continue to exist on your connected rives are retained in the backup repository for as long as you retain those files ...
  • The paid version is not required for that.  I have LastPass (free version) on my laptop, my desktop and my Android phone (access to the same passwords from all three).  It used to be that the ...
  • I haven't tried those on my new system yet. Sounds like a good thing to do when I get some time. EDIT: It appears their Photoshop benchmarks are based on the current CC versions which I don't have ...
  • I'm not sure what exactly you're asking.  Full resolution RAWs can be edited efficiently just fine in Lightroom.  They are a breeze with this system, but worked OK in my 5 year old system too.  I ...
  • I'd recommend Backblaze .  Completely automated cloud backup of your whole PC (all your drives) with unlimited storage for $50/yr.  I have 3TB backed up and have been using them for almost 10 ...
  • Yes, that is a nice feature of the paid versions.  I just wanted CAcreeks to know that the free version is very, very capable so $48/yr is not a requirement to benefit from a product like LastPass.
  • I don't know where you get the $48/yr for LastPass?  Personal is free.  Premium is $2/mo ($24/yr).  Family (for up to 6 users in the family) is $4/mo ($48/yr). I know a number of people using the ...
  • You obviously have an axe to grind here for reasons we apparently don't understand, but there's nothing foolish with moving beyond an OS that was launched 9.5 years ago.  Moving to Windows 10 is ...
