    Photoshop Died - Is there a cheaper alternative?

    If you're considering Affinity, I'd also suggest trying Photoline. It doesn't look as pretty, but it's arguably more powerful (and more mature) than Affinity, and is a similar price. It's been around for a long time and is very well thought of. I'd download trial versions of both and see...

    "Panasonic G series" Owners Thread

    A vast improvement? My G80 has a great viewfinder, so the G9 must be pretty amazing in that case. Just to check - you're not thinking of the GX80 rather than the G80?

    Adobe CC - Stopping the direct debit

    Unless Adobe are flouting the law, that's not the case (or it wasn't when I tried to cancel a couple of years ago). According to Adobe, the 14 days cooling off period only applies when you first sign up. On an automatic renewal, the penalties apply (i.e. have to pay half the remainder of the...

    Sony RX100

    A few from Wickham Festival in August - I was impressed with the low light ability of my Mk VI (ISO noted below): ISO1250 ISO5000 ISO2500 ISO6400 ISO6400 (and boosted a little in post) Full gallery here

    Sony RX100

    Agreed - I've never known a camera to overwrite existing images.

    Sony RX100

    I have one and it makes the camera less awkward to handle. It's still not great (mostly down to the size and surface finish), but definitely an improvement.

    Grey Vs Used. Am I missing something?

    Bear in mind that while bodies/kits are not liable for import duty, they are liable for VAT (which is the bulk of what you pay).

    "Panasonic G series" Owners Thread

    Small lenses that go as wide as 12mm? That's a much bigger consideration for me than the focusing ring (I barely use them these days, especially in wider lenses).

    I wouldn't buy from that seller regardless, given the feedback rating of 96.9%

    Now convert your JPEGs to RAW!

    I'm not sure where the hostility is coming from? To address your specific point - yes, we do know that the process cannot precisely recover the original RAW data gathered from the camera (which was all my analogies were trying to demonstrate). I'm not guessing or trying to debase the work...

    Now convert your JPEGs to RAW!

    If you know anything about audio, try this analogy. You can rip a track on a CD to, say, a. wav file (lossless) or a 128k mp3. Now you can convert the mp3 to a. wav file, but that's not remotely the same as ripping to. wav in the first place. Or a more extreme example, but just as valid IMHO -...

    Stay with Adobe or break the ties and move on?

    For anyone considering Affinity Photo, I'd strongly recommend also checking out Photoline. It's a very mature and well supported product, a similar price, and at least as capable. It looks slightly 'old fashioned' next to Affinity, but I'm not sure that's a bad thing. I ran trials of both and...

    TP2.0 Forum upgrade

    Yes, that's what I was curious about :)

    TP2.0 Forum upgrade

    As others have said, it's better now, thanks. I'm curious, however, why the clicked and unclicked links are the same colour?

    TP2.0 Forum upgrade

    On the neutral theme, the clicked and unclicked look the same as each other, and barely any different to the normal text :(
