    Adobe haters, I have a question for you

    I agree with all you said, and yes for people who only need a "final" product then it generally doesn't matter what software was used to produce it, but even then their can be bizarre compatibility issues.

    Adobe haters, I have a question for you

    I think the C1 situation is complicated. When I bought my perpetual license for C1 the cost was twice the cost of LR, and that was before C1 had a database as it was only competing with the ACR component of Photoshop. The main reasons that people bought C1 was for the quality of the raw...

    Adobe haters, I have a question for you

    Are there large scale users using Affinity products? My University was very reluctant to move away from using anything that wasn't considered the "industry standard", and in terms of my consultancy business I found it very difficult to move away from industry standard software because of...

    Adobe haters, I have a question for you

    Assuming this is in response to my post, it's interesting comparison of different experiences. I've used LR since before version 1 (ie I started with the beta of Version 1) but never especially liked it and although I wanted to use PS, but never felt I could afford it I was using C1 long...

    Adobe haters, I have a question for you

    This is of course correct, but I was really picking up on your point "...perhaps I should be grateful?" to suggest that the wider choice of software while keeping Adobe in the market was an overall win-win situation for the industry (including the consumers of their products) Certainly as a...

    The virus. PPE. Part 2

    Sorry, I obviously misunderstood the point you were making, but most things are more complex than simple claim and counter claims, but then I also don't see the two points you made as being contradictory. I personally haven't seen or recognise the NHS you describe, and what I have read has...

    The virus. PPE. Part 2

    Isn't that evidence that the NHS "has" been overwhelmed , why delay these procedures and build up future problems for themselves, if they had the capacity to deal with them alongside dealing with covid.

    It's easily done :-)

    The virus. PPE. Part 2

    Unless, I'm being very dim (which has been known), those numbers indicate 0.56% of people in Scotland (and Wales) have Covid, 1% in NI and 0.77% in England. That makes the percentage of people in Scotland with Covid lower than the percentage of people in England with Covid. How does this show...

    Adobe haters, I have a question for you

    Just for clarity the text you bolded is incorrect, you do lose some features (including the main editing tools), but Adobe still allow you to access and print your edited photographs and use the catalogue. Full details have been provided in several posts in this thread And unless you "choose"...

    So amazingly a win-win for the photography processing software industry :-)

    Adobe haters, I have a question for you

    Yes, I agree that if you only want LR, its less good value as the stand alone license was relatively cheap (but the sub is still cheaper than any other Adobe program, we photographers got a special deal, compared to all their other customers). I'm not that fussed at having LR, even though I...

    Adobe haters, I have a question for you

    I'm sure there are, but my suggestion was that they were picking up more customers than they were losing, and making more profit, so I can't see them being all that concerned about those they have lost.

    Adobe haters, I have a question for you

    Except, hasn't the opposite happened and user numbers increased. I know I've seen numbers for this but can't find any now :-) I'm certainly a new user since the subscription because I never felt I could afford to pay for Photoshop outright. As an aside, according to Jeff Schewe, less than...

    The virus. PPE. Part 2

    I don't know why the press are calling it a circuit breaker as it isn't and last I heard from a Nicola Sturgeon briefing was that they were trying to avoid returning to a complete lockdown (circuit breaker) but that locally stricter measures may need to be introduced. But, whatever the papers...
