  2. Where we are now: The site is back up and running! The character set encoding issue has been fixed so old posts should now look ok. I am currently working on themes/skins etc and I will be deleting the temporary green skin very soon as it has many issues. I will do a very quick variation on the stock blue skin first just to get a light-grey background and san-serif font, and I will set this as default. Later this week I will hopefully add a professional third-party skin in pfm colours (life is way too short to do this crap myself, and I've found one I really like than needs next to no tweaking). We are getting there slowly...

  3. May I please request people check and update their email address if it is out if date. I ask as I’m getting countless bounce errors as the server fails to send notifications through etc. I’ll eventually figure out how to send these to a black hole somewhere, but it makes sense to address it at source as quite a few folk are obviously not getting the thread and conversations notifications they have set in their preferences.

  4. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

RIP Lightroom?

    Correct on both counts.

    In the 'explain your reasons for cancelling' box I just stated my refusal to update my OS to a later version just to use LR Classic. Still, all's done now and I wouldn't be surprised if some of the other PP designers will be looking, now more than ever, to poach LR users.

    That's terrible - not a good way of treating customers. I've personally got nothing against the subscription model, as long as the price stays reasonable and they don't ditch the 'classic' range of products.

    Having said that, I'm happy to see the development on the mobile front. Adobe were seriously falling behind other developers and it's good to have a credible offering from them (although I still prefer Snapseed)

    The problem is this - when you buy a paid for piece of software, the company must develop it and release a new version in a timely manner in order to maintain its revenue streams. With the subscription model the reverse is true, and they are under no pressure at all unless a competitor produces something better...

    I understand what you're saying and agree with it. However, I think the reality of the situation is that they are under immense pressure from their competitors. LR and PS are still my favoured desktop editing combination (not least because I rely on number of plugins for some of my workflows). Having said that, if something better came along, I would jump ship without any hesitation.

    The Nikon D850 appears to be supported in the new 6.13 update.

    I am waiting for the full version of Macphun (due out 16th of November) to see what that is like.

    Do you mean Luminar from Skylum?

    Yes. It seems they changed their name. Due out on the 16th. I have been using the Beta version though too many features are missing. Despite this I like the useability and things like the AI Enhancer. From my limited trials the noise reduction was pretty good too.

    anyone tried Luminar? I was just reading a thread on this subject on DPR and Luminar gets a mention.

    I have been playing with the Windows beta version (which supports Fuji RAW). The full 2018 version is out this week. Based on the limited beta I have ordered the 2018 version. The main thing it lacks is the cataloging feature that Lightroom is so good at. I'll probably have a more in depth view after I load the full version and get to try a few images.
