Re: Why it's time to move away from Lightroom

Yes, I agree. That is why I still pay for the LR/PS subscription. I bought ACDSee Pro 9 a few years ago and thought it was good. I also bought Aftershot Pro 1 a long time ago and thought it was fairly good too. Both were a lot easier to use and understand than darktable. I tried ASP 3 a couple of ye...

Re: Why it's time to move away from Lightroom

I have seen several recommendations for the series of darktable tutorials done by Bruce Williams. Here is the first one:

Which Canon are you using now? I used to have a 30D and 60D. Both were wonderful cameras.

Re: Tiny sensor revenge gallery thread!

Very much I began to think, and it is worth buying the Zeiss 16-35 lens, maybe for the money get the phone Huawei P30 Pro or Huawei P20 Pro, which one has optical zoom from Leica and 40mp? Although Xiaomi continues to amaze me... [ Nice photos! The future of Huawei is sort of cloudy at the moment. ...

I have not checked Rawtherapee for a long time. Apparently it now has local adjustments.

Re: Future of A mount

That reminds me of the 1960s, 1970s, and early 1980s. I would rarely see anyone else with a 35mm SLR or larger camera when I was out and about. Other people just had things such as a 126 Instamatic, 110 camera, or later the ubiquitous 35mm P&S cameras. Now the people who would use an Instamatic,...

Re: Let's post some panoramas

I have not tried those 360 degree websites. In 2002 I did make this 360 degree panorama using my Minolta D7i though. It is 21 vertical photos stitched together. I should probably redo it using current panorama software because it would probably be a bit better. President Johnson's Family Homestead, ...

Here is a new panorama I made this week in Utah outside Santa Clara. 5 raw shots with my Panasonic TX1 (ZS100/TZ100) stitched with Photoshop CC.

Recently we spent a couple of weeks in Hiroshima (been there quite a few times since 1985) and in the middle of that time we went to Kure for a couple of days. I have stopped there for just a few minutes several times while riding a ferry for 3 hours going to Hiroshima, but I have never stopped to ...

Re: Why it's time to move away from Lightroom

I found this wonderful discussion about darktable that includes developers:

https://discuss.pixls.us/t/darktable-speed-in-general-and-when-using-two-monitors/12002/7

It is about speed, usability, etc. See the posts by aadm and aurelienpierre, in particular.
