Re: Thinking ahead

I guess what I'm looking for is something to completely replace all my film gear. One camera to carry around all the time, and another to do more studious stuff with. Fujifilm is the only system out right now that has such a set-up, but there are still some glaring compromises. Plus their lenses are...

Re: Password

I try to create a pattern with my password so that hopefully I won't forget it (each place I log in gets a unique one), but that failed me tonight, and I had to drag out the file book to find it. You're right, George, this old business can be a bit daunting at times.

Re: Corel Draw Suite - monthly subscription

So, Lightroom is Photoshop Lite? Even that way is still two more steps than having one program do it all. I'll do some more research before I jump at something, but Affinity is the front runner for now.

Re: Corel Draw Suite - monthly subscription

You know, I've never understood opening up an image in Photoshop, importing it into Lightroom to make changes, then exporting it back to Photoshop to put on the finishing touches. They make it sound so freaking easy, but it's three steps to do what I do in Elements only. I don't get it.

Re: Thinking ahead

Film camera world is too complicated for me already to enter the digital world :) Yeah, it drives me nuts sometimes trying to figure out which direction to go. :crazy: I'll be looking for a lens for one brand of camera, but then will come across something for a different brand that I should jump on...

Re: Thinking ahead

I'm just not a Fuji kind of guy, Graham. ;-) PF Okay, I've done some thinking about that comment, Graham. The current situation got me to thinking just what I want in a digital camera, and some new models have come out since then. I almost bought an X100F until I found out the store was trying to p...

Re: Corel Draw Suite - monthly subscription

I'm going to drop PS Elements and switch to Affinity, that is if Verizon can get their act together and fix my DSL line properly. PF Have you made the switch, Phil? What attracts you about Affinity. Not yet, James. It took Verizon until the middle of last week to fix my line, and I haven't caught u...

Re: Postcard circle event.

Hang in there, Julio. I hope your country doesn't get the ants-in-the-pants syndrome and try to open up too early like they are doing here in the States. I'm guessing Graham wasn't able to get any cards out or in since early April.

That's good to know. I'll have to look into that.
