Thanks. I'm still here often I'm just a bit faded with age. :)

I did the deal after a couple of years of "making do" with PS Elements and LR4 for some time. I kept finding myself missing stuff that only PS could do and after making digital negatives in PS6 as part of a Pl/Pd printing workshop, I knew I was going to buy it one way or another.

I think it's gonna take about two days to download....

I'm getting LR, Bridge, Photoshop. Do I need any of the other goodies that come with the "$9.99 plus tax" a month?

I looked, and there is no WOW option for me. But then I've discovered that I don't really need it. :-)

never mind...I found it....

Doesn't Neat Image work in PsCC? I can't seem to get that plug-in to work...

Do you remember where the link is? I need to load Nik and Topaz and not sure how. Thanks!

I pulled the trigger but far from happy about rent only model - I would be far happier if you had some functionality after a year or something especially on the LR front since your sort of locked in.

For me... I have CS2 (yeah it's old but it's rarely used as I'm 95% in LR) and LR4, so figured it was worth while for my position - given I am overdue for a LR update that would cost me $75 anyway for just LR....... and so far LR has been an annual update for me. Will be funny to have a current PS - probably changed enough over the time :-)

I bought the bundle and I have already seen a few differences in the new Photoshop. And it seems quite faster than the CS6 version.

I agree, I felt the same.

it is simple, copy folders from the plug-in sub folder of existing CS6/CS5 to CC and restart CC. It would pick it up. You don't need to reinstall everything again!

Thanks!

Next question - was there something called "Content aware fill" and if so, where would I find it? Sort of like cloning on steroids?

With the Neat Image I just had to go back to the company and re-download the newest version...I don't use it often but it does come in handy now and then....Niks is amazing (DeFine)

Image>Fill>check the option for "content aware fill". It will then default to that unless you change it again. Shift+F5 is the keyboard shortcut.

I just paid and registered with this macbook pro, which I suspect may struggle - ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/55000-59999/57229/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1094141.png', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/55000-59999/57229/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1094141.png', '/') + 1) . '

but I did so because I should shortly be getting either a mac mini or an iMac which can be machine 2, innit.

some wise soul(s) like to tell me about the specs I need?

It runs better than I expected on my 2008 vintage regular MacBook w/ 4GB RAM (that's the max for the machine).

Like you, I'm looking at a new machine...probably a 27" iMac, which will be the "family" computer

Question for "o'l wise ones" (let's see who answers)

In the "past" when I was editing my files (photos) in Lr when I moved them to PsE10, Lr would come up with a prompt window - Edit Photo with Photoshop Elements, I've had "Copy with Lightroom Adjustments" checked, then I would move the picture over to PsE10. When it arrived in PsE10 it would be a .psd extension. Now that I have CC Cs/6 when it moves the picture there is no prompt screen and it moves the ".NEF" file over.

(I've been in the habit now for years to aways copy my BG layer. And I've still been doing just that.)

It concerns me that the .NEF file is coming over to Ps CC Cs/6. Am I working on the "original"? In the past the .NEF files couldn't be altered...will they now? OR should I have some kind of "prompt" screen coming up when I'm ready to move the picture over to Ps CC? I think I need to go to preferences to make my changes but to "what"?????

Not sure if I'm being clear enough here...

really - - no advice???

AFAIK, nothing will alter a RAW file. I could be wrong and someone will correct me if I am I guess. But my guess is that though it's bringing over your raw file for you to work from, at the point where you save it, it will have either a .jpg extension or a .psd extension. I work directly from my raw files in CS5, but when I save it in the end it has a .jpg extension and my raw file is untouched.

have they been validated in the past?

Yes. I've never had problems with validation. From their website...

When you use Camera Raw to make adjustments (including straightening and cropping) to a camera raw image, the image’s original camera raw data is preserved. The adjustments are stored in either the Camera Raw database, as metadata embedded in the image file, or in a sidecar XMP file (a metadata file that accompanies a camera raw file). For more information, see Specify where Camera Raw settings are stored.

After you process and edit a camera raw file using the Camera Raw plug-in, an icon appears in the image thumbnail in Adobe Bridge.

If you open a camera raw file in Photoshop, you can save the image in other image formats, such as PSD, JPEG, Large Document Format (PSB), TIFF, Cineon, Photoshop Raw, PNG, or PBM. From the Camera Raw dialog box in Photoshop, you can save the processed files in Digital Negative (DNG), JPEG, TIFF, or Photoshop (PSD) formats. Although Photoshop Camera Raw software can open and edit a camera raw image file, it cannot save an image in a camera raw format.

But I'm not using Camera RAW I'm using Lr for my RAW conversion...would that make a difference?? Sorry - I'm just nervous to enter my first picture using the editing software (PsCC) and find out it's buggered!!! I'm just trying to be sure.

When you select a RAW file in LR and choose "Edit in Photoshop" then subsequently save as a .psd or .jpg, both the untouched RAW file and the edited file will show up in your LR library.

If you edit the file in LR, a second image will not appear in your library, however. The image in your library will have a small +/- icon in the lower right corner, indicating it has been edited. Don't worry because LR stores your edits in a separate file and it only displays the effects of those edits in the program, if you right click on the file in your library, and you'll see an option to "show original" or something like that it will take you to the original, unaltered RAW file.

Hope this helps.

Yes, it does...I wasn't sure if I needed to change anything in my preferences in Lr or not. Because when it transfers over to Ps it come in as a NEF file instead of the way I'm used to it - a .pdf file.
