Adobe announces ACR 8.2 and Lightroom 5.2 release candidates | Digital Photography Review

Adobe announces ACR 8.2 and Lightroom 5.2 release candidates | Digital Photography Review | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


Adobe has announced the latest 'release candidates' of Adobe Camera Raw and Photoshop Lightroom, adding support for ten cameras - including preliminary support for the Canon EOS 70D and Sony RX100 II. The release candidates of Adobe Camera Raw v8.2 and Lightroom 5.2 also fix some bugs introduced in the previous versions. ACR v8.2 acts only as a camera and lens profile update for users of Photoshop CS6. Both are available to download from the Adobe Labs site, with the usual reliability caveats about release candidates. A release candidate of DNG converter 8.2 is also available....

Camera Raw 8.1 | Adobe

Camera Raw 8.1 | Adobe | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


Camera Raw 8.1 is now available as a final release through the update mechanism in Photoshop CS6.  This release provides support for HiDPI capable displays, new camera and lens support and address bugs that were introduced in previous versions of Camera Raw.  Customers of previous versions of Photoshop can utilize DNG Converter 8.1 to receive raw file support for newly added cameras. Photoshop CS6 customers traditionally have received camera updates through Camera Raw 7.x releases.  This is the first time that we are providing camera support through a version of the camera raw plug-in that is a whole version number greater than the version of Camera Raw that shipped with a specific version of Photoshop. (Photoshop CS6 shipped with ACR7 and now we’re providing support to CS6 with ACR8.)  As mentioned here, this change allows us to be consistent with our past policy of providing raw support for currently shipping products.  However, when ACR8 is hosted by Photoshop CS6, it will not offer any of the new features described in Photoshop CC marketing materials for ACR8.....

 

Bugs Corrected in Camera Raw 8.1- Occasionally the Fill Light adjustment introduced artifacts. This only occurred when processing an image using the PV2010 process version.- When using the Red Eye removal tool, setting red eye darken to 100% would lighten the adjustment instead of darkening it.- Reduced the default amount of sharpening applied to images taken with the Fuji X100s camera.
New Camera Support in the Camera Raw 8.1- Hasselblad H5D-60
- Olympus PEN E-P5
- Olympus PEN E-PL6
- Phase One IQ260*
- Ricoh GR
- Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G6
- Panasonic LUMIX DMC-LF1

Adobe Creative Cloud Fail | Nasim Mansurov

Adobe Creative Cloud Fail | Nasim Mansurov | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

 

By now you have probably heard about Adobe’s decision to stop development of Adobe Creative Suite (which includes such software as Photoshop and Illustrator) and move to a completely different subscription-only model. In short, Adobe does not want to sell packaged versions of its software anymore and wants you to instead pay for select software packages or the whole Creative Suite on a monthly basis. For example, today you can purchase Adobe Photoshop CS6 for $599 and own the software, which means that you can install it on your computer and use it whenever you want without limitations. With the new Adobe pricing strategy, you will no longer be able to purchase Photoshop that way – you will have to get a $20 per month subscription for using Photoshop alone (or $50 for the whole Creative Suite). There will be no other option. Software will be delivered over the Internet and once you get it installed, it will make occasional requests over the Internet to Adobe.com to verify your subscription level. Creative Cloud will work the same way that CS6 works today, except it will require an active subscription. When traveling without any Internet connectivity, the software will work for a limited amount of time (something like 30 days) before ceasing to work and requiring you to connect to the Internet.Our readers might be wondering what we at Photography Life think about Adobe’s new pricing policy, so here is my personal take. I think this is by far the most arrogant and selfish decision on behalf of Adobe. While I actively use Photoshop, Illustrator and Lightroom software for my work, I am already considering alternatives at this point. Not because I find the pricing to be too high, but because I think what Adobe is doing is simply wrong. Read on to find out why.

.....

 

What Adobe should have done, is give its customer two options – a boxed version with an upgrade path, essentially continuing the Creative Suite line, and a choice to go to the cloud. People that would benefit from collaboration and other benefits of the cloud would choose a subscription model, while everyone else would stay happy with their “owned” copies of the software.

Lightroom 5 beta brings a raft of new features including offline editing | Imaging Resource

Lightroom 5 beta brings a raft of new features including offline editing | Imaging Resource | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

A little more than a year ago, Adobe released its most recent major update to Photoshop Lightroom -- the company's flagship photography workflow application -- after a two-month open beta program. Today, the company takes the wraps off a beta release of the followup, continuing a tradition of public beta that stretches right back to Lightroom's formative days. The latest Lightroom 5 betabrings several interesting new features, including a radial gradient tool, a more advanced healing brush and a clever automatic perspective correction tool. But for our money, the feature which stands out is support for offline image editing, or what Adobe calls Smart Previews.

If you're one of the many photographers who take advantage of Adobe's license terms allowing use of a desktop and laptop on the same Lightroom license, chances are you've hit a certain dilemma. You're out in the field with the laptop, yet you want to browse your existing catalog and perhaps tweak a few photos -- but you've not brought the catalog's contents with you. The laptop drive doesn't have enough storage space for all your photos, and you didn't think you'd need to carry your bulky external drives with you. Or perhaps you're not even using external drives -- maybe your catalog is shared across the network from your desktop machine. Either way, you don't have access to the files you need. That's the problem Smart Previews aims to solve. Lightroom 5 public beta can automatically generate reduced-resolution copies of your images on external drives and network shares, suitable for the smaller storage space available on your laptop. And it will let you edit these images just as if the files were online. Of course, some edits won't be meaningful on reduced-res previews. For example, you'll likely want to forgo tools like noise reduction and sharpening, where information at the pixel level is key. However, for many tools such as cropping, tweaking color and so on, that reduced-resolution file will still be enough to get the job done, or at least to get you in the ballpark while an editing idea is fresh in your mind. The clever bit happens when the offline media comes back online -- go back into the images, and your edits are applied to the originals automatically. This is very clever stuff, and something we have a feeling many photographers will welcome with open arms.....

Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator CS6 now support Apple’s high-res Retina displays | Imaging Resource

Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator CS6 now support Apple’s high-res Retina displays | Imaging Resource | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

 

For photographers, the latest-generation Apple MacBook Pro notebooks are mighty appealing thanks to their extremely high-resolution displays. All those extra pixels let you see more of your images on-screen at once without discarding the fine detail. Even if you fit your image to the screen, you're still looking at a full five megapixels of detail, more than double that provided by even the best MacBook Pro models from 2011. There's a catch, though. Your software has to support Apple's Retina HiDPI displays to take full advantage of all those extra pixels, and until now a key tool in the photographer's arsenal hasn't done so. Today, that changes, with the announcement by Adobe of an update to Photoshop CS6 that brings support for Retina displays, fulfilling a promise made last August. Retina support in Photoshop puts an end to blurry interpolation of images displayed in Photoshop, not to mention the surrounding buttons and icons that make up the user interface. Instead of a 1,440 x 900 pixel display that's been scaled to fit a 2,880 x 1,800 pixel screen, your images will take advantage of every screen pixel, and the surrounding UI elements will be sharper and easier on the eyes as well.

Lightroom 4.1 – RAW Conversion Issues With Fuji X-Pro1 | Todd Owyoung

Lightroom 4.1 – RAW Conversion Issues With Fuji X-Pro1 | Todd Owyoung | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

... for the most part, these smearing artifacts won’t show up in smaller prints and certainly not for online usage, but all the same my advice would be to hold off on important RAW conversions until Adobe addresses this issue. However, if you don’t mind exporting images and updating your images once a solution to this issue comes about, the fine detail missing in Lightroom 4.1 won’t been seen in smaller print sizes.

Yes. Part three. The previous posts about Demosaicing the Fuji X-Pro1 are here and here.

This post follows on from the previous two by showing how to get demosaicing that is, for practical purposes, as good as SILKYPIX, the best of the  Fuji X-Pro1 raw developers I tested in the previous posts.
