You know Adobe, you’re killing me. I mean it. Torture here!
Weeks ago I wrote you to let you know that at the last possible moment I didn’t pre-order CS5 because of a power outage. To add insult to injury, the money I had set aside for CS5 was used to purchase a new power converter in the Airstream, and to pay for the installation. Honestly, the power converter cost more than the CS5 upgrade, and it doesn’t do nearly as many things as CS5 does! Hmph!
Everywhere I look I hear about CS5. And I hear nothing but good stuff. Content aware fill? Oh yeah, that sounds so dang cool! Better HDR support? Lens correction, noise suppression, and more……oh man, here’s a moment when spending on the upgrade might not hurt my feelings……
But then there’s the matter of no cash on hand for the upgrade. All because I wanted power in the Airstream instead. Stupid electricity!
Well, I promised myself I wouldn’t walk down the path of temptation…..but I downloaded the trial version of CS5 and installed it at the gallery today (no power outages here). And this morning I spent some time playing with a few of the new features. And you know what I’ve learned???
You guys suck!
It’s an amazing upgrade. Tried out the content aware fill on several images and found myself laughing out loud! Not small laughs either. This was the enjoyment of my 8 year old self while running around with a plastic Millennium Falcon! So dang cool! Seriously.
Then I got around to toying with the HDR tool that you added into CS5. While I’m still a little new to HDR Pro, I think I can get the hang of it. I even spent a few minutes recreating a favorite image with the new tool. While I still like the Photomatix result better, I’ve only been working with CS5 for a few short hours.
Seriously, you guys really suck…….
Would you be willing to take a Paralax Power Converter in exchange for a CS5 upgrade for me? Please……..
Way to go on a great upgrade. I’ll play with it for the next month, and maybe, just maybe, if business picks up I can get Photoshop CS5. Why do I need electricity in the Airstream anyways????
Below you’ll find my first HDR attempt with Photoshop CS5 compared to the image I’d generated with Photomatix a year ago. Not the same, but I bet I could fine tune it……
I still like the Photomatix results better, but in time bet I can figure out the new CS5 option…….
