Photo Geek Weekly Episode 44 – Instant Gratification

2

On this episode of Photo Geek Weekly, Don is joined by the delightfully wise Andy Ihnatko to discuss photo industry trends towards instant gratification with little or no editing, along with the next steps for companies like Canon, Yongnuo, and even RED. Finally our late-breaking discussion on the first round of “improvements” to Flickr and what that means for its users.

  1. Hi Don,

    I enjoyed this episode of Photo Geek Weekly very much.

    As you were talking with Andy about post-processing application and you mentioned that you would like to move away from the Adobe subscription scheme, have you tried Serif’s Affinity Photo program? (//affinity.serif.com/en-gb/photo/desktop/)

    I use it for over a year and must say that it is damn good for the price and it is not a subscription application. They do have an iPad version out as well and what I have heard it is pretty good too.

    Regards,
    Oliver

    • Thanks for the suggestion Oliver! I tried it when it was first released, seemed very functional (on the desktop, I don’t do any real editing on mobile platforms). I haven’t revisited it since, but that doesn’t mean I’m not happy it’s out there. Every piece of software that puts pressure on Adobe is a good thing for all of us. 🙂

      Thanks for listening!
