Elements/lightroom, both are presented as much the same and if I mentioned only the one it was because i was talking in general rather than in the particular, a distinction that most intelligent people can appreciate. Again, why should anybody bother with a 30 day trial if they are not informed or in anyway convinced by the initial sales blurb that it would be worth their while? They hardly make that option obvious anyway and we are all busy people.
The information is plainly presented and if you can't recognise it, then it is amusing that you should sling verbally at me as you did, don't you think? (Perhaps my punctuation was incorrect there - I'll leave it for you to determine).
How much more obvious should it be than to have a large, bright button there for you to click?
But hey, what do I know, I'm only a potential customer after all.
Perhaps you're right. Perhaps you're not really a potential customer. It doesn't really matter. You've already elevated yourself. You're right and they're wrong.
I wonder if you would care to reflect upon that paragraph for it doesn't read as being as decisive or informed as you may feel, but rather pompous, elitist (snobbish even) and sorely detached from reality, well reality as found it in rural Ireland anyway. As a UK based friend who has worked as a photographer for many years put it to me "The game is over". There is no longer the demand for professional photographers that there was and I doubt that there ever will be again. I've been busy teaching myself new and associated skills because I see so many in the trade struggling or going out of business. I never was a full time pro, could never afford to be, but it has been an enjoyable little sideline in the past and I have always considered 'professionalism' in any craft as being a state of mind rather than a dependence upon it for a living.
It read exactly as I intended. Whatever you choose to read into it is your choice and my dilema, but ever was the written word, no?
That the demand has changed does not mean that there is no more demand. Furthermore, photographers are only a portion of the market for which the product is intended.
Yes I have left much unsaid but there is only so much time I can spare for this sort of ultimately meaningless argument, so fire away fellows, but do try to be original at least.
Why would we invent something new for you to savour when it's the same, tired, doggerel with which we are presented? You didn't ask an honest question. You had an agenda. The responses are honest, but don't heel to your dogma.
I was over it before it started.
