Re: Adobe LR - no more updates - options?

For what it’s worth. I browsed a copy of Amateur Photographer yesterday and Affinity Photo is their Product of the Year. I use Affinity after years with Photoshop, it’s more than good enough for...

I'm about to make a pitch to hold an exhibition to be located in an area where the potential exhibits have been captured. To this end, I'll probably create a small web site as part of the pitch and...

Re: Street Photography are there any exceptions
