    Thanks.
    Jac,

    I wish I had an answer for you.... I'm using a Mac Intel Pro from mid 2010 (one of the later cheese graters). 24 Gigs RAM

    Don't know if that helps you...

    Re: Whats the verdict on Adobe CC?

    I think Jac is referring to the graphics processor. I've just signed up for a CC subscription and am on a steep learning curve with it. One of the things I discovered is that for these programs my graphics processor is limited. I have a Mac mini with a lower end AMD Radeon graphics card, which apparently limits some of the things that can be done, like 3D rendering. Fortunately I can live with that. I think Jac is suggesting a graphics card update may solve your problems.

    There are many better and simpler alternatives. Affinity that was mentioned before or Luminar. So my verdict is that it'll become a museum exhibit in the nearest future.

    It's terrific. It's the most used post production software for commercial work. It's incredibly powerful, and there are tons of great tutorials online.

    I have also been looking at the On1 product line.

    FYI, they have a free 30 day evaluation available that does not put any kind of watermark on the image you edit.

    The other problem, and the other reason I moved from LR/PS 6 to LR/PS CC, is that the older versions are incompatible with the newer camera RAW image files. You can use DNG Converter or a third party program to open newer files and save them as DNG files, but it is an extra time consuming step. For $10/month (two coffees) it is acceptable, though I still bristle and the subscription model.

    I am running a 2011 Mac Mini with a 27" Thunderbolt display. Speed is fine, and I haven't found anything I can't do with my images. I am not sure how or why I would use 3D rendering on my photos.

    Here is some info from Adobe on GPU and Photo Shop CC 2017 that may be of help.

    Even at $49.99 a month for the entire suite is a bargain. I use Ps, Illustrator, Premiere, Audition, InDesign, Acrobat Pro, Adobe Media Encoder, and Bridge all on a regular basis. For those who still *hate* renting their software - how many lease their cars, pay monthly fees for cell phone, cable and internet access. We can argue all we want about the merits - and the merits are almost all in Adobe's accounting department's favor, but if want to stay current with the latest software that runs on the latest operating systems, and given the fact that Adobe is not giving us any other options for using their software, we really don't have much choice. Yeah, you can make a principled stand against it but it won't help you in the end. Just another monthly fee among many others, most of which are more than Adobe's.
