  1. Thank you. 👍 I take it that the plugins work anyway, even though the status is shown as "unknown"?
  2. Just wondering, but... is it normal that "only" 2 of the Nik collection plugins appear to be working in APhoto?
  3. So.. i didn't find them in the main toolbar, and i didn't find them in the menus... I guess i should dig a hole somewhere, and bury myself in it.
  4. I'm ashamed now that i never noticed those... i expected auto-corrections to be in one of the menus, like they are in PS Elements. Thanks a lot for the tip! Back to school for me now, and to see what i also missed in the software.
  5. Right, but, why not just implement those as factory defaults, instead of making the user do the job? My point was about comfort, as that's what makes a software... well... more comfortable. Apart from that, i really don't see where APhoto should have some auto corrections like PS Elements has. Maybe i just don't know where to look.
  6. Strange... i have no idea why that is happening. Works fine here. That said, Serif should definitely improve the batch processing. For example, i sorely miss a option to save the processed files with a file name extension like "IMG_3367_processed". That way, you could save into the same folder, without overwriting the existing files. I can also imagine that some generic auto corrections like sharpening, auto colour, or auto contrast could be added. Even Photoshop Elements has that.
  7. As this is the first update for me: Can i just install this over my existing installation, and it will update it?
  8. TBH, the least "cool ideas" come from communities, but from people who know the market, and who know what the professionals want. The "community" in most cases has no idea about that.
  9. The last "official" update for APhoto was pretty much half a year ago... apart from, as has been mentioned, the beta updates.
  10. Well, it isn't called the "Pixel" Persona for nothing. Sorry, had to.
  11. Ah... well, that's a great way to test the "waters" then (the family sharing).
  12. By all means demo it thoroughly before switching. Nobody here can tell you which features you need, and whether APhoto can replace Photoshop for you.
  13. The question is whether or not the missing features really have been planned. Of course, i agree. I don't think a software will ever be "complete", but, yeah, there's definitely the one or the other pretty vital thing i still am missing in APhoto, which is the only one i own, apart from PagePlus.
  14. ... for taking as much time as it is needed to get Publisher ready, and for not pushing a unfinished version, and also pushing the 1.7 updates for Photo and Designer. Really not natural in times where many companies need to account for "I want the new version now!!!" customers, who have no patience, and then complain about buggy and unfinished products, when the companies give them what they want. Really wished that was more common. Devs should take all the time a software needs before releasing it, to make sure it's rock solid, and has all the features which were planned.
  15. It's things like the one described in the OP, which still made me keep Photoshop Elements 13 installed... i mean, seriously. This is a must have feature, to easily be able to stroke the contour of the selection. I really think that should be added to APhoto as quickly as possible. Edit: The Ellipse tool works perfectly though.
  16. Nice catch. Actually, i'm watching his match vs. Judd Trump right now on Youtube.
  17. Oh come on... the devs are way more responsive than other devs in this business. Try to get some Adobe, or Corel dev on the line. Good luck.
  18. I bought this a while ago to output PDF's from Word (which has very few features, and a bad image quality, when it comes to PDF export...): https://www.tracker-software.com/product/pdf-xchange-standard Does everything i need, can't speak for you of course, might miss something.
  19. About the point whether or not Mac or Windows users are "hurt" by a potential Linux version: Yes, of course it would hurt existing users, because money and effort would have to be redirected towards a Linux version. It would also hurt Serif's business in the long run, and probably raise product prices.
  20. Ok, so now that you've said that the most relevant things are irrelevant, what's left there to argue about? For Serif, the only thing that matters is how many people would buy their software. Even with $500.000 crowdfunding (which is a total laugh... ridiculous to believe they'd get that for a native Linux version), they'd still have to sell their software to the Linux people.
