Additionally, I'd love to hear if anyone has photography-related alternatives!
Lightroom 5 is still available for one-time purchase, but I'm not crazy about paying $150 for software that is 3 or 4 years old.
I've heard some good things about Capture One Pro. Does anyone here have experience with it or an alternative?
This is among the best pieces of marketing I've seen—the short film is spectacular! Talk about telling a story!
I'm a fan of the graphics on this page. They do a good job showing what the autopilot can see and do.
Personally, I wish we would go back to the old tagging system that required Site Design: to actually appear with a site design tag. Too many stories have the incorrect tag. That or people are tagging them to be more visible.
I think it actually may make sense to get rid of many of the tags—Site Design, Ask, Show and AMA are the only ones I find important.
Interestingly enough, had they just done that with the new Macbook Pros, I probably would have bought one.
If this is what vanilla is, I'll want more.
If you've been thinking about moving away from Facebook, but can't seem to pull the trigger—I'd suggest uninstalling it from your phone.
A few benefits:
Caveat: You can no longer view messages on Facebook mobile. If you do have a message just go to http://mbasic.facebook.com/ to view them.
This looks fine on a retina screen. On anything else the text is completely illegible.
Something to consider when shipping low-contrast designs.
This should not have the Site Design tag—that's reserved for showing off new or interesting sites, not individual articles.
One of the reasons I gravitated towards design—as opposed to engineering—was because I felt it would be more difficult for software to replace designers.
Not to long ago I read an article about an architecture firm that built a piece of software to help it design office spaces. It was fed a certain requirements: boundaries, desks and more. The software developed hundreds of different layouts.
The architect picks the ones they think will work best, feeds the software more parameters and gets another collection of layouts. This happens over and over until a solution is found.
I'm not entirely sure what the future of product design is, but I think we will see something similar to this. Perhaps, instead of a team of designers only a handful will be needed to iterate on features.
