Glenn, here is a highlight page. I haven't tried it yet, (downloaded the CC version yesterday), but the healing brush is suppose to be really good.

The advanced healing brush alone is worth the price of admission: it's one more thing LR provides that means you don't have to go to Photoshop. On top of that there is the new integration feature with Lightroom Mobile and a new, improved rendering process.

Sold! Good timing too cause I just ran out of HD space and need to build some new storage. A good time to remember how to work on computers!

While I enjoy seeing the photos you guys post on FB, it is like a thumbnail preview. I can't wait to see them on the big screen here on FM's MA2A! Great show guys!

For anyone who might not be aware of this, eCost has the small Wacom Intuos 5 tablets at half-price, just $120:

While I'm sure this probably means there's an Intuos 6 about to come out, these tablets are awesome and I think this is a great deal.

I've thought about getting a tablet for a while, but I'm not convinced that my Photoshop skills are advanced enough to benefit.

Right now I just use a mouse. I find it most frustrating when I'm using a lasso tool to do a cutout, and sometimes if I'm using the spot healing brush. But otherwise it doesn't bother me much.

I don't use a brush for adjustments at all, although it is probably something I need to learn.

When is a tablet most useful?

Mark, I am not a expert or anything, just a casual user who likes the technology. Anyway, I find when doing selections, I don't have to zoom in as far for critical selections when using the pen tool. When using a brush, the same goes, but also I can control the size and flow on the go, so to speak. I 'think' I have more control with the pen tool than using my finger on the Mac Book Pro track pad (I don't have a mouse). BTW, I find my finger on the track pad is as accurate as the mouse, if not better.

What I would like to have would be the small pad with the wireless. I think that would be ideal for travel.

@ Wrei, the wireless can be added on at any time. No big deal, it's something like $35 or $40 and just pops in.

@ Mark, I can't tell you about the benefits to those who already know how to do things. I bought mine in order to help me learn how to do better, with less grief and less effort. I spend so little time on photography that I still have trouble using it, but I definitely prefer retouching with a pen to a mouse now.

A sad but necessary end to an inglorious chapter in Blue Angels and U.S. Navy history. I guess the lessons of the Tailhook scandal were lost on Capt. McWherter.

Weird goings on concerning Amazon and Drobo. I wanted to order another Drobo 5D with 5x4TB hard drives. I could have saved $100 by installing the drives myself, but Amazon would only sell me four of them (they imposed a limit of four drives per customer). So I ordered the 5D with the drives already installed. The package arrived on Monday, but when I opened the box I found a 5D shell with no hard drives in it. I checked the order: yep, I ordered and paid for a Drobo 5D with 5x4TB hard drives. I checked the box it came in: yep, the box said it contained a Drobo 5D with 5x4TB hard drives pre-installed. I checked again: nope, there were no hard drives in the Drobo case, and no hard drives anywhere else in the big shipping box, either.

So I arranged to return this useless Drobo; Amazon claimed they would send me a replacement right away, and wouldn't charge my account again unless my return didn't reach them by July 2. But today, the status of the replacement order went from a delivery estimate of tomorrow to a new window of July 8 - August 11.

I have a bad feeling about this...

I think you have to file this unfortunate situation under the heading "You Can't Go Home Again"

Personally, I can't imagine the stress McWherter was under on his second tour to come in and salvage the season after the previous CO screwed the pooch so badly. I can kind of understand the notion of "wanting to belong" because it was NOT his team anymore.

Maybe he didn't rule with enough iron in his fists, but frankly, I'll take a little "Frat House" over the potential for four or six furrows in the earth.
