Alamy.com / Re: Have sales plummeted for all or just me?
« Last post by ravens on Today at 04:34 »
April and May have been very frustrating. Any improvements, anybody? What do you think is going on with Alamy?

Ah yes... good idea! Ok, sounds ok. I ain't buying a Mac but if I was then it sounds pretty good.

Yes, I can accept the business decision to reward exclusivity with a higher percentage. That is a very rational thing to do, from a business standpoint. You are exclusive to Pond5, the business, not the customer.

But I can't stand 46 minutes of bull**** along with the artist testimonials... I mean, just be honest and straightforward. It pays off.

Trying to spin it as being exclusive to the customer is just absurd.

The P5 "exclusive" program is exclusive in no other way than you exclusively giving them money. ;)

Haha :D

So they don't preserve custom P5 prices on AS? Hilarious.

That P5 live "Artist Town Hall" was the most hipocrytical, misleading and insincere I've ever seen in microstock. They were just straight up lying and it was so obvious.

Even Getty wasn't that fake in their exclusive pitch, not covering it with "we care about the artist the most, we are saviors of the industry bla bla bla".

also in ACR. i haven't done any adobe tutorials, how does it differ to Clarity exactly?

Texture adds contrast to small details.

Clarity adds contrast to larger details and mostly the midtones (similar to adding Unsharp Mask at a medium radius with the Luminosity blend mode).

Dehaze adds contrast (and saturation) to even larger parts.

Sharpening adds contrast to the smallest details.

Each slider is basically Unsharp Mask with a different radius, but done with more intelligent/adapting algorithms so the results are/can be better at extreme settings.

75% faster than what? If it's a dual core 2012 machine with 4GB of RAM, then that's considerably less impressive than it being 75% faster than some recent, top spec, next best model.

Straight from Adobe:

"Photoshop generally runs faster with more processor cores, although some features take greater advantage of the additional cores than others. However, youll get diminishing returns with multiple processor cores: The more cores you use, the less you get from each additional core. Therefore, Photoshop doesnt run four times as fast on a computer with 16 processor cores as on a computer with four cores. For most users, the increase in performance that more than six cores provides doesnt justify the increased cost."

You might see a nice boost with an eGPU, if you don't want to upgrade your entire computer.
