Epson Inkjet for real photographic work. The commercial ones are very reliable and the cost of Genuine Ink is acceptable for the quality.
But inkjet is ruinously expensive and far too slow for simple print work.
A Brother colour laser printer handes that. On my 2nd in 12 years. The first was a Dell badged but made by Brother job that was just an absolute indestructable tank for high volume print work. I replaced it with the most similar Brother model I could find when the print head died for the second time 10 years in (after I don't even know how many pages printed).
Per volume HP Ink (and toner) is more expensive than Dom Perignon. It doesn't taste as good but Dom Perignon just doesn't have the resolution.
I had to stay in the grey low ceilinged jail that is the MGM Grand while working a trade show last summer. I recall they were pimping a "Players Club" thing pretty hard on check in. I passed on the deal, but the sorts of details they are talking about here could be from that loyalty club...
My 4th floor room had a great view of a dumpster in an alley and was only slightly larger than the bed that filled it. Miserable place..then again, if you are going to Vegas they don't want you hanging out in your room...
Is locally thought of as "The Silicon Valley of the South"... Thanks to NASA, the Redstone Arsenal, and a lot of contractors associated with same.
Having lived in Huntsville, and in Silicon Valley....I can authoritatively say that Huntsville is more like the Milpitas of the South...or maybe Alviso...
ahhh..no. not in the Peoples Republic of California. Finding an endangered species on your land is a very bad thing that means you will likely never, ever be allowed to develop the land without extremely expensive mitigation.
I live just a bit north of Martins, and San Francisco Garter Snakes, Red Legged Frogs and Snowy Plovers have all teamed up with the local Granola chewers to ensure that nothing gets built on the coast...
I am struggling to see the relevancy of your comment. Unless Vinod was the arsehole at the car show, or your point is that some people are twats, and some twats drive (and more often tinker) with British built machinery. But twats have been seen driving big 'Merican 4x4s and Priuses as well.
I tried SmugMug for that very reason - and because it created pretty nice galleries for commercial images (think portrait and wedding photos).
It also theoretically possible to integrate those albums with online fulfillment labs such as Dale labs. The reason I abandoned them almost immediately and went with a competing service was that they tacked on a lot of extra cost for the convenience. While it more or less gets passed on to the end customer, the price delta was significant enough to prevent people from ordering as much, and I saw NONE of that extra revenue.
Other online services can be integrated into Lightroom, but the best service I found for this niche is a competing platform named ShootProof. I've been pretty happy with them for a couple years
Sure, you can learn PSP or the Gimp or whatever for photo editing, maybe blow the dust off of an olde copy of Quark for layout, use CorelDraw for vector graphics, Divinci for video post production maybe if you are an individual user, or FCP if you are a masochist. You’ll be hard pressed to find a suitable alternative to AfterEffects and few other tools. If you do creative work professionally you are likely part of both a team and a workflow and file interoperability, a relatively common interface and collaboration tools become much more significant than saving a few hundred bucks a year for software for a user., and will improve productivity in terms of time taken per task. Depending on the shop, that is less per seat than what is spend feeding the Creatives soy latte and vegan cheese. Adobe doesn’t really care about individual users, it’s the commercial shops that are driving that top line revenue.
That said, I bought a license for the very last non CC version, CS6 to avoid paying a yearly tax on the tools that get used daily. I don’t love Adobe at all, but they do build good tools.
