Since I upgraded to Lightroom Creative Cloud subscription-based applications my Nik Software plugins have been working flawlessly. Right click on an image, go to "Edit In" and the full list of available plugins was presented. Last weekend, however, I noticed that all, with the exception of Color Efex Pro for some reason, had disappeared from the Edit dialogue box. I immediate suspected foul play involving a big dose of housekeeping done the previous day.
Mike has been obsessing about notebooks and pens again. Here he has been scouring the ample shelves of Berlin’s KaDeWe department store.

My three-year-old 11in MacBook Air has what was once considered a commodious disk—all 256GB of it. But these days, especially with large RAW files, it really isn’t that much. I had taken my eye off the ball and, of course, the day of reckoning had to happen while I was away from home on my Greek island. Ever since I arrived last Wednesday, Dropbox had been churning along, stretching the Air’s processor to the limit, and first reported “downloading file list” and then “syncing files”: All pretty normal stuff except that with my glacial 1GB broadband, the procedure was taking days rather than hours.

For over five years I have been paying for Evernote premium access and have tried to love Evernote for what it is--a full-featured note and storage application that does almost everything well. At the same time, though, I have dabbled with the old Apple Notes, Simplenote, nvALT and several other plain-text note applications. Synchronisation between iPad, iPhone and Mac has always been top of my features list.
