    Exactly...I have seen absolutely brilliant work by artists in all kinds of mediums: film, digital, watercolor, sculpture, etc. Why waste time trying to emulate something done better with another tool, be it a $20 camera, a block of marble, or a $700 computer program? Stop trying to make champagne from grape Nehi.

    Fine - what's the point of wasting so much energy bashing something "truly stupid"? I don't get it. It serves no purpose - other than as an attempt at validition of your point-of-view. If you're that insecure about your working methods, no amount of self validation through ridicule of another working method can really help - can it?

    One could also bash people who produce analog work that is merely replication of what's already been photographed 1,000 times before - with no new vision, personal interpretation, or vision. There is no point in that work either - yet, lots of it, apparently, gets done...

    You really should not bash people who are bashing people for bashing people who... no wait, hang on, I've lost track now... Drat... I know there was a point in there somewhere...

    Ho hum, Bob.

    Now we’re talking. It’s been a long time waiting – but I think that I’m finally ready to make the great leap to digital imagery.

    The results on their demo page were quite lacking. I didn't see much resemblance to various films anymore that this is a Ferrari

    I want to be sick!
    Ive been talking to people recently as some galleries here are exhibiting "digital cyanotypes" and "Digital Sepia toned" prints im sorry but NO NO NO!!! they are simply tinted inkjets!!!!! why is this crap happening where did this apathy come into play??? and how did such mis entitlement occur??? I am going to start going into some of these galleries and asking the curators how does the computers produce these cyanotypes? and have stern words with them for allowing such mis information to be put onto digital crap.

    Does anyone know if this software offers LensBaby-type photo mods? Just wondering... I think the software name is Faux-to-shop. Enjoy
