Well, the UI thing usually has to do with workflow. Obviously, Tiffany is Cocoa. That alone, makes a few things simpler. Which is why there are competitive aspects in that respect. Yes, there is a lot of power, in both apps. Please, don't "overlook" the UI importance, that's one of the reasons why we're on macs, remember? Again, TIFFany has a lot to offer there, but even with humble Seashore, i select with the magic wand hit delete and voila, a selection is gone. I'm on to the next thing. I have the option to go beyond the "simple" is there and i can tweak the tools parameters. TIFFany is a tweak Master! Well, so is PSCS.... PE is nothing. It's very entry level. PS CS is a pro level app. I'd say, TIFFany was a pro level app. So, If you can, let's compare these two apps. TIFFany is end of lifed, but the source hasn't been released. Seashore is nowhere near the level of TIFFany, but, it loads in 10 seconds. This already has some buzzing. We'll see how it goes, as more features are added.
PSCS has a lot of power, can work with a great deal of plug ins, and has a great development, and user base. The only app that seems to come close to some of the effects in some of its more rudimentary plug ins is Intaglio. Has any one done anything like the flamingpear.com plug ins for Tiffany, or with TIFFany? Please, show me. I'd really, like to see. What about EyeCandy solutions? You may say... "well, those things can be reproduced in actions in TIFFany". Where can I download them. As a User, a designer, I need it to happen yesterday, for my clients' sake, my company's sake and for my job... no my career's sake. Can anyone offer Tips to use TIFFany as is done with Photoshop User, MacDesign, Digital Art, MacAddict.... MacWorld................MacHome? ...er, PCWorld?
When we compare, these are some of the things that have to be touched on. What about Corel or even PhotoLine or Graphic Converter, which can use PS plug ins. Corel is an "industry standard" for many sign shops. they have their own CorelDraw as well as Painter etc... they can use Illustrator Plug Ins.
Then again, there's Core Image. But, alas... they may all tap Core Image's power. You have to keep the end user in mind. They, are your customers. And many...i'd even say most.... (definitely, not all) aren't morons. People make their choices. Let's see why.
(i love the way i get a little "button" in the scroll bar to import this text with Omniweb! ...er, didn't notice it anywhere else.. i'll be looking!) By the way, this isn't an "argumentative" post. I just am thoroughly, intrigued by this topic, and by the previous discussion. Please, let's do go on. This is how work get's done. By the way, I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE TIFFany's shared Actions! our should i say CAFFEINE software's shared actions! Cool. I think these are what Core image is.... so, I'll love them in Tiger. so, is Core Image the upgraded Tiffany UI?
