So I read it and started to move on and then realized your decisions here might mean I'd have to find another way to learn not only the lessons of photography, but of the lives of photographers from all over the world, told through their photos. Because, you see, I'm a DialUpper - there, I've admitted it, it feels great and I will say it again -DialUpper!-
Your decision will not actually affect me, as my system is very reliable: the two seconds longer I wait for pics to download is not worth $30 to correct. What caught my attention was the suggestion that you should only cater to the faster subscribers (not your idea). Other threads and/or reponses have left the impression that PhotoShop is the only edit program worth having (not your idea), and that if your equipment is not new and expensive, how can the pictures have a place amongst the "Professionals?" (not your idea).
I've given the gift of DPS to my friends and family (DialUppers), and the democratic melding of beginner/experienced is what attracts them. The friendliness is what keeps them coming back. The few folks who complain may never have done without the best, the fastest, the biggest. For the 95% of the rest of us, I wanted to say thank you for what DPS has done for us.
And for even allowing complaints to be aired, as needed.
OK to re-edit and repost photo(s) only on DPS forums
