shocking news and now leaves users of the RS/CE programs in some doubt as to where to go now. What 'pathway' does adobe invisage opening up to RSP users? no doubt it'll cost an arm and a leg regardless of what's on offer. What is odd is that adobe say its going to be incorporated in to their new lightroom program, but they're on beta3 right now, so is it a case of buying out the competition and sitting on the rights? seems a bit late to add in the RSP coding for raw files.
I personally hate Adobe's Camera Raw, its slow and doesn't have the usibility that RSE/RSP has. RSE/RSP is much much faster at making the changes and is quite memory light. Whilst I appreciate adobe's abilities in imaging this news smacks of microsoft (and other large corp.s) taking over the hard working and in many ways far superior little guys and bastardising the thing, rendering all customer support utterly useless and shafting anyone on the way.
I'm sure there must be other users of RSE/RSP out there, just wondering what they feel about it.
