I feel the same, but what do you do with your years of edited images? Yeah, you can export them as full resolution JPG etc, but seriously who is going to do that with thousands of images? It was so painful going from Aperture to Lightroom that I just cannot imagine another migration. If there was a way to preserve nondestructive edits, I'd look at switching too.
I don 't know. Valid point. I guess there is a market for someone to convert a LR Catalog to some other format.
I've played with Macphun (the product is called Luminar). it does not have the importing/cataloging/sorting/organizational aspect of LR.
I'm going to play with ON1 (my first few tries crashed...bad karma), Exposure X3 and Darkroom, too.But Darkroom looks to be optimized for businesses, and not my kind of workflow and needs. So far Exposure X3 looks sweet, but it is $149 so costs more than LR! The question is, do i need a new copy each year?
Right now I'd say the contest is between Exposure X3 and LR; ON1 may be in the game if I can get it working.
