DxO PhotoLab (Mac) / Re: Receivership

Lightroom Classic is the best free DAM for PL, so would not uninstall it after subscription ends, except that you don't need a DAM.
I do not use a DAM so perhaps I am wrong, but does not Elements have a DAM? As far as I know it (the browser part of Elements that contains the DAM) is free.

DxO PhotoLab (Windows) / Re: Dx0 in administration? Is this the end for photo lab?

While all this latest news is encouraging I'd still love to see a release for new cameras, especially Panasonic G9.

Is there some reason new camera update couldn't be released before June?  Or are there legal requirements that prevent it?

Took the plunge and just cancelled my Adobe subscription.

My hope is that DXO finds it way and then this discussion will be left in the past.
I completely agree.

When Adobe started the subscription service I was upset, but assumed that there was an up-side to the whole thing since it seemed reasonable that this provided a market for alternatives, and that seems to have happened. We now have Affinity Photo, which is as good as Photoshop for my needs, and I also found PhotoLine. Given both of those I do not feel any real loss from no longer using Photoshop.

The loss of PhotoLab would be a different situation as I really do not see a good alternative to it. Yes, CaptureOne and Lightroom are there, but neither seem to me to do as good a job. Still, it is probably best to think positively, and there is no real reason yet to expect PhotoLab to disappear.

Picking up on what Mike said, I agree that paying a subscription for limited use does not really make sense. I am only an enthusiast and what I love about PL is the out of the box results, often they are good enough and if I want more then the tools are there, and especially so with Nik on the sideline. That is why I saw PL as my route to cancelling my subscription. On reflection may be I still do as the only question is what happens if DxO PL ceases to exist. On balance I think that is unlikely but if it does happen there are options - Picktorial is coming along nicely for a start and has extensive "edit in" capabilities (shame there is not a decent transform tool yet though) so that means Affinity can always be on the sidelines. Not all bad then :-)

DxO is already integrated with LR which means it can support the subscription plans and the 12m subscribers. How many people these days use PS as a standalone, other than those not on subscription and therefore using older versions? That is a genuine question.

In the short period I have been using TS I have found that its ability to work with other apps exceptionally good, it could be better yes but it is still good. What might be an option is to improve the link with Apple Photos if that is possible. I still think the overall killer would be to create a DAM through which one could hand off to any app they wish.

Hello guys,

Thank you for the support. Right now I'm not allowed to tell about the roadmap of NIK+PL but as you can see from the release they are going to be developed.

I'll keep you informed.

Regards,
Svetlana G.

Your situation is understood, however my suggestion is not an either/or direction for DXO. I'm suggesting that DXO can continue being a stand alone product as well as a integration product for Photoshop, just like PhotoNinja had done. That will allow DXO to tap into that 12m user base with options and also continue to provide a product for your stand alone application as it is today. That also leaves room for future addons as I suggested (ViewPoint, NIK and FilmPack).

Without a growth path DXO goes and there are not very good alternatives left to choose from, as has been pointed out in this thread.

My hope is that DXO finds it way and then this discussion will be left in the past.
