Anton points out in the comments to my previous entry that an Open Source solution for RAW processing would be far better than being reliant on a commercial product. I couldn’t agree more, especially after having been burned like this.
RawStudio looks like it might be an option. Unfortunately I haven’t had a chance to test it yet, but it looks like it is going in the right direction. It would be cool if it was as feature complete as RawShooter, and even cooler if it could import RawShooter settings so that I wouldn’t have to manually recreate my profiles for images I’ve already processed. Here’s hoping.
Incidentally, neither Pixmantec nor Adobe have deigned to email me to explain the buy-out, or the roadmap. Why should they, I’m only a PAYING CUSTOMER. I’m furious. In the meantime, Bibble Labs are offering a discount to Pixmantec customers.
