  • I don't understand...

    Ok, I understand that Gemstone is pitched at people who want photo editing without the organisational ability, i.e. Photoshop. What I don't understand is why so many procedures are available in gemstone and not Ultimate (or other versions of the Studio family). If I have to come out of Ultimate and into Gemstone, I might as well come out of Ultimate and into Photoshop. I so want to give up Adobe, but you people are making it really difficult. Please consider adding at least AI to Ultimate.
    Please?

        Keith, the complaint is that Ultimate is not really Ultimate. Gemstone has been created with features that are not similarly available in Ultimate. This smacks of marketing department desperation to gouge more coin out it's customer base and is nothing short of false advertising. I left Adobe because of it's deliberate cash grabbing modular structure, I fear that ACDSee is going the same way.

          Unless Ultimate is marketed as having features it doesn't have, there's no false advertising here - enough with the hyperbole, OK?

          It is far from unusual for a company to pilot new features before committing them to their flagship products.

          It strikes me as blindingly obvious that Ultimate (and Professional - because hey, we're taking their names seriously, and obviously professionals need these features - right? 🙄) will be updated with the AI and other new features that we all suddenly can't live without (despite having done just that so far) when the time is judged to be right.

          (Hyperbole again. Irritating, isn't it?)

          Here's the thing: instead of the OP vaguely waffling on that he "might as well go into Photoshop...", how about he - and you - actually spell out the features which you would like to see transposed from Gemstone to Photo Studio?

          Y'know? Actually give ACD Systems a clue..?

          On top of which: as we're effectively talking about feature requests for Ultimate, why are we discussing them in the Gemstone forum and not the Ultimate forum?
