(4) The free version does not include certain features, such as the Vibrancy control, which is one of the most interesting aspects of this converter. Hence if one wants the "full-monty", one buys it, and the price is truly very reasonable, so why not? (I only got introduced to this piece of software very recently and was impressed enough with some of its features to understand at least one reason why Adobe bought them out.)

Dunno if this still works but the free nik brilliance (and warmth) filter is a nice Vibrancy control substitute.

What I would personnally like to see is a DB with most of lightroom capabilities for file searching, sorting, slide shows, web albums creation... but with the possibility to use any compatible raw converter:

Bernard, this functionality is already available with iView Media Pro. All the DAM (catalogues, keywords etc), web and slide show stuff is handled by iView. But double click on a thumnail and it will open in the editor of your choice...Nikon, Canon, PS or whatever. There is a free trial version available, I suggest you take a look at it.

Hi Jeff,

Back again with the response from the chain you recommended to me:

<<Dear Customer,

Thank you for your inquiry regarding technical support.

If the license key you received by e-mail is rejected when you try to
enter it into the system, please check whether the information you entered is
correct.
.........................................>>
So they've been gracious enough to teach me how to do copy/paste and they sent me back to Pixmantec - where I CORRECTLY started, which then sends me an auto-response that doesn't deal with the matter. So I am back to "square-1".

I'm not going to decorate this experience with any more adjectives, because obviously the adjectives may be controversial and I don't wish to upset my colleagues on this web forum. People can draw their own conclusions. I'm simply going to send a fax to Adobe's Senior Management asking them to rectify the matter, because they own it - for better or for worse.

Jeff,

Further to where this discussion left-off above, I owe you a word of thanks, because the problem was somewhat complicated and thanks to something you said, and thanks to Michael Tapes, the problem is solved. I wanted to bring the audience for this thread up-to-speed on what happened, so that I do not leave anyone with erroneous impressions or hurt feelings. What I thought based on the evidence may have been some kind of constructed evasion of responsibility turned out to be an episode of technical confusion that is now resolved.

After you mentioned that Michael Tapes was moderating a Forum dealing with RSP, and I went to it and saw that such commercial issues were not on its agenda, I took the initiative of sending M. Tapes a private email explaining the problem I was having. He was gracious enough to take it upon himself to help solve it. He asked me for some more details, and after receiving them he detected that somehow or other (still a mystery how all this happened) even after the product was discontinued I was not only able to download RSP from Pixmantec's website, but at the same time purchase of a license key for a RELATED available product (something called Color Engine, which I now know is not RSP). Hence when I received that license key, obviously it wouldn't work in RSP. With the problem diagnosed, it wasn't long before it was resolved. I also now notice that there have been changes to Pixmantec's website which would appear to make it impossible for users to regenerate this string of errors.

Summing up: ALL IS WELL, and THANKS.

Well, in the end, I'm glad you got stuff sorted out...just to be clear though, Raw Shooter Premium -IS- still available for download. If one has a license then it's an update and if one doesn't, it's a demo. But I was pretty sure they quit actually SELLING RSP pretty much as soon as the announcement happened although they did continue sales of Color Engine-which is apparently what you bought thinking it was an RSP license...

But I'm glad Michael Tapes figured it out for you...
