Just when I get a workflow that I am happy with I find out my DAM application IDimager 5 is discontinued and my primary editors CNX2 and Nik sold to Google. What a week! I have only been using IDI5 for about a year and now suddenly as of 9/18 it is no longer sold or patches, fixes, camera updates for RAW editing, etc. It's a very sudden announcement. I really like it for my cataloging and it's the base of my DAM solution, only using CNX2 and PS for editing of my 4 or 5 star rated. I am even more concerned than before about the future of CNX2 wih the sale to Google. I use Nik plugins and not sure of their future. I am going to have the start the painful process of looking at all my options and migration path. I would love to be able just to use PS CS6 or even PS and LR4 but that isn't possible without compromises to my workflow that I didn't want to make. But I think having to migrate my photo collection and change my workflow is going to make me reconsider those compromises. Is it possible in this rapidly changing DSLR and software world to expect not to ever have to migrate?
