Future of Photo Supreme

Post by martin.l » 17 Feb 17 19:33


I was using IDimager a couple of years ago, when suddenly it wasn't developed anymore.

I'm searching a DAM and I've read quite good reviews about Photo Supreme, but I don't want to buy a license when it will maybe not supported anymore in the near future?

When was the last update released? Is there a Major next version planned? For when? How long will Photo Supreme be supported?

Other Software I'm considering are Daminion, iMatch and ACDSeee.

IDimager wasn't developed anymore because Photo Supreme replaced it.

Hello Martin,

I used IDI for many years and am a long-time user of PSU. In addition to its rich menu of functions I also like the way it supports users and environment. If there comes a day when I need to move away from PSU I am confident that I can do so without too much problems. I believe Hert has used standards as much as possible. Also I believe that PSU stores its metadata in a standard way so it would be available to where ever I would move. Moving is not an easy task and (if leaving PSU) I would be more worried about functionality of the receiving product.

I use PSU a couple of times every week and the same was true for IDI. A long time ago I migrated from a product called ThumbsPlus. That migration was one of the best moves I have ever made. And that migration was possible through some positive help from Hert

I see no reason not to believe in PSU and I am confident I will survive a time in the future if PSU was not around. PSU is in no way a dead end and can be used with confidence.

By the way, I am a pure user, not a technical person, mainly a photographer and a dedicated fan of PSU and its environment ... including this Forum.
Maybe this is not a direct answer to your questions but I believe it is part of what you may want to know

Best regards, Harald

You may laugh at me, but I'm still doing so. Had a look to others including PSu, but no intention of moving somewhere else at the moment.
