Is there any chance of Topaz creating a DAM (digital asset management) for use with their software? It would make life so much easier and eliminate the need to have additional third-party software in order to manage files and file archives.
Currently, I’m dipping in and out of Topaz because of the lack of a management system.
Two companies, DXO and Luminar, have attempted to make a DAM this year and both are struggling with it. It’s not a easy application to develop as they are finding out.
Use a DAM that has matured already to avoid the aggravation. ACDsee, Adobe Bridge, Fast Image Viewer and others would be a better option. Search a bit because there are a few good ones. I use ACDsee and I’m happy with the cataloging, reviewing etc.
Yes, I’ve tried Luminar and it is well slow. I’ve also used LR, ACDSee and ON1, but the point I am making is the inconvenience of having to keep dodging between them and Topaz and the inconvenience this causes, and the extra strain on computing memory. If Topaz are looking for a new challenge, then I’m suggesting that a DAM would be a good thing to get their AI teeth into.
