The Great Escape

New life for Expression Media

in General Rants , Wednesday, May 26, 2010


New life for Expression Media, as PhaseOne takes it over from Microsoft.  I don’t know quite when I suggested this might be a good idea, but it was a long time ago. Not that I’m claiming any great, unique insight, as it was so obvious.

Now the big question is what will they do with it ?  If they integrate it with CaptureOne - and without throwing out the support for non-digital workflow - it could be a serious challenger to Aperture & Lightroom. But I’m afraid it’s all too late.  The support for non-photographic media assets must open up some interesting crossovers for professional users though, for example managing client paperwork alongside shoots.

also, they should add some migration tool, if they want people to move from one system to the other (I’m not a professional, but I don’t have the time to convert my Lightroom catalogue into an Expression media one and I imagine that pro has less than mine)
