10 Photo Editing Programs (that aren’t Photoshop)

Mark, while I can certainly try my best to see your point as you approach this from a pro perspective, the statistics you put here are kind of curious, I am not sure where you got them!

Remember the old rule about message boards, especially on a site like this where we are just commenting below news or an article: the majority of people will not post anything, and rather will mostly lurk or just enjoy it without feeling compelled to type here incessantly as some of us do.

So, between you as a pro, and I as a total amateur, we are not necessarily representative of the bulk of dpreview’s audience overall. This site reaches out to a LOT of people, (many of whom are QUITE influential in the industry, based on numerous indications given over the years).

Sure, I believe that what you are saying is very valid and that many will not only -not care- too much about these developments, a certain few will actually be pleased by it.

But there is no denying this: Adobe has burned MANY bridges.
