I am not much of a complainer... I fix issues myself, work around and try to make it work.
I have state of the art hardware, keep things up to date just to avoid issues. But now, here I need to make an exception.
I created a workflow that was based on Lightroom > Photoshop > On1 as plugin using RAW and Effects. This all worked very well until version 2020. I was able to edit images in On1: apply effects and edit "raw" settings from within PS or LR.
On1 has decided to create its own image-content habitat, abandon PS and LR integration and by that changing a fundamental aspect of the software and by that the workflow of many. Now we could debate if this is better or worse, we can even neglect the fact that Adobe will never collapse as a company which can't be said of others, but the reasoning is unclear to me except that it must be marketing ( and not technically). I do realise that the market for image browsers, asset management and workflow management is big enough to nibble a piece from Adobe but the "collateral damage" should not be neglected and the overal feeling users have should not be forgotten or ignored. I use your software since many years and it helps me to create stunning images. However, it was not only the functionality but also the integration in Adobe products and the ability to use it in a flexible way that played a part.
I hope you will reconsider the "detachment" from Adobe products and listen to what your loyal customers have to say. But....maybe I am the only one? Love to hear what others have to say.
