I don't think the people at Skylum have any idea how much time and effort goes into managing a digital image catalog. They frequently tell us to just create a new catalog whenever there is a problem. They did not provide compatibility or conversion between Luminar and Luminar AI. If Skylum is serious about photography software, they need to understand that DAM is not just an afterthought, it is a critical part of the workflow (for many of us, at least). By failing to provide an upgrade path between versions, they are showing a fundamental lack of respect and understanding for their customers.
I will not buy Neo and will never buy another product from Skylum unless they change. In the meantime, I am looking for alternatives. Maybe I'll even go back to Adobe. At least you can count on them to provide backwards compatibility.
