A few weeks ago I read a pre-release blurb from Alien Skin Software regarding their new Exposure X package and posted here. My question concerned people's experience with the company and their current products. I got a lot of favorable comments. Yesterday I got the product release announcement and poked around their web site a little bit. It is unclear from the web site, but I confirmed with their tech support that it is possible for more than one person to be editing photos simultaneously (though not the same photo). This is a pretty big deal to me because the only way my wife and I can share LightRoom is by using DropBox to "fake" LR into believing that the catalog file is local to the user machine and we have to be very careful to not open LR simultaneously and to make sure that DropBox has completed file synchronization before we switch users. With Exposure X, two people cannot work on a single photo simultaneously but there is no issue with sharing the photo files on a network file storage box like our Synology NAS box. There is also a limited capability to automatically import LR catalog data, described here: Moving from Lightroom to Exposure X I haven't taken the next step of downloading and testing, but this thing definitely looks like it is or will soon be a worthy LR competitor. I just thought people would like to know.
