By library, what I meant was where are the working image files stored.This is a Photoshop replacement. Photoshop offers no library. This offers no library. LR does the library work in the Adobe ecosystem.
All that aside I share everyone’s opinion that this is not for me.
I refuse to use web based programs, for anything important, or with a LOT of data.
If the internet is down or if you don't have internet connection, you are STUCK. You can't do anything.
I've seen problems getting browser based programs to work properly with browsers. And debugging that can be a PITA, cuz you get into the finger pointing.
Been there, done that.
- "its not OUR problem, there must be something on your computer that is causing the failure."
- "You MUST use browser Q, the program will not work properly with any other browser."
- "You MUST use version n of program Y (a browser plug-in), it will NOT work with a newer version." But you have other programs that NEED to use the later version.
- You CANNOT use the latest version of browser Z. Our program requires program X, which has not yet been ported to the latest version of browser Z.
WHERE is the library (where the working files are stored); on your PC, or their server?
Uploading a bunch of 20+MB files can be S . L . O . W.
When I upload for school, I edit the pics first, so the upload files are MUCH smaller, so the upload goes faster.
And still, I have to WAIT while it plods along at 6MB/sec, and sometimes only 3MB/sec.
And just how reliable is YOUR internet connection.
My ISP has often asked me to switch to their VOIP. My counter has been when I called them about a connection problem, "I could not call you about this problem, when the internet connection is down." Then silence from the guy trying to sell me VIOP.
And business level sometimes doesn't buy you much more. I was at a restaurant that used ATT, and the internet went down. ATT said they could come out the NEXT WEEK. This is for a business that does credit card transactions via a web interface. The owner had to connect via his cell phone.
Old fashioned POTS is a high bar to match.
