Photodesk sources staying put

CJE sells what PD codes

Photodesk logoYesterday, we reported that CJE had absorbed Photodesk Ltd's product range, although a source close to Photodesk has today told us that application development will still be done by Photodesk's programmers.

"Firstly, Photodesk the company still exists and retains control of the products. The programmers still do their work for Photodesk, I think that applies to everyone," the source informed us, who (in response to other comments online) also argued that Photodesk's show attendance has been pretty good, up until last year.

He continued: "What has changed is that Photodesk will no longer supply the products to anyone except CJE. This exclusivity will hopefully allow CJE to better market the products though that is obviously down to them. The current product range is, as far as I know, still supported. Certainly, maintenance releases of at least Photodesk and OHP are due in the not too distant future (but Phorodesk Ltd policy is not to preannounce, cock-ups excepted)."

Will we see a roadmap or a plan? If its a live product in development, I would buy it...

So Photodesk do have some programmers, then? If so, it would be awfully nice to see some serious development of Photodesk. I wrote to Chris to point out things it was lacking, but he hasn't bothered responding. You would think software developers would be able to take constructive criticism.

It would be nice to have some development on CameraDesk. The version I have still insists on having Reporter loaded otherwise it hangs when I disconnect the camera :(
