Fully Functioning Studio Link in all 3 Apps


Recommended Posts

Why?

Publisher has greater type controls.

Designer has greater vector capabilities.

Photo has greater raster/editing capabilities.

Implentation could start with Studio Link as it stands in Publisher, with more advanced features available only in the particular app. Ultimately, seamless switching between all 3 FULL apps would be game-changing for many workflows.

(Apologies if this has been suggested before. I did some searching and couldn't find a thread on it.)

Therefore, I open all documents in APublisher, and then only use Person (Designer, Photo) to switch for specific tasks.

At purchase time you decide what modules you want, and then they are available in Studio Link. If you change your mind after purchase - no problem, just buy module you want

This is exactly how it works today with APublisher and StudioLink.
You buy APublisher, only Publisher persona works for you. If you decide to purchase the APhoto module/app, Photo Persona also works for you.

Not quite.

Photo has more than just the Photo persona: it also has tone mapping, RAW developing, the export persona, the liquify persona, none of which are available via StudioLink in Publisher.  Even in the Photo persona, the actual Photo application supports the various stack/merge features and the batch processing feature, all of which are missing from Publisher.

Designer also has the export persona and the pixel persona.  The pixel persona is kind of pointless in Publisher if you also have Photo, but if you do not have Photo, then it would still add something of value.  Publisher does not have anything like the export persona at this time.

There have been several requests to unite these into one application with ALL of the features in one place, but these have consistently been shot down by Serif.

Did you notice what I was reacting to? Where in this requirement does it talk about Export persons? Only StudioLink is mentioned, i.e. what it already does today.
