My username: Yes, I am an Adobe Certified Expert. This shows how enthusiastic I used to be about Adobe and its products. That's gone now, and I want to contribute to the Affinity series with the same enthusiasm that I put into Adobe products before.

I have a big desire: I want Affinity to be a complement to the Lightroom product family. As a professional photographer, I work regularly with Lightroom because it allows me to effectively manage my images. But unfortunately this program cannot be integrated into an affinity workflow. So it's not really usable anymore. But I need a way to manage 500,000 images in an integrated production process.

It's also a very good thing for Serif to show Adobe how to do it right. With the new Lightroom CC, Adobe has gone astray - the tool is completely unusable.

What do professionals need? Quicker access to the images. Clean and fast indexing. Print function with exact image dimensions. GPS allocation and Exif analysis for filtering. Picture evaluations. and absolutely: Multi user support.

What is rarely or never needed: Photo book creation. Websites.  

When designing the Lightroom database, Adobe probably had the lonely photo Wolf in mind, who takes pictures alone and also edits his pictures alone. In my experience it's only seldom like this. Usually there are small teams of 2-6 people who photograph a session together and then want to work on it together. But this is not possible in Lightroom and never will be.

Dear Community. Please support my wish and tell me what functions you still want from Serif when a clone is developed into Lightroom.

I am German, unfortunately my English is not very good. I hope my message is understandable.

That's the scenario Adobe suggests using Bridge/ACR for, no? It could  turn out prohibitly slow on 500.000 images without a database though. I still prefer Bridge+ACR, even without a team of editors.

Quite realistically it would take Affinity a lot of time to build a solid DAM with RAW processor, which even works well for teams of editors. At this point in time we don't even know, whether the upcoming DAM will have RAW ending capabilities at all...
