Last year PhaseOne finally acquired – “liberated” may be a better word –¬† Expression Media from Microsoft and gave it back its old name, MediaPro. I say “finally” because they had tried to add the original iView MediaPro cataloguing program to their CaptureOne raw conversion products back in 2006, and also because in those five […]

Expression Media to Capture One

PhaseOne’s site now has an excellent series of movies by Peter Krogh showing how to use Expression Media with CaptureOne. I must admit that since taking up the free CaptureOne offer, I’ve not done much more than install the program on my main computers. Over the years, while respecting it as one of the very […]

Nearly two years since the acquisition, Microsoft haven’t ruined the program, but there’s surprisingly little progress […]

Peter Krogh's book

As a frequent contributor to web forums on “digital asset management” software (cataloguing programs like Portfolio, iView and iMatch), you soon distinguish fellow travellers who’ve also thought a bit more deeply about the issues.
