Adobe Scoops Up Pixmantec
In a very quiet acquisition, Adobe Systems has acquired Pixmantec, the makers of the popular and lightweight RAWShooter photo conversion software. Of immediate impact to digital shooters is the fact that RAWShooter will be discontinued. The free Essentials version will continue to be marketed and made available until Lightroom leaves beta state. RAWShooter users will then be offered an upgrade path to Adobe's products.
