I have no real views either way on the morality or otherwise of the concepts or the images - I just don't think they're very good. Technically proficient, but conceptually very contrived and a bit "corny".

If the bride and groom want this sort of thing, then I guess it's bugger-all to do with us or anyone else.

Hi Broodrooster
Remember that I’m talking about the "version 1” Mobi and not this latest one. You can rate the jpegs that the client chooses but as far as I know there is no sync between that and the raw. That would probably be way beyond the crappy software's ability!

BobL: I have the current Mobi 16 GB card and the concept is brilliant. I shoot raw + jpeg and set the jpegs to transfer to an iPad Air2 so the client can view the images, while the raws remain on a CF card to process on the Mac later.
However, this brilliant concept is completely ruined by 2 things:- a full-screen preview doesn't show automatically (only a thumbnail until you click on it, so I have to link it to Shuttersnitch) and it also drops connection every couple of minutes, so you have to fart about with its clunky software to get it up and running again. If they still haven't sorted this out, it will always look amateurish and doesn't deserve the "Pro" badge.

Mathetos: I have CS5, CS6 and Lightroom4 purchased on an educational licence. According to Adobe's terms, the educational licences are not eligable for Photoshop CC. Does anyone know if they have an equivalent? I'm not a student any more. Thanks.

Exactly my situation Mathetos. I asked the question of Adobe and you must have a full retail price version to qualify. It is a truly ridiculous situation.

So this isn't an upgrade to Expression Media then?

I downloaded the trial software yesterday and can't see any benefit over iView/Expression - I certainly won't be paying $200 for it.

I agree with other posters - the original incarnation of iView Media Pro was the best of the lot and subsequent versions are proof that progress can actually go backwards.
