Microsoft discontinues Digital Image Suite

By Justin Mann on June 15, 2007, 5:55 PM
Microsoft's Digital Image suite is no more. Due to the features of the product being available readily elsewhere, including many functions in Vista, Microsoft has decided to discontinue the suite immediately. It doesn't mean they'll be ditching it altogether, however. Retail supplies still existing and will still be sold until they are exhausted, and official support for it will remain for a tad under 3 more years.

Microsoft sheds very little details on the official page about why it was discontinued, aside from the features being available elsewhere. Perhaps development was too time or money consuming compared to other projects, or perhaps they do not want to compete with Adobe or other companies in that arena.

Microsoft what?Digital image manipulating is a fairly commoditized application that is ubiquitous. I'm sure Microsoft has a fairly large arsenal of products that should have been included with Vista to create excitement and entice users to upgrade their OS.
