I think that is what is the beauty of this program. I'm in the opposite boat as I don't use the planner side very often, but primarily use the 3D imaging to show clients a true perspective of what their landscape can look like. The time involved is fairly minimal compared to the planner, thus saving money for the client if they so choose.
Ultimately the Image Editor side of the program has really helped my clients become more comfortable in the decisions they are making on plants and varieties, and the high quality output of pictures really show the details put into the program.
Now, if Drafix could separate the planner, Image Editor, And Estimator, into different packages,
