With more and more software editing apps out there I was wondering what everyone's raw editor of choice is? For me, for $9.99 a month and the great updates Adobe has been doing over the last couple of years I use Lightroom. Plus, while I may not use Photoshop a lot, I do use it on just about every photo (even if it's only 60 seconds to remove a distraction, branch, or spot from my wildlife photos). With that, it makes sense to stay in the Adobe family because I get both. Curious to see what everyone else uses?
Hi Matt. I switched to CaptureOne about 5 years ago from LR. The main reason initially was for Sony the CP1 Color Engine just did a better job in my opinion. The product has expended tremendously over the past years and the speed and quality I get from it is excellent. CP1 does have an annual payment to get support and all the updates. When I need to do edits that I cannot do in CP1, I use Affinity Photo. It is excellent and you pay once for life. The other editing tools I use when needed are the Topaz tools. I think that to get the detailed editing you want, you need to find the combination of tools that can do all the pieces well and then develop a workflow with them.
