Quote from: jrp on April 13, 2019, 02:26:48 pmThank you for those words of wisdom. The point of soliciting others' views is to be better informed before making my choice.
Quote from: jrp on April 13, 2019, 01:25:09 pmI've mainly stuck with Lightroom because it supports the cameras / lenses that I use and is reasonably simple to use and generates reasonable results, even if I need to go into Photoshop to improve local contrast or edit things out, eg.I have tried Capture One, on and off, over the years, but it's expensive, doesn't / didn't support the cameras that I was using (they had some petty spat with Leica, eg) and even now, it is not clear what cameras v12 supports. Panasonic S1 series anyone?I note that a few new products appeared after Adobe went subscription only. Have any of these made it into viable products for advanced users? I know that Apple and Microsoft are building more support for raw conversion into their OSs. Given the resources and access to talent that these giants have, perhaps they and / or the likes of Google will obviate the need for additional processors at some point.Can anyone offer a strengths / weaknesses assessment of the field?

Quote from: MichaelC on May 07, 2019, 05:15:38 pmThanks Kirk. I have tried Iridient but hadn't heard of the other 3 you mentioned so will have a look at those. Also I have been trialling Photoline, however I admit that I am at a total loss with it for even the most basic of operations as I have not used Photoshop before so will be watching Photoshop tutorials with the hope that they give an insight on how to use Photoline. Affinity may be a better option after having looked at it briefly. I seem to be spending more time getting the software sorted than photographing at the moment
