Photography

OK, you've got your camera, you have read about the enticing concept of RAW processing which is what the pros use. Now you need to find software to manage and get the absolute best from your images. Here's my keen-amateur-photographer's take on your choices. It was immediately clear to me that no software package does everything best, so your choice will always involve compromises. Many photographers have two or more software packages. So I'm not going to major on straight feature comparisons here, but on ease of use, speed, workflow, and quality of results for specific tasks. My advice would be to list the things you do most often, find the software that does these things well, and take advantage of what appears to be the industry-standard 1 month trial period—and any special offers!
