ON1 PHOTO RAW 2020
SKYLUM LUMINAR 4
The only software I am prepared to recommend is that which I am actively using myself on a daily basis.
I hope that is enough of a recommendation.
The image processing software that I have picked out are ON1 photo RAW, Skylum Luminar 4 and Plugin software fromTopaz Labs.
THE SOFTWARE AND HOW THEY DIFFER
ON1 PHOTO RAW 2020- an excellent general purpose image processing software, with a special ability to handle most RAW files. It handles other formats equally well.
An excellent, versatile, and very powerful image processing software.
If I was pressed to make one choice of software for image processing it would have to be ON1 PHOTO RAW 2020.
SKYLUM LUMINAR 4 - a new and excellent update of this popular software. It provides a very fast route to excellent image editing. Click on the link and spend just 5 minutes watching the introductory video.
TOPAZ PLUGINS - Topaz Labs provide a range of add-on software (plugins) that you can use to modify specific properties in your photographs, with a large supply of Presets to help you to get the best presentation for your images. Newest, and amongst the best of these is the AI software which, in the words of Topaz Labs allows you to edit your JPEG images as if they had been taken in RAW.
