Photoshop. I started with Photoshop 6 and also stuck with it ever since. It does all the things I need it to.

Quote: Digital Photo Professional for converting and managing raw files, Photoshop for certain effects and tasks.

If I dealt in 100's of images a week and needed more cataloguing and tagging abilities I'd possibly go for Adobe Lightroom but I much prefer the raw engine in DPP.

Very much Ditto on this Dpp is excellent piece of software when doing batch editing followed by CS4 For doing more selective editing on individuel shots, Both programmes work togther for transfer of images, both drag and drop and menu transfer of raw images.

Another LR3 user here. For layers etc I use Serif PhotoPlus X3. I have PhotoShop CS2 but I find Serif so much easier for my simple tasks.

Lightroom 3 but also using PS CS4, Oloneo, Photomatix, Topaz and Portrait Professional as needed. If Adobe added layers, cloning and channels to LR, I would probably not need to use Photoshop.

What do I use? - Photoshop
Why? - Habit - I'm too lazy to change Wink

I use CS5 as it is what i'm use to, have Lightroom 3 but think i've looked at in once. Been familiar with CS for years now so just stick with it.

Nikon Transfer, Nikon ViewNX2, Nikon CaptureNX2, Elements 5.

I use a Nikon camera.

I've always used Photoshop but when Lightroom 2 came out I got it and have never looked back. I have LR3 now and only now use CS5 for cloning complex selections out. Everything else I need to do can be done in LR and more quickly than I could do in Photoshop.

These days ACR+ CS5 for RAW, CS5 only for JPEG.

I could - I am sure - do a lot more in ACR, but I'm so used to using Photoshop, I find it easier to just take the image straight into CS5 from ACR once the basic RAW conversion has been done. The easy integration of the two bits of software make for a rapid workflow.

I don't need anything like Lightroom for the volume of images I process (I'm not a machine-gunner! Wink)
