99% of the time I just use Paint Shop Pro (ancient v7), it does just about everything I need and I am comfortable using it (then again I don't do a lot on the PC ) & I rarely shoot in RAW.

Paint Shop Pro
Lucis
Topaz Adjust
Retouche Pro
Portrait Professional - just for wrinkle removing and skin smoothing Smile
Alien Skin Exposure

That's about it - I used to have a load of plugins but have only loaded this batch to the laptop

Capture 1/viewnx2 for raw conversion.
FS viewer/Arcsoft Photostudio for "tweaking."
Basic but do all I want.

Quote:85% of time Lightroom is all that I need.

Will use CS5 for anything that needs more radical work - particularly where layers are needed (or helpful)

Photomatix for HDR - then finished in CS5



Pretty much the same as above, except that Silver Efex Pro2 is seeing more and more use for monochromes and HDR Efex Pro is beginning to replace Photomatix.

But, like John, most of it is done in Lightroom.

photoshop, scripting.

What other imaging software gives you such an easy scripting toolset for use with conditional logic?

I use Lightroom and CS5. If I hadn't got such a huge investment in Photoshop already, I suspect I'd be quite happy with Elements which seems to have all the CS5 bits a photographer might need. It's also a heck of a lot cheaper!

Exactly the same for me (except substitute PSE9 for CS5)

I do as much as possible in DPP: Sorting, Renaming, Colour adjustment, Contrast, Exposure, Unsharp Mask, White Balance, Shadows, Highlights, Clone Stamp, Horizon Straightening, Cropping, Lens Distortion Correction, Vignetting Correction, Batch Processing

It's come on leaps and bounds in the last two years.

Whats peoples views on the combination of Lightroom 3 with Elements 4, though am wondering if I should convert to Elements 9 or even wait for 10 to come out this autumn. I dont really use layer masks much as still dont understand them. Any thoughts?
