  1. Default Free RAW editing software.

    One of the magazines over here in the UK has teamed up with DX0 to offer a free version of their optics pro software.
    I thought I would share it here as it's worth a try and is a fully working version and totally free! DX0 Optics Pro 11 Essential. All you have to do is register with your email address and a genuine license will be sent.
    Not yet had a chance to play with it but I shall once I get a bit of spare time.

    I should add that the offer expires on 31st July.

    It always amazes me what is out there for free when you look.

    I moved onto Adobe Lightroom though a few years back with their low monthly payment for that and Photoshop and have to say haven't looked back either. You just have to live with their changing the RAW files to their own DNG format but no big deal.

    What is everyone else using these days?

    I also use Adobe Lightroom 5 and Photoshop CS6.I had to download the free DNG converter for the newer Raw files but it just adds an extra step before editing. Lightroom allows me to shoot tethered to a laptop for live editing and i can see focus and detail better than the small screen on back of the camera.I have started playing with Capture One Pro and pretty amazed at the difference in image quality between the programs.Capture One Raw file has better detail/clarity than a Raw file from lightroom and takes less time processing the photo.

    The DX0 Optics Pro 11 Essential looks like a great program and has a lot of editing tools.Another free editing program is Gimp.Does everything photoshop does but takes some getting used to.

    I'm using Adobe Lr and Ps. I've been using them for years now. I've dabbled in other programs for various needs over the years, but never really felt the need to make and exclusive switch. So many ways to skin a cat...

    I was an early adopter of Adobe Photoshop, and I still (no idea why) have all the original DVD's the software was sold on at something like $700 per. When they went subscription-only I made my last fully-owned copy I had work until the hardware just wouldn't run the software anymore and then I began the hunt for a substitute. No, a little a month here and a little there isn't that much at any given time but I'm opposed to subscription plans on principle so I wanted to see what was out there. I don't mind paying for something but when I pay for it, I want to own it outright.

    As of now, I'm using a combination of On1, Nik, and Elements. No, it's not as seamless as PS/CC but I own it, and that has a seamlessness all its own.
