Gordon and CameraLabs forum members,

Do you plan to issue a Camera Labs Buyer's Guide on software :?:

Actually, I'm lost between
  1. iPhoto and Camera Labs Buyer's Guide (both bundled with my iMac),
  2. Pentax Laboratory (bundled with the K10D),
  3. Aperture (30 days free trial, Mac only) :arrow: http://www.apple.com/aperture/trial/,
  4. DXo Optics (21 days free trial): the 4.5 releases supports the K10D and both the 28-55mm and 50-200mm zooms :arrow: http://www.dxo.com/intl/photo/free_demo,
  5. PhotoShop,
  6. Gimp :arrow: http://www.gimp.org/,
  7. and others not listed...


[EDIT] The idea is not an in-depth review but to give an better idea of which software is suitable for which purpose. (Thanks Zorro :!: )

To help Gordon choose the first software to start with, please answer the poll :!:

Thank you.

I think an in-depth review of any one editing package is probably beyond the scope of this site but out of the ones short-listed I'd like to know more about DXO Optics. Aperture's out the window because I run Windows and DXO is the only one I don't already have.

Zorro.

Bonjour Tombomba2,

PhotoShop is included in the initial list but, you're right, I forgot CaptureNX.

Is CaptureNX valid only for Nikon camera or for all dSLR? For that reason, I didn't mention Pentax Laboratory since only available and valid with Penax cameras.

Technically speaking, how to update the list?

Best regards,

CaptureNX does only read Nikon-RAW, but many things like the fantastic color control points can also be used with jpeg. You canalso save your work n a jpeg original als Nikon-RAW which allows you to restrace (and change) all processing steps. That is, you never change the original :!: :idea: :shock:
