Right. Well title asks the question. 8)

Iam trying to get a good imaging software for around £100. Preferably buying in the UK.

Some input on which programs have good interfaces, etc etc

Thanks a bunch.

Jay

My vote goes for CaptureNX. But you need a capable hardware, otherwise it will only creep. It's all nondestructive editing and very good when you shoot RAW, as you can do all the in-camera-adjustments later on (e.g. WB). But even with jpgs: you can convert them into RAW and have all the non-destructive editing with roll-back etc. for your pics. Only the in-camera adjustments are disabled, when you have converted the RAW from an original jpg.
And it's easy enough even for a lazy guy like me :wink:

P.S.: ou can have a free 30 day trial and read more about it here.

I am not sure how much it is in the UK but ADOBE ELEMENTS 5 or 6 is pretty good.

How about Adobe Lightroom? I use that and I think it's quite easy to use and with most of the editing controls that I need, anything more and I would probably need Photoshop anyway. The noise reduction and sharpening tools are pretty basic though and it doesn't have any tools to correct distortion, if you need that kind of thing. It keeps a history of all changes made and allows you to make virtual copies so you can do a before and after kinda thing. It runs fine if on my PC even though I only have 1gb of ram unless I view RAW files.

Hey guys..

Cheers for the responses.

I have been looking at Photoshop Elements 5 and 6..
Also i have heared good things about Paintshop pro X2.

I might download their 20 day free trial and take a look.

Alos tom i will take a look at captureNX. This choice does not need to be made fast as i have to wait until Christmas for the camera anyway 8) .

I will update you after ive had a bit of fun with the trials :P .

Jay.
