Summary

In photo editing I always try to find something new, to not stick with industry giants

Wanted to speak about one of the most interesting photo editing software, but it would be more useful to describe all that I’ve been using lately. The most interesting is Luminar 4, which I found in lists like “top 10 photo editors”

My personal Silver medal goes to DXO photo lab, because of its very special “vision” of RAW files. The devil is in the details and DxO shows them all. Bronze to Capture One Pro because of it’s best photo organizer

This photo was 100% edited with Luminar 4. Clouds was changed by app AI and colors as well. I removed couple of girls on a bench with Photoshop
Sony A7 50 mm F4 1/400
Some pretty good software

I’m not using Lightroom anymore, so it’s functionality I devided by these three apps

1

Capture one

You captures are organized here. You can make a library or session.
2

DxO PhotoLab 3

It is good to pop up a lot of details from your RAW files. Using it really rare because its really slow

All examples in this post made with Luminar. And almost all of it in auto mode.
