Software
Quick question about a software that you guys think is the best (keeping $$$ into consideration). I would like a program that gives me the ability to do most things to make my pictures aceptable as if I were to sell them or at least post them. I dont need a $2000 program that will take forever to learn, I want to simply do a few PP work and get back to shooting..

What are some of the pro's/con's to each program if you have one..

1-Capture NX2-Adobe Photoshop Elements 63-Paint Shop Pro Photo X2.

Thanks..

None of the ones you listed if you only want to spend 5 secs to 30 secs per shot.

Picasa (free)Photoscape (free).

3-Paint Shop Pro Photo X2.

This is what I use and it works great. Although, which ever you choose there will be somewhat of a learning curve but it's really not bad at all as this one has a "one-click".

Photo edit for you too, I use it all of the time as I could never figure out the "curves" adjustment thing like most do 8-)..

Most professional use photoShop because it is the best. But as cost is an issue then the choice must be Elements. Compared to full blown PS Elements gives you a lot. It also will put you well onto the learning curve for when you update to PS.Jules.

Why can't you blow bubbles with chewing gum?..

Another vote for PS Elements. It does everything I need and I haven't yet not been able to do what I wanted to do. You can download a free 30-day trial fromhttp://www.adobe.com..

Best wishesMike..

Elements is a good program and good way to get into post processing. You can upgrade to the full Photoshop when you need to, and are ready. These are the best programs for photography..

I use PSE 6 and especially Capture NX for my RAW shots. I really like the simplicity of Capture NX for my basic PP such as straigtening an image and light adjustment..

It all depends what you really plan to do to your shots and what kind of shots you take. If you use RAW at all or plan to, I highly recommend Capture NX (or the newer version NX 2) if you are a Nikon user..

As for the pros and cons of each, well it all depends on your skill level really. I find that Capture NX does require a fast/powerful computer in order to function quickly (especially when converting batch files). Both programs imply a learning curve. That means buying a book or guide of some sorts in order to really exploit the programs' capabilities...

All the ones you listed are good choices (for some people). I personally use PSE6. I doubt that you will ever need full-blown PS!.

Picasa is good. There are other free editors: Look at Faststone Image Viewer..

Possibly regular ol' ACDSee if you don't need raw. Regular retail around $130 US, but they've sent me mailings with special pricing for as much as 40 - 50 % off..

One of the best organizers in the business, fast FAST, good basic and reasonably powerful editing and printing tools, but works very well with other editors if you need more editng power. Raw capability is quite good. It isn't as pretty or as intuitive to use as Lightroom, but it ranks up there as one of the best, and even at full retail it costs about half of what Lightroom does. It may be all you need..
