So I have my library on Aperture and I don't intend changing that for various reasons.
BUT, I feel that the editing tools aren't enough...
I generally do very little post on my pictures as my main style is photojournalism. It's mainly to correct flaws of a shot i couldn't repeat due to "the moment". HDR ability is cool for vacation photo but not a must.
Requirements: pretty much none. Aperture "pluginable" and not hundreds of dollars would be a plus. Hardware isn't an issue but it's OSX only. If relevant for comparison, I only shoot full RAW on a 5d3 (but anyway my library won't be held by this software so shouldn't impact much).
From my readings there is 3 options:
- Adope CS/Elements or whatever: mostly cons (not pluginable, way overkill for what I need, price for the bigger ones). Advice on which one is the best for light work would be welcome.
- DxO: price is a bit on the high side
- Photo Ninja: seems somehow less advanced.
So basicly, except if someone can sell me an adobe product, it's either get the dollars out for DxO or hope that Photo Ninja will be enough.
Any opinion welcome, other solution that I wouldn't have seen too.
