I have DPP and UFRAW for raw manipulation and the Gimp for jpeg manipulation.
I'm not really so much having problems with software as much as having a problem getting enthused to spend ages fiddling to see my pictures get worse, it seems whatever I do with sliders and curves etc the image always looks better when reset to default settings. This has he effect of not being encouragement enough to invest in non open source software, particularly shy of buying the wrong software as I don't know what I want to achieve!
I'm sure it is more the fact I don't seem to have an artistic bone in my body.
Show me a drawing for a component and I can pretty much superimpose the tool on it mentally but ask me to draw a line I got to get a rule!
My understanding PP post processing, Lightroom etc. can't answer for the OP regards underexposure, but at least they try PP, I have no idea what to do with the software I have!
What is PP, and why do you like to underexpose?
Hi Graham...thank you, I thought "PP" was an acronym for a specific software...duhhh I was overthinking it!
