If you’re shooting raw you’ll need something that can correct the distortion and vignetting. Like DPP4 from Canon or Lightroom.
Personally, I use DPP4 to generate TIFF files that I then import into Lightroom. That gives me proper colours and DLO, while LR shines at editing and cataloging.
Thanks man. I use DxO myself - it was just odd the way I was reading it - it made it seem as though Lightroom was the only answer.
I despise subscription models but for some it's the best way. For professionals I can really see the appeal.
One look at my photos and it's obvious I'm not a professional.
