    What photo editing software do you use regularly?

    What photo-editing software do you use regularly? I am interested in finding out what members use to edit their photos. You can choose more than one option, but please select the ones you use regularly only.

    I had to clarify my vote, Paint.net has a very good ( + it is free ) clone tool that Nikon Capture NX2 STILL doesn't have.

    Nikon, Fuji, Nikkor, Sigma, Tamron, Tokina and too many other bits and pieces to list.

    I use either Photoshop or Photoshop Elements depending on what I need to do.

    LR2 and CS5; although it seems it will take until my final years to fully utilise all of the functions of the latter to its fullest

    CS5 - taken quite a while to learn it, but starting to feel I have a grip on this software finally

    I use CS5 now for all my editing. I think I got it last year and had no idea how to use it. My PS skills are improving rapidly but there is still a lot of stuff I'm not familiar with.

    Capture NX2 for most, but PS Elements for anything 'exotic'. Still using PSE version 4 - haven't found a compelling reason to upgrade.

    (In the poll Capture NX2 should probably have been a separate entry with 'ViewNX' as 'Your Camera Brand...', but no matter...)


    Cheers.

    Some Nikon stuff.

    I am still using PS Elements 5 and find it enough for my needs I also use a very old program Ulead Photo Express 3, it has a good easy text and transparent watermarking action. And surprisingly although designed for Windows 95 still works in Windows 7

    The GIMP, because I can't afford anything else and because I edit in both Linux and Windows and The GIMP is supported by both platforms. One day I've promised myself CS5 (or maybe CS9 by then) but at the moment this is the most comprehensive editing package I can manage.

    My selection of imaging software is fairly straight-forward in approach.

    I have Adobe Photoshop CS4, within which I use Bridge for previewing images, Camera Raw for raw conversion and Photoshop for post-processing.

    No plug-ins or extras.

    I also run Photomatix Pro for HDR imaging.

    As great as Lightroom is and as easy as it makes many forms of processing, I just cannot see a need for it in my workflow when I've already spent significant coinage on Photoshop.

    I haven't bothered upgrading to CS5, as there is no need. CS4 is far more capable than I am, as was CS3 which I previously ran before ditching Windows in favour of a fruitler operating system.

    Elements, because I like the catalog system, and am unwilling to spring the big bucks for cs5. (And my skill set is nowhere near the limits of what elements can do.)

    I use PS CS3 on my PC when its working its broken again. I am not that good at it though tyring to teach myself.
    I recently bought PaintShop Photo Pro X3 Ultimate from the Sponsers up top so I could use the tool to remove objects
    After trying many times I still cannot use it so its gone into the too hard basket.
    I am buying PS CS5 Mac version and Lightroom for my grand-daughter soon as she needs both for TAFE and dont have the money.
    Now that I have a MacBook I am hoping she will be able to teach me a little more

    Nikon Capture NX2 with Nik Color Efex Pro filters for about 95% of my processing.

    The rest is for specialised operations (PTGui for panos, HDR Efex for HDR, FotoSketcher for fun).

    I use Elements 9, has all the features that I require at the moment, I can process photos quickly without having to lookup help on
    how to do something, supports RAW, I like the catalogue/ storage of photos that it offers, I feel if I bought CS5 I wouldn't utiise all the the features
    CC most welcome

    LR3 for import, cataloging, most editing & synching to website.
    Photoshop occasionally, then re import modified file back into LR3.

    I use PS though I use LR for cataloging.

    I don't find LR as easy as PS for actual editing (not that my PP skills are anything to write about).

    I use photoshop CS3 and have taught myself over a period of time. The problem is it does not recognise the Nikon D7000 raw files and as far as I know there are no plug ins available. Will probably upgrade to CS5 so that I can use raw.
