Once upon a time I was happy using Bridge and Photoshop. I’ve tried Lightroom but the file management just conflicts with the way I like to manage files. However when I got an iMac a while back my CS5 was too old to get an upgrade/platform change although I was able to get what is now Lightroom 6.14 for a small upgrade fee. The other thing is I don’t like subscription models.
So my chosen photo editing and printing software is now DXO Photolab 4 and Quimage Q1. So I’m looking for the most cost effective way of adding some missing features which I use infrequently i)stitching multiple images, mainly but not exclusively panoramas –
ii) combining images eg. focus bracketing, HDR iii) perspective correction.
