Thanks for suggestions Kevin. Since there is no problem with DXO reading the files (after transferring directly from camera) and the card (Lexar) works perfectly well in the camera it seems the problem lies with iMac card reader – I’ll check device manager when I can find it.
My iMac (late 2014 27”)normally reads SDHC cards with no problem. Inserted a 64gb sdxc class 2 card from newly acquired S1R – iMac recognised volume but can’t read files – message pops up that card may be damaged. Put the card back in the camera and no problem! If I connect the camera with the usb cable no problem downloading and opening files.
I think my best option is Affinity Photo and maybe add DXO Viewpoint plugin
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.
