Hello all you shutterbugs,
What do you use for a DAM and Post Processing and do you shoot RAW?
I currently shoot RAW with my Nikon DSLR and just JPEs with iPhone.
I still use Apple’s Aperture as a DAM and Post Processing.
BUT…that will come to an end one day when Aperture (which Apple killed off) just won’t load.
So, I will need to switch to a new DAM and PP. What do you use?
In theory, anything I switch to will either lose my edits on RAW -or- I have to flatten those edits and bring in to the new program “finished/developed”
I’ve looked at a few PP but haven’t found what I’m looking for. Ideally I’d prefer to pay once and use…not a monthly subscription to use software. I’d wish for combined DAM/PP. I’d love to be able to process one photo and copy those edits to a batch of photos. and love to have Presets that I can build for a certain look…be it B&W, Sepia, color Boost, etc.
I could switch to Apple Photos and use that as it is free but right now it is missing a few things mentioned above. And I think you can use Extensions but I THINK that means the RAW file is converted and saved as something else and brought back to Photos…so not RAW anymore. (do I really NEED RAW files and not just converted to a picture format?)
anyway, thanks in advance!
