    Hello, What are the options available for good standard post processing?

    I know Adobe Photoshop is the best but the subscription is expensive. Does anyone use Corel painthshop Pro?

    I’m currently using Nikon Capture D for raw processing and learning paintshop pro. I use Snapseed on phone

    If not photoshop, adobe lightroom is the tool of choice for me. So many of advanced features are included in lightroom nowadays that i barely go to photoshop for all photos. Otherwise nikon software is good for starting out in my opinion. Sorry i have no knowledge on the Corel paintshop.

    At one point of time, GIMP was a well know free post processing tool. Not sure about it now. Capture NX-D does the job. But yes, Lightroom would be the best.

      Sir .. I hear a lot about Topazlabs Denoise, Sharpen, etc. Do they really add value to the images during post processing by correcting minor blurs and enhancing sharpness?

        I have used denoise and I can say its good for the most part. Of course for any tool you need to understand what situations it works best. As far as the sharpen goes, It does fix minor motion blurs and sharpens photos but it is not as easy to control how much. Even the masking is not that good and usually photos don’t look natural. I feel sharpness in photos comes down mostly to your technique and no software can fix that. Noise, yes dentist can help really well.
