I have been digital for approximately 20 years now, before that on film for maybe 10 years. Enjoying the digital era and especially the editing aspect.
I have used Nik software since its initial inception, through the Google era and now the Dxo era. I use several editing software packages, Dxo Photo lab 3.X of course, the Nik collection, Exposure X5 and Capture One. Each has its strong points in my opinion. I moved away from a certain brand of software due to their pricing policy and the general lack of features and lethargic performance (I am sure you can guess who). I am glad I did as it has opened a whole world of other better options, DxO being one of them.
