LR3 is finally at a price point that I find attractive , (today on sale at B&H For $70), my current workflow is as follows:-
1) Picasa for viewing photos & online sharing
2) All photos manually organized under month-year based folder structure
3) I shoot Raw and selectively process the RAW files of photos I find most interesting in DPP
4) Selectively modify a few photos in PSE8 for sharpness, cloning, levels, printing etc
I tend to prefer DPP colors to ACR colors of PSE8.
I have heard many people rave about LR3, could any former DPP owners speak if LR3 is a worthy upgrade for raw processing or simplifying workflow? Thank you in advance.
Ok DPP is hard to complain about since it's free, but my god it's horrible to use and frankly I can get better results in a quarter of the time with LR3. Colours from DPP might be a bit better, but choose the correct profile from ACR and tweak a little if needed and I can get very close.
Some are happy with DPP, but I'd only use it if I had a new camera that wasn't supported by LR or C1 Pro, another great RAW converter and better colour than LR but not as good for NR.
