Upload & Sell: On
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...Show more →
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.
