Adobe Creative Cloud

So we've all heard of Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop but where do they fit in post-processing workflow and do you need them?

There is so much free training online these days it's difficult to know where to look. Adobe's KnowHow site provides good training videos for their software including Lightroom and Photoshop CC...and they're free!

This Laura Shoe site provides good (paid for) Lightroom training videos but also regular updates when new versions of Lightroom become available which explain what's changed. Even if you just subscribe to the blog updates then it's useful to know what Adobe have just changed in Lightroom.

If you're not quite ready for the Creative Cloud, why not look at Adobe's Photoshop Elements? It's a good way to get used to the techniques of photo editing and may even be all you need! The Adobe KnowHow site also has videos for this product too.

Capture One

If you're not wanting to pay monthly for Creative Cloud and don't have any post processing software the perhaps Capture One Pro is for you? There is a free (Express) version specifically for Sony users and a Free Trial for other cameras

There are summary and tutorial videos here that will get you started

Google Nik Collection

Although not so generally well known for their image editing software, Google's Nik Collection is well known amongst photographers. These tools not only have many 'recipes' that can cook up a good image but you can also use them to create your own. The software is easy to use and can be run as either independent applications or as plugins with Lightroom & Photoshop.

Google's Nik's Youtube Channel has many videos that show you how to use and get the most out of these tools.
