I have recently given myself a good kicking, and resolved to always shoot RAW in future (well, RAW + JPEG, to be honest, and except in situations where clearing the buffer in a timely fashion may be an issue). I have a Canon 600D.
Generally, I shoot landscape and wildlife, not much architecture or portrait. A lot of images I don't do a lot of PP, and use them for slide shows and the like. Some images really deserve more work to pull out what I really wanted. I've no interest at all in graphic art, or peculiar visual effects.
I currently use PSE9 for PP, and Qimage for printing. From what I can gather, from reading various posts, processing of RAW images to get the desired look is easier in LR, at least once you have mastered the package, and there are more features and capabilities.
Do folks ever use LR and PSE in combination, or is there simple no point? (I have also seen a comment on Amazon that there are issues importing LR4 edits into PSE9??)
I am downloading LR 4.1 trial version, but it would be great to get a heads up before diving in.
Incidentally, I'm a bit of a software geek, so can enjoy getting to grips with a new package - even the price is acceptable!
Many thanks for any pointers - or if this has already been done to death please point me to the thread.
