Adobe Lightroom has minimal support for a RAW+JPEG workflow. Their position is that this isn’t a workflow that their customers need or want… but together we can prove that wrong and convince them to add it!
For those of us who have had to move on from our beloved Aperture, one great option would be Capture One Pro. The image processing is excellent, the UI is intuitive, and the learning curve os not too steep.
If you’re using Mylio, and shooting with a camera that doesn’t yet have RAW support, there’s a simple workaround! This post includes a bunch of workflow tips as well, and worth checking out even if your camera is fully supported by mylio today.
PhotoKit by PixelGenius is a robust tool for B&W editing, eschewing a fancy interface for traditional ideas that work very, very well. If you’ve transitioned from the chemical darkroom to the digital one, you’ll appreciate the terms and methodology applied here. But even if not, if you have an appreciation for black and white image processing, you’re bound to find PhotoKit an exceptional tool to add to your arsenal.
DxO FilmPack is an awesome tool for creating a genuine film look, or simply crafting your own cool vintage/film-ish/not-digital look for your photos. Sending one photo at a time when you have dozens or even hundreds to process though sounds like no fun; fortunately DxO FilmPack has a great batch processing feature, which is handled just as easily as a single photo is from within Lightroom.
In my last post, I began a review of several of the local backup options that I have employed over recent recent years, starting with a simple external hard drive and moving onto Drobos.

I have a project in Lightroom where I need to share some near-final images with someone else for retouching, and in figuring out most efficient way to handle this, realized a couple of pretty cool things about file management in Lightroom.
