Photo editing ?

1 year 10 months ago #708362 by Pilotshark
For someone new to photo editing, what would be a good software to use?

Also, video editing, can you get a program that works for both?

Thanks

So after so many years of doing this or that and life itself getting in my way, I am now at the point where just slowing down and doing things I have put off I have concluded that its time to become creative and do what I want.
Thanks for giving me a place to get started. :-)

Are we on the same page?

If you shoot RAW, it is spoken about processing and this has
nothing to do with editing.

The converter can process both though I have experience only
with photos.

I use Capture One for processing and Affinity Photo for editing.

Light is free… capturing it is not!

Thanks for the reply.

I think we are heading in the same direction, as I understand things better; processing and editing are different?

Smiling not to sound like a real dummy, we are talking about using a PC or Mac? or right off the camera?

Most softwares come for either platforms so OS is irrelevant.

Right off the camera (straight out of camera, SOOC, means that a
file or an image was untouched outside the camera. However, if a
jpeg image was produced, it went through a series of processes to
achieve the said result within the camera. If shot RAW — the term
SOOC applies more to Raw files than jpeg images — the files will
have to be processed in a converter.

Capture One has insane sharpening tools. 

I use photoshop for pretty much everything still.

Nothing touches Photoshop to this day.

Whatever works for you though. :D
