Digital Photography Reviews of The Best RAW Photo Editing Software

The Best RAW Photo Editing Software – Download Free Trials

If you’re not Shooting and Editing your Photos in RAW, you’re losing a lot of your details and colors (8 bit JPEG vs. 16 bit RAW). RAW is the highest possible quality image that your Camera’s Image Sensor is capable of capturing! RAW can produce 68.7 billion colors versus 16.7 million colors for JPEG – That’s over 4000x the amount of color when shooting in RAW instead of JPEG! RAW Post Production requires special RAW Photo Editing Software!

Skylum’s Luminar RAW Photo Editing Software

Are you tired of paying your Monthly Adobe Bill?

Want to Simplify and Streamline your RAW Photo Editing Workflow?

As an Award Winning Macro Photographer (Sorry, but Awards don’t pay the Bills), Meta can’t afford monthly software rental fees.

Meta’s Goal was to Simplify and Streamline her RAW Photo Editing Software – With no monthly software rental fees.

Meta did a lot of online research, watched a bunch of YouTube Videos and Downloaded many different RAW Editing Software Demo Applications. It had to be fast, powerful, easy to use, easy to learn, and must include a User’s Manual – Not just links to a few YouTube Tutorials! It also had to replace Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom!

Digital Photography Reviews of The Best RAW HDR Software

Skylum’s Aurora HDR Software

– Skylum

High Dynamic Range (HDR) Photography produces Greater Dynamic Range over Standard Digital Photography. HDR Photography is ideal for Interior Photography, Rental Property Photography, Real Estate Photography and Architecture Photography. Meta’s provides Onsite HDR Photography Services within 30 miles of Boone, North Carolina. Contact Meta.

When shooting HDR Photography, Meta shoots bracketed shots in RAW (3 or 5 RAW shots, 1 EV apart) for high contrast photos, such as interiors, landscapes, sunsets and sunrises.

Meta decided upon Skylum’s Aurora for her RAW HDR processing. Aurora also comes with a User’s Manual! Both Applications share nearly identical user interfaces, so they can function as Plug-Ins for each other, making it very easy to learn and switch between the two Applications when working on the same image.

Aurora was co-developed with world famous HDR Photographer Trey Ratcliff.

Aurora was awarded “Best App of the Year” in 2017 by Apple!
