  • Elements organizer or Lightroom don't have folder structures. They simply record in their databases the location and file structure you are using on your drive(s). They both are able to replace the ...
  • For plug-ins, you'll have to check individually. For instance, I have smartcurves and TSL/TSI which work without problem in 16 bits. On the other hand, I have OnOne Perfect BW, which works in 16 ...
