Re: What is easiest RAW software to use?

It's better not to apply presets during import because it interferes before and after comparisons.

Your preset become the "before"

Lightroom 4 is fast and easy once learned. Try the above settings using the "Camera Neutral" Preset, then add plus 10 vibrance and clarity, minus 8 black. "Enable lens profile" and "Remove Chromatic Aberration" should be clicked on. Once you have a typical picture dialed in to your satisfaction, save it as a preset to be applied to all your future imports.

I call it "rawpeg" because it all happens automatically on the input and you have a very beautiful picture with no fuss at all but with the ability to lift shadows massively and pull down highlights better than anything else on the market. The new brush tool can selectively adjust white balance, noise, etc. LR's output sharpening is excellent and easy to use.
