I know, I need to learn all these RAW programs, but why do they all need to have different esoteric controls, all named differently? You go into any of the Photoshop or Elements and you know what they are talking about, even if the controls are in different positions.

There are a number of RAW converters that I didn't care to use. Software can be excellent in function, but some users won't like it for various reasons.

I finally tried DxO Optics Pro 8; it produced pretty good RAW conversions for me with its standard defaults.  I do make adjustments to get the particular results I want, but for me that's a less painful process than starting from scratch.

If you haven't looked at it already, you might download their free trial and see if you find it more usable than the others you've tried.  The versatility of RAW images make it worth the effort to find a suitable RAW converter, IMO, especially in difficult lighting conditions.  Good luck with the search.
