The price of software we use for PP
3

I have noticed quite often that we seriously discuss the price of some software  and carefully meditate if subscription model is better or not.

At the moment i' m using  Capture One as my "serious" software. Subscription is OK for me.  I thought it was a bit expensive ...

I also have Picktorial and of course Apples own software  in my iMac.  Also Affinity is waiting for  some practice and  work book reading

Then i realised how much  i have put money in this hobby during last 12 years.  Price of software is and has been insignificant - and the quality of the software we use is much more important than just one new lens , that we do not even use that often ...

Is it so important if some software costs 110€ and the other 10€/ month ?

Should we take the quality of software more seriously than the resolution of some lens - or the size of the sensor ? I'm thinking of the pictures we produce - and the final quality of some image. Usually it is impossible to see if some image is taken with a FF camera or APS-C sensor.  And that "difference" is discussed ad nauseam...

And there is also one  serious  problem  - software is often so difficult to use...
