Recently I am testing ON1 and Luminar since I got the super cheap at a black Friday deal last year, but, I am slowly getting so comfortable with DxO that I doubt I will use those other tools unless I want to do something quite specific.

Hello bsas, still only using DxO Photo Lab 2?

Or have you done further testing comparing ACDSee / C1 / DxO / Luminar / LR / ON1 as well as the free DT / RawTherapee?

Hi! Sorry for the long delay on the answer, I was traveling

Since the original post I acquired Luminar and ON1 very cheaply on a black Friday deal.

I obviously tested DT and RawTherapee, but, I am still mainly using DxO Photo Lab 2 for everything. I just use Luminar or ON1 to replace some Photoshop small edits for some very specific photos (like HDR or photo stacking or panoramas) but 99% of the time DxO is working for me fine and I don't miss my LR/PS cloud payments

I will maybe try LR/PS again after 15 months since I cancelled so it is basically 1-1 cost that pays for all those softwares. I am kind of curious about the new "AI" noise reduction on the latest LR patch, but, I doubt is as good as the DxO one yet... Well, in a few months I will check it out
