I agree with you on the SPP comments. The amount of work just reading through the insane chaos of this thread of alternatives when you could literally just batch convert to TIFF in SPP with zero issues is absolutely mind-boggling.

People will seriously kill themselves reinventing the wheel. "If it ain't broke don't fix it."

Of course you can batch convert to TIFF, but then you are stuck with the same settings for all files. Using Kalpanika avoids that and gives an easy way to use at least Lightroom / ACR instead of SPP.

And yes, the wheel is broken at least for some of us. YMMV.

Plus if you use multiple cameras and have a lot of experience with another tool, it's useful to have all your images in that tool.

Right. I learned my ACR/PS-based workflow from Ming Thein, it gives me reproducible results (so I do not even worry to save sidecars or PSDs) and I use it for my Merrills and my Olympus cameras.
