Capture One 22 or Lightroom


I’m a newbie when it comes to photo processing, I’ve done basic editing in Apple’s Photos, but otherwise I’m starting from scratch with new photo editing software.

A couple of years ago, I subscribed to Lightroom, figuring I would use it, but other activities dominated, so I canceledafter a few months’ subscription.

While it may not be the best option financially, my lean is to buy vs. subscribe.

I also have a good friend who is an avid fan of c1. That would help with learning and he says c22 is “da bomb.” But he’s not a Nikon user, so I thought I’d ask my Nikon peeps for their opinions.

What I shoot:
People and travel.

The question:

I have a big desire to get into photo editing in a more serious way. I understand that C1 has a steeper learning curve, but between my friend and other resources, thinking. I will be able to get to where I need to go.

But LR is massively popular, and reportedly easier to learn.

Go with C1? Or go back to LR? Or?
