  • One is bankrupt, the other has 7 customers. Adobe’s monopoly, based on offering industry-leading products at a very affordable price, is pretty safe, I’d say.
  • Yep. 100% right. Bottom line is Luminar - as of today - is not competitive with mainstream raw developer software like Lighrroom, Capture One, Affinity Photo, DxO, etc.. The reason (age, resources, ...
  • That’s correct. Smart buyers, though, will NOT ‘ reason’ like this: “well, this program sucks, but it’s only 2 years old. Let me waste my money on it, instead of buying a fully mature, stable and ...
  • Adobe has not felt the need, given that Lightroom comes packaged and fully integrated with Photoshop, which has had layers for a long time. Capture One’s layer features are quite primitive ...
  • one last clarification for you: the sharpening panel (along with noise reduction) in Lightroom is called “Detail” - do you think there is a connection you’re missing? So, there was a challenge, ...
  • Well, you did ask the other poster to do his best with Lightroom and then you would provide something better with Capture One. That’s a challenge right there. You were ‘right’ in posting an ugly, ...
  • Well, you did ask the other poster to do his best with Lightroom and then you would provide something better with Capture One. That’s a challenge right there. In all honesty, It does not mean much, ...
  • This is pretty enlightening: https://www.imaging-resource.com/news/2018/04/04/sharpen-smarter-and-non-destructively-in-adobe-photoshop Don’t want to get involved in your sharpening challenge, but ...
  • Actually, I don’t do any sharpening in Lightroom or Capture One. Never set out to measure sharpness differences between Lightroom and Capture One - they seem pretty good to me, but like I said, my ...
  • I was just kidding - I’m a Capture One user, along with LR/PS. Brilliant work can be done with them and many other products. The key factors are how good the photograph is and how skillful the ...
  • That would only mean you’re great at processing with Adobe jewels! Much better than me! ;-)
  • How would we know your ‘better version’ was not processed with Lightroom/Photoshop goodness?
  • Styles and presets (for Lightroom, Capture One or any other software) are always useless, because they only perfectly fit the picture used to sell them. Anything else will need tweaking, which you ...
  • Those are, in short, the findings of most people - thus the near-monopoly Adobe has in this field. When everything is taken into consideration, the best value is the LR/PS combo.
  • 100% true and fair. There are many, many very valid reasons to use other software: tight budget, dislike of subscriptions in general, no need for every feature offered by the Adobe subscription, ...
  • Zed, there’s no Adobe ‘hobby horse’. Just simple facts about the industry leader (the LR/PS combo), chosen by the overwhelming majority of professionals all over the world. You and others, for some ...
  • The Adobe subscription is the best value for people who value the biggest feature set. Lightroom + Photoshop is far more capable and offers more bang for the buck than any other combo. For people ...
  • Funny that a person like you (as you describe your workflow) would use the expression Obsessive Compulsive Disorder to try to offend someone who doesn’t feel the need to fly around like a chicken ...
  • Funny! The entire world goes the Adobe way, but you’re constantly stepping out to shop for your software collection..l
