    Not only has it rich features, but also the calculation and manipulation is very well done.

    I love D-lighting
    Thanks. Yes I agree. Looks like NC is worth the price of admission.

    Since Uwe is one of the developers of RSE, sounds like a good one to have. Thanks for the lead.

    No image adjustment applied; I just pop the photo up and convert.

    First guy is from Nikon Capture 4.2. The image size is well over 100KB that I have to reduce the quality



    The next contender is C1 Pro. Seems that this folk can't read all settings from NEFs, such as Color Space. The image size is 90.2KB (larger the file, finer the details)



    The last competitor comes the famous free RAWessential. The image size is roughly 92KB.

    With my monitor resolution @ 1280X1024 I can't tell too much with those images as they are a little small. The first one looks too dark form what I can tell? I've got a high speed cable connection so put up some higher res. stuff if you can.

    I'm sorry, but I did this set of comparison some time ago.

    Now I have uninstalled some programs; therefore I can't make another comparison. But if I have enough time, I might re-install the programs again.

    IMO, the first picture is perfectly exposed. It's higher contrast that might induce some people to think that it's underexposed

    Palmbook-

    Yes, I agree, the first photo has finer tonal qualities and a bit more color. That is a nice comparison. Thanks very much for posting those esamples.

    A little thing I discovered last night. Everyone speaks about how fast RAWShooter Essentials is. However, it does slow down a lot if you load a lot of photos directly from the CF card in the reader. I does keep a goodly amount of information around, because after I had looked at all the photos and started setting priorities (1-2-3-Trash), it started working much faster on followup viewing.

    On the other hand, Nikon Capture, slow as it is, does not seem to slow down further due to volume or source. While I really like RSE's priority workflow system, I don't care for it's controls as much as NC, either in the set of controls or way they handle. I'm also not a big fan of the unconventional interface in RSE.

    I guess ones computer memory could equate to slowdown too. I've got 2 512MB's Corsair XMS Extreme Memory running in Dual Channel so I don't see any slow down in RSE.

    I have used RSE, PS Elements 3.0 and ACDSee 7 and have found that when processing RAW NEF files I get a different exsposure result with each one. Then I bought Nikon Capture and found that it processes NEF files consistently and gives me the exposure that I expect with the shooting parameters that I have used. I still like to finish up in PS Elements before printing Mainly because I have not yet taken the trouble to learn Capture thoroughly.
