Photos By Meta – Meta Reviews Post Production Software for RAW Images

Post Production Software for RAW Images

In this section, Meta Reviews Post Production Software! Like most Professional Ditigal Photographers, Meta shoots only in RAW for quality images, better exposure correction, full control over white balance correction, better sharpening and noise reduction, no JPEG artifacts, no double JPEG compression (Camera and Post Production), non destructive editing (Digital Negative), wider color space, plus a much more efficient post production workflow.

Think of RAW Files as Digital Film Negatives – Like old Film Negatives, they never get altered or touched during the entire post production. RAW images contain 16 bits of color and detail, compared to only 8 bits in JPEG. In mathematical terms that equates to 68.7 billion colors in RAW, versus only 16.7 million colors in JPEG!

Unlike JPEG, RAW does require some Post Production Processing, but RAW Processing Applications, such as Luminar Flex make it much easier.

Meta Reviews RAW Post Production Software – Luminar Flex

Skylum’s Luminar Flex – RAW Post Production Software

– Skylum

Tired of paying your Monthly Adobe Bill?

Want to Simplify and Streamline your RAW Photo Editing Workflow?

As an Award Winning Photographer (Sorry, but Awards don’t pay the Bills), Meta wanted to eliminate her monthly software rental fees!

Meta’s Goal was to Simplify and Streamline her RAW Post Production Software and Workflow – With no more fees!

Meta did a lot of online research, watched a lot of YouTube Videos and Downloaded many different RAW Post Production Demo Applications. It had to be fast, powerful, easy to use, easy to learn, and must include a User’s Manual – Not just links to a few YouTube Tutorials! Meta also didn’t need a photo catalog application. It had to replace Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom!

Luminar Flex – It's Basically Luminar 3 Without the Complex Catalog System

Meta decided upon Skylum’s Luminar Flex for her new RAW Post Production Software. This Powerful Post Production Software, now with AI Sky Enhancement, can replace both subscription based Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom!

Luminar Flex is a full featured RAW Post Production Application. Luminar Flex includes over 300 robust tools and features, including fast RAW support, layers, custom brush for selective editing, masking, dozens of plug-in photo filters with custom adjustments, presets and a more. Luminar Flex brings an innovative Mac user interface, that photographers can adjust and customize based on the style of their photography, skill level and preferences. This makes Luminar Flex a highly personalized photo software tool, suitable for all digital photographers.

Luminar Flex is basically the same as Luminar 2018, or Luminar 3 without the Complex Catalog System. Luminar Flex lets RAW Digital Photographers continue to use their host software of choice, while taking advantage of Luminar’s one-of-a-kind editing features, such as Accent AI, Golden Hour, Details Enhancer and AI Sky Enhancer.

TipLuminar Flex works just fine as a Standalone Application, but it’s being marketed as a plug-in for in Photoshop, Lightroom Classic, Photoshop Elements, Photos for Macintosh and Apple Aperture. It will be later supported as a plug-in for Aurora HDR as well.

Meta Reviews RAW Post Production Software – Aurora HDR

Skylum’s Aurora HDR Software

– Skylum

Based on Meta’s excellent experience and technical support with Skylum’s Luminar Flex for RAW Processing, Meta choose Skylum’s Aurora HDR for all of her RAW HDR processing.

Aurora HDR and Luminar Flex share nearly identical user interfaces, making it easy to learn, plus they can function as Plug-Ins for each other, making it easy to switch between the two Applications, when working on the same image. Aurora HDR also comes with a User’s Manual!

Aurora HDR was co-developed with world famous New Zealand HDR Photographer Trey Ratcliff.

Aurora HDR was awarded “Best App of the Year” in 2017 by Apple!
