The thing is that dxo3 oversaturated my images when i exported them as jpg, which does not happen with other raw processing software, like rawtherapee which i currently use.
The only time I ever experienced anything like this in 6 years of using DxO software was when I changed the colour profile in the export ("ICC Profile") from sRGB to AdobeRGB. Have you checked this setting?

I'm curious, what would you want that Snapseed doesn't offer? I don't use it much (I prefer Photoshop Express for RAW developing on mobile), but this one covers most everything else.

Photo Editor - Apps on Google Play
Hmm, what do I want that they don't offer? I mean, nothing... I don't do critical NR on a mobile device, that's for my desktop software, but with the KP, NR usually isn't needed, so Snapseed offers great contrast/curves adjustment, detail enhancement and grain. Haven't tried to fine-tune colors yet, we'll see how that goes.

I bought the whole Topaz lineup a year ago. I love the simplicity of Studio 2 -yet will do anything I've needed. I use Denoise, Adjust, and Sharpen regularly.

I still had the Google Nik Collection here that I haven't used in years... tried to use it as a plugin within Paintshop Pro but that didn't work too well. It hangs...

So back to RawTherapee I guess - no complains there, for the most part, I just wish it had some extra features but I guess I can always finish in PSP when I do need those features.

I am one of those stuck on Lightroom Ver 6, and I team it up with the Topaz lineup for my processing. I also use PaintShop Pro for when the time comes to do a major restoration to an older photo.

Too bad you didn't run this as a poll. I would have been interested in the results.

Totally agree. This has been an interesting read for me.

Also started with darktable, seems fine, but after the easyness of Lightroom, still having some struggles (mainly, because sometimes some tools have a weird initial logic). Any experience using pixel shift files in it?
I don't think darktable supports pixel shift.

That's not really a problem, just use dcrawps to export the pixel shift as a tiff then do post processing in darktable or whatever other software you like.

Cheers,
Terry

Rawtherapee and Photoscape for when some cloning is necessary to clean up or remove elements. I appreciate that both are free.

I really don't have too much need for too many of the fancy things that these tools offer, so I won't invest in one that costs me a subscription. There are a few good free apps around, I've been using GIMP for quite a while and then when I started shooting RAW I started using RAW Therapee.

I've also got Darktable which I can use with GIMP for processing RAW, but I need to practice with it more.

Currently, I primarily use DxO PhotoLab (have ver 4 now) with Affinity Photo and an old (Google Free Version) of NiK tools. However, in the past few years 99.9% I'm on DxO with occasional use of SilverEfex (out of Nik). DxO gets me to a finished product I'm happy with quicker than anything I've ever used (I rarely spend more than 20-seconds on an image). I mostly prefer it for its lens profiles; I rarely have to make any edits for lens corrections. Admittedly, I've not tried anything else in about 5 years for processing my RAW files.

I used to use Lightroom for processing my raw files, and it had its advantages. But, I never used it for its DAM features, and processing was not as quick as I'd like (despite it being arguably more user friendly). I think if I ever have to change from DxO, I'll probably reevaluate DarkTable and RawTherapee as both have come along nicely since I last looked, feature-wise. I don't look too hard though because I had found that last time I switched over that I could mostly get the same results from any software; it was the GUI and process I was paying for.
