- ON1 Photo RAW

I have had there opportunity to try out this software and am very impressed.

Note: this software can be activated on up to 5 computers - making it even more useful at a very cost-effective price.

I am sure you will be delighted with it.

I love it!

It has just been upgraded and comes with free video courses.

I attended The Photography Show - a huge exhibition (in the UK) of all things photographic.

There was much to see, but two cameras linger in my mind, and both happen to be from Fujifilm, these are the new X-T20 and the X100F.

The X-T20 can be thought of as a cut-down version of the X-T2, only it is nearly half the price (and adds touch control to the viewing screen); while the X100F has a great fixed lens and is a very stylish camera that yields extremely high quality images.

None of the differences between the X-T2 and the X-T20 affect image quality - so if your budget will not stretch to the X-T2 then take a serious look at the X-T20.

If you want a fine camera without the fuss of interchangeable lenses then you will struggle to do better

than the X-100F. If you are into street photography this is definitely the camera for you.

The current price (and I have not found them for less anywhere else) for each at Amazon is as follows:



Google recently announced they will no longer update the Nik Collection of photo editing apps or add any new features in the future. Nik users will need to find an alternative if they are not to be left behind.

See Software Reviews for an alternative.

Or, take the short route to:


- Affinity Photo for Windows is available now.

This is an incredible piece of software in terms of value for money.

If you read my Review of the capabilities of this software you will understand why I am saying this.

Serif have seen a huge demand for Affinity Photo on Mac - chosen by Apple as their best App of 2015, and named ‘Best Imaging Software’ 2016 by TIPA.

It is now the #1 selling photography app on the Mac App Store.
