ON 1 PHOTO RAW 2019
Why have I moved to ON1 Photo Raw as my standard editing program?
Because it does everything that I need for standard image processing, it accepts Fujifilm RAF files (as well as many others including jpeg and tiff), it does not tie me to a subscription contract, presets are plentiful and high quality, there are no practical output limitations, and the interface is intuitive and fast to work with.
It has even got a built-in polarising filter.
So, what is there not to like?
The ON1 web site provides a fuller list of its assets, with worked examples, than I can do here.
So, if you want to take your image processing seriously at a reasonable price, take a good look at ON1 PHOTO RAW 2019.

I opened this image in the software
and in three minutes I had the following edited version:
Example 2: Over-exposed original

A similar amount of time using the
Develop Module and the resultant image was:
Example 3: A difficult exposure corrected
The final example is an image which might have been considered O.K. but experience has taught me that ON1 Photo RAW 2019 could make a stronger image.
Basic editing, again in the Develop Mode, was
enough to bring about this improvement:
