MakisM1 a lot of great learning you just presented. Thanks! I don't shoot much inside but I need to bookmark this for when I do.
Thanks! I have learned here 10 times as much as I have 'taught' back
Gerry...you did your editing where? LR or Camera RAW? PS? Something else?
As you can see from my signature, I use Linux as my Operating System.
I use GIMP (the Linux equivalent to PhotoShop) as a pixel editor. It is free and available for Windows and MacOS at the GIMP site.
If you choose to include a GIMP plugin called Ufraw, you can start from a RAW file, do some rudimentary Post Processing in Ufraw (WB, Exposure, Contrast, Gamma etc) including some NR and then move on to editing the PP'ed JPEG in GIMP (seamlessly).
The heavy duty RAW post-processing program in Linux is Darktable (similar to LR) which offers a tremendous variety of tools for PP (4 different ways to do NR for example). Unfortunately, as far as I know, it is available only for Linux.
What you saw above is GIMP
