I have not used the latest Corel package, but have used previous versions and have found them to run a little short on the tools side. It has been a couple of years, but I'm looking at them as Adobe's changes in Marketing and Sales are not acceptable. Corel just sent an invitiation to upgrade to Paintshop Pro 6 for C$60, so may check it out.
Recent college course where LightRoom was a mandatory. Nice piece, versatile. But has a lean towards importing it's own file arrangement system, unlike Bridge which will use whatever you tell it to. Lots of good adjustments built in that you would find in later versions of Bridge and PS Raw. Some good adjustments and labling tools that will allow you to do a lot of work that you would do in PS.
I'm starting the Advanced PS class next week, so still married to Adobe for a while.

Ok my Photoshop CS4 has no path forward and won't read latest camera RAW files, so seems it's time to change. There are lots of options. I don't do much post processing per image but what I do I like to do well. Options seem to include Lightroom 5 (but no upgrade to it from Photoshop, so £100), ACDSee (massive discount at the moment on v6 but seems a bit clunky), Coral Paintshop Pro and AfterShot combo which I can get at big discount, so around £75 for both). AfterShot built on Bibble Pro which I used to like a lot. Thoughts?

You just missed a 1 day fifty dollar off sale on LR5. That said, LR is really all you need. Extensive corrections available and best database for large and small collections.

I'd stick with Bubble/After shot Dave. Since getting back into things I've tried a lot of them and still Aftershot satisfies the most.
I have Acdsee.. But it's not a favorite for raw conversion.

Well, you need to understand something at least of animal behaviour ... but our vehicles are closed apart from the electric windows! But sh** happens: click (external link)

OMG I think I would have had a heart attack! That elephant could have crushed the car.

There were a couple of times on the last trip where I was sitting with a foot on the gas, another on the clutch and already in reverse or in gear while shooting elephants, rhinos and hippos.
Nothing happened, but we were very close to them! Worst was a young elephant that stared us down while flapping the ears. Young rhino with mama walking across the road a few feet away from the truck. Hippo just off the road side.
A little respect, plus a little fear is a good thing.

Great experience!!!

Hey thanks! Am thinking the other guys forgot to take their lens caps off ;-)a

So I've bought Paintshop and AfterShot on a great deal to replace my CS4. A whole new learning curve coming up.

Pete, that's cool!

Glad you got a shot of it, it sort of owed you one.

A big bunch of really great shots in there and love some of the Leopard especially. Interesting looking at the map too ... most shot around Talamati and Satara.
