    I have seen some great features in photo management. I was wondering what other people use and why they use that software over others.

    Here is the software I am trying to compare:

    acdsee pro 2.5
    bibble 5 pro
    Phase One Capter One 4 Pro (no you do not need a Phase One back if you were wondering)
    Microsoft's Expression Media 2

    If you currently are using one of these or something else and have chosen to switch, why?

    Just trying to get the most replies from people who have an opinion.

    I use Bibble Pro 4.10 (I don't think Bibble Pro 5.0 is out yet) for RAW file conversion and chose it for the following reasons:

    -It is not too expensive
    -According to some reviews it is better at converting RAW files than other softwares
    -Batch processing of RAW files is quite quick, even on my old, fairly slow computer
    -It can run under Linux
    -There are always amongst the first ones to update their software for new RAW files (if that is important to you)
    -It is very user friendly and after watching the tutorials from their website, you are good to go.
    -I did not have to give money to Adobe;)

    Try it for yourself before you buy. You can download a fully functional trial version from their website.

    I use Capture One 4 as my Raw converter it is pretty ruff for a DAM compared to LR However C1 does the best on my files to anything else I have tried. ti maintains better sharpness, noise control, and the color gradation is second to none. I have not tried bibble 5 but I might run a demo when it is out for a little bit and see how it compares. I really do like LR for it's DAM and some of the other features but it is just really poor as a converter.

    I really think that no one Raw converter works on all raw files.
    It may take some serious demoing to see what works best with your camera's RAW files. I know that C1 works well for Olympus and Nikon.
