    I have still got LR6 Standalone and PSE15, but for me when I came over to Fuji I thought I`d have a total new editing lot, can`t wait till I get the AP Workbook plus I like how C1 and AP work together so I will be one happy bunny.

    I can't compare it to PaintShop Pro b/c I haven't used that program. I'm pretty impressed with AP. It doesn't crash in the middle of a project. My biggest issue is that I find it takes longer to convert RAW files to jpeg than I would expect. Otherwise, very impressed.

    My last use was X8, and compared to PS found it very close. I actually still go back and use it to do HDR as I believe it's superior to Adobe. Unfortunately it doesn't have following and their aren't as many videos out there on using it.

    I just use Silky pix free from Fujifilm. Then maybe some minor adjustments in GIMP. I use Gimp mainly to scale images down to post on here. I don't know, I guess I hate editing so much that I keep it real simple and try to get it best I can in camera so that the Silky pix software does what minor adjustments I need to make. Most of the time (mainly), I just look at the histogram in camera (when I get the time) and convert them to JPEGs and I'm done.

    I will do an event and shoot raw + jpeg and chimp the jpegs to make sure everything is sharp but that is very infrequent. I then bring them (raw) into Silky pix for minor adjustment and develop the jpeg.

    Mostly shoot just raw, convert in camera, done. Then I download the jpegs to a folder. I edit very, very little.

    The only time I double check images is at an event or specific shoot, which is not very often. I am probably selling my potential short by avoiding editing but I hate it that much.

    There is no right or wrong on digital, because whether you let the camera's internal processor give you it's interpretation of the data, or further edit using an image software, somewhere the digital data was manipulated. For me I'm always looking for what the camera "didn't" see, that's still hidden in that data file waiting to be exploited.

    Fair enough. I still loathe it enough not to be overly concerned.

    Back on topic @Fujidave please keep us updated as you progress in the learning process with Affinity. I use Adobe, because I never found a suitable alternative, but there is no love there, and would gladly dump their monthly strangle hold.
