For ease of post-processing photographs, I find On1 Photo RAW and Luminar Neo to be among the easiest and most powerful tools available. I recently canceled my subscription to Adobe as I found I was using Lightroom less and less. If you love Lightroom CC, stick with it as it does a great job of enhancing images.
In the above sailboat photograph I applied several hints provided in the Jim Nix YouTube video referenced below.
My photo workflow changed in the last year. I now upload all images from the SD Card to a solid state external drive. I use a 2 terabyte Samsung drive for my photos. Once on the Samsung drive I then load them into Excire Foto for keywording. Check out a few Excire Foto videos to see how it works.
I found the sailboat image by searching for skyscrapers. Through Excire Fhoto I requested On1 Photo RAW as the program to enhance the image and that is where I employed the suggestions you will see in the following video.
On1 Photo RAW will release a new version on 10 October 2022 and it will also have keywording capabilities, much as one finds with Excire Foto. It might even replace Excire Foto.
In the future I will post a before and after comparison so readers can see how these programs impact an image with very few adjustments.
