cc pho­tog­ra­phy £8.78/$9.99 per month

Take out a sub­scrip­tion to Adobe’s Cre­ative Cloud Pho­tog­ra­phy Plan and you get ac­cess to the ex­cel­lent Light­room 5 (for RAW pro­cess­ing and photo man­age­ment) and Pho­to­shop CC (for re­touch­ing) for the du­ra­tion of your sub­scrip­tion.

adobe light­room 5 £100/$140

In ad­di­tion to be­ing part of Cre­ative Cloud, Light­room is also avail­able as a stand­alone pur­chase via down­load or boxed copy. It’s a great choice for or­gan­is­ing your photo col­lec­tion and lets you edit mul­ti­ple pic­tures at once.

adobe pho­to­shop el­e­ments 11 £78, $100

If you don’t want to take out a sub­scrip­tion to Pho­to­shop CC, then con­sider buy­ing El­e­ments. Pho­to­shop ‘lite’ it may be, with a more ba­sic ver­sion of Adobe’s RAW pro­ces­sor, but it of­fers the po­ten­tial for so­phis­ti­cated im­age edit­ing.

dxo op­tics pro 8 £73/149, $99/169

This is ‘just’ a RAW con­ver­sion tool, so you’re still likely to need an im­age ed­i­tor like El­e­ments to add the fin­ish­ing touches to your pic­tures, but it’s loaded with en­hance­ment op­tions and su­perb lens cor­rec­tion fea­tures.
