Is Adobe Pho­to­shop CC a good in­vest­ment if I’m pre­dom­i­nantly shoot­ing in JPEG mode rather than RAW with my D750 and D5300? Alan Con­nor, via email

NPhoto - - Niko Pedia Q & A -

Ja­son says... Be­cause you’re able to con­vert RAW files to JPEGs in Nikon’s own Cap­ture NX-D pro­gram, RAW pro­cess­ing is per­haps the least com­pelling case for investing in the Adobe Creative Cloud Pho­tog­ra­phy Plan.

Pho­to­shop is best known for – and best suited to – its high-end, layer-based im­age-edit­ing fa­cil­i­ties, rather than its Adobe Cam­era Raw plug-in. Sim­i­larly, Light­room is su­perb for more ba­sic photo edit­ing, as well as for or­gan­is­ing your images. All things con­sid­ered, Adobe’s monthly sub­scrip­tion plan is well worth the money, even if you never shoot in RAW.

Adobe’s sub­scrip­tion plan en­ti­tles you to new edi­tions of the soft­ware as and when they’re re­leased
