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
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
