Pentax Photo Lab and Browser

I am having fun, just trying to learn

Bill

What are some of the others I should use? What should I use to edit RAW photos?

Anywhere to go to see alist?

I find I like Pentax Photobrowser and Photolab 3 the best. I was "forced" to use it when I bought my K100D and Adobe hadn't yet updated their raw converter for it. After using it a short while, I found that it's quicker than Photoshop Elements 3 on my old computer, and I like the results better. The interface is different from other programs, but not that hard to learn.

You've already got the software. I'd suggest you save your money for another lens and usethe software you've got.

I used my 50-200mm lens and could only get a f4.5. I went thru all the photos I to and they were all around 90mm. i did use a 50mm f2 pentax-m lens I got off ebay. It gave nice pictures, but I couldn't get close enough, Here is a pic

bill,
these look to me to just need a levels or curves bump.

Just a quick touch up with levels and curves, then a bit of unsharpmask to sharpen it up a bit - maybe too much sharpening?

Could do with a pasa through noise ninja or or similar noise reduction program.


f2.8 135mm primes are really cheap second hand.
