Photo Ninja - RAW conversion

I spent some time today creating a video tutorial for a photo editing and RAW conversion program called Photo Ninja. In this video, I explain the basics of using Photo Ninja and my own processes. If you’ve used Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop, DXO Optics Pro, Capture One, or similar RAW conversion programs before, Photo Ninja is definitely worth a look.

As much as I like Lightroom, I also find the database method of working quite restrictive. I have little time for photo editing anyway, so a program such as Photo Ninja that offers me the option to edit photos one at a time without having to maintain a library or database of photos is more than welcome. DXO Optics also has this facility, but I find the program rather sluggish in its current incarnation, even on my more than modest machine.

    I have been using Photo Ninja practically since it was first released. I find that I can consistently get better results than with other raw convertors, including ACR/LR. PN is not a full-featured, integrated editing program, so one has to be willing to use other programs to do a complete editing job. My concern is that PN is still on v1 after nearly 3 years. I understand that v2 is in development, but I am growing a little impatient to see it actually released.

      Thanks Alan. They aren’t fast with updates are they? I find it convenient to use because I often process single images rather than entire folders. I find that conversion and conservative tweakin gin PN, and then additional processing in OnOne plugins Suite is a good workflow for me.

    Nicely done. :good: Thanks for this!
    Love the occasional demon voice (haha)! Occasional humor in the midst of seriousness is not a bad thing. 😉 Do you think it might have something to do with the load on the effects you were applying there? Just a thought.

      Thanks @joslin-knightwitch 🙂 I think it’s likely that I was recording it in real time and the software isn’t especially good! I’ll be looking into something else for future use.
