Popular Post Production Software

Last week’s reader question was Which Post Production Software do you use?

The discussion that happened as a result of asking it was fascinating with all manner of post production products mentioned by close to 200 readers. The software mentioned ranged from professional grade photo editing packages, through to free online photo sharing and organizational tools.

With DPS readers using such an array of tools it was difficult to make any big trend observations (not made any easier by the spread of operating systems and software versions. However I did pull together a Top 13 from the responses. I’ve listed them below (and graphed it here):

Post-Production-Software

  1. Lightroom
  2. Photoshop CS2
  3. Photoshop CS3
  4. The Gimp
  5. Picasa
  6. Apple’s Aperture
  7. Photoshop Elements
  8. Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo
  9. iPhoto
  10. Adobe Photoshop 7.0
  11. Noise Ninja
  12. Bibble Pro
  13. ACDSee

By no means is this a full list. Around 40 different tools were mentioned in the comments of the previous post – but the above were those that featured more often than others.

It would be also unfair to compare all in the list above as they are not all products aiming to fullfill the same tasks – however these (and others suggested) would make a good starting place for those looking into choosing a photo editing and organization software tool/s.
