Uwe,A raw converter that would not have Highlight Recovery is not for me.
Even if LR is my main tool the integration with C1 is very easy for me.
Also to watch for with 3rd party tools is how the preserve metadata.
My main software is LR. IT looks like I will have to get C1 to get the best RC for my Fuji. Can you offer any ideas on the best way to integrate the two applications?
