Thought it would be a good idea to read the book before buying the software and see if l like it or get something else. Mainly looking to upgrade my Elements 11 because it doesn't support RAW files from newer cameras such as my D7100. l want to get familiar with RAW and start using it. Maybe l can shoot RAW+JPEG and use a RAW file when a JPEG can't be be processed enough. With what little experience l do have with RAW, it seems that post processing takes longer than with JPEG because there's more that needs to be done.

Still shooting DX digital and don't plan on going full frame.

D7100, D7000, D40, Canon M50, and a few 35mm film bodies

Bill, I agree with Jim.  The Dummies books are always a very good start.

 

I agree with you, that RAW files require more post-processing than JPEG.  That's because a RAW file is like an old-fashioned negative:  it's up to you to provide the finishing touches.  :)

YouTube is my personal favorite, but, there is a lot of sifting at times and you don't aways get what you want. (I sound like a Rolling Stone!)
