i'm still getting used to the m8 but mostly in terms of processing the dngs. i'm new to capture one and the interface isn't too friendly so i'm curious to know if any of you have helpful tips for a mac user. i know this is a really general question but i'm not that deep into it to be able to ask anything more specific yet. right now, it's:
1. image capture on my mac
2. import to capture one
3. minor post-processing
5. import to iphoto
seems long and arduous. i'd appreciate any tips. thanks!
I have a Mac but I don't know what 1. means.
In the meantime I like the user interface of capture one. You get used to it fast. I do all colour modifications in Captuer One but only for those photos I like. Then I export the modified photos in a smaller resolution (3000px jpg) and import them into iPhoto. From iPhoto i print, upload to flickr (the random stuff), upload to my mobile.me page (private stuff). iPhoto is my source for the photobooks I make with blurb. For all those things the resolution of 3000px is enough. If i ever needed more I still have the original DNGs.
If you think this is too much work, import the DNGs directly into iPhoto. The Raw-converter of iPhoto is capable of processing these files. Probably you like the results and you can skip Capture One.
