Sometimes simpler really is better
All this time, I've been using Photoshop and while I have created or imported actions to process my images (or used the Nik filters), each image still takes a little bit of time to process.
So, faced with processing close to 2000 images from a trip, I started thinking about a simpler way to do it. I looked into Lightroom, to which I have access (via Adobe CC) but never really used. I just imported all images with a basic preset and made minor tweaks to about a third of the images (the others didn't need anything else beyond the presets).
Photoshop still has a place in my toolbox, but going forward, I think I'll reach for LR first.
