Another topic is 'embedded ICC profiles' .. and you will understand why Windows Photo Viewer is nothing you want to use for your images.
    Lightroom has a large user base with a dedicated Lightroom Forum, but even the standard online help gives plenty of support.
    wow......so much money to spend and so much depth on color calibration -_-
    Yep im just paid for it from the US website but they declined my purchase

    I am currently using Faststone Image View/Editor

    Simple interface, with batch processing (able to save batch code), lossless corp, copy/paste to other folders (go to filter photo)

    Small Size and free =)

    I usually use PS to complete my shoots, then use Faststone to complete things like resize and frame.

    For Mac users among us, Amazon offers USD$45 for Photoshop Element as a digital download. Link here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...pf_rd_i=229643

    just to borrow the thread:

    Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4 Software For Mac And Windows

    LR4 student/teacher edition at 58USD. I'm just not sure if the student/teacher edition is applicable to us?

    or even cheaper at amazon:

    39USD

    Hi all

    GIMP 3, when released, wil be of interest to all of you. It won't be as good as PS for sure, as they always lack fund and people to help them with development. The most current version 2.9 (not release version) supports 16 bit, and i guess it may mean it can edit raw files.. from the website it says:

    .....Transformation, painting and color adjustment tools will just work in higher bit depth precision modes. More than that, GIMP can load and save 16bit PNG images and save EXR and HDR files now. .......


    personally i am waiting for version3 as it will support adjustment layers.. meanwhile i will explore v2.8, which is the release version..

    so pls watch out for version 3, it may take 2 years i think

    SG student buy here: Http://www.mine.com.sg

    Check if your school is listed first.

    Edit: oops. Sorry, they don't sell LR. Photoshop suites only...

    Software sold in the US has a statement on the boxes that says "not to be sold to xxx regions"
    And on B&H's page, click on the link to read the terms. The institutions stated are all from the states, doesn't apply to your SG student pass.
