Remember I am not a DPP fan nor am I a user. I simply did what you said. I actually have no idea beyond curiosity what DPP does or doesn't do. I use it so little. When I opened it the moths flew away as I must have disturbed them.
You guys can say what you want and brag all you want. Do as much boasting as you want and DPP will never be Photoshop.
As a psuedo Lightroom, yeah, maybe but not for me. It remains a wanna-be!
No, Ernie, go back and read what's been written on the subject over the past couple of years. (That's as long as I've been in the forum, so it's all I know.) Almost all of the boasting about photo editors has been done by you - about Photoshop and other Adobe editors. Virtually every time somebody asks about photo editors, you recommend, often forcefully, some form of Photoshop.
I will freely concede that Photoshop is probably the finest photo editor ever conceived by the mind of man. All I'm saying is that it's expensive; it's less convenient in at least some respects than DPP; and a significant percentage of the user community will never need it. You may disagree, but I don't like to pay for something I don't need. And I won't knowingly tell other people to buy something that I think they probably don't need.

I appreciate everyone's advice and passion, but I had decided to go with Lightroom.
As I get more experience under my belt I am not opposed to other options.

B from B said,

That is why I recommend it. Remember B for B, it isn't boasting or bragging if it is true.
I concede the high cost, you got me all over on that part. And the fact PS is no longer available to buy. However the rental is only $10 bucks per month and it includes LR.
