    Note:

As of 10/30/2017, Adobe no longer offers Lightroom as a "perpetual license" program.

The program has been renamed Adobe Lightroom Classic CC and must be purchased as a portion of the "Photographer's Plan" for $9.99 per month.
  Note:

Topaz Studio incorporates the previous Topaz packages I own, Adjust, B&W Effects and Clarity, and adds others to the mix.

The new program uses a "layer" paradigm where each layer has sliders and controls that are applicable to the type of layer you are working on.

This way you can use multiple Topaz filters on your photo. You can also adjust the opacity of each layer as well as turn it off all together so as to better judge your post processing as you are working on a photo.

  iOS Apps  
 
 
     
  There are a number of apps that I use from time to time on my iPad and iPhone  
     
 
         
Canon Camera Connect   The Photographer's Ephemeris   Light Trac
         
This app allows me to mirror the Canon 5D IV Live View screen onto my iPad or iPhone and provides remote control of the camera. It also allows me to view the composition on a larger screen to aid in achieving critical focus.
 
A tool to help you plan outdoor photography in natural light. It is a map-centric sun and moon calculator. It allows you to see how the light will fall on the land, day and night, for any location on earth.
 
Used to quickly determine at what time and location the light conditions are perfect to shoot your subject outdoors. You can plan your photo shoot ahead of the time you will be shooting.
         
 
     
 
         
Skyview   Pinterest   My Gear Vault
         
Simply point your iPhone at the sky to identify stars, constellations, satellites and more.
 
This app is useful for planning your photography trips. You can view photos others have taken at various locations of your destination. This, along with information from other internet searches, provides a pretty efficient way to plan your trip.
 
A way to input and organize your gear. For each item of gear, you may input information that would be used with your insurance company in case of a loss of that gear.

  Note:

I don't print often. When I need a larger size print that will eventually be framed, I take a TIFF file to Schiller's Camera for a Fine Art paper or Canvas print
