I shoot in RAW and use Lightroom to download, catalogue, post process and export (mainly jpg files for the web).
But for a small number of images I use Photoshop CS4 and a number of additional plug-ins.
I think that LR is useful for converting a RAW file to what was there but PSCS4 enables me make the image what I could have imagined was there.
I also use Photoshop plug-ins such as:
- NIK Color Efex Pro
- TOPAZ adjust, Denoise and Simplify
