    I have it but v rarely use it these days as I've moved to a Lightroom based workflow.

    It used to have a big selling point about it's lens correction abilities, but now Adobe has added that it's less of an issue. It has the ability to vary colour rendering, so you could make a Nex-3 look like a Nikon D4 if you so fancied. It does a good job of coaxing dynamic range out of Raw files but I find it more "clunky" to use compared to Adobe products, e.g. highlight recovery is much simpler to achieve in LR. It also has no local adjustment feature or gradient ability which I think really does it for me.

    I'm sure you can get a free trial, download it and let us know what you think.

    Workflow is the steps you take to process your pics on the computer. If you shoot jpegs and only download them into a folder on your hard drive that's your workflow. If you shoot RAW and import them to Photoshop while converting them to DNG files and then open them in Photoshop, tweak them to you liking, resize them, convert them to jpegs, upload them to the interwebs then that's your workflow.

    Hundreds of millions of photographers, hundreds of millions of workflows. ;)

    I use it and like it. It's very simple and easy to use.
