I didn't explain myself well.
What I do currently is...I import my images from the 80D onto my laptop where they sit as CR2 images (I'm shooting full RAW). I can see them on the laptop but cannot open them in PS without using the DNG converter. When I do this and the images sit side-by-side...
Scott: I do this since my version of Photoshop (5.5--one of the last before CC) doesn't accommodate my Canon 80D's CR2 files.
Do you see any difference in your images after you process them with the DNG converter? Mine look just a little "different" and I can't put my finger on exactly why.
Is it possible for me to get a stand-alone version of LR now? Or, am I too late?
We had to go to the subscription service at my work for Premiere Pro and it’s really a PITA—partially on their end but also on our end. The process just complicates things when conditions aren’t perfect.
