I'm trying to decide between renewing my Adobe lightroom subscription or switching over to capture one pro v 21. What are the pros of CP1 over lLghtroom, since so many of you use it? I've found sometimes the images seemed overly sharp, when I did a bit of tinkering on my friend's computer using CP1, is this normal for CP1? Thank you in advance for your assistance :)
