Re: What programs for panorama stitching Mk II photos?

Affinity Photo will give you integrated panorama stitching, focus and exposure stacking, for less than £50. Cheaper than some of the stand-alone tools or Lightroom add-ins. I use mine in conjunction...

Re: So much for anti-virus software!

Win 10 has settled down into a mature and stable system. Updates can be a problem when they happen at the wrong time. Win 10 Pro gives a lot more control if you want to spend the extra money for it....

Re: Affinity's raw processing
