Raw Shooter Premium for a 200 GB workflow

I picked up a copy of Digital Photo Pro magazine this past week and noticed an interesting article about RAW workflow (Shooting By The Million) by Andy Rouse, UK wildlife photographer. He recently returned from a 3-month trip to Antarctica with 200 GB of RAW images (about 25,000 photos). And he uses none other than Raw Shooter Premium (RSP) to process his files. Even if you’re not an RSP fan, the article is worth checking out to see how he deals with working through so many photographs and how his workflow technique can even help someone who has merely a few hundred photos to process from a shoot.

  1. I’m surprised that you didn’t mention that RSP’s developer, pixmantec, has been bought out by Adobe and will no longer be sold or upgraded. As much as I like some Adobe products, this seems like capitalism at its worst, where the big guy buys out the little guy and then takes the little guy’s product off the market, forcing customers to move to the big guy’s product. Geez, and I thought only MICRO$OFT did this! 🙁

  2. You can still grab ‘RawShooter Essentials 2006’ which is free.
    I typically use this when managing lots of photos at once.

  3. As Stew mentioned RSP was bought by Adobe who claims the technology behind RSP will be incorporated in Adobe’s new product called Lightroom. Adobe has a free beta verson available on their web site that one can try – I did try it but did not see that they incorporated any (!) of the features of RSP.
