I recently had the opportunity to review Microsoft Digital Image Suite Plus. This is Microsoft’s digital image editing product, digital image library and Pinnacle System’s Studio 10. The image editor provides advanced image editing capabilites including curves support, channel controls for high quality black and white images and support for Canon and Nikon RAW images. However, the interface is cumbersome to use and the RAW support does not provide any additional controls for adjusting colour temperature, exposure, sharpness or tint of the RAW image as is found in most RAW processors. The Library however is very nice and supports tagging and rating photos.
Pinnacle Studio 10 is also very nice and even when struggling for processing power (the software is power hungry) imports video and exports movies without dropping frames.
