Recommended Software for Post Processing images

I want to get further into Austrophotography and I would like to know what forum members would recommend as essential image capture, processing and post processing software for DSLR and webcam (ToUcam).

Hi Steve

For what type of images? Deep space, or planetary, or both?

They require significantly different software and techniques.

For Deep Space imaging try Deep Sky Stacker (freeware) or the latest version of Images Plus v3 (not free).
Both are superb and I especially like IP.

Also something like Adobe Photoshop CS2 or better still CS3 or the cut down Adobe Elements v6 will give you great control in layering and finishing off the image.
There's also Paint Shop Pro XI but it hasn't got the full suite of features that Adobe offers.

Eventually you'll want to shoot your images in DSLR Raw format for a better result.
