The Studio

I have a powerful Asus ROG laptop connected to an external 24” Dell UltraSharp monitor, Wacom tablet, M-Audio FW410 sound interface, mini audio mixer, Akai APC40 Midi controller and a microphone.
Beside, I use these software to create, edit and finish my work, they are free to download and use, (except for Canon’s DPP which is bundled solely with their cameras, but if you do some search you might find a way to download it and install it).
The description under each title is being pasted as-is from their respectful websites.

RAW THERAPEE


RawTherapee is a cross-platform raw image processing program, released under the GNU General Public License Version 3. It was originally written by Gábor Horváth of Budapest, and development was taken over in 2010 by a team of people from around the world. Rather than being a raster graphics editor such as Photoshop or GIMP or a digital asset management program like digiKam, it is specifically aimed at raw photo post-production. And it does it very well - at a minimum, RawTherapee is one of the most powerful raw processing programs available.

CANON DIGITAL PHOTO PROFESSIONAL

Canon software engineers – having the unique advantage of being able to directly harness the power of the Canon sensors, DIGIC processors and lenses – have made the all-new Digital Photo Professional 4.0 a much faster, more dynamic, linear and feature-packed image editing software solution, thanks to the ability to fully utilise 64-bit architecture. The latest version of DPP has been designed and developed from the ground up, tailored to the workflows of professional and high-end amateurs to help them realise the key EOS System concepts of speed, ease of use and high image quality.
New, improved Canon algorithms have been optimised to make the most of the wealth of information delivered by the camera sensors, while productivity has been increased thanks to improved speed of RAW image display and developing that makes real-time image adjustment a reality.
