    Photo Ninja, a new Raw-image converter and photo-processing app, is a capable program that makes a very good first impression. Use it alone or in conjunction with other popular photo-management and editing tools.

    Pros

    • Excellent Raw converter, particularly good at quick renderings of architectural or landscape photos with lots of significant detail
    • Noise Ninja 3 noise reduction
    • “Smart lighting” exposure does remarkable job in many cases of analyzing exposure to preserve detail in shadows and prevent blown highlights
    • High-end tools for fixing chromatic aberration, vignetting, and lens and perspective distortion

    Cons

    • Rudimentary file browser lacks albums, keywords, and other basic file-management tools
    • Can’t upload images to popular social and photo-sharing sites
    • No clone, red-eye, or local adjustment tools
    • Pricey compared with more feature-packed competitors
