Which Software Should I Use for Image Editing?

The "Which software should I use for image editing?" question hit the inbox so I thought I'd share the software I am using with you.
 
If processing Canon RAW images, I use Canon's Digital Photo Professional (DPP). While this software is not as feature-filled as other options, it is easy to use and more important is that it produces very good image quality, including very good color. That this software is free is a strong positive feature.
 
The huge industry favorite is feature-packed Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop is included in the Adobe CC Photography Plan required to acquire this software. I process Nikon images with Lightroom and finish most web-bound images with Photoshop.
 
I use Capture One for editing Sony RAW images. This is well-designed software and when I last compared results, Capture One produced noticeably-better-looking noise patterns in Sony images than Lightroom. The Sony Express version is free.
 
Another app growing rapidly in popularity is Skylum Luminar.
 
Nikon and Sony both offer free image processing software but I find both challenging to use.
