I am moving into stills, product photography for my company, and since I do not have very much experience with image software I am considering my options for which one to spend the time learning. I very much like FXhome's products, the culture around it, and the support. So I would like to continue supporting them.
My main question with Imerge is can I use it as a general photo editor in the way I would use Photoshop? Are there features in other image editors that Imerge is lacking? If you were getting started with stills, what would you use and why? I am not too concerned with learning curve, I am looking more long term and am willing to put the time in to learn the software. It's more about workflow, features, and effective tools for editing product photos, mainly shiny metallic items. I'm using light tents, green screens and a dedicated space to keep the lights and set up always ready.
Cost is not so much of a factor in the decision process.
