I use Photoshop and Lightroom, and I have used PS for years for graphics, but am fairly new to using it for post processing.
That being said, I find that the very vast selection of plugins for both programs to be overwhelming. There are SO many choices, (many that do similar functions and many you can do in PS without the plugin) that someone new to Post such as me is lost in a plethora of plugins with little idea what is best for what purposes.
So my question....What are your GOTO plugins that you simply MUST have in your work flow, and how did you decide that those were "it", and what particular function in that plugin set is most valued.
I'm trying to get a feel here for what are the ones I should have and in what capacity I'm going to use them. ATM I have the full NIX suite, but haven't actually used any of them yet. Besides that, PS and LR are un-altered.
Looking forward to hearing replys
