I just received a message from Phase One about a new version of their Capture One RAW-image processing software. Hidden in the release notes is this little gem:

The batch queue limitation of 20 images have been removed from LE.

The last time I tried Capture One, I loved the output, but the 20-file limitation made it worthless for me, and the price jump to go from the $99 LE version to the $499 Pro version is just too big for me to justify. So, I didn’t buy it. I’m going to re-consider it now that the LE version is actually useful.
