I get why photographers charge so much money for photobooks. It's fun to shoot the pictures but once you have them the real work begins.

It's almost impossible to pay someone to do all this work for you because it is so expensive, I guess that's why people most of the time only do it when they marry.

Try Lightroom from Adobe to manage and process your raw images. I find it quite quick and easy to work with, even when going through thousands of photos. It also lets you copy processing settings from one photo to another, really useful when you have several photos taken on the same place and with the same conditions.

Jonas yeah you're right, I've been using it when I had a Mac for some time and now with Darktable I at least don't miss any functionality or speed. But there is a realy cool thing about Darktable, their blog where they document the process of developing different modules with all the math and computer science facts behind it, like for example: http://www.darktable.org/2016/03/a-new-module-for-automatic-perspective-correction/

Lightroom is rather expensive and to top it off doesn't work on Linux. I'm actually using https://www.darktable.org/ which is quite similar functionality wise to Lightroom but GPLv3 and runs on Linux. I'm still quite a beginner so during the shoots I'm fiddeling with everything so that in the end I end up needing to touch every file (of those which are left after one or two times deleting the worst ones) on it's own.

Expensive or not, depends on how you value your time. ;-) In my opinion it's worth 1400 SEK. But as you say not for Linux, only OS X and Windows.

no because I don't have it yet, it will be a paper book, so it will take some time until it arrives.

the photos are here flickr.com/photos/jeena/a… but I retouched all of them to get better whitebalance, contrast, etc.
