RAW files are like unprocessed film. The raw processing software you use to edit them is like the film developer.
Capture One is an all in one image cataloging and editing tool that's a direct rival to Adobe Lightroom. It can edit and process RAW files seamlessly in just the same way and is especially popular with professional photographers working in studios for tethered shooting in 'sessions'. Capture One is highly regarded for its RAW processing, color control and local adjustment tools.
