Do you have a sample image you could include? Would be nice to see what sort of results you can get with that method.

comment PS Elements vs Lightroom for image management
But to answer your question, if you do use LR you would start in LR, do RAW processing, then edit in PSE if you require destructive editing. So it would only make sense to me to manage your catalog in LR.

comment PS Elements vs Lightroom for image management
Not sure if the RAW processing in LR is far superior. It has a lot more features (HSL, tone curves etc) but it is based on the same engine and I would think for most purposes would perform similar quality RAW processing. I would expect LR to be a lot more efficient if you're processing a lot of files. If you love the PSE way of managing your catalog, you might just want to trial LR, add collections of new files for awhile and see if it grows on you.

comment How to stack photos in Capture One like Aperture?
Google shows me a lot of references to stacking within Capture One, at least when using presets and variants. For example this: help.phaseone.com/en/CO7/Editing-photos/… Is that what you are after or does this only apply to limited situations?
