What's a good alternative to PS Lightroom? I cancelled my Abobe subscription because the cost was too much and the only thing I wanted was Lightroom for organising my 1000s of family photos and quick edits for printing.
What's a good alternative to Lightroom that won't be so spendy?
I'm looking at Luminar Ai, when I get a computer that can run it.
digiKam is great for cataloguing and rating etc. and is free
Affinity is good for editing and cheap
Darktable, RawTherapee are good and free
That was one on my radar as well, and cheaper than lightroom. @greentricky thanks for the heads-up, will look tonight
Affinity just gone on sale
I've been using dartable for a few years now - I find it really good but my competencies are quite basic and there is a lot to learn! I've not used anything else apart from digiKam though, so can't say how it compares to proprietary (e.g. adobe) products.
Buy Photo Mechanic for organising. It's the best. So fast and easy to use.
What ben has said, I use Photo mechanic to organise, tag selections, put on data and take the raw file from it to photo shop for editing. Im also on a old version of PS too!
I think the K fell off @d0cA's Darktable (ie. not dartable). It's excellent.
Oh yes, well spotted. Here's the website: https://www.darktable.org
