Alternatives to Lightroom

Posted on
  • 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?

  • Capture One

  • 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:
