Yeah yeah, I know Adobe is called “industry standard”, but when I get equal if not better results using something other than Adobe Products, which is less expensive, has more tools, and isn’t subscription, I say their standards must have a low bar.
Corel PaintShop Pro and AfterShot pro cost less combined than buying Lightroom. Let that sink in for a moment. Does the same if not better than Adobe products, but costs less.
Raw edits in AfterShotPro 3, Final edits (viveza, define) in PaintshopPro X9. Even created my ‘signature’ brush in PSPX9.
