Rage-quit LightRoom

I just flipped the table over, screamed and yelled at everyone around and ran out of the room. Metaphorically speaking. I just stopped my Adobe subscription.

Even though LightRoom is fairly priced, and technically very good, I really don’t like Adobe. This has been brewing for many years now, and when they recently changed their end user agreement, I had enough. Event though it doesn’t really matter to me since I don’t store anything in the cloud, I think it is wrong to grab the rights to all their customers content the way they have done now. So I told them the only way I know, with my wallet.

I have used LightRoom ever since version 1. I did have a short run with Aperture, but that product was discontinued, and not long after I flipped the Apple-table and rage-quit that ecosystem due to Apples hostility towards repairs. So now I’m in the marked for a new DAM and Raw processor. I have looked at most, and I really wished there would be a decent alternative for Linux, but there isn’t. Darktable and RawTherapee doesn’t cut it for me. Currently I am down to 3 alternatives. On1 Photo Raw, DXO Photolab and CaptureOne. Not sure what I’ll end up with yet.
