For months I’ve been searching for a Lightroom replacement to remove the Adobe subscription millstone from around my neck, trialling loads of different photo editors. Always it has been the lack of a decent file organiser that has put me off.
I’m currently trialling Luminar 3 which is showing great promise having brought out their file organiser in December. Organisation is easy and very quick and fully integrated to their photo editor which in ways is better than Lightroom and in others not so good. It plugs into Topaz Studio which is good and passes files to and from the editor very quickly - much faster than Lightroom which sometimes has to be restarted.
It lacks the ability however to connect to an external editor such as Affinity but it will connect to Photoshop which is rather strange seeing how it is being marketed as a replacement, an oddity that hopefully will be addressed in future versions. But otherwise, so far so good.
