Alternative solutions for LightRoom?
LightRoom is a very powerful software, but for some hobbyists it is just too expensive (even though it is much cheaper than the ridicuously expensive Photoshop).
Anyway, I have tried to find some freeware alternatives for LightRoom and have found several.
Apart from pure online solutions such as Darkroom, I have found three freeware projects:
- Pictomio *
- Scarab Darkroom
- blueMarine (But this one seem to be no longer supported, you can only find an older version for download if you “google” a bit.)
I have not tried those applications, so if you have experiences with them, please let me know…
*A forum user has pointed me at the fact that Pictomio includes OpenCandy Adware. Although this adware is easy to remove ofter installation, you should know that this little creep comes with the program and decide for yourself.
