I have switched from PS/LR to OnOne a few months ago. I did 80-90% of my work in LR prior to that .

Hey, Russell. What made you switch to OnOne? And how is the experience so far?

There were two main reasons that I switched. 1 was the ongoing bugs from update to update and the other reason was them exploring the 100% price increase just before posting record profits those two factors did not sit well with me. OnOne does 90-95% of what the two did and I do not have to swap apps to do it. Overall I am quite happy with it there are a few nit picky things that I do not like with OnOne but right now I can overlook it considering it was 1/2 the price of LR/PS and I own not rent the software version. I think with some of the other programs becoming more mature it will be good for the end user.

Thanks for the reply, Russell. Yes, the price increase was drastic and I would prefer to do a one time fee instead. We have some articles on PS/LR alternatives. Would you say OnOne is more of an alternative for PS or LR? I've been wanting to write about these alternatives for some time. Perhaps you can help me with OnOne (small description about why it is a good alternative, 200 words or so). Please let me know.

Photoshop Elements for me.  I use this for more advanced photo editing.  If I want to do what lightroom does, then I use the free photo editor Photoscape.

Thanks for that feedback, Ann! I have never used Photoshop Elements before. Glad to know that there are free alternatives to LR! Btw, you seem to know a lot about photo editing software. Would you mind checking if our description of it is correct at https://www.photoblog.com/learn/free-photo-editing-software/ (#3). I would love to know your opinion about that.

Thanks again, Ann.
