Historic Down Town in Silver City, New Mexico

This building is in the historical district in Silver City, New Mexico.

After several very frustrating computer crashes with a photo editor earlier this week, my patience with it finally came to an abrupt end.

So after saying goodbye (good riddance really!!) to my favorite photo editor.

It's time to move on and start over again with a new product which I really like and am currently in the process of learning how to post process my images with DXO Photo Lab 4.

In the meantime I decided to try an online photo editor called "Pixlr E"

The beauty of this editor is that it is "Free" and does not require me to download it onto my hard drive.

The above photo is edited with "Pixlr E" and the photo below was edited with "Smart Photo Editor"

Just getting behind the wheel with DXO Nancy, I am watching some tutorials and getting familiar with how things work. I also use Nik Collection with PL4.
Do you edit RAW files or JPEG with DXO?

I like the edit on both photos. I especially like the colors...really stand out. The major difference that I notice between the two is that there is less texture in #2; the walls are smoother. Nicely done! Glad you found another editor, I am always amazed at the number of free editors out there.

Thank you Camellia! Photo #2 was edited with Smart Photo Editor, I used a painting template that I liked because of the smooth flat look.
A contrast to #1 which I brought out the texture.
For being a free editor Pixlr E has some very good tools.
To be honest I was really liking Luminar AI but the demand on my computer caused it to constantly crash and I had plenty of memory. It was very frustrating so I decided to part ways with Skylum altogether.

I have had issues with Luminar ( Ps was not able to use Luminar as a plug in)and went round and round with the tech department for a while and they final said that I needed to create a second account on my computer and change the  name of my computer (there was a hyphen in the name) until the next upgrade of Luminar. I never did create a second account because it made no sense to me to have to change accounts whenever I just wanted to use the program. The upgrade of Luminar came and no changes were made. So I am with you, the program is not as it claims to be.

Nice abstract style photo. The matching frame looks cool, too.
