For me it is Capture One Pro for most of my image adjustments as well as it's DAM abilities and Affinity Photo for editing/manipulation. Capture One Pro is a bit expensive but is far superior IMO to Lightroom and Affinity covers my other needs. I still have CS6 but rarely use it.

Processing software has become the new JPG vs RAW discussion....

A lot of good ones, a lot of "feelings", a lot of love, and hate too. Some hate Adobe for the subscription, and ran in droves and still tell everyone they hate the subscription model... yet everyone in the game pretty much has a subscription model, with the buy it now model.

Some have DAM or a Library model, some don't, some don't care, and others need or want it. Some do layers, and blame LR for not doing layers, but for the LR subscription price, you get PS and it does layers seemingly better than anything... but you have to learn it, and some don't want to learn.

LR is good. On1 is good. Capture One is good. Affinity is good. Luminar is slow. DarkTable is supposed to be good, on a MAC. On Windows it is crappier. ACDSee is good. And so on.

They have demo versions. Try them all.

I use Capture as my main Raw processor and it has a steep learning curve but it is doable. Most pros find the files sharper and better color than LR. Another fine program is ACDSee however it is slow with Raw files.

C1 has added some nice things to it, layers, a great color editor etc. Give it a trail run. if you have any questions just message me.

I just started using Capture One is a bit pricy but very nice. If you shoot Sony or Fujifilm they have a free version that works with those 2 RAW files.

I was using LR and PS bundle at a monthly price. Just wanted a change.

I bought ACDSee Ultimate a few weeks ago and like it, overall. I'm having trouble however, cloning and stamping with it. It's organizer / library is excellent.

I was considering the standard version of Corel's Paint Shop Pro. I learned that you have to buy their "deluxe" version if you want it to work with 16 bit files. This isn't necessarily a bad thing; just something you know about ahead of time if your price-shopping.

Corel is old news. This is one of the best photoshop replacements on the market today.

So is my Grandmother, but I still love her!!! Just kidding with you, @gryphonsLair99.

I've heard wonderful things about Affinity. The only reason I looked at Corel is I was looking for an alternative to PS and LR where I could edit in 16 bit (Affinity does this), but it would be reasonably easy to get rid of glare on my subject's forehead and eyeglasses.
How difficult is it to perform these tasks with Affinity?

It is as close to a photoshop replacement as you will find. It does an excellent job and the learning curve is not to great if you already are familiar with photoshop.

I have the whole suite for about $120. Affinity Photo, the photoshop replacement, Affinity Designer the illustrator replacement and will be downloading Affinity Publisher, the Adobe indesign or Microsoft Publisher replacement tomorrow when it is released. I beta tested it so I am already familiar with it. They all have free trials so you might want to give them a look.
