Do a search. Here's several.Yes i found Luminar and On1 thread...do you have a link to any thread where the different alteratives are being discussed and compared to each other?
DxO strong features are mainly the quality of RAW conversion (in fine details), especially with noise correction, and the optical corrections.I dont do any heavy postprocessing, usually just basic adjustments and sometimes a run through Nik collection or other presets.
With that said, what i basically need is what Lightroom offer in functions.
I agree, unfortunately i dont have time to spend on test, validate and compare all Lightroom/Photoshop alternatives to each other so thats why im interested to here what people that have tried and compared have to say.The best app is the one that suits your needs the most... and covers the greater percentage of your pressing top priority needs at the same time. It will be different for everyone as you can probably tell here.
Most of the What's the best Alternative to LR/PS threads have some very passionate responses by both pros and amateurs alike... and all are valid as they are based on individual experience.
The good part of all this is that most of the apps provide a minimum of a 30 day free trial.
I've used most of the apps listed in most of these threads... and owned a great number of them too, including LR/PS through the subscription.
If you want to have a go at some reviews and/or helpful posts on Exposure X4 by Alien Skin then here is a thread devoted entirely to that app.
