Picture of the Day


A couple of picture from my walk up Kinver Edge yesterday.





I downloaded Lightroom CC as I wanted to go through some of my old pictures and edit them and basically sort out all of my pictures on my computer because my folders are very messy and they all need rearranging. I downloaded the 7 day trial of Lightroom as it is quite expensive so I wanted to test it out first. I have tried to get the most out of my trial and have pretty much used it every day and I can honestly say I love it and don’t want my trial to end. It is so easy to use and I think the monthly fee is about £8 or £9 a month and at the moment I don’t want to commit to any unnecessary outgoings each month while I am trying to save.
I do have the free app on my phone but it is just not the same as having it on the computer because I do quite like to sit down for a couple of hours at a time editing my pictures. At the moment it is not something I am going to purchase but maybe I will in the future because it is the best editing programme I have used so far.
However I have found a couple of free alternatives, these are: – RawTherapee, Lightzone, Irfanview and Chasys Draw IES. I have never heard of any of these alternatives but I think I might give them all ago. If they are anything like lightroom then I know I am going to enjoy using them.
My 7 day trial of Lightroom runs out tonight so tomorrow I think I will start to download RawTherapee. If at the end Lightroom is still my favourite then I may have to reconsider whether or not I pay for it.
If anybody knows any other alternatives I would be happy to hear about them
