Tried some
In reply to Jim Cockfield, Dec 27, 2012

OK, Just got hold of a couple of trials. First up is Corel Paintshop Pro X5.  Have to say, I'm not impressed.  It handles, well, like a £50 piece of software.  It is painfully slow to respond, the Camera Raw software is a bit rubbish, there's no exposure adjustment and none of the interesting things I've got used to playing with in Photoshop.  And it went into a hissy fit when I pressed the wrong button.  No easy flick between thumbnail and full screen as on Adobe Bridge.  Even moving on to the real photo editor, it was very very slow.  And this is a computer on which Photoshop is slick.  It just felt like too much hassle.

On to Serif Photoplus, but given its the free version, I'm not holding out much hope.
