Should we also be looking at LR alternatives?
May 8, 2013

In Adobe's response to the reaction to their CC announcement, Winston Hendrickson said the following:

"We don't have plans to make Lightroom a subscription-only option but we do envision added functionality for CC members using Lightroom."

Up until now I was a happy LR user, and enthusiastically recommended it to photography newbies as a great piece of software, which it is.  The above makes me wonder about LRs future as a full featured product.  As a result, I no longer feel I can recommend it, and will look very seriously at Apple Aperture 4 when it comes out.

What do you all think? Am I over reacting? Are there other LR replacements I should consider?
