Re: opinions: Lightroom

Everyone tells me that LR is great, but I have an aversion to Adobe in general. I use AcdSee Pro 5 (Pro 6 on the way) Databasing I think is superior and I find the image processing more intuitive than LR. Corel's Aftershot (used to be Bibble) is also pretty good.

The only asset manager that actually recognizes image files that are not Adobe's own is AcdSee... is "sees" all image types including some oddballs. Because I use PaintShop and save as .pspimage files, I can't use LR as a photo asset manager. If you use ACDSee you can catalogue all your jpg, psd, pspimage and any other file types. In addition you can non-destructively edit your psd and pspimage files... a neat trick.

Either way, trial versions of all of them are available and worth playing with...
