I took a 10 year hiatus from my digital photography hobby. I'm about to jump back in it, but I have a few questions since a lot has changed.

1. I used to have my own version of Photoshop, Lightroom, Bridge. Now I see you must subscribe to these tools. I just started playing with ON1 RAW. Which direction should I be headed?

2. I've used masking a lot in the past, and I plan on continuing to use that tool. I had Fluid Mask back in the day. Who has the best masking software out there today?

3. I was using Genuine Fractals back in day to resize. Who's got the best app for resizing?



Personally, I still use Photoshop CC 2023.   Yes, it is subscription, but it is worth it for me.

I also have Affinity Photo, which almost mirrors Photoshop in many areas, and is good software, but I just find Photoshop more to my liking.

I also use Topaz Sharpen AI.

Best of Luck with your Decisions.
