Completely sick of Adobe's insistence on forcing people to pay for CC when we already own offline versions that work just fine. The latest comes with Lightroom 6 still running deprecated 32bit code in its GPS module, but Adobe havent done anything about updating it. So it wont work on any future versions of OSX. What is more my copy of Adobe Acrobat Pro keeps trying to update Lightroom 6 and breaks the authentication for LR6, requiring a phone call to Adobe during business hours to get it fixed. Therefore looking for an alternative that doesn't require forking out for a useless service that does nothing more than what I have already paid good money for. I have already shifted my photo manipulation, design and layout apps to Affinity Photo, Designer and Publisher respectively. But no good solution for a Lightroom replacement. The one sticking requirement i keep having is the ability to write sidecar (XMP type) files, rather than integrate into a library. Rsync is just more efficient at syncing sidecars. Currently trying darktable and Luminar 3, as they both have free trials, and im currently locked out of LR6. But all ears on alternatives.
