ON1 Photo RAW is one powerful image processing s/w. It is not free, USD 99 for a perpetual license. I have read that there is a trial period for the s/w.

Should point out that Affinity Photo is $48CDN today and tomorrow. Have not downloaded the latest version, but it appears they finally have incorporated something along the lines of 'select similar'. The lack of that feature was a deal breaker for me, but I do need to be able to do photo editing in El Cap, so will be giving it another go. PS Elements is just too pricey and the latest version requires an SSD and Sierra or later.

Affinity now does everything I need. So far no glaring glitches. Bit of a learning curve but overall $50 well spent.

Once their designer version reaches this level, I can see the Adobe stranglehold fading. More than a few hate that Adobe subscription model.

Affinity is by far the closest replacement to Adobe but they are not there and I do not think they ever will be trying to replace and take Adobe's spot in the pro market. My knowledge is more with Indesign and Affinity Publisher (horrible name, reminds all in the print industry of Microsoft Publisher). I have the beta of Publisher and was active in the forums until it became clear they were not looking to match feature for feature. I am not talking about little used features, but big ones like pre flight and variable data handling. They seem content, and if it works for them great, to go after the more amateur market. While I would love an alternative to Adobe I have to say it has been well crafted and formed up to this point.
