Replacing Adobe Lightroom Revisited

So last time I was debating what to replace Lightroom with.  I was incensed at the idea of paying monthly for “the cloud.”  I installed Capture 1 last weekend.  So far all I can say is that after cataloguing my old photos in Capture 1 they look a lot nicer than in Lightroom.  Now maybe this is just the jpeg settings in the program but it was really striking how nice everything looks.  Other than that I can’t say much.  I don’t even know how to modify the photos yet.  But so far Capture 1 is not making me angry.  In your face Lightroom!

    I’ve way too much time invested in learning PS to abandon it lightly. Plus, is there any other image editor out there that is build around the concept of layers?

    Capture 1 and Lightroom for me are cataloging tools with minor adjustments that are most of what I do. I’ve never really learned how to use the functionality of PhotoShop. I have the stand alone PS which I hope I can use with Capture 1 but we’ll see. I’ve never learned how much more PS can do than the simple things I’ve tried. In the future I can think it might be useful to turn photos into cover illustrations.
