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!
