Do you mean LR or PS? Do you mean free or low-cost? The question is quite vague.

There are alternatives, but NO replacement for PS and LR.....;)

Why so serious?

It is strictly for Macs at this point. Stupid but reality. Reading their forum on the program, they do not even hint that there will be a Windows version. In fact they have been a Windows centric company for a long time now, but they apparently want to Mac it up a bit. But reading many of the problems they are having thus far with it, them competing on the same level with Adobe is a ways off yet. While yes I would love to see Adobe knocked down a peg or two, and actually have to compete, this program get 5 yawns, since it is strictly a Mac&Cheese program. They will have to develop a Windows version to even get anywhere with it. So far it looks like a long on promise, but short on delivery deal once again.

 If I were on a Mac, I would be trying Affinity photo.
Since I am a Windows guy, I use LR5.7, Corel Paintshop Pro X7 (with Redfield and Topaz plugins), and some Picasa for quick review and snap edits. Finding myself using LR less but it still has a few things that work well for me.

Shoot, learn and share. It will make you a better photographer.

I have a Mac for work (day job :( ), and I may give the beta a try. But honestly, their video does nothing for me.

Helpful thread to see considering my Adobe license has expired and I need new software.
