Camera Mechanic from Lightroom

4 months 1 week ago #643540 by ThatNikonGuy
I asked this question years ago, and thinking about this again.  Have any of you moved from Lightroom to Camera Mechanic?  

I wonder why Gimp didn't come out with a Lightroom competitor?

Gimp doesn't come out with anything; it's an open source project with a maintainer and contributors. It's not like it's a company, much less a "product".

There's also a project called DarkTable. Not the same, not really compatible with LR. It has a long way to go, but it already has some strong points.

I have no clue what "Camera Mechanic" is, but there's a Photo Mechanic, and it's been discussed here on PT before. It excels at culling, for one thing, and has plenty of fans.

No, I've not changed from LR.

Camera Mechanic?  :rofl:  you mean Photo Mechanic?  

I looked at Photo Mechanic some time ago, didn't find enough of what would make me want to jump.  Cool program though.  I want to see I just saw an email on a new version not too long ago.

I've used both, and both are great with strengths and weaknesses.   I prefer Lightroom at the end of the day.  Just personal preference.

If you are looking for alternatives to Lightroom, another you can look at is Exposure X4
