Oh my friggin’ god. This cannot be happening. Adobe is admitting after years of crappy performance issues and I have to believe after more than just hundreds of thousands complaints they refused to respond to or admit to HAVE DECIDED TO COME OUT OF THE SOFTWARE CLOSET.
And I know that this is only one problem that they are actually owning up to. As a Fuji user for the past several years Adobe has failed to solve image processing problems with the Fuji raw files. And of course there has been their wonderful subscription system.
WELL HEY ARE JUST TO LATE.
I made a decision several years ago to abandon every Adobe product on my Macs and I have never looked back.
In the past year so much advanced image processing software has come to market that have easily out performed Adobe Lightroom. On1 Photo Raw 2017.5, Alien Skin X2 Raw Layers, and my favorite out of them all PICTORIAL 3.0 raw software which is blindingly fast, uses the Mac file system (love it) and has incredible advanced universal and local adjustments for just about anything you want to do from total tonal control, sharpening, blur, noise reduction, soften skin retouching, healing, presets, frames, watermarks, textures, and the list just goes on and the developers allow local adjustments for just about everything. And for all of that it sells between 39.00 bucks to 69.00 bucks depending if you take advantage of the offer in the Apple Store or on their web site.
AND they do something that no one does. I mean no one does. Did I say no one does? Yup!!! They respond to any issues you may have so damned fast it will make your head spin. Where can you find them? Right Here When You Click
AND DID I SAY FAST? I SAID IT IS SO FRIGGIN’ FAST IT WILL MAKE YOUR HEAD SPIN.
Photographers struggling with painfully slow Adobe Lightroom performance take heart: Adobe knows there’s an issue, and fixing it is ‘top priority.’
