Adobe has recently price increases for Creative Cloud products of it, which includes editing software used by Adobe Lightroom photographers.
After this incident, many photographers felt dissatisfied with Adobe's work and wanted to stop using their software. Fortunately, there are a lot of replaceable software in Lightroom.
What you need to know before transferring the editing system
The most important thing in the photo editing process is the compatibility between users and software, so if replacing Lightroom with other software, the photographer will have to get used to them before being able to use it well. .

Along with that, other Lightroom software also has many differences that users should know:
Price: 60 USD, 318MB size
A highly customizable software, users can add or remove features according to their usage. With this feature, new users can simplify workspace, and add new things as the level increases. Luminar also has a feature called 'Looks', which applies full-image editing similar to Lightroom's Preset, but has a better preview capability.
The software also has several artificial intelligence (AI) editing features, but it is unclear how many of these include the contribution of 'artificial intelligence'. The most used feature is AI Image Enhancer, which increases contrast and color depth, but does not increase noise in the image.

ON1 Photo RAW 2019 is a very powerful software, so many features that it can run slightly on weak machines (unfortunately, Lightroom also has a similar situation). The nice thing about ON1 is that users don't need to 'Import' photos like Lightroom, but the software will automatically 'scan' the computer to find editable pictures.
Along with the usual editing features, ON1 also has a layer-like editing of Photoshop. In addition, they also have a few quick editing features for each individual shooting category such as 'Landscape' or 'Portrait'.

Capture One is the only software on the market today owned by a camera maker (Phase One) but can be used with all other cameras on the market. One of Capture One's biggest advantages over Lightroom is that the software's automated image processing capabilities produce better images (thanks to the long-term color research of Phase One).
Capture One is also used by many photographers to capture tethered images rather than Lightroom, simply because the software is better designed for this job. Like ON1, Capture One has full image editing and masking, but in practice it is faster. The biggest weakness of this software is the high selling price (USD 299 or USD 20 per month).

DxO Labs acquires Nik from Google 2017 and creates editing software DXO Photolab 2. The most 'point-to-point' feature of DxO Photolab 2 is U-Point, which helps users edit by layer by clicking on each component. in photos, not need to 'paint' time-consuming like Lightroom or Photoshop.
Some other good features of DxO Photolab 2 are DxO Smart Lighting – increasing the details of HDR or DXO ClearView Plus images – increasing the sharpness and blur (haze) in the picture. This is the most specially designed software, so it also takes time to study before being proficient.
Adobe not only has Lightroom, but also other software that works smoothly together. Because of this, those who have 'sunk' into the Creative Cloud system, using a lot of software, may be having trouble switching systems.
But for photographers, all of these options are good replacements for Lightroom. There are currently a lot of different introductory videos and photo editing tutorials, so now is a 'nine' time for those who want to learn beyond Adobe systems.
