If you have never heard of or tried ON1 Software you should give it try. It is quite easy to use and is not a cloud based software. You buy download it and use it.
I myself have been using it for years and it has gone through many wonderful changes, the latest release is fantastic! No, I am not getting paid to say this although that would be nice.
For many years I have used Lightroom and ON1 as a plugin but since Jan 1 2018 I have not touched Lightroom and been using ON1 exclusively. Why, because now you can do importing with key wording and cataloging. The feature set is way broader than Lightroom and are much like if Lightroom and photoshop were combined.
But, it does lack a few things like the ability to add text and do some of the automated photo stacking like photoshop can do. This is not a big deal for me as I don’t do much automated stacking and just need something that I can quickly process RAW images with.
The tech support from the folks at ON1 is great and they also listen to user requests for improvements and features.
Here is a before and after example of an image.
