I'll add that I posted a current sale in this thread for all Affinity products. They just released their Designer for iPad platform. $48 for Affinity Photo Win or Mac and $20 for iPad. The iPad app was chosen the 2017 App of the Year by Apple.

I had been using FastStone to edit my photos (JPEG only) because it is free. It had been serving me well. Highlights, shadows, contrast, satiation, sharpen, etc

Are there other "better" free photo editors out there?
Best shopping deals I got from here:
Asus Zenfone 3 Zoom $300, ZTE Blade V8 Pro $175, Fluld 55' 4k TV $360

For the first year I used DxO Optics Pro... while technically paid software, it's available for free every few months from Digital Camera Magazine and I'm sure a few other places.

It processes my Sony RAW files and, according to what I read on the internet, is one of the best at lens corrections.

I've just switched over to Lightroom (this morning) because it really is the standard.

I used Lightroom until they decided to go Cloud and changed it to subscription base. If you want something comparable, I'd suggest Affinity. It's affordable and yet as capable.
