I notice that Corel has a few offerings and some are for OSX.

Aftershot Pro 3 appears to deal with RAW and DAM features

and of course

Paintshop Pro as an editor.

Anyone tried these out? I am always on a look out to dump Adobe products when possible.

This was a link from an article so if anyone else is curious who also have not tried of heard of the products - http://www.aftershotpro.com/en/

I started using Bibble. It was bought by Corel and users got a change to upgrade for 10euro/dollars to switch to Aftershot. Did that, tried it a few times, but the experience was horrible: slow, no updates etc. Stayed on Bibble and considering switching to Affinity Photo ( when it includes a DAM ).

Thanks for responding. I gather Aftershot 3 is the latest release. It is good that a few counterparts to Lightroom exist and ore so if we are not forced to pay monthly.

I tried Aftershot 2 when Aperture was discontinued. It didn't speak to me, and I never went beyond the trial. I haven't tried 3, but it would have to be amazing at this point.
