    Capture One may a viable alternative. The hard thing to find is something to replace the catalog management and batch editing of photos. Photo Mechanic is good, but it's not exactly a 1:1 replacement. I'm really surprised there aren't more Lightroom knock-offs.

      Capture One is very good, and an obvious choice if you're shooting with a Medium Format camera. I do slightly prefer the images that come out of it, though I'd be hard pressed to say why. IMO Lightroom's excellent image editing is more than good enough for general RAW conversion, and the interface/workflow is second to none.

      Wow, Capture One looks great. Definitely going to give it a try, thanks!

    Pixa is an app you could take a look at.

      It seems more focused on managing assets than photos. No Raw support or any advanced photo editing features, and it hasn't been updated since Mountain Lion. So, probably not. :(

    I had the same problem, and finally I chose Luminar. Here you can find a table showing perks and flaws of Aperture compared to other photo editors to make your mind https://macphun.com/luminar/compare.

    I'm really trying to give Apple Photos a good go, it has many benefits. Right now it doesn't really compare to others, but when App Extensions mature and there are some professional ways to edit photos on top of what Apple Photos provides, it could be really great. There is nothing quite like having non-destructive editing options across all the Apple devices. Doing quick edits on the iPhone, tweaking on the Mac, messing around in iPad. It's obviously not "professional" level yet, but I have high hopes for App Extensions... I say all of this, but I suppose I'm not really a professional photographer! :)

    Lightroom to "develop" and organise, Photoshop for heavy editing if necessary.

    I'm on Ubuntu Linux, so I managed all my pictures with Shotwell. But I must admit this software is horrible.

    I would like to see more alternatives in this field

    I use Lightroom, and store all my photos in Dropbox. Selective sync makes this really nice, and if a folder isn't synced Lightroom doesn't throw a fit.
