I am looking for lightweight Lightroom alternatives that have the following features. It's fine (even preferable) if this set of features is satisfied by multiple programs working together rather than a single monolithic program.
No catalog! This is my most important criteria. I want this software to work on network-mounted plain directories containing images (jpeg or raw), with no catalog or extra import steps.
RAW support. I need support for Fuji X-T10 and Fuji X-E2 RAF files, but obviously the more supported formats the better.
- A fast way of culling files.
Basic batch darkroom-style adjustements. I only do very basic image manipulation, mostly the same things I'd do in a traditional darkroom:
- color balance
- curves adjustement
- dodge and burn
I'd also like support for:
- noise reduction
- lens correction
I'd like to be able to do these opearations in batch over a set of files.
Native macOS look and feel. For example rawTherapee doesn't feel like a native macOS program. I'm okay with command-line programs where it makes sense.
I don't need this, but XMP support (in sidecar files) would be great.
I'm open to any kind of program, commercial or open source, as long as it has the features I want, and as long as it's not subscription-based.
