hey, I tried searching for this answer but not sure which software torrent sources to trust anymore nowadays. where should I look to pirate a working cracked version of lightroom for windows? I remember other adobe products being painful to get to work with a crack some fifteen years ago too.

I’m sorry if you’re not allowed to ask stuff like this here but I thought I would try since I trust my fellow pirates more than random searches.

    If you absolutely need Lightroom and no other alternate would work for your use case, I’m sure 1337x.to will have it. Otherwise, I would recommend Darktable as an alternate. It is free, open-source and just as powerful.

      I’ve tried darkroom but so far it has been a confusing and frustrating experience. I am willing to learn it with time but in the meanwhile I really need to get some photos edited and out. But thank you I’ll try that site

        Same experience with darktable. It seems to do the basics, but the workflow is just so much more cumbersome.

    Is there a megathread around here? Can someone share a link if it does exist?

    Can I ask what’s the feature that Lightroom has but darktable doesn’t?

    Adobe products should be avoided even if free

    Photoshop doesn’t have a real free alternative, but Lightroom has an almost 1:1 free competitor

      I’ve tried darktable but so far it has been a confusing and frustrating experience. The program doesn’t have some of the options that guides suggest and some modules completely break the image and won’t allow you to control z backwards. It’s probably user error partially but while I learn that I really need to get some photos edited and out with something familiar.

      I really wanted to use something FOSS or at least non-adobe, but after a few hours gave up and bought a year subscription for Lightroom.

      My use-case: on Android tablet I need a rating/flagging functionality with photo management. It just doesn’t exist outside of Lightroom unfortunately.

      I use Darktable on Laptop. There is no iOS/Android version.

      Open for suggestions if I missed something.

        yes unfortunately on tablet there’s no replacement, and if someone is in the adobe ecosystem can pick up the work very easily on desktop if everything is saved in the cloud

      I use darktable nowadays. But last I used lightroom it had merge to hdr and panaroma features which were great.
