Who Needs Adobe? Processing for Free

Event info

In this talk, Joe explores a selection of free to use programmes that will allow you to edit your images for free!

All the programmes shown will work on both Windows and Mac platforms and are completely free to use for personal (non-commercial) use.

In a fascinating and illuminating couple of hours, you will see a selection of different programmes which can potentially replace your Adobe subscription, or for beginners, give them a free path into image editing before taking the plunge into the paid programmes.

The capabilities of some of these programmes rival Lightroom and Photoshop - well worth taking a look to see if they might have a place in your workflow!


Joe Houghton is an experienced photography trainer, author of "Streets of Dublin" a guide to street photography, and an Adobe Certified Expert in Lightroom. He loves helping others develop their skills with both the camera and then in their postprocessing.  Joe was Nikon's trainer in Ireland for 12 years and has trained thousands of people at all levels of experience. Since Covid, Joe has delivered over 100 talks to camera clubs via Zoom, and is a sought-after speaker and judge for clubs all around the UK and internationally. HIs website is at
