Almost missed this hence the late reply.
Every year, just before my Adobe subscription comes up for renewal, I try out the competition to see if there really is a viable alternative to Lightroom and Photoshop. Late last year I tried out SilkyPix as I had fond memories of it when I received the then current version with a Fuji digital camera many years ago.
I know all software is sometimes a matter of necessity, technical or financial, but is also very much about personal choice and feeling comfortable with the UI. Personally I was underwhelmed when I tried SilkyPix Pro recently; not much power, too few features and far too much money. The initial cost of the Pro version would get over a year's Adobe sub. Alternatively Serif's excellent Affinity Photo 2 is a whole lot less, well featured in comparison, well supported and there's a large user base to draw on.
