    An open-source, free alternative with lots of good features. But it is slower in performance (tested in Windows 10) as compared to ACDSEE, XnView, and Faststone Image Viewer.

    Although it doesn't have a good asset manager, this is the best open-source, Photo ReTouching tool, however with a Steep Learning Curve. Its features more powerful and advance than ACDSEE and even Adobe Lightroom. I've almost switched to it from Adobe Lightroom.
