What photo program should I buy?

Episode 1215 (1:43:19)

Pat from Corona, CA

Pat has been making videos of his trips along with images that he's taken. He uses Paintshop Pro and nobody supports it anymore. Leo says it's high time to upgrade to Adobe Lightroom. Paint Shop Pro is well over a decade old and sooner or later, a company is going to stop supporting it, called "end of life." Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom is best designed for that. Even Photoshop Elements will get him mostly there. Better yet, the Adobe Creative Cloud Photographers subscription is only $20 a month.

The chatroom says that Paint.Net is a freebie and it's very similar. The chatroom also says that Corel still sells PaintShop Pro, so he may just need to buy the new version.
