I've been testing Adobe Lightroom 2 for a while now and it's amazing. But the problem is that it costs about $300 where I live and it's much more than I can afford. If I could spend $300 on photography right now, it would be much wiser to get some nice photo equipment. That's why I'm asking you, if there are any free alternatives. By alternative I mean software that allows keeping my photos in some kind of a simple library (keywords etc. are not important for me, I am storing photos by dates and I'm fine with that) and applying non-destructive edits to my jpegs (no need for raw). I know Adobe Lightroom is probably the best software in this case, and I am not getting anything similar for free, so I am ready to use software with much narrower functionality. I just have no idea where to look for it.
