Some Linux Questions

If I was considering changing an old laptop to Linux what distro should I consider. I would be mainly using it for photography and maybe the odd presentation.

I'm sure there must be Linux equivalents of popular programs like Lightroom and Photoshop. Once again which ones should I look at?

Similar for doing presentations?

Any help would be appreciated

The laptop is a Samsung RS519. It can run Windows 10 64 bit but is quite slow at times. It has a Pentium Dual Core CPU, 4 GB Ram

Looks like I got this one wrong. I’m going away for a couple of days and for some reason I had in my mind that this weeks challenge was reflections. So I prepared a load of photographs that obviously had reflections in them and how wrong that was.  I…

Over the years I have written about many of the places I have visited in North Wales but never really shown you much of where I live; Prestatyn. It’s a typical small town bordered on one side by the sea and on the other by a range of hills, which are…

It saddens me to say this but I’m going to have to say goodbye to my trusted E-M1 from Olympus and seek a more robust camera. As regular readers will know I had a problem with my E-M1 whilst on holiday in Germany. It suddenly developed a green squiggly…
