regarding software, it is hard to keep up, going through that myself at the moment, but it is possible to buy older versions of both Light Room and Photoshop on ebay that will work just fine. Newer versions, in addition to being subscription, require recent hardware with the newer standard format graphics cards. (Sorry, not enough of a geek to explain it further) My high-end Sony Laptop (with Windows 10) of several years ago cannot be updated as the card is integrated into the Mother Board thus not compatible with current Photoshop!
Thanks Easter! I will look around for retired software. From what you've written, and what I've read, it seems that the sky is the limit on what one could spend on this stuff (although if I had a stash of loot it might go in that direction!!

We're still under quite a bit of snow with an ice base so riding is still off in the distance.
