Can anyone recommend an Adobe Camera Raw alternative? Something that doesn't crash Photoshop when it opens?

Have you tried downloading/installing the previous build of CR?

Kevin, I have not tried that. However according to that page, this CR is compatible with the last two versions of Photoshop. I'm the latest.

ACR now requires a fully supported GPU to operate at all. That's most likely the reason.

 

What GPU do you have? Is it a laptop with dual GPUs? In that case they may conflict and you should disable the integrated GPU.

 

If you post Help > System Info we can see your complete GPU configuration.

If you want the High Power Graphics  card as the default, here are the Mac instructions:

Go into Apple System Preferences > Battery  Uncheck "Automatic Graphics Switching"

Also be sure it's unchecked under "Power Adaptor."

https://support.apple.com/en-us/102265

In MacOS 10.15 or earlier, this is under Energy Saving Preferences.

This is how, but note that I personally haven't had issues with either my 2015 15" MBP or 2019 16" MBP, both with Radeon cards. I have switching turned off (which can cause heat and battery life issues) but can run with switching on and no crashes.
