Photoshop 2024 extremely slow save Mac M1

I wish there was an Adobe program that wasn't barely usable because of its massive amount of bugs. I really don't have time to be doing this. Really. Don't.

 

First question: does anyone know of a good replacement for Photoshop? I'm looking to get off the Adobe sinking ship. 

 

Bridge 2023 was showing blurry preview images. Ugh. Impossible for professional work. So I upgraded begrudgingly to 2024 knowing that it was going to be aweful as every upgrade is. Of course I had to upgrade the Photoshop with it.

 

Photoshop 2024 (25.2) has an etremely slow save time. By the time I'm finished editing the next photograph, the previous one is still saving! 

 

I'm working with a Mac Mini 2020 M1. I have 1.27 TB free space on my hard drive. Just did a full clean of the 

Adobe programs. Just upgraded my OS to Sonoma 14.1.2.

Depending on what you need the image editing application for, there may be no good alternative to Photoshop. It's impossible to make recommendations without knowing what your needs are and whether they meet or exceed the possibilities available from a range of software. You may just need to experiment by downloading some of these applications and seeing for yourself.

You do of course understand that the larger your files, and especially if you are working in 16-bit images, the slower the saving is likely to be. I am using a Mac Studio Ultra M1 with Photoshop 2024, and I am working with some files that go into the 1 or 2 GB range, and I don't find saving any slower than it usually was - in fact of anything its faster and more reliable. My OS is still Monterey. Eventually I may need to upgrade it, but I am more wary of OS upgrades than application upgrades.

If we are talking alternative applications, I don't know if this would work for you, but maximizing your use of Adobe Lightroom and not leaving the raw file environment unless you really need to is probably the most efficient and trouble-free way of working-up your photos. You only need to convert them to TIFF or JPEG for sending to clients. You can go straight from ingestion to print in your own work place in Lightroom never leaving the raw environment and never needing to press "Save", as everything is automatically kept where you left it last, history preserved, and it operates smoothly as butter. The most recent version of Lightroom has excellent general and local editing capabilities that are worth having a look at if you have not done so recently.
