Unfortunately Adobe failed to renew my annual subscription and provide a fix to its billing issues.

Therefore please suggest what other photo editing software i might use to replace Adobe Photoshop?

Hello

Yes, I did some research. But I'd like to hear Photoshop users opinion. I may not know of some new software.
So far it looks like GIMP is the best free option. And Clip Studio Paint with perpetual lisense might also have all functions that I need.

That's the rub, we don't know what you need.

 

For example, there is colour mode support. Some only need RGB. Others need Lab or CMYK or Spot Colours etc.

 

Some may require automation, actions or scripts. Others may never use them.

 

Your choice will also depend on your operating system, some alternatives are cross-platform, others are platform specific.

I'm working on Windows and occasionaly use iPad for sketcing. 
I mainly do digital art and some matte painting.

I do use actions for bunch editing layers.

I do not work with polyghraphy so RGB only will be fine.

Thanks, Affinity Photo looks good. 
I'm trying out Krita and Gimp now, if they won't be sufficient Affinity Photo looks a good alternative.

I like that it has same interface logic.

Most of us on this forum use Photoshop. Reddit might be a better place to ask your question.

 

One Adobe option is Photoshop Elements, which has a perpetual license instead of subscription. You can get a free trial to see if it works for you.

 

Or you can contact Adobe again about billing issues with Photoshop. Only Customer Care can help with billing. If you start with Chat, type "agent" to get a human, and ask for tier 2 support if you get someone who is not being helpful (standard advice for all customer service, not just Adobe). Why go through this? Because while there are alternatives, none come close to what Photoshop can do.

Maybe your credit card expired and you got a new one? You need to enter the new card information, or the subscription will stop.

I suggest you to use PicsArt photo editing software available for Android, iOS, and also for Desktop. If you're an iPhone user then try PicsArt first.
