Alternatives?

Which application should I use to replace Photoshop now that Adobe have made it unfeasible for most photographers to use it (i.e. the CC version)?

 

I'm a Windows user so I'm guessing Gimp, PaintShop Pro and Photoline are my main choices, but which is best?

    20 bucks a month is hardly unfeasible.

    Feasible does not equal justifiable or, for many, affordable.

     

    If you've been accustomed to upgrading every three years, $20 a month works out to $720 for what you used to pay $190.

     

    Besides, how long do you suppose it's going to take for the monthly subscription fee to go up now?

    At this point, for photographers, Aperture, GIMP, Acorn…  Designers and illustrators are screwed.
