Alternative to Adobe CC?

Is there alternative to Adobe CC?

Here is an assessment by Joel Lee on  article: The Best Ways to Open a PSD File Without Photoshop..

GIMP(free), runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux, can read PSD files.

Paint.NET + PSD Plugin (free and paid versions), Photopea Online Editor, XnView (Windows), IrfanView (Windows) are mainly use as an image viewer and converter.

If you want to view PSD file, use Google Drive; and if you want to convert PSD file to formats like JPG and PNG, use Go2Convert(free).

GIMP 2.10.0 (Release Notes) is here! I think it’s worth testing it out.

And there is Affinity Photo and Affinity Design.
