For a few years, I have been recommending Zoner Photo Studio Pro for photo editing as an alternative to having to ‘rent’ Adobe products.
For some unfathomable reason, ZP has decided to go the ‘rental route’, with monthly subscriptions. And if you don’t renew, the software is booby trapped so it will stop working. They don’t offer any other licensing except renewal payments monthly or yearly.
Since they have decided to go this way, I can no longer recommend it as Adobe alternative. You might as well rent Adobe Photoshop.
