A significant minority of Adobe’s Photoshop customers are, well, pissed at piczilla for dictating a forced march to a pay forever (a.k.a. subscription) software business model. If you have been looking for a Photoshop replacement and your needs are modest, Lemke Software’s GraphicConverter 8 might be just the thing.

With more than 1.5 million loyal users worldwide, GraphicConverter is a serious image editor. A big part of the appeal is the ready stream of updates chock full o’ features, tweaks and bug fixes. Par example…
