Adobe Fireworks – the best replacement?

Okay yes back in 2011 and 2014 similar questions were asked.

But now that it is on the cusp of 2020, my question is who HAS FOUND a replacement to Fireworks that they LOVE and would highly recommend?

I have been using Fireworks from the start. I am still using Fireworks CS5 because my needs are so basic and Fireworks just works.

But I am starting a new project that will require 3 to 4 hours a day creating web-graphics for Instagram users to post and share.
Super simple text with shadows over a collage of cropped images with inset bevels. No-brainer stuff. Just grunt work. Open -> crop -> resize -> shadow -> bevel -> save -> repeat. No image color correction/manipulation.

So who has found a light-weight simple MAC interface for the most basis of graphic/image creation? Fireworks version 2020?

Or should I stay with Fireworks CS5 cause it STILL works?


I use Affinity Designer as a replacement for Fireworks. I also use Graphic by Picta which is pretty good too, but vector only.
