Photoshop Alternative

Post by Computer Guru on Mon Jun 01, 2009 1:05 am

Here are some good apps that can be used as a photoshop alternative, the good thing is that they are free! Suspect : (windows all)


all you want is a quick image retouch, Photoshop is overkill.
Paint.NET, on the other hand, is an open-source freeware editor with
all the essentials, including tools to crop, rotate, resize images,
adjust colors, and create collages.
Unlike most free image editors,
Paint.NET supports layers and has an actions manager. The pleasing
interface boasts semitransparent windows for ease of use.
I have
tried this software personally before and i like it's simple interface,
it's installation size is also smaller and it is also lighter on the

GIMP (Windows XP & Mac OS X)


is one of the most powerful general-purpose image editors around, the
upgrades make the GNU Image Manipulation Program eminently comparable
to Photoshop. Older features include channels, layers and masks,
filters and effects, tabbed palettes, editable text tools, and color
operations such as levels. New improvements include scalable brushes,
revised selection tools, a new color menu, full-screen editing, a new
crop tool, improved printing, red eye removal, perspective clone, lens
distortion, and more. It even has regex-based pattern matching for
power users.

This app provides professional tools that can stand
against the big boys without the hefty price tag. Even the installation
process has gotten simpler, with no need to download and install the
GTX Runtime Environment separately. Extremely powerful and easy to work
with, GIMP is ideal for both amateur and pro photographers, Web
designers, or anyone who wants to create and edit professional-quality
digital images on a budget.

Of the above, I recommend GIMP Cool
