I looked at the pricing of Adobe Photoshop versions in the Adobe site. I only have this small project on image editing. What I need is an open-source free program like the desktop photo shop software. Could someone provide me with a good photo editor software with the likes of photo shop? Where could I download it  for free?

Hey,

Here are some free alternatives to Adobe Photoshop – 

My favorite amongst these is Gimp. Gimp is very close to Photoshop in term of tools and quality. Moreover, Gimp has a large user community. You can also find a tutorial on the official site.

Best of luck.

Regards,

Sanders Danny
