Alternative Software for Adobe Photoshop

Asked By 200 points N/A Posted on -

Adobe Photoshop is the best photo editing software that I have seen. You need to buy a license to use it. I want to be able to edit photos for free that has the Photoshop functionalities.

The reason why I don’t want to buy a license is because I will only use the pictures to be posted on Facebook and other sites. I tried looking on the internet but didn’t find any.

I would also use it to create banners for the website I am promoting. Creating different designs will be fun. It will be more fun if it’s free.

This software enables its user to easily edit images with basic tools such as crop, rotate, brighten, and the like. Moreover, it supports multiple image formats, which is a basic feature for any photo editing software. Its interface allows the user to work at ease and navigate through the screen in a convenient way. Website:

2. Artweaver

Just like Adobe Photoshop, Artweaver features different brushes and pens that can be used to illustrate images. Whether you illustrate an image from an existing image, or create a new one, it can be easily done with this software.

Photobie, however, is not recommended for beginners because the tools and features can be complicated to use without enough experience in photo editing, although it looks a lot like Photoshop. Website:


The GNU Image Manipulation Program is a photo editing software can be used by both amateur and professional users. The software features tools such as layers, text, and color adjustments that are essential to any photo editing software.
