Who needs Photoshop if you can have Gimp for free. Let’s face it. Not all of us are graphic designers. Photoshop is this all and powerful graphic editing software. But, it’s also comes at a cost. It’s very expensive.
A typical user might need a quick and dirty graphic editor to fix a photo or maybe touch up a graphic. Maybe add some text, watermark, some drop shadows or change orientation of a photo. Gimp might be for you.
Why purchase Photoshop CS6 for $650 if you can get Gimp for nothing. Gratis. Well, at least give it a try. I’ve been using it for years. It’s great. I don’t need Photoshop.
In addition, Gimp 2.8 is available in all flavors of Linux, Windows, and Mac OS. Anyways, give it a try. Download.
