What are some free alternatives to Photoshop? Illustrator?

Category: Graphic Design


There are actually some pretty spectacular alternatives to Photoshop and Illustrator. Whether they are web based or open source based, they are often the perfect economical alternative to the professional software sold by Adobe. That being said, they don’t offer all of the bells and whistles and it can be difficult making the transition from Photoshop and Illustrator to open source, but it can be done. Most of the applications and software listed below do a pretty good job of impersonating the big boys.
