The problem with a lot of the free Photoshop alternatives is that they are not much better then the standard paint software you get with windows. However, thanks to a software company called GIMP, you can now get a photo editing software that is almost as good as Photoshop for free.
GIMP is a free picture editing software that lets you create images, use as a simple paint program, edit images, photo retouching and much more. It has a easy to use interface that is user friendly. They even provide tutorials on how to edit, enhance and create pictures on their main site.
As you can see from the picture above the interface is similar to Photoshop, you can also see that there are many features making sure you get a very advanced photo editing software.
For those of you who need Photoshop quality without Adobe prices, the GIMP is hard to beat considering it is FREE!
