      Krita vs Adobe Photoshop
      pros, cons and recent comments
       all • positive • negative      relevance • date
      gaengschter I was working with PS since v1.3! Since they started the Creative Cloud versions, they deliver no more quality, so I was looking for a alternative to PS, like Paint.net is. I compared MyPaint, Pixlr, GIMP, Krita and some more, but Krita was the best for me. Easy to switch from PS, no unstable App, can read PS files, and supports privacy by default (a big problem with PS and Pixlr).

      Was born as a sketching app, now it includes all the Gimp features. Plus new features recently introduced (for example Smart clone, that acts as the content aware brush in Photoshop). In my opinion it is much faster and useful than Gimp. Can be a valid Phototshop replacement.

      Paint.net as an alternative to PHOTOSHOP?! Er, no. It has bare minimums of editing elements, doesn't support objects, and is missing tons of features. It is a slightly more advanced Paint.

      Not a direct replacement, but if you don't need all the advanced features of Photoshop and going to do just quick editing, this could be a solution.

      It is a fantastic software. It is very versatile. Easy to learn. I have Paint.net and Photoshop on my PC and I use Paint.net much more often (as I do a lot of small edits). Don't get me wrong, Photoshop is superior. But it's also slower. And most edits can be done with the same results in both software programs. Only for Windows unfortunately. And it's free!

      Simple, no layers, but brushes are available. Cheap, light weighted and goes easy on your machine resources. Even as professional I do use Photoscape for a first review of my photos.

      Bigoukun It's a lest costly version of PhotoShop, with all the functions most peoples need. So if you absolutly need (or want) PhotoShop and aren't a pro, go for it.
