Comments about Krita as a Alternative to Corel Painter
Free, CYMK management, lighter. The previous comment is very strange as Corel Painter is not a photo editing app (and is very poor for this kind of manipulation).0
It is versatile, supports also Linux, has a fantastic developer team which is in close contact to the community and often feature requests are implemented within short time.1
It's specifically designed for painting and cartoons rather than a general purpose photo editing app.2
