Comments about Krita as a Alternative to GIMP
Krita has effect layers like Photoshop and the most powerful brush engine2
It's has Photoshop like gui.0
It's more of a painting tool than image editing.7
Krita is more for painting, not photo editor2
It is really AMAZING how this piece of software has evolved in a short time. Just a year ago, it's true: it was just kinda Illustrator alternative. But nowadays Krita incorporated a lot of features that can for sure make it a good substitute for PS or GIMP as well. A good bunch of filters, layers and styling options for layers, adjustment layers, RAW support, very nice interface (way more producer-friendly than GIMP). I'm really surprised on how this project is evolving.0

Affinity Photo Features
Comments about Affinity Photo as a Alternative to GIMP
Very similar to Photoshop and a great photo editing program for only $504
GIMP is free and Affinity is not, however, Affinity photo isn't expensive and it has non-destructive editing and superb capacity for making selections. GIMP doesn't have these features yet. For me, GIMP is straight forward and a great workhorse, but I find myself using Affinity Photo more and more.6
It's a considerably cheaper version of Photoshop.2
Well it's not free, but for 50 bucks it's still a steal. And no subscription nonsense like "that other photo editing app"…6
Low price for many features that are very close, if not better that Photoshop's.8

Adobe Photoshop Features
Comments about Adobe Photoshop as a Alternative to GIMP
Generally - photoshop is a very good tool, with a lot of staff inside. It's a quite good alternative if a pricing is not a question.1
Its not free, should not be listed on par with GIMP3
Easiest to use and has the most features. With most Photoshop alternatives you cannot even re-edit text after typing.-9
Yes, PH costs a lot. But It's still very effective there are much more features for a professional photographer and to my mind PH has more convenient workflow.-6
While it is not free to use forever, you can make better images like Adobe Lightroom CC and Paint.NET.-14

MyPaint is for drawing/painting not for any type of photo editing.15
Pixelmator is a powerful, beautiful, and easy to use image editor. Featuring an elegant and streamlined single-window interface, it puts all the focus on the images you edit, rather than what's around them.

PhotoScape is a fun and easy photo editing software that enables you to fix and enhance photos.
Comments about Photoscape as a Alternative to GIMP
GIMP is BIG because it has countless tools that make it a true photoshop rival. Photoescape has a beautiful interface but is focused on implementing effects on ONE single photo at a time. CROP functions and LAYER management very very limited. Unsuitable for complex professional creations. Good instead for amateurs and hobbyists of photography.1
Photoscape is a great program, I use it myself but won't do the more complex editing GIMP can do.-1
