      dbbest 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.

      22Ezra22 Easiest to use and has the most features. With most Photoshop alternatives you cannot even re-edit text after typing.

      Henry220 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.

      Hank_Scorpio Missing loads of features gimp has. Can’t make layers. Selection tools are basically nonexistent. Disappointing.

      Pixlr E has a lot of the same features that GIMP has and Pixlr X allows to make minor edits to photos quickly. Both run in a browser without any need to be installed. And yeah, both are free to use :)

      At least with GIMP I can readily save my work anytime and be assured I can access it post-2020; with Sumo Paint, though I can blend better, it feels a little like I have to rush because, flash app (though there's a new plug-in-free version online now).
