      GIMP does not offer neural network editing and enhancing, replacing parts of photo... maybe... maybe with some external plugins

      I use BOTH Luminar and Photoshop because they complete each other. Luminar has much more photo editing features than Photoshop, but Photoshop has practically everything Luminar doesn't have (or things Luminar has but is a HUGE pain to use), like adding text.

    3. Affinity Photo is a professional, full-featured raster graphics editor. Working in Affinity Photo is always live and you can pan and zoom at 60fps, with live previews and non destructive application.
