Stockport, United Kingdom (PressExposure) January 29, 2009 -- The list of Photoshop alternatives was drawn up after extensive and painstaking research on image editing applications. Alternatives to Photoshop that run on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux have been reviewed, outlining their various pros and cons.
Cartridge SAVE's Director Ian Cowley said: "As the price of ink cartridges, toner and paper has dropped, the cost of the industry leading image editing application has stayed quite high. In fact, in this current economic environment Adobe Photoshop is out of the reach of many individuals and small businesses. So we decided to compile a list of what image editors are available for free, or for very little money, and so our list was born."
Adobe Photoshop is the industry leading graphics editor available on Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X. Some of the best alternatives include the open source GIMP and the free Paint.NET, both extremely powerful and free to download and use. Other applications included in the top 21 alternatives to Photoshop include CinePaint and Pixelmator.
