I'm looking for an alternative to Photoshop because I believe it is just too big, too bulky and too expensive for us. Can you recommend anything else?
Yes, there are a wide variety of alternatives to Photoshop. Here's a short list of alternatives you might to look into:
- Adobe Photoshop Elements
This is a cheaper and less complex version of Photoshop from Adobe.
Platforms: Windows & Mac
- Google Picasa
This is a free photo editor from Google.
- Serif PhotoPlus
Has many of the same features as Adobe Photoshop, which means it may also be too big and bulky for you.
A great alternative for photographers who love working on a Mac.
- PaintShop Pro
A nice photo editing tool that's reasonably priced.
This by no means is a complete list and I'm sure there are dozens programs you can easily find by doing a quick search. I recommend you download a couple and use the program on a trial basis. Find which one works better for you and buy it if necessary.
Please let us know if you need anything else. Thank you.
