    Hi folks
    I never implied that people who need to use Photoshop etc on a professional basis should switch or even as a "Photoshop Alternative" -- I'm suggesting to only people who probably had it in the days where it wasn't a subscription product or have really old releases e,g Photoshop 5 that this is a Free very capable program that probably does as much as any even serious amateur shooter needs --albeit with some re-learning.

    It's extremely rare to find alternatives to robust tools designed for professionals for any software so if I gave the impression that pros could switch it wasn't my intention -- I'm merely pointing out that there are good serious products out there which can perform some of the most common functions of the professional products --other specialized bits aren't likely to be in common use by "casuals".

    Cheers

    For the record Jim, I never took it as such

    Merely posted I've been using Photoshop for ages and haven't needed to look elsewhere. That's me. And yes, it's good there are alternative out there that work. Also heard good things about GIMP for a free program.

    I'm also thinking to switch from Photoshop to Gimp. There was times when I would use Photoshop almost on daily basis, doing a lot of things and using it professionally, but I'm not in graphics designer field anymore and I rarely tuch Photoshop recently (don't even remember when I last used it). So, I think it's pointless to have it and paying for something you're not using or even having cracked version which isn't cool isn't a good idea in my case, so I'm thinking to uninstall it and use Gimp which is free that doesn't require money or some cracked software that god knows what brings & does in your computer. As, I said, I won't be doing anything professional there, but want to have it in case I need to do something that free editing tools that come with Windows aren't capable.
