In Topic: How To Choose Photo Editing Software

21 January 2013 - 04:04 PM

For free software, The Gimp is by far the leader. It does have a steep learning curve, but then so does any of the commercial options mentioned here. On the upside there are a lot of tutorials available on the net so if you have the intention, learning how to use the gimp is possible.

Of the commercial options, I personally like corel photopaint, but then I have been using corel products since I was 10, and I had a computer with a green screen, so it could just be brand loyalty.

I do have a an older version of photoshop somewhere, but I never took the time to learn how to use the programme, so....

I think at the end of the day, it comes down to how much you are willing to spend.

If you have a big budget, may as well go for photoshop. It is the industry leader after all.

If you have a moderate budget, corel photopaint or adobe photo elements are the way to go.

If you have no budget, then the Gimp.
