There's no question about it: Most photography and graphics professionals use Adobe Photoshop. It's been the go-to photo editing program for graphic designers, photographers, editors and artists for many years.
Unfortunately, it's also quite expensive. The latest version of Photoshop costs anywhere from $10-$50 a month. Isn't there an alternative that has similar features but won't break the bank?
It turns out there is: It's called GIMP. That's an acronym for GNU Image Manipulation Program. It began in 1995 as a project at UC Berkeley, but it's come a long way since then!
In fact, it has many of the same capabilities as Photoshop.
