Just looked at buying Photoshop CS6 and had a bit of a shock when I saw the price :ohmy: . Can anyone recommend a cheaper alternative?

Cheers,

Rob

Steal it!

Or, find a university student who can buy it at a massively reduced price

I've thought about buying it, but I'm too lazy to edit photos :S
oh, what fresh hell is this?

GIMP is supposed to be good. It does all your RAW shizz and if you can work it should do whatever photoshop does. I have Photoshop CS2 as it was free, I can't use that. I tried CS4 (i think it was), couldn't work that so just give up and now use Fast stone image viewer which has about 10 things you can adjust on it haha, struggle to use that sometimes!

:P

Fastone Image Viewer - genuinely free software - simple to use - does the basics very well indeed. I used to use it a lot prior to Lightroom.

Adobe Lightroom - much better for RAW images and is generally what i use for most stuff. Simple but amazing!

GIMP - Like a gueninunly 'free' version of Adobe Photoshop. Good but not AS good as photoshop. But its free and to be fair with a bit of know how does everything you could ever want. But its a step up in terms of learning how to use it compared to the previous 2 and in fairness is really aiming at far more than tweaking the odd photo and unless you're into full on graphic design its over kill for 99.9% of the time

Adobe Photoshop - rather like GIMP, Hard to use, and overkill for what you normally need. And of course ££££££'s

I have all four (by fair means or foul and Faststone or Lightroom will nail pretty much everything! GIMP for free can/will do anything you would ever need to do beyond this but much more complicated. Photoshop, even though i have latest version and have used it quite a bit over the years, i tend not to bother with for day to day photo tweeking.

I downloaded Gimp 2 in the end. Like you say, it's really good. Spent ages playing around with it merging different photos etc.

Turned this:
