krita (free photoshop alternative)

I’ve been playing with this a little, and so far it seems like a very useful program – much more intuitive than GIMP, which is a real horror to use, in my opinion. Krita has some very nice brushes. I’ve only had a short time to play with it, but so far, it looks great – especially for students who want a quick photoshop alternative. Krita saves in .psd format also.

It’s available in 32 and 64 bit versions. To date, there is no mac version.

  1. There’s an updated OSX build — still very experimental and buggy, but at least all the brush engines are included now: http://www.valdyas.org/~boud/krita-2.8.79.13.dmg. See https://krita.org/item/246-after-the-kickstarter for more details 🙂

    Paint.net and Gimp are a great photoshop alternative

      I’ve tried to use GIMP many times, I guess my reflexes are too ‘photoshopped’ to ever really get into it. I’ve always found it deeply frustrating. That maybe just me.

      Haven’t used paint.net, but thanks for mentioning both.
