I want to learn how to edit photos, create interesting graphics and create images that I could use for my websites.
Many of my friends told me to use Photoshop. But the legit copyÂ of it is very much expensive.
Some of them advised me to get the GIMP. They said it’s free to download.
But my question is: Which is better among these two photo editing softwares, Photoshop or GIMP?
For a long time already, I was using the GIMP. Almost all functionality of the PhotoShop is there already. And the most important thing is, GIMP is smaller in size and eats up smaller amount of PC memory resources compared to the PhotoShop. I can even use it on my laptop that has smaller memory or just placed it on a USB memory stick and use it anywhere where there’s a PC.
And besides, GIMP is free while PhotoShop is expensive.
If you want to get a copy of GIMP, just go head here.
A simple Note
But if you’re a professional making money by creating sophisticated images, photos or graphics and print them on printable materials, then I suggest you invest for the latest version of the Photoshop.
