Yes, you heard that right…I don’t use Photoshop. *GASP*
It’s not that I don’t like Photoshop, I just never really
had made the time to really learn the ins & outs of it.
See, I’m all about efficiency and getting right to the point. So when I learned about these editing and design programs that (in my opinion) were easier and more efficient than Photoshop, I was all for it. And let me tell you, I haven’t looked back.
Here is a list of my favorite Photoshop alternatives. These range from beginner to advanced, web-based versions and phone apps you can use while you’re on the go!
PicMonkey || This is by far my favorite and most utilized program. PicMonkey allows you to do anything from designing your own image to editing photos and so much more. I really cannot stress how amazing this website is. I just recently upgraded to Royale and I am kicking myself in the ass for not doing it sooner. If you’re having trouble getting started with PicMonkey, Pinterest has TONS of tutorials to get you going!
Pixlr || I’ve only used this website a few times as it is a little more advanced than PicMonkey, but it is a great resource. Sarah from VTIM shares most of her blogging tutorials with this, it’s actually how I learned about it!
GIMP || I was recommended to GIMP by a graphic designer at work when I told him that I don’t use Photoshop. According to him, this is the closest program he has used compared to Photoshop. Also, it’s free!
Rhonna Designs || I love this iPhone app to edit pictures and create images. I actually created this image with only Rhonna Designs & a framing app. The options are unlimited to what you can do and the landing of this app showcases what others have created for your own inspiration. For $1.99, it is worth very cent.
Have you used anything other than Photoshop? I’d love to know <3
