Many people use Adobe’s popular Photoshop software to make some photo montage designs on their computers, as it has been standard procedure for quite some time. However, for a few years, the program has been included in a subscription package, which caused the rejection of several of its users due to its high prices and monthly charges.
That is why in this note we will show you two alternatives With which you can perform many of the functions that you require from Photoshop, but with the advantage that they are free and you can use them whenever you want.

GIMP, the free and open source alternative
It is a free software photo editor, which has an interface very similar to the one used by Adobe Photoshop and covers all the basic needs required for photo retouching.
It should be noted that many of the features that Adobe Photoshop has are not present in GIMP, such as CMYK color support. Some options are more complex in GIMP, but performance-wise it’s much better, since you don’t need to use as much RAM.

Krita, with native Adobe PSD support
Krita is another multiplatform free software, which has native support for PSD formats used by Adobe, allowing work on this type of file.
It covers all the basic needs of editing and correcting photos, although the main focus of this program is geared towards artists who draw.
