13 Free Alternatives to Photoshop, Illustrator, Lightroom, & More

Joel Lee (MakeUseOf), 2016-04-25
There’s a lot to like about Adobe’s suite of creative software, but its chief selling point is the fact that Adobe is the industry standard for professionals. If you need the absolute best in terms of features and support, then you really have no choice: you need Adobe’s creative suite.
But what if you don’t want to spend $50 per month on a subscription? Sure, you can opt for a single-app subscription at $20 per month, or a photographer’s subscription at $10 per month — but if you’re an amateur or hobbyist, that might still be a tough ask.
The good news is that there are free alternatives available. The bad news is that they’re mostly unremarkable. They’ll get the job done but we don’t recommend relying on these for professional work. If you’re okay with that, then here are the best free options to check out.
