The Best Free Photo-Editing & Graphic Design Apps

I love Photoshop. I’ve been using it for over 10 years now and obviously Adobe is doing something right over there because it’s now almost 30 years since the first version of Photoshop was made available. What I don’t like about Photoshop is the price. When Adobe was still selling the physical version of Photoshop (by physical I mean the actual CDs) it could run you anywhere from $700-$1500 if not more. Now that they’ve moved everything into the Creative Cloud, you’re looking at $10-80 a month for an individual license. There is only one version of Photoshop you can (legally) get for free, as long as you don’t mind you’re using software that’s now 10+ years old. Unfortunately, if you have an iMac or MacBook that’s 2015 or newer, you’re completely SOL. Apple stopped using the hardware that supports older software like CS2. Yay, structured obsolescence.
