Why there is no equal alternative for Photoshop ?
Mirage Closest I've seen is GIMP but it still lacks fundamental features and no direct support for EPS files either. For Windows, there's paint.net but still not as good as Adobe's flagship product.
Depending on what you need, there's some good stuff out there.
Affinity Photo, for example.
On the free side you've got GIMP, Photopea, Pixlr and others.
I have heard of Affinity. Are they good ? A lot of people think that they are as good as Photoshop. Never tried it myself.
Mirage Can't say I've tried it - but I've seen and heard some good stuff about it.
The same at my end too. It is ok to pay if the software is useful.
Mirage Indeed, and the software seems to be as much!
I personally use Lightroom and Photoshop though 😉
I am a hobby artist. So not much into high-end software.
Mirage As am I. 🙂
