Adobe photo is a very fine and useful photo editing tool made by Adobe,Almost every photo developer use Photoshop, it has many useful effects, brushes and many other things which allows you to put special effects on your image.

Actually if you ask me, Photoshop is a professional tool and if you don’t edit pics like pro and only do small things like put text, small effects or adding one pic over other then you wont go for Photoshop as it is very costly app and heavy too.

So after receiving many emails,I do a research and downloaded many alternatives on my machine and here are 5 best alternatives for Adobe Photoshop, and the best part is that they are FREE and not so heavy to freeze your machine.
