Best FREE Photoshop Alternative You’ve NEVER Heard Of???

– Hey everybody this is Roberto Blake helping you create something awesome today I use Adobe Photoshop pretty frequently

I use it for all of my graphic design work for the most part I use pretty much everything in the Adobe ecosystem It's done the graphics of this YouTube channel, the graphics for awesomecreatoracademycom, and the graphics for my podcast And while I'm still a huge advocate for Adobe products because of my experience with them, the fact that I've used them literally for about roughly two decades now

Well, I still feel like there should be some budget solutions for people who need them and for people who don't make a living yet from their digital art and their projects So in looking for free and affordable solutions, I came across something that I didn't necessarily expect I found a free alternative to Photoshop that wasn't Gimp What I ended up finding was a browser based application called Photopeacom spelled like peas in a pod

And Photopea is something that I really wasn't expecting A browser based version of Photoshop essentially that could open and save PSD files and the only caveat is that it does have ads on the sidebar and if you can put up with that then you're good to go and it won't cost anything The features are almost exactly like Photoshop and it's pretty easy to use One of the things that turned me on to this was I was looking for more solutions for my students in awesomecreatoracademycom and our mentoring program

I was looking for people who have bought the YouTube starter kit to have a you know, piece of software that wouldn't cost them anything extra just to go ahead and use some of the resources that I'm providing because when I built the YouTube starter kit, for those of you that are not familiar I build this graphic design package with over 150 downloads right now and I update it sometimes with new things Its like templates for YouTube channel artwork, templates for YouTube thumbnails, end cards, all kinds of graphics and I was like well, you bought this and its 99 bucks Do you also need to go out and buy software just to use it? And you know that was a little uncomfortable for some people so I was like well here's a list of budget software And I came up with things like Affinity Photo and Designer, and obviously Gimp is free, and Pixlr and things like that But then, there was Photopea

And I was like wow, well anybody could use this because it's browser based Even if you're not on Mac or PC, if you're on bloody Lennox you could use this So it made perfect sense So I wanted to just let you guys know that this is free software that you can take advantage of It's actually really good

Photopea isn't paying me anything They're not sponsor; there's no backend deal And they're an opensource platform so I don't know if they really could afford me if they wanted to influence their marketing and so just as long as this is around, I would take advantage of it if I was you If more people are using it or if more people decide to upgrade to the premium offering that they have then this will stick around and we can have good, open source solutions And I think this is a nice different approach

Photoshop will always be my bae It will always be my main program that I go to for anything that I need when it comes to graphics It's the thing that I know the most and I love what they're doing with machine learning to scale it and to make things just work even better and more accurately So I'm a big fan of what the Adobe team is doing I always will be but that doesn't mean I want you know, only focus on expensive solutions

I remember what it's like not to have a lot of money and to need open sore software or budget solutions so I will talk about them here on the channel from time to time even though they're not really the tools that I use the most So I won't be going super deep on them just because I'm not happy with the open sore solutions sometimes just from my perspective because the things that they're lacking are exactly why when I could afford it, I did upgrades and I bought into the new stuff and when you do that, it feels almost impossible to go backwards and you'll experience that for yourself or maybe you've experienced that in the past So, question of the day What software and solutions do you want me to make tutorials around? Some of you have asked for more video editing tutorials Those are going to come and I'm going to try and make them as simple as possible for people

A lot of you have asked me to do some more tutorials and training around camera gear so that's coming because I've got some new camera stuff And of course I've got a new drone coming in so stay tuned for that But I want to know, well what do you guys want tutorials on? What do you want training on? And I'll try to work it here into my content calendar and just see what I can do for you guys Definitely make sure you're checking out photopeacom
