Just like when people use the term “Google it” as being synonymous with searching for something online, people also use the term “Photoshop it” for describing graphic image editing. Although Google is free to use, Photoshop is not. In fact, it’s quite expensive by my standards.
In the past I’ve used several different freeware applications (such as PaintShop Pro), however, I’ve come across a new application that works very similarly to Photoshop. The program is called Paint.net and is freely available for the Windows platform. The developers update the software frequently, and it has a lot of capability (it does everything that I need!).
So if you’re looking for a good “Photoshop”-like application that is free, check out Paint.net!
