In these days when everybody seems to have access to the internet in one form or another, whether it is via a PC, laptop or just a hand held device, more and more applications seem to be available every day. Whilst many of these so called apps may not be of very much use, one that certainly has become popular is Photoshop. Photoshop has been created by Adobe and is an application which can be used to design or create different images. It is very versatile in so far as it can design artwork, 3D images, photos and videos and is therefore used on many of the images and videos we see on the internet today.
The Photoshop app is now available in many different forms, one of which is the touch pro. This is an application which has been designed for use with touchscreen technology and so by just the use of 2 fingers on the screen, you can enlarge or decrease the image size, rotate the image and by merely tapping the 2 fingers can return to your last image display. These apps are readily available and so can be used by anyone that uses the internet and so, as mentioned, nay have been used on many of the images and videos we see on the internet today.
Although readily available for everybody to use, it does however cost money to buy and so that has prompted other developers to create something similar which they can distribute for free. One of the developers which have already done this is Gimpshop. The app developed by Gimpshop is absolutely free and can do all that Photoshop can do and in some instances perhaps even do it better and to assist people in using it to their best advantage, there are even Gimp tutorials available to help them. This app can be used with both black and white images and colour images, with the ability to change one to another and has a very user friendly set of tools.
There is little doubt however that Photoshop is a very useful app and most would certainly agree that it is worth the money they spent to acquire but, why not get the same abilities at no cost at all?
Whilst there are developers creating new apps to buy, there will always be developers trying to copy their abilities and provide them or free and so perhaps in future, before we actually buy an app that we have seen and liked, we first check around to see if there is a free version that can do the same. There are several developers like Gimpshop that will always try and bring you the latest technology for free and so even if you can afford to buy a particular app, why bother when you can get it for free and appreciate the work that over, less well-known developers are doing outside of the hype of large advertising campaigns and other media hype. After all, why should you have to pay to be creative.
