Editing PSD files

by tgo 7 replies
I have been reading some of the past posts, but I was wondering if GIMP or Paint is easier to use to edit PSD files. Nothing really fancy just editing some text or size of images.

Or if there is another software that is better please let me know.
Thanks

  • Is Photoshop out of the question? If you need it for only a short period of time, I am pretty sure you can download a free trial...

    Well, I did not really want to buy photoshop since I won't be using it alot. I would probably use it more than just the trial period. Thanks.

    Just use GIMP. It's free and it will work for what you want it for I believe. I'm not sure I've never used it but I'm to understand it will open up Photoshop PSD files.

    When editing PSD's as you dont have photoshop Im guessing you just want to edit something basic like the text? GIMP cant do this as it rasterizes the text layers.

    Also, if you need photoshop, look around

    There is a plugin for Paint.NET that lets you edit PSD files. GIMP edits them natively, right out of the box.

    I detest GIMP. It is an absolutely hideous misfeature of software design. It is effectively PhotoShop reorganised by software developers to "make more sense."

    To software developers.

    Which would actually make some damn sense, if it were a program for software development.

    But it's not. It's a program for image editing and manipulation. Something which software developers, by and large, do not understand anywhere near as well as PhotoShop - the gold standard for professional image editing and manipulatrion - has evolved to represent over the past fifteen years.

    But I use Paint.NET, because I don't really do image editing and manipulation anyway. I do image creation. PhotoShop is really not designed or intended for that, and my previous application - Paint Shop Pro - decided it would really rather be another PhotoShop instead of the distinctive (and, IMO, superior) application it was.

    Scratch another "lifetime free upgrades" purchase. In fact, now that I think about it, I've got exactly one of those that still doesn't suck: UltraEdit32.
