I'm all about open source and indie software, but there are times when you can't deny how great an application is. As much as I've looked for alternatives to Photoshop, I've yet to find one that wouldn't leave me jealous for those still using photoshop. Even with the price, I can't imagine using anything else for serious design work.

Sorry Gimp and the others, you're just not there. Sometimes you just need professional grade software. There are great open source/indie text editors, you just don't find it in Photoshop alternatives.

I use Photoshop a lot and I don't think I'll be replacing it any time soon. There is nothing out there with it's relative usability or versatility. It is however a beast, as the comments below confirm. For basic image editing I use ChocoFlop. Yes its still in Beta, but it looks very promising. Oh and its fast.

It's so slow on my macbook so i run it in parrallels desktop

I still use CS which (unlike CS2) doesn't act like a virus by inserting itself everywhere. It's also a lot smaller.
Edit: briefly used GIMPshop on my other powerbook.......it seemed a lot faster than CS, but DIDN'T have all the functionality.
eg, I use individual style effects in individual layers a lot. This isn't included with Gimp. You have to download extra scripts and extra files to make it work and all the PS ones aren't available (yet).
To avoid the hassle I switched back to CS

Apple should make a competitor to Photoshop. Put some of the Aperture design team on there and poof! A universal version of photoshop with that Apple Application integration that we all know and love.

I'm using CS, not CS2 right now, and I haven't had too much problems with bugs. Memory hungry it is, though.

Runs terribly on my Macintel; I can't wait for the universal CS3

I really don't like it, but there's no alternative.

There are no alternatives to Adobe software, commercial or otherwise. They're decent at what they do, but I use the software more because nothing else offers their features.

Serious cons: all Adobe software is extremely buggy, very memory hungry and pretty slow (relatively speaking).

The GIMP is not a Photoshop replacement.

I also think this should be deleted in favour of the version-less "Adobe Photoshop"

This app needs its icon ! Would be cool if other users, not just the submitter, could upload an icon if there isn't already one.
