    Any good free graphic design apps for Windows 10?

    I’m making do with Photoshop CS but its just not cutting the mustard.

    Scribus is functional and capable but perhaps not as Intuitive as commercial alternatives.

    It’s not free but Affinity is worth the money.

    -Gimp is free haven’t used it in a while but was/is one of the best photoshop alternatives back in the 00’s when I last used it..

    -Inkscape free good for vectors and design work. But buggy last time I used it crashed when doing simple things.

    -Clipstudio not free but is also meant to be a lot better than Photoshop for drawing and even vector work.

    -Paint Tool SAI again not free but a lot cheaper than photoshop and is meant to be a lot better than photoshop for drawing.

    Photoshop isn’t deisgned for graphic deisgn, rather editing photos. Alot (but not all) of its functionality has been bundled into Lightroom these days – at least for my purposes. Anyway, it’s pants for graphic design – you’re essentially trying to create a Turner seascape with a biro.

    Illustrator is the Adobe package your after, and naturally is wildly expensive. Inkscape is a free, albeit occasionally frustrating, equivalent.
