GIMP and Krita are both super popular free photo editors – and for good reason. GIMP has long been the best free photo editor with its long list of photo editing features and tools, plus photo manipulation effects, filters, and plugins that make it possible to do pretty much anything to your images. However, Krita has come up in the free and open source software (FOSS) world with its introduction of adjustment layers, full CMYK support, vector shape drawing tools, and its ability to open RAW images – all features missing in GIMP that its users have been requesting for a long time.
So, does this make Krita the better free photo editor? Can either program compete with Photoshop or Affinity Photo? Find out in this in-depth comparison video!
