Tham gia trọn bộ ứng dụng Creative Cloud của Adobe là một đề xuất đắt giá: khoản lùi $ 53 / tháng (tính đến thời điểm viết bài này) có thể là quá mức cần thiết cho nhu cầu của bạn trừ khi bạn đang sản xuất nhiều phương tiện với nhiều định dạng khác nhau. Tất nhiên, bạn có thể đi từng phần, nhưng bạn vẫn sẽ phải trả nhiều hơn một chút so với đăng ký âm nhạc hàng tháng thông thường của mình để chỉnh sửa ảnh / video / âm thanh / trang in / v.v.. Và sau đó là phí hủy, có thể là một cú sốc không lường trước được nếu bạn đang cố gắng thoát khỏi gói hàng năm sớm. Không phải ghét Adobe, nhưng nếu bạn đang tìm kiếm các giải pháp thay thế có chi phí thấp hơn, không tốn kém chi phí hoặc đơn giản là không cồng kềnh để làm việc với một số ứng dụng của Adobe, tôi sẽ giúp bạn. Ví dụ, mặc dù không có gì đánh bại được Photoshop, nhưng có rất nhiều công cụ rẻ tiền bạn có thể sử dụng để hoàn thành phần lớn những gì ứng dụng cho phép bạn làm. Tôi có dám nói không, những ứng dụng “nhỏ hơn” này thậm chí có thể phù hợp hơn, vì bạn không thực sự cần một đống ứng dụng chỉnh sửa đồ họa nếu thỉnh thoảng bạn chỉ thực hiện một chút cắt xén và chỉnh sửa màu sắc. Tôi sẽ nêu bật một loạt các ứng dụng Adobe thay thế trong hướng dẫn này, nhưng nếu bạn thiếu kiên nhẫn, đây là danh sách đầy đủ:

Affinity Photo [Adobe Photoshop]

Affinity Photo isn’t free, but it’s a subscription-free graphic-design program for Windows, Mac, and iPadOS that offers more than enough firepower in a pleasantly designed interface for most people’s graphical needs. The desktop versions cost $50, which sounds like a lot up front, but not so much when you consider that a typical PhotoShop subscriptions starts at $21/month. However, deals can be had. As I write this, Serif is running a 50% off sale for all versions of the app, which makes the price pretty compelling if you’re looking to do some photo editing or graphic design—basic, intermediate, or advanced techniques.

Free trial: Yes

Price: $50

Platforms: Windows, Mac, iPadOS

Photopea / SumoPaint [Adobe Photoshop]

I love Photopea so much, it’s earned high placement on my sprawling list of browser bookmarks. What it lacks in a dedicated desktop app, it makes up for in being a completely free alternative to Photoshop that clones its UI and features as best as a web-based app possibly can. It’s so good, I’m surprised Adobe hasn’t tried to sue it out of existence yet. And it’s the very first website I turn to whenever I’m using a new laptop/desktop, or borrowing a friend’s, and haven’t had a chance to set up any kind of dedicated graphic-editing app.

I wouldn’t use Photopea as my daily driver, but it’s the web app I turn to whenever I need to edit an image in a pinch.

Free trial: n/a

Price: Free (with supplemental $9/month premium subscription, if you want)

Platforms: Windows, Mac

Web-based photo editorSumoPaintis free to use, and its UI reminds me of a stripped-down version of Photoshop. I’d venture to argue it’s probably a better fit for someone who really just wants the basics without any needless buttons, settings, options, or other headache-inducing things to click through. And there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that; if all you need is a screwdriver, why bring along a Swiss Army knife?

Free trial: n/a

Price: Free (with an optional $9/month premium subscription, if you want)

Platforms: Windows, Mac

GIMP / Glimpse Image Editor [Adobe Photoshop]

I’m not a fan of the GIMP name, but I the GNU Image Manipulation Program has been an open-source alternative to Photoshop for as long as I can remember—decades, really. While I never found it to be as feature-filled as PhotoShop, but before Photopea, it was the software I’d turn to whenever I needed to make some edits on a system that didn’t have a graphic-editing app installed. GIMP is fairly easy to use, but even if you have to spend a little time getting a feel for the app, relish in the fact that you’re paying absolutely nothing to use it.

Then there’s Glimpse, a fork of GIMP that’s reasonably up-to-date (though it isn’t based off of the latest version of the GIMP app as of this writing). However, if you really detest that name, it’s a perfectly fine alternative.

Free trial: n/a

Price: Free

Platforms: Windows, Mac

Krita [Adobe Illustrator / Photoshop]

I can’t draw for beans, so this isn’t really the app category for me. However, I (and others) have previously praised Krita for its ease of use and comprehensive feature set for doodles, artists, and professional drawers alike. It’s developed by actual artists—so you know all the new updates and features are things they’ll actually use themselves—and completely open-source and free to use.

The only major downside to the app is that there’s no real customer support, so if you’re having an issue or are confused, you’ll need to hit up the community forums to find a solution. The app is also only available for Windows and Mac desktops; no tablet or phone versions of the open-source app exist, alas.

Free trial: n/a

Price: Free

Platforms: Windows, Mac

Inkscape [Adobe Illustrator]

This free and open source app has been around for nearly two decades, and it’s frequently mentioned as a compelling alternative to the pricier Adobe Illustrator. If you can get past a bit of a learning curve with Inkscape’s UI, especially if you’re coming from a tool like Illustrator, the app should be pretty decent for all your normal needs. (Professional designers might want to stick with a slightly more robust app like Affinity Designer or Corel Draw. And if you’re on a Mac, be prepared to try an alternative app if Inkscape doesn’t quite do it for you.)

Free trial: n/a

Price: Free

Platforms: Windows, Mac

Scribus [Adobe InDesign]

Yes, it’s another free/open-source app that’s been around for nearly two decades. I mention that, as that’s usually a pretty good sign that a particular app has legs. You won’t waste a year mastering it, only to discover the app’s developer has stopped working on it just when you’ve decided to use it exclusively.

Scribus is basically the only free/open-source alternative to InDesign—at least, the only one worth spending time on. Other paid apps exist, including the delightful Affinity Publisher, but I’d hesitate to jump ship to a paid app if you’re just getting started with pagination. Similarly, if you’re just looking to complete a basic page-layout project, Scribus is probably all you’re going to need.

The downside? Scribus can’t read raw Adobe InDesign or QuarkXpress files. You can get around that using .XTG or .IDML imports, but it’s not quite the same.

Free trial: n/a

Price: Free

Platforms: Windows, Mac

RawTherapee / Darktable [Adobe Lightroom]

Based on the reviews, it’s hard to really pick a winner between these two free (open-source) alternatives to Adobe Lightroom. So why not try both? Pick whichever makes the most sense after you’ve had a chance to check out each app’s UI, organize your sprawling photo library, and perform some (comprehensive) non-destructive editing of your .RAW files. Hell, you can even try ART—an easier-to-use version of RawTherapee—if you start to feel overwhelmed.

I’d go with Darktable for my desktop PC—but that’s only because I’ve used it before. I’ve barely spent any time with RawTherapee, but given how much I’ve seen it praised around the web as a true competitor to Darktable, I’d absolutely want to try it out before making a final decision.

Free trial: n/a

Price: Free

Platforms: Windows, Mac

Various [Adobe Acrobat]

Welcome to software Hell. About once a year, I find myself needing to find a freeware or open-source alternative that lets me open, edit, fill out, and sign .PDFs. Adobe Acrobat makes the process painfully easy, but that convenience will cost you $13/month at minimum (sigh).

You should be able to view and fill out PDFs in your web browser (or, if you’re a Mac user, the ever-handy Preview app). If you need a bit more firepower, you might be able to get away with the free version of PDF-XChange Editor, as long as it doesn’t drop a watermark into your document for whatever feature you’re using. And on the Mac, I’ve long been a fan of PDF Expert; it’s cheap, it’s great, and I use it to sync and edit my files on my Mac, iPhone, and iPad. I haven’t checked out the web-based Sejda, but if you’re looking to edit a quick document (given you only get three free documents to edit each week), it’s worth a shot. Same goes for Xodo, which lets you do everything but edit the actual PDF. It has a Windows app, too, in case you want to give that a whirl.

DaVinci Resolve [Adobe Premiere]

This one’s easy: If you need a video editing tool that’s every bit as powerful as Adobe Premiere—minus a few extreme limitations for the app’s “free” versions over its paid version—then you’re going to want to check out DaVinci Resolve. Sure, there are other free/open-source alternatives, such as Olive or Kdenlive,but DaVinci Resolve is a beast. Features, UI, stability, you name it; if you’re not wasting hours of your live becoming a master of Adobe Premiere, work on levelling up your DaVinci Resolve skills.

Honestly, I haven’t found better praise for this software than this Reddit thread that compares these three apps. As one user writes:

“So unless Open-Source is critical to you, Resolve is always the right answer. The power, the features and the refinement that it provides in its free offering is quite simply astounding; so much so that you’ll end up wanting to buy the (comparatively affordable) Studio version not because you really need it, but because you want to reward a company that treats is free users so damn nice.”

Hard to argue with that!

Free trial: n/a

Price: Free (optional $299 perpetual license for DaVinci Resolve Studio)

Platforms: Windows, Mac

Audacity [Adobe Audition]

Audacity has been my go-to audio-editing app of choice for as long as I can remember. I’m not looking to make the next deadmau5 track, or score a movie, and there are plenty of other tools you can use if that’s your thing. For basic edits—creating ringtones, tweaking narration to drop into a YouTube video, or editing podcasts—you can’t go wrong with the free and open-source Audacity. I love Adobe Audition, I do, but when I don’t need to pay for all of its firepower (and lovely UI), I reach for Audacity.
