I hate Photoshop. Anons, do you have any good suggestions for an alternative? (for a 3D workflow, obviously)
GGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIMMMMMMMMMMPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPyou not by usingAfffinity Photo!
>>634327krita or gimpdumbass
Why do you hate PS though?
>>634327only a poorfag that is also retarded would hate photoshop
>>634329>gimpnot even once
>>634327PS is not only the easiest program to pirate but it's pretty much a standard. You can use shitty ass gimp if you hate it so much. Krita is for drawing and sketches

>>636803That is awesome! Thank you!
Sai is the simplest paint program imoI never used gimp or krita, but I heard good things about krita so you can use that if you're a poorfag.
>>636826Sai is great for drawing 2d toons ;^) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Td6MbJQavjsI heard its blend types are weird, and it's not really 3d oriented. I also cannot find where to buy it.>>636806You are welcome>>636803Paintstorm studio's Lifetime License and free lifetime update costs $19.00I recently watched https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W-pzSuQjaLQ and looking at the way they keep improving the software it really is a steal for that price.
>>636828>NO SPYWAREWhy the heck did they even write this on their product page? Shouldn't it be a given?
>>636826Sai doesn't have any color space management. You will fuck up your heightmaps or normal maps without any indication of what's going wrong. You can use it in very limited sRGB-contexts only. Basically it is inappropriate for cg.
>>634327Project dogwaffle or howler proThere really isn't much else that is as capable as photoshop sooo... getting over it would probably my be the best thing for you.
>>636835You're giving too much credit to the incredible amount of dumb people out there. They're just trying to cover their asses.
>>636855Well, it makes me suspicious from the get-go. Tell me I'm being paranoid, but yeah. No other company that I know of (and whose software I use) does that kind of shitty "advertising".
Any help for a relative noob looking for an alternative to ps just for normal and bump maps?
>>636888Really just use gimp or pirate ps for bumps. You can even download substance designer
>>636888I think this is cool for generating normal maps from colored textures https://store.steampowered.com/app/768970/ModLab/ it's free
>>636888Daily reminder that PS can't into 32 bpc and thus is useless for normal and vector displacement maps.
>>636891Gimp is shit, I have used photoshop for at least 15 years now and Krita or PSDfiddle.com are the closest in usability and have successfully used both in projects. GIMP has been a total failure every time I have used it
>>634327Paint.net is pretty good if you have the right plugins.(inb4 i get called a fag)
Gimp is incapable of handling multiple layers on a 4k texture for gaming models though. Always slows to shit.
>>636926If you have to defend yourself by getting called a fag, then deep down you know you're already one

For PC it is fantastic, Super fast and EXTREMELY configurable. You can get your workspace set up exactly how you want it and it has a powerful brush engine. However, lacks Text Tools and Effect layers. It saves natively as PSD so you can still bust out Photoshop or Krita if you need something not provided. Paintstorm's main selling point for PC is a speedy workflow.The iPad version isn't great. It runs out of memory quickly and runs slow. For iPad I use Artstudio Pro.
