I need Photoshop alternative under Ubuntu Linux for basic editing. I know Photoshop can be run using Wine but I’m not able to afford expensive software for just basic editing. Can you suggest a few free FOSS apps that works as alternatives to Photoshop under Ubuntu or Fedora Linux desktop operating systems?
