There is a monopoly on texture creating programs. Adobe basically owns the entire market. Adobe Photoshop is perfect if you want to create your own textures and geometry maps. There is no other program that does it as well. The only problem with this program, is that it is very expensive. If only there was an alternative to it.

I am happy to say that there is an alternative to Adobe Photoshop. It is called Gimp. This is a free alternative for texture creation. There are several brushes that you can use to create textures for terrain or object details.

It has a similar interface to Photoshop, however you get your money’s worth. It looks cheap, however it is very effective. You can do pretty much anything with it.

It has the basic layer system like Photoshop, and it is easy to arrange your work in a productive manner.

Gimp is good for compositing images as well. There are many color correction tools that you can use to tweak your final render to make it pop.

If you are on a budget, Gimp is a good program to use.

Happy Blending,
