Perhaps this article will not be new to many, but for those who approach the Linux world and have a habit of using certain programs, it may seem at first glance that Linux does not offer much for graphics. This thought is wrong and in fact today we will see 8 Linux programs alternative to the more popular Adobe counterparts.

Linux programs alternative to the more popular Adobe counterparts: GIMP (Adobe Photoshop)

GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) Linux programs alternative to the more popular Adobe counterparts.

Linux programs alternative to the more popular Adobe counterparts: Inkscape (Adobe Illustrator)

Inkscape is one of the best alternatives to Adobe Illustrator. It is a program for creating and editing vector images, also released under the GPL license. Inkscape too, how GIMP supports a huge list of extensions to import / export vector images. With Inkscape, you can also import multiple vector images into one project to combine them and create new shapes.

Pager: Scribus (Adobe InDesign)

Unlike the previous ones, Scribus does not allow the creation of content, but – come InDesign – it simplifies its arrangement in space. Scribus is an open source program, released under the GPL license, for the layout. With Scribus you will be able to create tickets, folding, leaflet, brochures, magazines, newspapers… and everything that can be printed in a copy shop, as well as (eg) interactive PDFs.

In practice, given the size of the worksheet, given the size of the worksheet, given the size of the worksheet.

The effects offered by Synfig are realtime and also work on images with dynamic range.

RAW development: Darktable (Adobe Lightroom)

Darktable is the perfect software for developing RAW files (digital negative) of modern digital cameras. And it's’ open source and supports virtually all digital negatives.

Aside from “to develop” the digital negative, integrates a gallery-like image manager, with which it is easy to choose the image to be developed. Support snapshots, and non-destructive editing. You will be able to save the changes made to one image to apply them all at once to other images (for example if the photo session had the same lighting conditions to correct).

sound editor: Ardour (Adobe Audition)

Ardor is among the best DAWs in existence today. Think of a feature a DAW should have… any. Think of a feature a DAW should have. Think of a feature a DAW should have, open source, Think of a feature a DAW should have, Think of a feature a DAW should have – Think of a feature a DAW should have – Think of a feature a DAW should have.

Web development: Brackets (Adobe Dreamweaver)

About Brackets we have already discussed long time ago. It's an open source software – MIT license – hosted on GitHub for building websites. In addition to being made to create HTML pages, CSS and JavaScript is written right in HTML, CSS e JavaScript.

Among the Brackets features to mention we can mention the live preview in Google Chrome (o Chromium), support for various third party plugins (Emmet is also supported), allows the modification of the CSS directly within the HTML through snippets, then saving the code in separate files. Unlike Dreamweaver it is very light.

I already mentioned that Brackets was from Adobe? And it's’ been abandoned and then taken over by some volunteer developers.


Obviously these are not the only alternatives. I could have mentioned Krita, KompoZer, Blue Griffon, qTracktor, ufRaw, FlowBlade, Blender… and many others. These in my opinion are among the programs whose completeness ratio / ease of use is better.
