I've used PS on windows, of course Gimp became my main photo editing program when I started using Linux. Because I'm just an amateur, can't do any comparison, also can't say that I miss any of the options which comes with PS.
But I liked this, have installed it and it works, except for the launching. Somehow it does not add it to the menu under the Wine apps. But I can launch it, navigating to the installed folder.
Personally Affinity Photo and Designer are better applications and cheaper than Adobe but can achieve the same reults - Solution? Install Windows on Virtual Machine Manager and then get Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer - a lot cheaper - one off payment and no rental. A design company (We Design) ditched Adobe for Affinity because the workflow is so much better. There is also Affinity Publisher.
Affinity Photo and Designer work adequately with 8 Gb RAM - they are on my eldests 8 8Gb Windows 8.1 Pro 640-bit Machine. With Adobe you get an awful lot of bloatware. For example, Adobe Reader 9.0 was over 100 Mb in size, Sumatra PDF at the time 10 Mb!
True. I want affinity more than adobe though some companies, even when I do freelancing, asking for Adobe products to be used? HWhen I looked at some works made in Affinity ohoto and designer, it made me wow.
