@andyfreist, I ran across a reply of yours about an Illustrator alternative. Maybe about $50-$60ish price range? Do you remember your suggestion?
I’m also looking for a Photoshop alternative. I have Canva and Stencil and want something more that is hopefully more intuitive than say a GIMP.
And as a last Hail Mary, is there a piece of software that (easily) removes backgrounds. I have some cartoony sketches on paper that I can scan into the computer, but I want to make the background transparent (or change it out) while keeping the lines from the drawing. Does such a thing exist?
