    Top 22 Free Photoshop Alternatives, Latest

    There are dozens of free photo editors designed to enhance your pictures with a couple of clicks, but far fewer could be called a genuine alternative to the industry standard editor Adobe Photoshop. Simple photo-enhancing software has its place, but a genuine Photoshop alternative needs more than just red-eye correction and a handful of retro filters; it has to offer layers and masks, batch-editing, and a wide assortment of automatic and manual editing tools. It also needs plugins to fill any gaps in its feature-set, and enable you to work as efficiently as possible.

    What is Trend Forecast?

    The Trend Forecast Who decides that the color this season is “mint green” or that denim jackets are “back?” Of course, there’s top-down fashion, where couture houses and runway shows set a trend that trickles down through the rest of the industry. But these two methods are for the relatively cutting-edge.

    How do Fashion Trends Come from?

    What is a trend and How does it come from?

    A trend is a social process in which style or taste changes. This can be about changes in how we dress or what we eat or what we like to watch in television.
