Can't Afford Photoshop? FREE Graphics Programs
Are you excited by programs such as Photoshop, but can't afford pricey graphics/photo editing software? Well there is a solution! Great FREE software is out there for the taking. Much of what I reviewed is very similar to Photoshop. Of course, you're not going to get all the bells and whistles with a free program, but it will allow you to learn and use basic editing features... and create some pretty cool stuff.
To find and review FREE software, do a Google/Yahoo search for one or more of the programs below to see which will best suit your needs. The search will also show downloading links.
Gimp or Gimpshopdotnet (which closely immulates Photoshop), Project Dogwaffle, Ultimate Paint, Pixia, Skencil, InkScape, Paint.net, Brush Strokes, Sodipodi, Karbon14, ArtWeaver, Terragen, ImageMagick, or Blender.
