Inkscape is an open source drawing tool with capabilities similar to Illustrator, Freehand, and CorelDraw that uses the W3C standard scalable vector graphics format (SVG)


It is a freely distributed piece of software for such tasks as photo retouching, image composition and image authoring. It works on many operating systems, in many languages.


DrawPlus 4DrawPlus 4
The award-winning DrawPlus 4 is the user-friendly drawing program that opens up a whole new creative world. With its amazing combination of powerful functionality, simplicity and professional quality output.

Project Dogwaffle version 1.2 (this freeware version)
is based on the powerful achitecture of Project Dogwaffle 2.0. It's a light, yet powerful tool for artistic expression. We felt that the aging prior free version (v1.11b) was in need of an update, since it was written for earlier operating systems and we wanted our new users to have the speed and power of our newer software architecture.


Dogwaffle 1.2 is not just a stripped-down save-disabled time-expiring trial demo of our full software - it's a fully functional version with some new features too. It is not save-disabled, there's no time-limit, no need to register, and there's no spyware or adware coming with it.


GIMP is a versatile graphics manipulation package. This page should help you get a taste of what GIMP is capable of. You can also have a look at our introduction page or browse through the tutorials.

Seriff aplications are pretty good but the Gimp is better. New version available free

I love it for having a little play when I get frustrated.

No probs. I hope people find that useful. It certainly is a great piece of software. I have the flaming text gimp also for fire lettering which i purchased many years ago. I am happy to get the old files out and uplaod here along with the additional files if any one is interested. If there isn't enough room i'll upload a zip to my bt vault and link you there.

Here is one I just came across:
Spiral Graphics (http://www.spiralgraphics.biz/index.htm) Use the link it is not a .com address :)

This is a cool software texture maker with many uses if you let your imagination go wild. While it is $149 USD for basic and $899 USD for Studio you can download the viewer for free. It will render out tileable images from its preset catalog. All the presets can be tweaked. It even makes some cool planets but the light source is fixed in the free version.

Cool .. I will add it

Fotographix, a simple image editor supporting layers.
Read most popular formats, including Photoshop and GIMP files.
It's multilanguage, portable and freeware software.

(well maybe not everything?)

Trust me, there's a lot of decidedly not useful free software out there. :lol:

Welcome to the forum. :)

Try to use RonyaSoft. It's very powerful and easy-to use. I like this poster printer (http://www.ronyasoft.com/products/proposter/)

I use Hiview from the university of Arizona.
Hiview is a data explorer and image viewing application impporting
JP2000 image format. I use it for Mars Planetology.

But, you need full of computer's capacity to do this, (ie: 32g/memory ddr3 at 2000htz); The image zooming from NASA is about 150 000 pixels.

Also you find it the incredible Image from geological map of Mars.
