Thumbs up LETS MAKE the best FREE software List

ok so i was thinking we should make a best free software file. Here is some stuff that i use a lot.

For simple vectors i use, http://www.inkscape.org/
If you dont have photoshop, i like http://www.gimp.org/

Also I love http://picasa.google.com/ for photo management and simple printing

need some stock images fast i use http://www.sxc.hu /

http://neatimage.com/ a great noise remover, I have the paid commercial version but there is a free version for home use


I love the site http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/ sometimes i find some programs there. also http://www.download.com/ has some nice programs too.

Thanks for the information.

Re: LETS MAKE the best FREE software List

The only thing that Matt has and I don't is Picassa. lol

Since we are talking about free (including places like Stock Exchange), I will also mention some cool free image hosting sites such as ImageShack and ImageOx. Also, for huge files (and of any type I might add, not just images), I use Mediafire.

AVG anti-virus is a good one.

And the Photoshop Impressionist plugin from Microsoft that a lot of people on this site use.
