Free Graphics Programs I Like

Here are some free graphics design/editing programs that I happen to use from time to time and like, now I'm not a great artiest but these programs make even my stuff look fairly good. It's a very short list so don't run for the hills just yet.

Plus I know the phobia people seem to have... if someone can make money by someone clicking on a link then people seem to avoid these links like the plague, but have no fear these are not affiliate links so click away. 

GIMP stands for GNU Image Manipulation Program. Today it’s available in versions for Linux, Windows, and Mac. It's a lot like Photoshop without the high price tag, i use it above all other graphic design software.


Paint.net is a Windows-based alternative to the Paint editor that Microsoft shipped with versions of Windows.  But it's a lot better than the standard paint, more features than Paint and it's just as easy to use.
Sadly it's only for Windows, so get over it lol.

Great free graphics editor uses mainly the SVG format but can load and edit others. It's avilable on the following platfloms Windows, Linux, and Mac with some tweaking.  Inscape is a great alternative to Illustrator but with a simplier interface.

Opensource 3D content creation suite great for people who are serious about 3D but struggling to afford the high dallor software. It's the largest open surce tool for 3D creation and that's not just because of it's file size... it has a ton of users.
You can use Blender to do things the costly programs do lie modelling, texturing, animation, rendering and compositing all for free which is great in my book.

Sculptris, a fun and engaging way to start off your digital sculpting journey! If you're new to the world of digital sculpting, Sculptris is the ideal ground on which to get started.
