So you want to get creative, huh? Whether you're a student, freelancer, or company looking to add a creative department, one thing is for sure - you are going to need software to get that creative genius out of your brain and onto the page or screen. Here's the problem. The most popular/obvious programs can be expensive, and often require one heck of a computer system to run them. So, the more you search and research - the more you might feel like your creative dreams have reached an impasse due to massive dollar signs.
Don't dispair. It's Open Source to the rescue!
Open Source means the software is 100% free for personal and commercial use! That's right. You can use these programs to create items just for you, to be sold, or given to your clients for their marketing purposes without any worry of legal issues over the software. Also, with open source you can rest assured that your every move and use of the software is NOT being tracked and recorded as it is with paid-for programs. Bonus!
In this blog, we will give you a list of FREE, open-source software alternatives to get your creative dreams rolling again.
