Adobe Photoshop CS2

Adobe Photoshop CS2

Our Rating 9 /10
License Freeware
Windows          XP/Vista/7

 

This is an old version of Photoshop from 2005 which is now offered for free*. Although it does not offer the latest and greatest features, CS2 is perfectly suitable for professional image editing and includes all the features that made Photoshop the industry standard. Despite its longevity, CS2 is certainly not bad, and in my opinion, this is a very smart move from Adobe. Omitting those who’ll grab their software from unfair mediums, quite a few would-be Photoshop users will have settled for cheaper or free alternatives, notably the GIMP, but by giving everybody a taste of Photoshop through CS2, I wouldn’t be surprised if some users bit the bullet and ended up paying for a newer version.

Presumably, this means it’ll always be free, and while CS2 is missing quite a few features compared with the latest release, it’s certainly a nice late Christmas / New Years’ present for those who love nothing more than sitting at a computer and slipping into creative mode. Hopefully, this sets a precedent, meaning CS3 will soon become free as Adobe weighs up the costs of keeping activation servers running in relation to how many people would legitimately buy a decade-old software.

Stykz

Stykz

Our Rating 9 /10
License Freeware
Windows          XP/Vista/7

 

Stykz is freeware, meaning it’s completely free to download and use to create animations that you can show off to others or import into other applications. No hidden costs, license or permission are required to use Stykz to its fullest. Stykz is the first multi-platform stick figure animation program in the world (as far as we know), so you’ll be able to use Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux* to create, edit and preview your animations. (*Linux is in internal beta but will be available soon.)

If you’ve ever used Pivot StickFigure Animator, you’ll feel right at home working with Stykz. It was designed to be a superset of Pivot’s feature set, so we know you’ll appreciate the similarities to Pivot as well as the extra features that Stykz has to offer! Stykz is frame-based, letting you work on individual frames of your animation to make it just right. Onionskins let you see what was in the previous frame so you can make adjustments to your current frame easily. New frames can be created by clicking on the “Next Frame” button in the Frames palette, or by simply hitting the Enter key… in fact, you can use the Enter key while you’re manipulating a figure! It’s kind of like taking snapshots of the current frame while you’re moving or pivoting segments… this feature makes it very easy to get smooth animation.

The original Japanese Edition of Pixia was created and developed by the author, Isao Maruoka, but has also been aggressively raised by its fans, which makes this software to be quite unique and different from other tools.  Isao recently added a brother software, Phierha, to seek more advanced functions and UI, while he wants to keep Pixia the same for the users who are so used to its UI.

Pixia is the English version of a popular Japanese painting and retouching software for full color graphics. It supports mask, layer and many other editing functions. You can use your own customized brush tips and even use an image file as a brush tip to create unique effects. Its user-friendly interface is suitable for beginners as well as experts. Pixia supports the most common editing techniques and presents a user friendly interface.

GIMP

GIMP

Our Rating 9 /10
License Freeware
Windows          XP/Vista/7

GIMP is a versatile graphics manipulation package. Numerous digital photo imperfections can be easily compensated for using GIMP. Fix perspective distortion caused by lens tilt simply choosing the corrective mode in the transform tools. Eliminate lens’ barrel distortion and vignetting with a powerful filter but a simple interface. GIMP is ideal for advanced photo retouching techniques.

Get rid of unneeded details using the clone tool, or touch up minor details easily with the new healing tool. With the perspective clone tool, it’s not difficult to clone objects with perspective in mind just as easily as with the orthogonal clone. GIMP includes a very unique support for various input devices out of the box. Pressure and tilt sensitive tablets, but also a wide range of USB or MIDI controllers. You can bind often-used actions to device events such as rotating a USB wheel or moving a MIDI controller’s slider. Change the size, angle or opacity of a brush while you paint, bind your favorite scripts to buttons. Speed up your workflow!

The file format support ranges from the common likes of JPEG (JFIF), GIF, PNG, TIFF to special use formats such as the multi-resolution and multi-color-depth Windows icon files. The architecture allows to extend GIMP’s format capabilities with a plug-in. You can find some rare format support in the GIMP plugin registry. Thanks to the transparent virtual file system, it is possible to load and save files to from remote locations using protocols such as FTP, HTTP or even SMB (MS Windows shares) and SFTP/SSH. To save disk space, any format can be saved with an archive extension such as ZIP, GZ or BZ2 and GIMP will transparently compress the file without you needing to do any extra steps.
