10 Excellent Open Source and Free Alternatives to Photoshop

10 Excellent Open Source and Free Alternatives to Photoshop
Adobe Photoshop is a given in any designer’s wish list, and it comes with a host of features that allow for excellent and professional photo editing. The biggest obstacle to any designer who wants Photoshop is the price, which can be prohibitive. Fortunately there are a number of open source (and completely free) programs out there that do much of what Photoshop can, and sometimes more. In this collection, you will find 10 excellent examples of open source and free alternatives to Adobe Photoshop. This guest post for Six Revisions was written by Daniel Shain from LaptopLogic.com. At LaptopLogic you can have a look at the best gaming laptops and go through the latest laptop reviews. GIMP stands for “GNU image manipulation program”, and it is one of the oldest and most well known alternatives to Photoshop in existence. If just having the feature set isn’t enough for you, there is an alternative based on GIMP known as GIMPShop. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. Related content

GIS for RIDGE Research This article appears in RIDGE Events, 5(2):5-7, 11, 1994 Dawn J. Wright The increasing amount and inherent complexity of data collected in multiagency, multidisciplinary national and international research programs such as RIDGE will require the implementation of more powerful data management and analytical techniques. One critical aspect in the observational and data processing systems envisioned by RIDGE is the requirement of remotely-sensed and in situ data dissemination and sharing (RIDGE, 1993). Data sharing reduces cost and fills potential spatial and temporal voids in large datasets.

Opinion: The State of the EDM Scene and How We Can Save It “Dancing in the Eternal Present, Before Harsh Reality Intervened:Electric Zoo Festival Cut Short by Two Deaths”.“House of Blues cancels Zedd show after overdoses, death.” These headlines from the New York Times and Merto respectively are just some of the tragic press the EDM scene in the United States has been receiving lately. This past Labor Day weekend photographer Kristina Kauffman and I had the chance to cover Electric Zoo which took place on Randall Island in New York City. It was set to be an the kind of event people talked about for months after, had one of the best lineups of the summer, and brought people from all over the world to one of the most awe-inspiring places in our country; and for the first two days it was. The following is an opinion statement that I would like to make on behalf of myself and photographer Kristina Kauffman.

The Real Story Behind Snapchat Leaked, the Site Publishing Screenshots of Your Embarrassing Snaps Of course it was a brainchild of a teenager. By Jordan Valinsky 5/29/13 4:28pm Share this: (Photo: BBC/Snapchats Leaked) Mastering the Bezier Curve in Sketch — .Sketch App Using Bézier Handles, in Practice The example in the video above focuses on two points (a line), whereas most vector shapes have considerably more points. As such, there are often two Bézier handles extending from a point — one on each side. Here are some of the ways to create a curve around a vector point in Sketch: “Mirrored” is the default and most common method of controlling a Bézier curve. This approach uses two handles that extend the same distance from the vector point, at the same angle.

Introduction GRASS (Geographic Resources Analysis Support System) is a free, open source Geographical Information System (GIS) capable of handling raster, topological vector, image processing, and graphic data. Bars As far as nightlife goes, in Porto, Portugal, it is all happening downtown. A local company, Baixa (baixa is Portuguese for downtown), has recently added another downtown nightclub to its roster that already includes the Baixa bar. The new nightclub, Instalação (installation), was designed by José Carlos Cruz Arquitecto, the same team responsible for the design of Baixa bar as well as the Farmacia Lordelo we have featured earlier. The space for Instalação, opened in March, was in essence a long, narrow corridor with two dividing structural arches that support the building itself. From this 250 square-meter (2,690 sq.ft.) space the designers created a golden wire tunnel where the main materials are concrete, brass and polished aluminum.

DA Software Being a programmer by trade I naturally have a website with some programs on it! They are nothing special, with the possible exception of my QVS Data program which has been my Magnum Opus of the software that I write for pleasure. (Sad but true, my relaxation time away from programming is spent programming!) It would be fair to say that pretty much all the programs that I write that are not for ‘work’ are born out of innate laziness on my part. I prefer to automate all sorts of downloads and will spend months – even years – writing a program to save the time taken to download the file. OK that is a supreme generalisation but suffice it to say that programmers can be very strange and illogical in their logical worlds.

QVS Data registration (Jump to registration form) If you are interested in finding out more about the QVS Data program please leave an email address where I can contact you and I will send the manual as soon as it is completed. The program is free for the basic version and downloads data from USGS, EMSC and GeoNet (New Zealand). The main difference between the standard and pro versions is the data sources that can be collected. Intel’s prototype Thunderbolt Flash Drive puts the competition to shame If you’re just itching for something faster than USB 3.0 for transferring files then take a look at what Intel is currently working on. The Thunderbolt name remains an apt one. I realize that USB 3.0 is just starting to become a standard in PCs and people are very happy about the speed improvements it offers over 2.0 but it’s always fun to see what else could potentially be out there. At Computex 2013, Intel has been showing off their own Thunderbolt flash drive with a storage capacity of 128GB.

Best Free CD / DVD Burning Software ImgBurn is the product I decided is the most powerful free burning tool, as no other software comes close to its advanced features and options. ImgBurn includes support for: every modern optical disc from CD to Blu-Ray more than 10 image formats authoring rewritable discs producing images from file compilations or discs building audio CDs from a variety of file types creating video discs on DVD, Blu-Ray, and HD-DVD enabling access to drives for restricted users endless tweaking of all aspects of the burn process.
