Ahh ... the joys of open source. I mentioned a few open source design programs in a previous post. Here are a few more: Blender — “3-D modeling, animation, game development in a free open source content creation suite.” A whole lot of fun to play with, Blender is robust enough to use professionally. SynFig — A popular 2-D animation software. Open source, of course. Kompozer — I've written about the NVU open source WYSIWYG editor before. Kompozer is the self-proclaimed “unofficial NVU bug-fix release.” Simply stated, NVU, but better. Gimpshop — I've also written about GIMP, the open source photo editor before. Gimpshop is a third-party hack that makes GIMP's tool layout and naming conventions very similar to Photoshop's, so Adobe Photoshop users feel more at home. DigiKam — A neat photo management open source software package that helps you keep your images organized. What open source software have you used? Can you offer any reviews?
