FREE ALTERNATIVES TO ADOBE PRODUCTS
We all know Adobe is going to acquire Macromedia, and you’ve probably also read blogs guessing as to why Adobe suddenly felt the need to pay 3.4 billion dollars to secure their monopoly. Comments are piling up, some positive and some negative.
If I were to comment on the deal, it would be on the negative side. I just don’t believe in monopolies… Therefore I have compiled a small list of free alternatives to some of the software packages the two companies maintain. Most of these run on multiple platforms, but some only run on linux.(source:http://vinterstille.dk/free-alternatives-to-macromedia-and-adobe-software)
Most of what you need will be on there.
Gimp (Photoshop alternative)
Inkscape (Illustrator alternative)
Bluefish (Dreamweaver alternative)
Blender3D (Maya alternative)
