Via the Web Worker Daily (and I got the point here from the techrhet email list), “Who Needs Photoshop? 6 Free Graphics App Gems,” which is just that. It’s interesting how much this free/share/open source -ware has flourished. When I was first teaching classes like “Writing for the World Wide Web,” I always spent a fair amount of time on Dreamweaver and PhotoShop under the theory that students needed to have some working knowledge of these packages to do stuff for the class, even though students generally couldn’t afford to get this software legally. Nowadays, that stuff really isn’t that necessary, is it?
