And lastly, some links to some handy open source software. Although there are good reasons why many Adobe products have become the industry standard, think Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Dreamweaver, there are some free open source alternatives. Here are a few links to some that we know about:

Gimp It's not just a mask; it''s a fantastic free alternative to Photoshop. GIMP is the GNU Image Manipulation Program. It is a freely distributed piece of software for such tasks as photo retouching, image composition and image authoring. It works on many operating systems in many languages.

Scribus an open source award-winning professional page layout for originally for Linux and *nix desktops, but now also for Windows and Mac OS. As a DTP tool it supports professional publishing features, such as CMYK color, separations, ICC color management and versatile PDF creation. Fabulous!

Quanta Plus is a highly stable and feature rich web development environment. The stated aim of Quanta Plus is to be clearly and obviously the most productive, powerful and efficient web development environment in the world.
