Graphic Design for the Rest of Us

The situation: Desire to do some graphic design for eLearning and other purposes

The problem: Don't have a lot of spending money - purchased software is muy expensive, especially anything Adobe®

The solution: Free / open source software (what a concept!)

I've been testing out the following, similar to the Adobe product listed first:

Illustrator: Inkscape vector graphics editor
Photoshop: Gimp Gnu image manipulation program

Some of the images I add to this blog in the future will be created and/or modified using one or both of the above.

Try these yourselves and have fun!
