There have been many posts and threads started over the years on which free software for editing, etc. I thought we should bring that together in one thread.

Feel free to add any free stuff to this thread.

If you want a free HDR program, think about Luminance HDR. It is difficult to catch your way around the menu, but can work some pretty good images.

Free Adobe Lightroom equivalent (I haven't had chance to try it out yet though, as installation on a PC is currently a faff) http://www.darktable.org/

As an equivalent to Lightroom for Linux users, just looking at the site and it looks pretty decent alternative...

I'll give it a spin on my development Mac in a bit see what it entails.

Inkscape, open source SVG tool set, useful for designing logos, etc. If you don't know what SVG is, google it, as it's very useful!

I like the sounds of that. I haven't downloaded yet, but the site seems clean and safe, and the software is free.

Download StarStaX

Thanks for posting the link, I download it a couple of weeks ago, it all works fine now but I did have a little confusion about setting it up...
