Default Graphics Freeware Software For Skin-makers, ... open-source freewares


I have decided to make 2 more skins, but wanted to make them look more professional. This required that I have better graphics software then the 'low-brow' stuff I've been using. However, I realized I don't want to to spend the money on the expensive stuff. So, I went looking for freeware...I found some.

Many of you may already be aware of this software, this is for those that aren't:

For all Windows OS including Vista (I have Vista HP on my PC and I have used all the below.)
Scanned and checked for any spyware, viruses, rootkits or tracking software and all came up free and clean. I also did not have to register for any of them or give up my e-mail address.

This is all freeware (some open-source), NOT trailware or shareware. They're free for life.

Full Package Graphics Software (alternatives to PhotoShop):

PAINT.net

Paint.NET is free image and photo editing software for computers that run Windows. It features an intuitive and innovative user interface with support for layers, unlimited undo, special effects, and a wide variety of useful and powerful tools. An active and growing online community provides friendly help, tutorials, and plugins.

Plug-ins: [Only Registered users can see links . Click Here To Register...]

My Take: Outstanding freeware, not quite Photoshop, but way cheaper
Has many available plug-ins for special effects, including the ability to make icons, works quick and easy.


GIMP

Quote:
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.
Download Link: [Only Registered users can see links . Click Here To Register...]
Note: use MUST download Runtime first and install before installing GIMP

My Take: Almost as good as Paint.Net, but I just like Paint.net better. Very good software though. I have both GIMP and Paint.net on my PC

Animation Software (for screensavers and animated wallpaper


Sqirlz Lite 1.2
Website: [Only Registered users can see links . Click Here To Register...]
Quote:
Animate, bend, distort and loop a selected part of any image by drawing an outline around it, and then a second outline to define the shape to be molded into.

Any kind of image can be distorted and animated - particularly effective for things like text, logos, and photographs of people etc.

The animation effects available include: continuous flowing motion, and simple to-and-fro motion - both of which can be applied to any sort of distortion and looping that you can come up with.

My Take: Simple, but yet surprisingly useful and very easy to use. Small, straight forward program that can create really nice screensaver and such.

Sqirlz Morph 1.4
Website: [Only Registered users can see links . Click Here To Register...]
Quote:
Sqirlz Morph allows you to mark features on several images, and the program mixes the images so that each feature on one image moves smoothly to the corresponding feature on the other images - a technique widely used in the film industry.

Multi-morphing is available - any number of images can be morphed together, so try mixing all your family's faces at the same time!

Animations can be saved as Macromedia Flash (SWF) files, animated GIF files, AVI video clips, and sets of bitmap, JPEG and TIFF files.
Download Link: [Only Registered users can see links . Click Here To Register...]

My Take: Not as useful as Sqirlz Lite, but lots of fun to use and again amazingly useful and powerful for such a simple thing.

Sqilz Water Reflections 2.2
Download Link: [Only Registered users can see links . Click Here To Register...]
Quote:
Sqirlz Water Reflections is a way of adding rippling pools of water, and rain or snow effects, to images or existing AVI videos.

The pools can be animated to give lifelike rippling reflections of the scene above them, and can be of any shape.

Choose from a variety of ripple shapes, and control details such as wave size, perspective, water transparency and flow direction.

The raindrops and snow flakes can be adjusted in many ways, including size, speed, direction, transparency and scene depth effects.

Animations can be saved as Macromedia Flash (SWF) files, animated GIF files, AVI video clips, and sets of bitmap, JPEG and TIFF files.
My Take: You'll be shocked as just how useful this program is, with a little "out-of-the-box" thinking you can make things like horses gallop in a few easy steps.


Beneton Movie GIF 1.1.1
Website: [Only Registered users can see links . Click Here To Register...]
