    Here's a thread that I guess we could all benefit from - we sometimes hear of an application that can do a specific job and wonder if there is a freeware alternative. If you know of any freeware that matches or exceeds a commercial product, tell us about it here and I'll add it to our list :)

    Commercial to freeware (alphabetical)
    Adobe Premiere => Lightworks, VirtualDub, AviDemux, trakAxPC, VLMC (VideoLan Movie Creator)
    Adobe Photoshop => Gimp, GimpShop
    Adobe Photoshop Lightroom => RawTherapee
    Visio (Microsoft) => ArgoUML

    Freeware to commercial (alphabetical)
    ArgoUML => Visio (Microsoft)
    AviDemux => Adobe Premiere
    Gimp => Photoshop
    Lightworks => Adobe Premiere
    RawTherapee => Adobe Photoshop Lightroom
    trakAxPC = > Adobe Premiere
    VirtualDub => Adobe Premiere
    VLMC (VideoLan Movie Creator) => Adobe Premiere

    Please remember that we have people from many different timezones on the site and if your post requires a reply it could take longer at some at some points because of this.

          Adobe also has a free online editor called Photoshop editor express

                Cool.

                One i forgot to mention is Artweaver Free, which is said to be a stripped down version of photoshop. It does look alot like photoshop but i've yet to try it.

                EDIT: I see it's here already..lol
