So a while ago I built a list of some FREE resources that people can use to improve their work and workflow. Here it is.

Photo Editing:

Editing, movies, collages, online albums and printing are just a few of the things picasa does

Gimp is a basic photo editing program like Photoshop

IrfanView is a basic photo editor with some good basic tools and filters. Also supports Batch editing.

A great editor with multiple really cool plugins

Similar to photoshop and GIMP
