    It always amazes me what I can find on the internet if I just search for it. Like – I’ll just think, “it would be cool if there was a program that did ___” and I’ll search and find some freeware that does it! Just amazing to see how big the world really is.

  5. I rather that you should try GIMP! It is a good substitute to Photoshop.
