    Hey guys, i have really been wanting to get programs like Adobe Illustrator, Flash, and After Effects, but i am not spending the money to buy them. I already have GIMP as a subsitute for photoshop and i wanted to know if there are programs like that that would subsitute Illustrator, Flash, After Effects, or even other programs.

    And for those that really aren't too interested in learning any photo editing program and, for instance, simply want to get rid of 'red eye' with no work involved ... the below has a one button fix that actually works - and works without changing the actual colour of a person's eyes. (It does other things too, of course - it's just that this is the easiest fix I've found for that pesky 'red eye').

    Freeware:

    Magix Photo Designer 7

    I personally use mac photo editor PhotoStudio, similar functions to Photoshop but easier to edit photos with and cheaper to get. It has both versions for mac and win
