    GIMP

    I started using GIMP to design my book cover, but in the end found Inkscape was easier to use and especially good with gradients. Inkscape is open source too.

    Favicon

    The hosting company here in Buenos Aires allowed my SMF driven forum to be attacked by phishing scams, it spent more down than up and they were utterly unprofessional, not replying to emails or phone calls. I then bought another domain with the same name but with a .org extension, went back to...

    FIFA World Cup 2018

    I use Snagit since my needs are fairly basic and limited to cropping, adding notations, arrows and such and also resizing for online articles.
