Can you really get high quality software that is as good as or better than commercial paid for software for free ?.
Yes, Welcome to our Windows software archive of Freeware, Open-Source and Public Domain photographic and imaging packages.
What this means is that you will never have to pay for any of the software listed here. To comply with any licence terms we have provided links to the suppliers product page as well as direct links to the software download.
Freeware is software, that can be, but not always, proprietary. The software is copyright but is distributed at no monetary cost to you, the end user. (ref: Wiki)
Open-source software is where the programme AND the source code to make it, is released under a license [example] where the copyright holder grants users the rights to study, change, and distribute the software to anyone and for any purpose. (ref: Wiki)
Public Domain means there is absolutely no ownership such as copyright, trademark, or patent. Software in the public domain can be modified, distributed, or sold without any attribution by anyone (ref: Wiki)
We have also listed some free "Lite / Basic" versions of commercial programmes. A lite or Basic version is a cut-down version of paid for software with simpler functions but very often has any of the more advanced functions either disabled or not present.
