Computer Programs Page
Numerous computer programs exist which claim the be good for this and that purpose. However, many of the free programs available aren't worth the time of day. Below is a rather limited set of program links organized by topic. These are by no means inferior products, but are actually good quality free programs for various tasks at the time of this writing.
Check the EULA's to make sure they are still free.
Powerful graphics software for cover design:
http://www.jpchacha.com/chasysdraw/index.php *** Comparable to Photoshop, and FREE.
