Ciao a tutti!

Vi segnalo questo sito che secondo me  geniale http://www.osalt.com/
(Open Source AS Alternative). Purtroppo  in inglese ma  troppo carino.
Semplicemente vi segnala l'alternativa libera per un programma
proprietario e le piattaforme su cui  disponbile (windows mac linux
unix java).
Semplicemente basta scrivere il software che vi interessa e lui vi
propone una descrizione e le varie alternative evidenziando pregi e
difetti di ognuna.

Photoshop is the most well known and widely used graphics editing
software. Recognized by most professionals as the single most important
tool. Photoshop has since it's introduction always been a tool which
has evolved steadily over time - each new version bringing more new
features to help in image editing and drawing. Many of the features
known to everybody working with graphical application originates from
Photoshop. And today Photoshop is considered the most feature-rich
application of it's kind. Basic features like layers and channels are
supplemented by paths and other vector based tools. All text editing is
done with vectors just as you create or select from a library of 2d
vector shapes - to add more life to you drawings. Layer styles is also
a great feature the allows you to quickly and simple create logos with
just the right gradient, outline, shadows and more - and even using
non-destructive editing. Each new version of Photoshop is worth looking
out for.

Adobe also offers Photoshop Elements the little brother of Photoshop,
but nevertheless a very powerful product.
