Free Software from FreeSerifSoftware.com

Guest Author - Diane Cipollo

If you are just starting your web business or expanding your existing business to the web, you know the initial outlay of money can be overwhelming. Well, you might want to check out this website full of free software that can help you get on the web and ease your cash flow. FreeSerifSoftware.com is owned by Serif; a publisher of award-winning software and they offer smaller versions of their software for free. With these five programs, you can do a little of everything.

PhotoPlus 6 is a photo and image editing software and you will be surprised at all the features it has. For your creative side, there are many brushes and tools such as the familiar paintbrush, airbrush, clone, smudge, text and deform tools. You also have the usual photo editing tools brightness/contrast, color correction and red eye removal. There is layer support with bevel and drop shadow effects. You will find an optimizing and animation wizard. Finally, making image maps is easy with the built-in feature that will create the HTML code for your image maps.

WebPlus 6 is a website design and publishing software with a familiar word processing interface. It comes packed with predesigned templates and color schemes. There is also the LogoPlus and Marquee wizards that help you make logos and text effects. You have TWAIN support for including your web graphics into your webpages and FTP support for publishing to the web.

3DPlus 2 and ImpactPlus are for 3D modeling and animation. With 3DPlus you can create simple 3D graphics and animations. With the addition of ImpactPlus ($9.99), you can make more advanced 3D graphics by adding bump map textures and six camera views (angles). The easy-to-use animation timeline and Studio Animation Tab make creating 3D animations simple with many preloaded effects that you can apply to both text and objects.

DrawPlus 4 is a graphic design and vector drawing software that comes packed with preset fills, shapes and fonts. The animation feature supports onion skinning and frame animation. It also has a library of borders and a Border Wizard. You can export your images in several formats including transparent GIF, animated GIF and PNG.

Although the PagePlus SE software is a desktop publishing program and not really for web production, you will want to download that too. It has an easy-to-use interface and many preset layouts. It even supports master pages. Besides the many built-in featues, there is an online library of free templates at the FreeSerifSoftware website.
