    I love these collections! I wish I would’ve seen this post 4 days ago because I had a co-worker asking for this exact thing. This post is about a number of online image creation and other “creativity” tools. The site recommends that you use an up to date browser **IE 6 not allowed… EVER 🙂 **. Most of these tools are based on the principle that you (the user) are looking for a way to 1) edit images or create images, 2) you want to store them online or share them to your Facebook, blog, etc., and 3) that you don’t want to have to know a ton about image editors (though some can get technical if you do).
    I’ve used a couple of these before like Photoshop Express, Kuler, Youtube editor, and Picnik. My experience with the image editors (Photosohp Express and Picnik) left me with kind of a “bleh” feeling, but a bit impressed at the same time. These programs are great for people who do not have access to anything other than Gimp or paint (both of which are not very good in my opinion, but have great capabilities in the right hands). I use Photoshop CS 4/5 so it was a bit difficult to go to the limited functionality of these applications. Now Kuler is an entirely different story. I use this on a daily basis. This is an application that lets you mix and match colors based upon a base color and the relationships that others have with it (triad, complimentary, analogous, monochromatic, etc.). Kuler will give you the hex, rgb, cmyk, and others so that you can use that color for web, print, whatever. It is really a great tool!

    對於創作者而言,方便的軟體才是重點,畢竟現今創作都在電腦上完成,而不是在畫比上完成。這篇文章中介紹的大部分都是數位照片、影像以及音效的編輯軟體,而大部分都是免費的。免費軟體能夠幫助創作者的創作,並非每個創作者都有多餘的經費花費在軟體上,而且在教育中,學童也是很有淺力的創作者,但兒童卻沒有金錢去負擔軟體費用,免費軟體在這邊的幫助便是非常好的,
