Free recommended software

Last Update: March 16, 2014

Free software downloads for you!

Hi you lovely people at WA - Sunday so a little blog with a lota bang!

These FREE downloads are the older pro editions of newer products, all of which I owned when they came out new as paid products.

Also, lots of video tutorials from them and on youtube!

Here is the list:-

DrawPlus - Full featured drawing prog.

PhotoPlus - Handling images.

PagePlus - Create brochures etc.

MoviePlus - Edit your videos

[If you do not understand website building - leave WebPlus well alone!]

So download them free from http://www.serif.com/ - Free Downloads

Hope this is of use to some of you!


Thank you for your support and likes on my blogs - much appreciated!

Have a magic day!

OldMule

Hello OldMule,

Thank you for sharing these resources and allow me to add some more to your list of free and useful software:
I have been using these apps for quite a few years

- GIMP - Free Alternative to Photoshop - www.gimp.org
- Notepad++ - Notepad on Steroids - http://notepad-plus-plus.org/
- Auto Hot Key - Great script app for the technically minded as you can save a lot of typing by creating a 2/3 keystroke script to log onto a page ie Site,Username, password, all minimal effort (repetitive tasks) - www.autohotkey.com/

Regards,

Jonicas

Gimp - yes!
Any notepad that does not add formatting - Yes!
I cheat using a password jobby.

But all great there - thanks for sharing that and the time out with us.

I'm now in the process of downloading a few of these. Drawing and photography are two of my hobbies and I'm sure these programs will come in use.

You are welcome. Only use the official link when doing it to avoid those who added adware - serif.com

RaineyC Premium
Will have to grab these. I've been using page plus 5 and love it.
Reply
OldMule Premium
Make sure you only use the "serif.com" link and not from other sites as they build in adware stuff.

I remember webplus and photoplus. I think I had them both on one of my older computers that died. They were pretty good programs.

Yours for the taking. I have the upgrades but used all their products for many years. Be well!

Nevermind, I think I just answered my own question.... Thanks.
Reply
OldMule Premium
Just on your pc instead of online, handles layers too. Have a great day!
Reply
FFMktg Premium
This is new to me. Is this similar to Paint.NET... The free program that allows you to do pictures with layers? (No relation to M.S. Paint.)

I ask because I use it a lot, but still looking for others.

cybridge Premium
Almost. But for best photo editing i would recommend photoshop is the best.
Reply
OldMule Premium
Agreed, but few have the budget or the need to spend if they only make 1 or 2 header images in their life?
Thanks for comments as well.

I used Serif products in the past and still get their e-mails promoting their newer product. It's great to use the older product for free.
Reply
OldMule Premium
They still get just about everything done. I have the newest versions but very little differences. Great for "Joe average" user though.
Thanks for comments!

I have downloaded the serif drawplus in the past it messed up my computer to be honest, maybe it depends where you get the free download from, perhaps you could find out where are the best places for these downloads, I'm sure that they will be very useful with a clean download.
Reply
OldMule Premium
That was the proper Serif link in my blog. I have used those when they came out as paid. Will investigate it further though, thanks for the nod.
Reply
archan Premium
I haven't actually used your links, the links that I used were from a free software site, maybe your links are OK
Reply
OldMule Premium
Direct link is http://www.serif.com the - "free downloads" is on the menu bar.
I agree that chances are they tried adding background stuff to the Serif package, like malware.

FYI, I downloaded off Serif's site last month & they wouldn't work, so I uninstalled the Webplus and Pageplus. Support nor Customer Service ever got back to me. Hope everyone else has better luck with them than I did.
Reply
OldMule Premium
I am amazed! If you are looking to use them, please try and download them again, you did join the site as a result? Keep me informed if you have an issue I am more than happy to follow up by phone for you as I am a client of theirs for the past 12 years.

I use all of the full versions of Serif's stuff and they are great- but the point is that the free versions offer great functionality and as such represent a great way for WA'ers to get some low cost resources.
You Tube is chock full of videos so the learning curve is not so bad, either.

Fully agree! Cheers for the nod on that - 3 of us in last 10 comments already Serif users! Cool! Have a super day.
