          Top 5 Free Graphic Design Software for Beginners 

Not all Graphic Design beginners have hundreds of pounds to spend on all the new software options, especially when just starting a new business or even learning Design as a hobby.  With the latest and high-end software costing up to thousands of pounds, it’s a lot of money if you are just testing the waters in the design industry. I have surfed the internet and gathered together 5 free software for graphic design beginners.

 

Photoshop is a huge competitor within the graphic design business with over 25 years of dominating the market, but it comes at a huge cost. GIMP is a free alternative to Photoshop and is a strong competitor on the Graphic Design market even competing with some certain software’s that come at a price. GIMP is compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux.  It offers a similar alternative to Photoshop if you are already a graphic designer and would like to cut costs.

 

Sumopaint is one of the most capable web browser based image manipulators. If you opt to install the PC-based option it will come at a small charge of $19. To access this software, you will need to have Adobe Flash player downloaded, so it is not accessible by iPad nor Android. It has all the tools which are necessary for a photo editing software, these include pencils, brushes, shapes, cloning and gradients.

 

Easel.ly is a simple to use software which is used to create informational graphics. While this software isn’t the free option, it does what it says on the tin. It’s very easy to use, simply select a theme, shape and objects then drop some text in and you will end up with the graphic! Even though its very basic I recommend using this due to the fact it provides you with a pleasing graphic that has a professional look at no cost.

 

Have you ever wondered where you can find a free 3D animating software that you can download? Well, look no further because Daz Studio is the BEST figure animating, customization and posting tool that allows you to design high quality and outstanding digital animations. It is ideal for creating illustrations for book covers, stop go animation films and logos.  It is one of the best free tools available to all designers, experienced nor inexperienced and will deliver for all your illustrating needs.

 

Have you ever heard of DrawPlus? No? Me neither but after researching into the software a little more I have discovered a very useful gem. It is exceptionally like Adobe Illustrator and has many tools which the Adobe suit does. DrawPlus works very well in CMYK and allows you to output print-ready artwork. The app includes a whole album of pre-set templates and brushed to get you on your feet.
