Adobe Creative Cloud
Stating the Obvious – While not free, Adobe products are a must-have for serious creators. Adobe offers the industry standard when it comes to image and video editing software. Their products also make life easier when working with or purchasing graphics as most of the source files are in one Adobe format or another. Photoshop, After Effects, Flash and Illustrator are tools that we simply cannot live without. In fact we wouldn’t be in business without them.
