Available Software

We have a free photo editor and web design editor on our public computers. They're great tools for productivity, but they can be hard to learn how to use. If you want practice with photo editing or web design, you can check out the tutoriols here. You can also download the programs to your own computer.

  • GNU Image Manipulation Program

    The advanced GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP) is similar to Photoshop. It'll allow you to edit photos most ways you'd like.

  • Blue Griffon

    Blue Griffon is a powerful web editor. It's not a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor, so you'll be working with the code directly. This takes more practice, but it's much more powerful.

    If you want a WYSIWYG editor, we recommend Wix.
