Open source graphics: GIMP + Inkscape + Graphviz

I just wanted to remind myself of some open source graphics programs that I use (or will/should use) from time to time:

  1. GIMP: analogous to Adobe photoshop, except it is open-source! I’m not artistic, so I only use it as a “Paint” program on steroids!
  2. Inkscape: mentioned this before, but it does vector graphics (as opposed to the raster / pixels-based graphics). Looks cool but haven’t really used it. I will use it someday since you can type LaTeX on the graphics!
  3. Graphviz: Downloaded this before and did try it out. Good for drawing graphs (point to point) and structural diagrams, like an organizational chart, a flow chart, and similar things.

All three deserve praise.
