Chibi Photography recommends

The recommended software on this page falls into two categories; free or free for non-commercial uses and commercial software.

The free software is excellent for home use and learning the basics of image processing.

Once you have mastered the techniques and are able to make money with this software, you will be able to upgrade to the commercial versions of the software with minimal relearning.

Further down the page you will find hardware or services that I have used or found to be interesting and will buy in the future.

Free software (some free only for non-commercial uses):
