Very good freeware list!

Already extensively using Gimp and Inkscape … each with their own strengths and foibles.

Big thumbs up here for Audacity. It is my #1 go-to post-processing audio tool. For example, I do a lot of work in Propellerhead’s Reason 10 then use Audacity to convert to MP3 format.

I have also used Audacity extensively, for Lightning research.

Sorry didn’t include it, as it was not related to watchface design …

Cool list! If you guys can share one that includes links to download, we can add it to our “Resources” Help section: Resources – How can we help?
