  • Artweaver

    This is a 'tip o' the day' from Kim Komando. I had not seen or read about this program on the scrolling site so I am posting Kim's note here and the website for the program is below. Free is always good and maybe some of us can download this program and give it a try to 'see if it is worth the price.'


    An alternative to Photoshop

    Here at Komando headquarters, we use Adobe Photoshop. That's how we create most of the engaging images you see on

    Of course, Photoshop is a professional program, which means it's expensive. Unless you are a full-time designer or business, it is a bit over the top.

    Luckily, there is a free alternative. It's called Artweaver and it does most of the basic things Photoshop can do. It also has a few of Photoshop's more advanced features like the perspective grid.

    Artweaver has a very similar look and feel to Photoshop. You can even create images with layers and save them as Photoshop files. You'll also find very similar tools with each program.

    I especially like Artweaver's brush tools. They're geared toward digital artists and painters. You can choose media from Pastels to Oils, then alter their size and appearance with ease. You can even change such things as textures and opacity.

    Note that there is a paid and free version of Artweaver. The free version should be more than enough firepower for most people. However, the paid version does offer some nice additional filters, better multi-core processor support and other extras, still for a lower price than investing in Photoshop.

    Cost: Free

    Jo, when I got my hegner long ago it had a light with it. In the back of the light was an outlet for the footpedal. I put in a 3 prong plug and plugged in my footpedal and vacuum. Ran great for 15 years. A few years ago the outlet on the lamp died and my footpedal at the same time. I had to replace...

    Conversation with Bruce. I need some beads for the dream catchers. Bruce - let me go look through my stash. I have what you need. Me - of course you do. When I first started doing shows, Bruce would go and make dreamcatcher earrings and other jewelry. He was quite good at it. Of course he was. He kept...
