The Contenders

11 Xara Designer Pro

I switched fro Corel Draw to Xara over 15 years ago and have never looked back. I used it in my sign shop for years and then added layout and design sales of 4 color printing as well as creating nearly 50 fully functioning websites for my customers. All from one inexpensive program. No regrets!

Great program for experts and novices... All most perfect which leaves room for improvements and recommendations by users.

Simply the best! One Program that does it all, graphics, Desktop publishing and WYSIWYG Website design that is by far the best there is.

Great programme

12 Cinema 4D

After Photoshop, the most important tool for a graphic designer!

Great 3d program that allows you create anything to your imagination

13 AutoCAD

I think this is the best software for designer, architects and engineers! Can you imagine life without autocad?!

AutoCAD is the most downloaded software in the whole world

Was the in software of the 90's

14 Autodesk 3ds Max

The best for all designers

Very good software

The best software hands down for 3D graphics

15 Inkscape

Inkscape is so great! Definitely my favourite graphics software out there.

Thanks for the voting scores!

is good

good

16 GIMP

Does everything the others do for free. The learning curve and bad interface is a myth, or rather: there being a huge difference in difficulty between this and photoshop's difficulty is a myth. You need to learn your way around all graphic design software, and once you're used to GIMP it performs as well as any other. - airbb

GIMP is the best free option there is

GIMP is great. I love it.

love it

17 PaintTool SAI

The perfect tool for beginners everywhere.

For beginners its cool - confidential

18 Adobe Creative Suite

I think is is more better than other

19 Windows Paint

It has very little, but if you're experienced, you can create amazing stuff on Windows Paint that you wont be able to create using any other program. If you haven't voted this one, you clearly haven't watched videos of people creating the most amazing and unique artwork you'd ever see. - LemonComputer

Program good

I hate windows paint

35 Toon Boom Harmony

I do not know

36 FireAlpaca
37 Macromedia Flash
38 Scratch

There is a reason why I can't really move onto Photoshop - The Scratch costume and background editing things has a button that makes your drawings smooth and the ability to move points around. No other art program I know of have those. Scratch is a very friendly tool for mouse users. - LemonComputer

I'm in this website

39 Fatpaint

The leading, free, online graphic design software. It's a good candidate for your list.

40 MacPaint
