Free Software for Creating Public Media

Audacity, an example of Open-Source Software

Free and affordable software is essential for citizen journalism, so that any citizen can create media without requiring a professional budget. This kind of software does exist as an alternative to the very expensive professional tools. For example, Adobe's Photoshop can be replaced by Gimp, a free, downloadable, open-source image manipulation program. Another alternative would be to use a program built into your computer's operating system. For example, instead of using Final Cut Pro or Avid for video editing, you can use iMovie if your computer has a Mac OS, or Windows Movie Maker if you have a Windows OS. Open-Source Software
