You might consider putting your downloads behind a real

I get the same thing with Google docs. The URLs don't go
to webpages. They just go to script. And I'm expected to
let them basically run software on my computer, when all
I want to do is read some text.


Thanks for the warning - I won't even bother trying the link, as it
almost certainly won't work in my preferred browser.

That's an interesting situation. They posted all of their
v. C2 programs with keys and a notice that use of them
was only valid if they were obtained from Adobe. Check.

But apparently they didn't expect that a lot of people
would be content to use an old version rather than buy
new. (I'm guessing it was originally intended as a way to
dump support for their old customers while also releasing
a teaser demo to get new customers. It backfired.)


I don't suppose we'll ever know if it backfired (or what their
intentions really were).

So later they posted a notice that the software and
keys were only for people with existing licenses and I think
they required personal info. Why would they offer a


When I heard about it - I think someone posted about it, probably in the
XP 'group - I went and got it (about three CD images, IIRR), though
never having bought the software, and I don't _think_ I remember being
asked for such info - certainly nothing I wasn't able to give at the
time, and I haven't been bombarded since. (I think there may have been
_one_ "would you like to update" email, but I'm not even sure of that.)
FWIW, I've never actually installed the SW. There _was_ at the time I
downloaded some statement that it _was_ only for people who'd bought it.

download if the keys were only for people who already
had the software? Their patch-up on the situation made
no sense.

So... If you downloaded it from an unrestricted link
then it's perfectly legal. On the other hand, Adobe has
a lot more money and lawyers than you do... So your
legal rights don't mean much.


Agreed.

Often the answer people give is IrfanView, but while I
consider IV to be arguably the best-written program I've


Agreed - it continues to amaze and delight me.

ever seen, you just can't edit photos without a UI workspace,
layers, and multiple undo. IV just isn't designed for that use.


Agreed again, at least the multiple undo. And yes, it really is a pixel
editor - no layers or non-pixel features. (I've often wondered why he
doesn't add at least the multiple undo.)

Though I use it for everything else. For basic image viewing
and resaving as a different format I use IV.



Me too.


But once
I need to crop, paste, or even just add a little text, IS
is too much trouble. Much of that is possible in IV. It's just
not convenient. So it's nice to have a real editor as well.




You might disagree that it's a "real" editor, but for editing photos,
I use the editor that comes with Windows 10 (I forgot what it's
called). I'm sure there are several better choices, but that one is
easy to use and does everything I ever want to do: cropping, rotating,
making lighter or darker, adjusting the contrast, adjusting the color.
It's not for everyone, but it's fine for me,

I mean a straight line. The pencil and brush tools
will do a random line. Personally I don't find that
useful because a mouse or trackball just isn't precise
enough. It wiggles.

It sounds like you downloaded later, after they required
that you "register". When I saw it I checked it all out and
there were no restrictions. The terms said it could only be
used if it were obtained from Adobe. In other words, no
redistribution allowed. That was it. There was no registration.
No email address required. Just download links and keys.
So the later change was like mechanic's example: They
gave away free cars and then later issued a disclaimer
saying that it's only free to people who've already paid
for it.

That's why I concluded that the whole thing was a marketing
ploy gone bad. I wouldn't expect Adobe to care about old
customers who'd lost their keys. They can call up in that
case to get a new key, if they'd registered. And I have no reason
to think there's any kind-heartedness going on within Adobe's
walls. As Bill Gates said about the Chinese: "If they're going
to steal software I want them to at least steal our software.
We'll get them to pay later."

I have a brother who got PS4 with a scanner and then went
to buy the PS5 update. They refused him because he had
entered the company he worked for when he'd registered.
They took that to mean the software belonged to the company
and not him. Even though the company, of course, hadn't
bought an update with that particular key. He ended up
having to get a letter from his former boss, saying the
software was his, before they'd let him buy the update.
Their whole attitude was petty, greedy and entirely unjustified.
He had registered the product in his name.

(There' a lesson the Never, ever, enter a company
name if you register software.)

both can do a straight line. click at the startpoint and with shift key
down, click at the endpoint. it's also not unique to the gimp.

except that by releasing a key, they were supporting old customers who
might have needed to reinstall it at some point.

They can call up in that

The question of photo editors comes up often. I don't
remember whether this one ever got mentioned. I came
across the code awhile back. It's written in VB6. The
code is freely available. The program seems to work nicely
and does much of what a full editor can do, including
"effects" plugins. Yet it's only 52 MB installed.

Disadvantages:

* No help file.

* A curious oversight in terms of functionality. There's
no line or shape tool! (At least I can't find them.)

* A kiddie-style, Metro-esque UI that takes up too much
space.

But it has a full stock of filters, color adjustment, layer
functionality, etc. There's not much missing that you'd get
in Photoshop for a very steep price, in a spyware package,
with a rental model, and a wildly bloated installation.

The lack of line and shape tools is odd. I use those regularly
and in terms of code they're much easier than creating
effects like "oil painting" or "windblown". But for someone who
only wants to work on photos without doing graphics, Photo
Demon looks like a very good choice.

Thanks for reviewing the list which is what I've used over the years.
That was a concatenation of a list of lists but not all my lists of lists.

Those 65 best free image editors, video editors, audio editors,
pdf editors, codecs, codec analyzers, and media players are
just those that I've used and liked for myself.

Some are hard to find nowadays like the free sketchup which died
around late 2017 or super which died even longer ago for utility.

For screenshot capture, I left greenshot in the list of 65 but I didn't
put all screenshot capture utils in that list, where as one example,
I used to use printkey-2000 but it doesn't always work lately.

printkey-2000 https://softfamous.com/printkey-2000/

Same with the many screen video recorders, most of which don't really work.

Most of those do not work despite whatever they claim to claim.
I only put in the list the utils I tried that I thought worked ok for me.

Alls I would want to know is what's missing that works ok for you.

What the heck does that mean? The entire webpage is script.
It links to several external scripts. There's no way to know
what happens from there. It probably links to external trackers
and ads once the script runs. One of the biggest malware risks
these days is from malware makers who buy ad space to get
into your browser.

*The entire page is nothing but script, except for the warning
that says the page won't work without script.* That's not
exaggeration. There's actually no content in that webpage.
It's just an unknown software program that will do unknown
things and share your data with unknown others if you let
the script run.

"I'm not worried", said Private Swifty. "There are only 2
machine guns and a flamethrower aimed at me. How much
harm can they do?" With that, he stepped out of the bunker.

There's no reason that anyone should routinely have to
enable script just to download files or read text. If you
want to do online banking or buy stuff then, yes, it requires
script.

The Box, inc. privacy policy pretty says they'll spy on you
any way they can. They'll collect your social media info if
you give them a chance. The don't respect Do Not Track.
They do use Flash cookies. It also mentions Google adsense.
Since there are no ads evident in the original page script it
has to be assumed that the page script then calls in
numerous other scripts when it loads.
(The privacy policy is readable without script by disabling
CSS. But they do try to block that functionality. In other
words, they've specifically tried to break a palin text webpage
so that you can't read it unless you let them run scripts.
Nice people, huh?.)
That privacy policy page calls in Google, Adobe, optimizely.com,
truste (the people who pretend to protect privacy online
with impressive gold medallions that look like Good
Housekeeping seals), as well as two new entries for my
HOSTS file domain blocking:

marketo.net and nr-data.net

Why should anyone put up with such risks and intrusions
just to download a file? There are clean hosting sites. And
for anyone just arriving from 1980, they should know that
they can have their own domain and web space for a very
small cost. They don't need to use sleazy, spyware, web
services.
