There have been some great free app roundups on AppStorm over the last few weeks and months. If you haven’t seen them yet, they’re worth checking out.
If you’re an active member of the Envato community, there’s a good chance you’re already aware that in late April, many Envato staff members set off to tropical Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to have our second ever staff conference and official community meetup! Over the two weeks in which we were there, we discussed a huge range of topics and laid out plans for the future of Envato. We worked as hard as we could to get the most value out of our time there and discussed many topics such as our company goals and values, our development priorities, the future of our brands, future sites and much, much more. In addition to this, we also spent a lot of time trying to get a deeper understanding of the fantastic community that make Envato special. It’s safe to say we all got a huge amount of value from the conference and are more motivated than ever to continue to deliver value to our awesome community – who are ultimately at the heart of the decisions we make.
What graphics/photo editing software do you use? Have you invested in the industry standard, Adobe Photoshop? Have you picked up something less expensive from the Mac Appstore or Net, like Pixelmator or Photoshop Elements? Or are you satisfied with a free alternative, like the GIMP or Paint.net?
What factors influenced your choice? And are you happy with it?
What features do you use regularly? Do you just need to make basic edits to images that already exist, like cropping and resizing? Do you do more advanced edits? Or do you create sophisticated images from scratch?

Legendary inventor Thomas Edison was once asked how he felt about the 1,000 failed attempts he made before creating the lightbulb. Mr. Edison had a great attitude towards the word fail.
“I haven’t failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”
Instead of thinking about failure, focus on how much to you have learnt! When you think of each pitfall as a lesson, you will get the most out of your experiences.
