Design Software Comparison: Freeware vs Paidware.
A lot of design software will make your job easier, but the question is which one? This blog discusses when you should use freeware and when you should buy paidware.
Freeware is great for smaller projects. It’s not necessarily designed to be high-fidelity, so it’s best to use it for simple projects that don’t require much in the way of design skills. Freeware can also be used for learning new design skills or honing your current ones.
Paidware is better for bigger projects because it has more features than freeware – like the ability to export vectors or work with more than one layer at a time. You can also expect better customer support and more up-to-date versions of the software. Designers who want to market themselves should consider buying paidware because it’ll help them stand out among the competition.
